SIDNEY, Iowa (AP) - A southwest Iowa man has been found guilty of first-degree murder in the 2009 death of his girlfriend.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1L4b7gb ) 34-year-old Brian Davis, of Omaha, was convicted Monday in connection to the July 18, 2009 death of Holly Durben. The conviction follows a trial earlier this month.

Prosecutors say Durben’s death was a homicide staged to look like a suicide, but Davis’ attorneys say Durben killed herself. Durben was found dead in a residence she shared with Davis, and an autopsy revealed she was shot in the head.

A sentencing hearing for Davis has not yet been scheduled.
