KENNEWICK, Wash. (AP) - A jury returned a guilty verdict Monday against a Tri-Cities woman for shooting and killing her friend after finding her in bed with her fiancé over two years ago.
KOMO-TV reports the Benton County Superior Court jury found Amy Sue Brown of Prosser guilty of second-degree murder after deliberating for less than three hours.
According to court documents, Amy Brown, her fiancé Brandon, her friend Amanda Hill and Hill’s boyfriend Ben were celebrating Brown’s birthday in a camper next to her home.
The four were allegedly drinking when Brown’s fiancé headed inside to go to bed. Amanda Hill went inside after him to use the bathroom.

Brown claimed that Hill attacked her, but she managed to grab a gun from her car and shoot Hill in the chest, according to court records.
Brown’s fiancé called 911 but when deputies arrived Hill was dead.
