Jury convicts man in Missouri parking lot death

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) — A southeast Missouri man has been found guilty of second-degree murder in the death of a man whose body was found in a truck in a fast-food restaurant parking lot.

A Cape Girardeau County jury found 46-year-old Glen Scott Evans of Dexter not guilty of first-degree murder on Friday but convicted him on the lesser charge in the death of 34-year-old Sean Crow of Bernie.

The Southeast Missourian (http://bit.ly/1fZleIk) reports Evans is facing up to 30 years or life in prison when he's sentenced May 5.

Evans was accused of facilitating Crow's death by driving 30-year-old Dexter resident Mark Cook to Advance, Mo., in February 2013 to kill him. His trial was transferred from Stoddard County on a change of venue.

Cook is awaiting trial on first-degree murder charges.
