DENVER – A jury convicted the third man implicated in the deadly May 2015 shooting of a 61-year-old man, the Denver District Attorney announced Monday.

The jury found Derek Webb, 29, guilty of two counts of felony murder, one count of burglary and one count of aggravated robbery after two days of deliberation.

Webb and two other men – Chad Baluska and Eric Fuhs – had been accused of shooting and killing 61-year-old Samuel Grady in May 2015, then stealing his wallet and truck.

Baluska pleaded guilty to second-degree murder earlier this year, and Fuhs, who was a nephew of Grady’s, was found guilty of first-degree murder, burglary and aggravated robbery charges.

Fuhs was sentenced to life in prison without parole in October, and Baluska is set to be sentenced Jan. 6.

Webb is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 16. He faces up to life in prison without parole at his sentencing.
