A Rochester man has been found guilty of second degree murder in a deadly shooting from 2012. The murder was featured on the A&E show, "The First 48".

A Monroe County Jury found 31-year-old Jeffrey Blunt guilty of second-degree murder, second-degree conspiracy and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Police say Blunt shot William Klick in the head, neck, chest and abdomen on Copley Street on October 7, 2012. Klick was pronounced dead at the scene.

The case was later featured on an episode of "The First 48" on the A&E Network.

A codefendant, Kathryn Makoroff, pleaded guilty to conspiracy and testified against Blunt at his trial.

Blunt will be sentenced on September 11 where he faces 25 years to life in prison.  He will remain in the Monroe County Jail until sentencing.
