HANNIBAL, Mo. (AP) - A woman has been convicted in the fatal shooting of an eastern Missouri convenience store clerk during a botched robbery.

A Ralls County jury found Krystal Tresler of Hannibal guilty Thursday of second-murder murder and first-degree robbery in the 2013 killing of Adrienne Arnett.

The Missouri attorney general’s office says in a news release that Tresler was among five people who planned to rob the store where Arnett was working just west of Hannibal. The release says Tresler provided her van and gave the driver directions on how to get to the gas station.

One of the other co-defendants pleaded guilty previously to shooting Arnett in the face. She died at the scene.

Sentencing is set for May 11. The jury recommended 10-year sentences on each of the two counts.
