DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A 31-year-old man has been convicted of killing his neighbor in Des Moines.

The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/1Yw87Rf ) that jurors Thursday afternoon found Patrick Kirwan guilty of second-degree murder in the death of 35-year-old Mark Hruska.

Prosecutors say Kirwan shot and killed Hruska because Kirwan suspected his girlfriend and Hruska were having an affair. Kirwan’s attorney has said the March 1, 2015, slaying was driven by Kirwan’s mental disorders, including a stress disorder related to his Army experiences in Iraq.

Kirwan is scheduled to be sentenced June 3.
