RENO (AP) - A Washoe County jury has convicted a Reno man for a May 2006 murder of a man in Sparks.
30-year-old Jacob Moore Smith was convicted Friday of open murder with the use of a firearm for the killing of Richard Duarte.
Washoe County chief deputy district attorney Dave Clifton says Smith will be sentenced Monday morning. He faces life without parole, life with parole after 40 years or 100 years in prison with parole possible after 40 years.
The jury deliberated for nearly almost hours before returning the verdict.
Duarte was 25 years old when he was shot in the head outside a Sparks apartment complex in May 2006.
