Man convicted of murder during 2nd trial for slaying of French street artist in Detroit

A Detroit man has been convicted in the fatal shooting of a 23-year-old French street artist following a second trial.

The Wayne County prosecutor's office says 18-year-old Dionte Travis was found guilty of murder Thursday in the killing of Bilal Berreni.

Sentencing is scheduled Dec. 17. The Associated Press sent a message seeking comment from Travis' lawyer.

Berreni was found dead with a gunshot wound to the face in July 2013.

Travis earlier was convicted of armed robbery in the case and sentenced to 16 to 40 years in prison. At his first trial the jury couldn't reach a verdict on the murder charge.

Drequone Rich and Jasin Curtis both pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in Berreni's death. Another suspect was 13 at the time of the killing.
