East AL man found guilty of murdering his longtime friend

LEE COUNTY, AL (WTVM) – A Lee County, AL jury has agreed to a verdict for a man accused of fatally stabbing his friend.

Gregory Gray, Jr. was found guilty of murder on Tuesday. Gray was suspected of killing Richard De'Vore in December of 2013.

In closing arguments Monday, Gray's attorneys told jurors that their client acted in self-defense.

But prosecutors pointed out that Gray did not call 911 to get help, but instead went out for fast food.
