DAILYKENN.com -- Jacoby Maize, 38, was found guilty this week of murdering 34-year-old Justin Hendricks Jr. in 2011.
Hendricks was fatally shot in the stomach by Maize.
The crime occurred in Louisiana.
Maize was also convicted of an arson charge stemming from setting Hendricks' home on fire.
A Kenner man was convicted Friday (March 4) of second-degree murder in the death of an acquaintance whose body was found in his burning home in April 2011.
Jacoby Maize, 38, also was found guilty of aggravated arson, aggravated second-degree battery, witness intimidation and aggravated assault with a firearm, according to Jefferson Parish District Attorney Paul Connick Jr.'s office.
Maize faced a mandatory life sentence for the murder conviction.
He was accused of shooting Justin Hendricks Jr., 34, and later setting Hendricks' Old Jefferson home ablaze to cover up the crime.
Before the shooting, Hendricks had anonymously reported in a 911 call that Maize had pistol-whipped his wife.
Prosecutors said that within two hours of that call, Maize went to Hendricks' Maine Street home on April 25, 2011, and fatally shot him. He was accused of returning later and setting the home on fire.
