CHICKASHA, Okla. (AP) - A Grady County man has been found guilty in the 2014 fatal shooting of his girlfriend.

The Express-Star (https://bit.ly/1ZzSlGj ) reports that 33-year-old Lofton Gray was found guilty of first-degree murder, larceny of a motor vehicle and attempted larceny of a motor vehicle.

Authorities say a family member found 24-year-old Amanda Cecil’s body Sept. 5, 2014. An autopsy report showed her death was caused by a gunshot wound to the head.

Gray was arrested two days later in New Mexico following what police say was a road-rage incident that left him injured.

Gray’s attorney said he was guilty of the car theft charges, but not of murder.

The jury recommended a sentence of life without parole for the first-degree murder charge. Gray is scheduled to be sentenced April 12.
