The Denver Post reports (http://goo.gl/NblKuq ) Jose Luis Palacios was found guilty Friday in the Oct. 17, 2013, death of 41-year-old John Goggin. A 25-year-old co-defendant, Floyd Anthony Sandoval, Jr., was previously convicted of murder and is serving life in prison without parole.

Goggin also pulled a gun and was shot.

Palacios could face life in prison without parole when he is sentenced July 1.
