A jury took about an hour to return the guilty verdicts for 33-year-old Charles Pearce, who killed 42-year-old Mike McCue (pictured below) and shot at Pearce’s stepfather, Michael Otis, in Jacksonville Beach but missed.

A sentencing hearing for Pearce is set for June 2.

During closing arguments Friday morning, prosecutor John Guy said McCue spent his last day on Earth working on the yard with his girlfriend. He said that was turned into “a universal nightmare by a man with evil in his heart and a loaded gun.”
