JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A man has been convicted of killing a Jacksonville woman found half naked with a gunshot wound to her head.

The Florida Times-Union (https://goo.gl/WxlTrB) reports that 29-year-old Andre Deshon Jenkins was convicted Thursday of second-degree murder. He faces a possible life sentence during a hearing next month.

Police found 48-year-old Deliah King dead in the driveway of a vacant home in May 2011 after reports of screaming and gunshots. Detectives found a used condom next to her body. Technicians later matched the DNA from the condom to a profile that was created when Jenkins was arrested in Georgia on drug charges.
