COLUMBUS, Neb. (AP) _ A 31-year-old Nebraska man has been convicted of murder in the knifing death of a Columbus man.

The office of Attorney General Jon Bruning said in a news release that 31-year-old Eric Henry was found guilty Tuesday by a Platte County District Court jury in Columbus.

Henderson was one of three people prosecuted for the May 2013 slaying of 51-year-old Steven Jorgensen during a botched robbery.

Last month 32-year-old Kimberly Henderson, of Columbus, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder. Twenty-seven-year-old Quentin Critser, of Lincoln, pleaded guilty in December to second-degree murder and agreed to testify against his co-defendants. Henderson and Critser are awaiting sentencing.
