BILOXI, Miss. — A Harrison County jury deliberated about six hours before finding Michael Ambrose guilty in the shooting death of Marshall Still at a Biloxi car wash in 2009.
The Sun Herald reports Ambrose will be sentenced on Aug. 15.
Circuit Judge Roger Clark delayed sentencing because the trial ended late Wednesday night.
Assistant District Attorney Beth McFadyen said Ambrose was on trial for capital murder, and was being tried a second time. A hung jury was declared at his first trial last August.
Ambrose testified he had picked Still up at a gas station and drove him to a nearby car wash for a marijuana deal. McFadyen said Ambrose admitted he had a gun, but said Still confronted him with a beer bottle and he shot him in self-defense.
