ORANGE CITY, Fla. (AP) - A central Florida man faces a life sentence after a jury found him guilty of breaking into a home and terrorizing a couple at gunpoint.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal (https://bit.ly/19p5oFq ) reports 23-year-old Kenneth Curry was convicted Wednesday.

Prosecutors say he was looking for prescription pills when he broke into the Orange City home in April 2013. Curry only found over-the-counter medicine at the home. He pointed a handgun at the 82-year-old resident and ordered the man’s wife out of the house. She called 911 from a neighbor’s house.

Police arrived and found Curry in the neighborhood. He had been out on a $20,000 bond but was taken to jail Wednesday to await sentencing in about 30 days.
