JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- A homeless man has been convicted of fatally stabbing another homeless man in Jacksonville.
A Duval County jury found 42-year-old Charles C. Reeder III guilty Thursday of second-degree murder. He faces a possible life sentence at a hearing next month.
Authorities say officers found the body of 57-year-old Earl Wayne Griffin behind a shopping center in February. Reeder had been arrested in the area several hours earlier, charged with disorderly intoxication.
The Florida Times-Union reports that DNA testing connected blood found on Reeder's clothing to Griffin.
