Man faces up to life sentence in carjack-killing

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A 27-year-old New Orleans man faces a possible life prison sentence after being found guilty of a carjacking and killing more than seven years ago.
A jury convicted Charles Raymond on Thursday.
Prosecutors said Raymond helped carjack Nathaniel Robertson on June 9, 2004. Authorities said Robertson was shot five times with an assault rifle as he was walking toward his parked Hummer. Robertson was killed on the spot.
Witnesses testified that Raymond later bragged about the killing after being freed from state custody after only 60 days.
Raymond also faces a possible $250,000 fine. U.S. District Judge Lance Africk will sentence Raymond on Jan. 11.
