GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) - A 54-year-old man has been convicted for the rape and murder of a suburban Denver attorney.

The Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office said a jury convicted Warren Dale Watson of several charges Tuesday, including first-degree murder, sexual assault, and aggravated robbery for the death of Lakewood attorney Claudia Miller.

Prosecutors say Watson fantasized about attacking a female attorney who practiced family law and planned the crime for months.

Authorities say Watson pretended to be a doctor and used a fake name when he set up an appointment with Miller on March 2013. Miller was beaten and strangled and police found her body in a storage room at her office building.

Authorities arrested Watson days later in Caldwell, Idaho. He will be sentenced Sept. 2 and faces life in prison.
