A Jefferson City man will be sentenced in July for the murder of a Columbia man during a drug deal.

A Jefferson City man will be sentenced in July for the murder of a Columbia man during a drug deal.

A Cole County jury on Thursday convicted 30-year-old Brandon Chase of second-degree murder, first-degree robbery and armed criminal action in the April 2012 death of 34-year-old Keith Mosely of Columbia.

The verdict came in Chase's second trial. Another jury in March could not reach a verdict.

Prosecutors said Chase brought two other men to Mosely's apartment to steal marijuana, and Mosely was shot during the confrontation.

The Jefferson City News-Tribune reports another suspect, Khiry Summers, is scheduled to go on trial July 8. The third suspect, Tracy Session, pleaded guilty last November and is serving 20 years in prison.
