CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) — Authorities say a southeast Missouri man has been found guilty of fatally shooting another man during a party.

Michael Futrell, of Doniphan, was convicted Wednesday of first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the August 2014 killing of Manuel Williams, 36, of Doniphan.

The Missouri attorney general’s office said in a news release that witnesses testified that Futrell was asked to leave the party after arguing with Williams. The release say Futrell returned 15 to 20 minutes later with a .40 caliber handgun and shot Williams in the chest and the head.

Sentencing is set for February 27, 2017. Futrell faces a mandatory life without the possibility of parole sentence for first degree murder and a minimum sentence of at least three years for armed criminal action.
