BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A jury has convicted a Billings man of hiding a camera in his former girlfriend’s shower.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1A0DRqO ) jurors deliberated for about two hours Tuesday before convicting 42-year-old Terrill Stoltz of felony stalking and misdemeanor surreptitious visual observation or recordation.

Stoltz said he’d installed the camera to keep an eye on chickens he was cleaning in the bathtub and forgot to remove it when he was done.

Stoltz’s ex-girlfriend noticed a hole underneath the soap tray in her shower after returning from a trip in July 2014. She noticed a camera lens in August. Court records say she covered up the lens and when she got out of the shower, she saw Stoltz walking away with camera equipment.

District Judge Mary Jane Knisely scheduled sentencing for July 19. Stoltz remains jailed.
