MIAMI (AP) - A New Jersey man has been found guilty in the slaying of a retired Miami police captain.

Media outlets report a jury convicted 39-year-old Rafael Toirac-Aguilera of first-degree murder on Thursday in the death of 61-year-old Robert Yee.

Toirac-Aguilera is accused of killing Yee in 2009 at the Hurricane Cove Marina, where Yee was working as a security guard.

Yee, who spent 25 years on the force before retiring in the mid-1990s, was found with multiple gunshot wounds to the back of his head.

Authorities say Toirac-Aguilera’s DNA and a fingerprint were found on an orange juice bottle left at the scene, which police believe was used as a homemade silencer on the weapon that killed Yee.

Toirac-Aguilera’s attorneys deny their client’s involvement.

His sentencing date hasn’t been set yet.
