CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) - A Tampa Bay area man faces a possible life sentence for fatally shooting his girlfriend.

A Pinellas County jury found 26-year-old Alexander Richardson guilty Friday of second-degree murder. The Tampa Tribune (https://goo.gl/4nuaLu ) reports that a hearing for his sentencing is scheduled for next month.

Authorities say Richardson shot 51-year-old Josephine Austria in the head during a party at their Clearwater home in April 2014.
