The jury has come to a verdict in the first trial in the deadly beating of a Des Moines man.

After three-hours of deliberations Tuesday, 18-year-old Kent Tyler III was found guilty of second degree murder.

Witensses testified that Tyler threw the first punch at 40-year-old Richard Daughenbaugh in a parking lot near the Wells Fargo Arena on August 25.

Police say others took part in the attack that killed Daughenbaugh.

Leprese Williams, James Shorter, and Yarvon Russell are all accused of murder and are being tried separately.

Tyler faces up to 50 years in prison. A date to determine the sentence has yet to be announced.
