Man guilty of fatally shooting his Xanax dealer


FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- A South Florida man has been convicted of fatally shooting his Xanax supplier.

The Sun Sentinel (http://goo.gl/8hhRH6) reports that Broward County jurors found 24-year-old Robert Morris guilty Monday of second-degree murder. He faces life in prison at a June 10 sentencing.

Morris testified that he was afraid for his life when drug dealer Omar Khan pulled a gun on him for failing to make a promised payment in October 2014. Jurors didn't believe his self-defense claim.

Authorities say co-defendant Roderick Dalton helped Morris get away after the shooting and advised him to get rid of the gun. He is facing a related charge as an accessory after the fact. He remains at large.
