A Wichita man who was charged with firing a shot that grazed a man in the head and then sending letters to potential witnesses an effort to get them to lie on the witness stand has been convicted of four counts of perjury and four other charges.

Sean Windsor, 32, was convicted of three of the charges this week by a jury that also found him not guilty of five related counts. He pleaded guilty before the trial to six of the charges.

The bulk of the charges stem from a March 24, 2010, confrontation outside a home in the 1300 block of South Glenn in which a man was grazed in the head by one of 13 shots fired from a handgun. Prosecutors said that after Windsor was jailed in that case, he began sending letters to potential witnesses in an effort to get them to lie in court.

He will be sentenced by District Judge Terry Pulman, who presided at the trial.
