BROOKSVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- A Tampa Bay area man has been convicted of helping another man kill his father during a drug robbery.

A Hernando County jury found 28-year-old Angel Gonzalez guilty
Wednesday of first-degree murder and robbery with a firearm. He
faces life in prison at his Sept. 7 sentencing. His co-defendant,
20-year-old Stephen Horne, is awaiting trial.

Authorities say Gonzalez helped Horne kill 47-year-old Ivan
Horne in May 2010.

Authorities say Gonzalez and the younger Horne had planned to
steal prescription painkillers from the father and sell them.
Prosecutors say the son was the shooter, but Gonzalez bought the
ammunition and drove Ivan Horne to his execution.

Gonzalez's attorney says his client didn't know Stephen Horne
would shoot the older man and was already driving away when it
happened.
