WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A man has been convicted in a cellphone store robbery shooting that left a retired Kansas guidance counselor so seriously injured that doctors had to amputate her hands and feet.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/2dS3NgQ ) reports that 27-year-old James Michael Phillips was found guilty Monday of nine counts, including attempted first-degree murder. Prosecutors said he shot Julie Dombo while trying to rob an AT&T; store in Derby in August 2015.

Phillips also was found guilty of attempted second-degree murder for shooting at a Derby police officer. The 27-year-old Phillips acted as his own attorney during the trial.

Sentencing is set for Dec. 9 in Sedgwick County District Court.

Dombo says Phillips put her “in prison for life.” She says he’s “got to be in prison for life to make it even.”
