GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A jury has reached its verdict in the trial of a man charged with first-degree murder in the deadly 2008 shooting of an armored truck guard.
Isaam Mattaay Chaplin was found guilty of the first-degree murder charge on Tuesday, according to court coordinator Craig Turner.
Jurors still have to choose whether to recommend that Chaplin be sentenced to death or life in prison.
Turner said Chaplin's sentencing is expected to be heard later this afternoon at 2 p.m.
Prosecutors argued that Chaplin ambushed Juan Salado, 25, of Charlotte, at the Old Navy clothing store where he worked in the Friendly Shopping Center in Greensboro on Dec. 15, 2008.
Chaplin, who was dressed in women's clothing with a wig and large sunglasses, shot Salado in the head from just feet away. The victim later died at the hospital.
DNA evidence and witness testimony were among factors that led to Chaplin's arrest in the killing.
According to the Greensboro News-Record, the defense never called Chaplin or any witnesses to the stand while making its case.
