NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey officials say a man has been convicted on murder and gun charges in a 2013 shooting death in the state’s largest city.

Acting Essex County Prosecutor Robert Laurino said that Luis Mangual was found guilty by a jury on Friday.

Officials say Mangual fatally shot Jose Alfaro in front of his home in Newark in December of 2013.

Mangual faces life in prison.

Sentencing is expected soon.

It was not immediately clear whether Mangual had an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
