A Maryland man is heading to jail after a jury found him guilty of killing Washington, D.C. man during a cannabis sale.

According to the office of the state’s attorney in Prince George’s County, 27-year-old Benson Thorne Jr. fatally shot 24-year-old Troy Foster in August 2017 when they met up for the sale.

Authorities say Foster’s cellphone records showed Thorne was the last person he communicated with before being shot. They say Thorne later repeatedly searched online for tips on how to remove gunshot residue from the body and clothes.

Thorne faces up to 50 years in prison.
