SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A Woodbury County jury has found a Sioux City man guilty of first-degree murder for the shooting death of another man in the northwest Iowa community of Sloan.

The jury found 30-year-old Timothy Schroeder guilty Friday for the Jan. 9, 2015, death of 29-year-old Dustin Wilder at Wilder’s home. The verdict came only hours after closing arguments in the case were made.

Prosecutors say Schroeder and his wife met Wilder after midnight the day of Wilder’s death at a Sloan bar. Investigators say Schroeder acknowledged that he and his wife later drove an intoxicated Wilder to his home.

Schroeder maintained his innocence, saying he and his wife only helped Wilder find his phone, then left after about 20 minutes.
