JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A St. Louis man has been convicted in the shooting death of a central Missouri man.

A Cole County jury on Thursday convicted 36-year-old Calvin Hutson of second-degree murder and three other charges filed after the December 2012 killing in Jefferson City of 41-year-old Andre Hudson of Holts Summit.

The Jefferson City News-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1k14VH8 ) sentencing is expected later this summer. Hutson faces sentences ranging from 10 years to life in prison.

Prosecutors argued Hutson and another man set up a drug deal with Hudson but intended to rob him. Defense attorneys argued Hutson shot the victim in self-defense after Hudson started shooting.

His co-defendant, Justin Beasley of Jefferson City, is serving a 10-year sentence for his role in the death.
