TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A man was found guilty in another man’s death at a Tallahassee sneaker boutique.

The Tallahassee Democrat reports (http://on.tdo.com/1q5eG2n) a Leon County jury convicted Antowan Hawkins Thursday of felony first-degree murder, robbery, arson, tampering with physical evidence and grand theft of a motor vehicle in Aaron Goodwin’s death.

Goodwin was found bound and beaten May 13 inside his store, Exclusive Heat. His car was found ablaze that morning in Jefferson County.

Hawkins was arrested in July after investigators say he tried selling sneakers unique to Goodwin’s shop.

Prosecutors said Hawkins killed Goodwin for the expensive footwear he stole.

Hawkins attorneys said prosecutors failed to prove Hawkins is the only person responsible for Goodwin’s death.

Zachary Jones and Marvin Barrington also face charges of accessory after the fact felony murder in the case.
