Jury finds man guilty of murdering cellmate

Jury finds man guilty of murdering cellmate

A Santa Rosa County man accused of killing his cellmate has been found guilty of first-degree murder.

Just after 2:30 p.m., a jury convicted Shawn Rogers of beating Ricky Martin to death in 2012.

Rogers acted as his own attorney in the trial and also cross-examined several witnesses. He took the stand in defense on Monday.

Rogers, who's serving a life sentence for armed robbery and battery, could head to death row if the jury votes unanimously to recommend the death penalty. He'll be sentenced on Friday.
