A Sacramento jury convicted Nathaniel Carter in the shooting death of another man two years ago in a pot robbery attempt.
The jury returned the verdict against Carter on Thursday, finding him guilty of first degree murder and attempted robbery in the Oct. 29, 2010 homicide of Steven Carmassi.
Carter, with co-defendants Latice Collins and DeJohng Taylor, tried to rob Carmassi at gunpoint as he sat in his truck in the parking lot of a supermarket on Garfield Avenue near Madison Avenue and Interstate 80.
When Carmassi tried to drive away, Carter shot him in the chest through the driver's side window. During trial, a witness described Carmassi as the "weed dealer to the weed dealers" in her neighborhood.
Collins pleaded guilty to first degree murder and attempted robbery before jury selection began. He will receive a sentence of 26 years to life in prison, according to a Sacramento County District Attorney press release.
Taylor pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and will receive a sentence of a maximum of 12 years in prison.
Carter faces a possible sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole. He is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 8.
