A Lee County State Attorney’s Office news release says 26-year-old Timothy Dortch Jr. was found guilty Friday of second-degree murder and several other charges. He faces life in prison at his Sept. 17 sentencing.

Authorities say Dortch shot and killed the victim as he drove up to a Fort Myers home in May 2016.
