KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Kansas City, Missouri, man faces life in prison after being found guilty of playing a role in a 2011 home invasion that killed a man and critically wounded a woman.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/1NC4byl ) reports that a Jackson County jury convicted 31-year-old Victor Vickers Jr. on Friday of first-degree murder, assault and two counts of armed criminal action.

Prosecutors alleged during the four-day trial that Vickers and two other men approached the 29-year-old girlfriend of Edward Ewing as she returned home early Aug. 16, 2011.

After ordering the woman to let them inside, two of the men confronted a sleeping Ewing in his bedroom before he was fatally shot seven times.

A co-defendant, Garron Briggs, later was convicted of first-degree murder and is serving a life term.
