LAS VEGAS (AP) - A jury in Las Vegas has found a 24-year-old man guilty of murder, conspiracy and robbery in the death of a high school student who died beneath a getaway vehicle when he refused to let go of his iPad.

Michael Samuel Solid was convicted of driving a Ford SUV that killed 15-year-old Marcos Vicente Arenas, who held on when co-defendant Jacob Robert “Jake” Dismont grabbed the computer device and jumped in the vehicle in May 2013.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2bIpNHe ) the jury of eight women and four men will now be asked to decide Solid’s sentence.

He could face life in prison without parole.

The 21-year-old Dismont pleaded guilty before trial to second-degree murder and conspiracy. He’s awaiting sentencing.

Authorities said Dismont and Solid ambushed the younger Arenas at a convenience store after spotting him carrying an iPad not far from Bonanza High School.
