GRANT COUNTY, KY (WXIX) -A jury convicted a Grant County man of murder on Friday, and he is now facing a life sentence.

According to Commonwealth Attorney Leigh Ann Roberts, 43-year-old Paul James was convicted Friday for shooting and killing 51-year-old Barry Kenner in 2018.

Grant County deputies say that Kenner called 911 after James shot him on Keefer Lawrenceville Road in Aug. of 2018.

Kenner was then airlifted to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he later died, deputies said.

Roberts says that Kenner’s family was very pleased with the verdict.

James is scheduled to be sentenced on June 16.
