An El Paso County jury has convicted Deandre Vonte Smith on a charge of first degree murder for shooting and killing a father of two outside a home on East Vermijo.

The victim, Alton Joseph Kelly, was found outside the home west of Memorial Park in April 2017. 

At the time, Kelly's brother told News 5 that Joseph was shot and killed after some kind of argument earlier that day. Family members said Kelly was killed by a gunshot wound to the head.

Smith could be sentenced as early as Friday afternoon. A conviction on first degree murder carries a mandatory sentence of life in prison.
