HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - A Beaufort County man will serve 39 years in prison after being convicted of murder in a slaying more than two years ago.

The Island Packet of Hilton Head reports that (https://bit.ly/1t5EOKK ) a jury deliberated more than three hours Thursday before finding 34-year-old Travis Abe Polite of the Seabrook community guilty of murder and armed robbery.

Prosecutors say 22-year-old Quantize Greer of Lady’s Island was shot and killed in September of 2012. They say that Greer and two others went to a mobile home thinking they were buying marijuana.

Prosecutors say Polite and two accomplices burst in and robbed the three and Greer was shot and killed.

The two accomplices, one of whom authorities say fired the gun that killed Greer, have yet to stand trial.
