ROCKFORD, IL (WTAQ) - A jury deliberated for six hours before convicting a Rockford Illinois man for the shooting death of a Janesville area woman.
24-year-old Kody Walsh was found guilty of murder, after he shot 36-year-old Lori Daniels of Afton in September of 2012, while the two were riding in a vehicle on Interstate 90 near South Beloit.
After the shooting, prosecutors said Walsh stole the vehicle and shot at the driver. Walsh was chased by police until the vehicle crashed in Rockford. He then ran off, and was captured a week later in Tennessee where he led police on another chase.
The verdict came at the end of a week-long trial. Jurors found Walsh not guilty of attempted murder charges for shooting at the vehicle driver and two police officers.
Walsh faces 45 years to life in prison. He's tentatively scheduled to be sentenced on April 7th in Rockford.
