ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A man who allegedly stabbed another man to death outside an Albuquerque convenience store has been found guilty of voluntary manslaughter.

KOB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1VnA8LN) that Michael Fox was convicted Friday after a jury deadlocked on a second-degree murder charge.

But Fox was found not guilty on two counts of kidnapping and one of evidence tampering.

Authorities say Fox gave 23-year-old Kenneth Boyd, Boyd’s girlfriend and their small child a ride home from a party in September 2014.

But Fox allegedly drove off with the child.

He is accused of later meeting Boyd outside a convenience store and then stabbing him multiple times.

Fox’s defense attorney said at the first trial that Fox had acted in self-defense.

He was acquitted of first-degree murder in his first trial last year.
