COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A jury found Gilberto Chavez Jr. guilty of second-degree murder in the case of Capt. Daniel Lehman, a U.S. Army officer from Santa Fe who was shot dead in downtown Colorado Springs a little over a year ago.
The 12 jurors who considered the case behind closed doors for about seven hours Tuesday came back with a conviction Tuesday following a trial that lasted more than a week.
