MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. — An Indiana man has been found guilty of murder in the slaying of a used car lot owner who was stabbed nine times in the neck inside his Michigan City dealership.

The South Bend Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/2cGIcnZ ) that 45-year-old David Morris was also found guilty Wednesday of robbery, burglary and theft.

He will be sentenced Oct. 27 and could receive more than 100 years in prison.

Hufracio Arteaga was killed in April. A co-owner of the business discovered his body four days later.

Prosecutors say Morris knew the victim from running errands for him and doing odd jobs around the car lot.

They say Morris also stole two cars from the lot and the murder weapon was found under the hood of one of the vehicles.
