HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama man will not face the death penalty, but could spend life in prison, after being convicted of fatally shooting a paraplegic man in a 2015 robbery.

Al.com reports 22-year-old Latransezon Malloy was convicted of felony murder on Thursday, making him the third suspect convicted in the case. Malloy's previous case ended in a mistrial.

Malloy was charged with capital murder in the slaying of Markia Kendall, but a jury returned a guilty verdict on a lesser charge. He'll be sentenced this year.

Prosecutors have said Latransezon was one of four masked men that forced their way into Kendall's Huntsville home in January 2015.

Prosecutors have said that at least four children were held at knifepoint in a back bedroom while Kendall was fatally shot as he was sleeping.
