Tucson man found guilty in 2011 murder

TUCSON - A Pima County Superior Court jury has found a Tucson man guilty of a 2011 murder.

The jury began deliberations in the trial Tuesday.

Juan Carlos Gil is charged with first-degree murder and other crimes in the 2011 killing of Francisco Antonio Gastelo after a University of Arizona football game.

The jury got the case Tuesday after lawyers made closing arguments.

According to testimony, two men approached and shot Gastelo. One then left in a pickup while the other drove away in Gastelo's car, which was later found abandoned.

Prosecutor Julie Sottosanti said evidence against Gil included his DNA on the murder weapon and the truck.

Defense attorney Joel Chorny said the real killer is still on the loose.
