TUCSON - A jury has found a man guilty of Second-Degree Murder in a fatal shooting from 2011 that police say was a case of road rage turned deadly.
A jury has found 25-year-old Andres Buelna guilty of Second-Degree Murder for the shooting death of Benny Caserez.
Police say Buelna shot and killed then-50-year-old Benny Casarez, Jr. in August 2011 after a traffic dispute in the parking lot of the Jack in the Box at Fort Lowell Road and Campbell Avenue.
Shortly after the incident, Lexi Casarez, one of Benny's daughters said: "The last two days have been honestly like a nightmare. Just to imagine what he went through seeing a gun pulled out on him."
Benny and his high school sweetheart, Kathryn, never married, but were side-by-side for 35 years.
"My dad was really outgoing, he would always make everybody laugh," Lexi said.
Buelna faces a prison sentence of 10 to 22 years for the Second-Degree Murder charge. He is scheduled to be sentenced on December 3 in Pima County Superior Court.
