BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) - A man accused of killing his grandmother over a dispute about “bath salts” has been convicted in the 2013 case.

KBAK-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1NVxkjn ) 19-year-old Dylan McNabb was found guilty Wednesday by a Kern County jury. The District Attorney’s Office said McNabb shot his 78-year-old grandmother, Imogene McNabb, because of a dispute over the synthetic drug known as bath salts.

McNabb claimed he had been high on the drug when he shot his grandmother in the head in October 2013.

During a jailhouse interview, McNabb said he thought the woman was saying she was “the Antichrist.” McNabb later testified that he had lied about his hallucinations.

The prosecutor’s office said McNabb had been angry at his grandmother for trying to get him off bath salts.

McNabb’s sentencing is scheduled for August.
