SALT LAKE CITY -- A Utah man accused of fatally shooting another man for testifying against his friend has been found guilty of murder.
A 3rd District Court jury deliberated about seven hours before finding 28-year-old Anthony Prater guilty of various charges on Thursday, including aggravated murder.
Prosecutors say Prater shot 35-year-old Vincent Samora in November 2007 as an act of revenge designed to silence the man who testified against Prater's friend in a 2005 shooting case.
Defense attorneys insist Prater was framed.
Prater awaits sentencing May 6.
