PASCO, Wash. (AP) -- A Franklin County Court jury has convicted a man of fatally stabbing his 21-year-old ex-girlfriend in 2010.

Gregorio Luna Luna was found guilty Monday of first-degree murder in the death of Griselda Ocampo Meza, who was found in her Pasco apartment on May 24. Luna Luna was arrested later that day hiding in the bathroom of an abandoned home.

The Tri-City Herald reports (http://bit.ly/xMHsFI ) that jurors deliberated for about 90 minutes before returning the verdict. They will now decide whether there were aggravating circumstances in the murder, which could mean life in prison for Luna Luna.
