ARTESIA, N.M. (KRQE) - One of the two men police say posed as drug agents and killed an Artestia man has been found guilty.
A District Court jury returned the verdict Saturday finding Matthew Sloan, 30, guilty of first degree murder, tampering with evidence and burglary.
Police say Sloan and Senovia Mendoza went to Tim Wallace's house looking for drugs in January 2012.
They kicked in Wallace's door and claimed to be members of the Pecos Valley Drug Task Force.
During a fight with Wallace, a gun went off. The bullet hit Wallace in the head and killed him.
Sloan should be sentenced in about 60 days.
