BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A 22-year-old man convicted by a jury of kidnapping and murder charges will be sentenced in September.

The Idaho Statesman reports (https://bit.ly/1LDkp6b) the body of 46-year-old Jeffrey Dyer was found in Ontario, Oregon last year. Police say 22-year-old Raul E. Herrera and 22-year-old Angelo Cervantes killed Dyer over his failure to procure prescription drugs and because he showed disrespect.

Cervantes pleaded guilty to murder, kidnapping and assault in May and goes before a judge again on July 28. Police affidavits say Cervantes said he was involved in the crime, but that Herrera was the one who beat Dyer with a collapsible baton.

An autopsy showed Dyer died of blunt force trauma.

Herrera was also convicted of robbery and will be sentenced Sept. 25.
