ESTHERVILLE, Iowa (AP) - A jury has found an Estherville man guilty of first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of a 30-year-old woman.

KTIV-TV (https://bit.ly/1JsoYRR ) reports an Emmet County jury has convicted Scott Sudbeck in the killing of Michaela Jordan last February at her Estherville home.

Sudbeck testified this week that he went against his no contact order by visiting Jordan. He says that his gun went off as he was turning to leave and didn’t notice Jordan had been shot.

His defense team said that while Sudbeck did shoot Jordan, it wasn’t intentional. Sudbeck’s sentence hearing has been scheduled in April.

Estherville is in northwest Iowa, about 25 miles northeast of Spencer.
