Jury finds Kentucky man guilty in shooting death of small-town police chief

A jury has convicted a Kentucky man accused of shooting to death a small-town police chief.

Jurors found 38-year-old Jamie Barnett guilty Wednesday of wanton murder in the June 2007 death of Clay City Police Chief Randy Lacy.

Prosecutors had asked jurors to convict Barnett of intentional murder, which could have led to the death penalty.

Defense attorneys had urged a lesser charge of either wanton murder or manslaughter.
