A jury found a man guilty after he confessed to murder on his hospital bed. 

Thursday, Frank Frometa was convicted of killing Wilfred Salas. 

Salas’ body was discovered lying in the road near Lomas and Edith back in 2016. 

Fromenta was later hospitalized after getting hit by a car. 

He told a nurse he killed someone a few months back and wanted to clear his conscience. 

Fromenta says he killed Salas in self-defense after the two argued and Salas pulled out a knife. 

His sentencing is scheduled for July. He faces 34 years behind bars.
