ST. LOUIS (AP) - One of three men accused in a 2011 shooting death in St. Louis has been found guilty of first-degree murder.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that a jury convicted 21-year-old Michael Juan Ford III on Thursday after a four-day trial.

Ford was accused in the death of 22-year-old Calvin Ross, whose body was found in July 2011 in an alley. Authorities say he had been repeatedly shot.

Two co-defendants, DeJuan Blocker of Spanish Lake and Antoine Barton of St. Louis, have pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and armed criminal action. They await trial.
