KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas City, Kansas, man has been convicted of killing his girlfriend’s friend when she tried to intervene in the couple’s fight.

The Wyandotte County prosecutor’s office announced Friday that 30-year-old Donald R. Haygood was convicted Wednesday of first-degree murder in the 2011 shooting death of Demetria Mill. Witnesses testified that Mill was holding up a cell phone to call 911 and the bullet went through the phone.

Haygood later was arrested after an 11-hour standoff.

Sentencing is set for Oct. 2.
