A Rochester man has been convicted for the death of a RIT professor. 

Jerrell Henry was found guilty of first-degree Tuesday. Investigators say Henry and his girlfriend, Natalie Johnson entered Edline Chun's home on Hazelwood Terrace on February 3. They say the couple robbed her and then Henry shot her twice in the head. Chun's body was found in a ravine in Tryon Park three days later.  Chun was 73-years-old.

Investigators say Henry, who was out on parole on February 3, murdered Chun while he was wearing an electronic monitoring device.  That helped them place Henry at ths scene of the robbery and the location where Chun's body was found. 

Henry will be sentenced on January 14. He faces 25 years to life in prison. Johnson was convicted of first-degree murder in October. She will be sentenced on Wednesday. She also faces 25 years to life in prison.
