GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- Two men are facing life in prison for the murder of a GVSU advisor in his home.
A jury Monday found Timothy Miller, 25, guilty of robbery and felony murder in the September 2012 death of Santiago Zapata.
A separate jury reached the same verdict against Miller's co-defendant, Maceo Scott, 25, last week, but the verdict was sealed until the jury in Miller's trial reached its decision.
Zapata, 50, was found beaten and stabbed in the basement of his Myrtle St. NW home. Prosecutors say Miller and Scott intended to rob Zapata, but their plan fell apart and led to the man's murder.
Because of the felony murder conviction, both men are facing a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole, according to a court official.
Scott and Miller will be sentenced on June 6.
