A Wichita man was convicted of all charges Friday for his role in the Jan. 2 shooting death of Shawn Rhone.

Milo Brown, 22, was the first of three brothers to stand trial on first-degree murder and attempted aggravated robbery charges.

Wichita police said Rhone, 42, was shot while delivering marijuana to the 1500 block of Northeast Parkway, then drove to a QuikTrip at 13th and Oliver before collapsing in the parking lot.

Prosecutors said cellphone records showed that Brown lured Rhone to Northeast Parkway on the night of the shooting, and that GPS equipment attached to an ankle bracelet he was wearing showed that he was at the scene when the shots were fired.

Brown will be sentenced Dec. 20 by District Judge Ben Burgess.
