Officials said that a man has been convicted of murder in the first degree and sentenced to a life term in prison for a road rage incident in 2018 in which a child was killed and his mother injured in a Denver suburb.
Jeremy Webster (28), was accused by police of killing a boy aged 13 and wounding his mother outside a Westminster business complex, Colorado in June 2018.
The Adams County Court Clerk's Office announced Wednesday that Webster, in addition to being convicted of murder, was also found guilty for attempted murder and assault during the attack.
Jon Sarche, a court spokesperson, said that the only sentence possible for first-degree homicide in Colorado was life imprisonment without parole.
Webster didn't know the victims when they met on the road on June 14, 2018. He then followed them and shot Vaughn Bigelow, Jr., in what the police called a 'road-rage' incident.
Webster admitted the shooting, and entered a not guilty plea due to insanity.
Webster did not react to the verdict when it was announced in court on Wednesday. He drank water from a glass as the verdict read.
