DENVER (AP) — A man accused of using an AK-47 to kill a woman and wound her boyfriend as they walked their dog was convicted of first-degree murder and attempted murder on Thursday.

Prosecutors alleged Michael Close, 38, had gotten into a “verbal exchange” with Isabella Thallas, 21, and Darian Simon as they were encouraging their dog to relieve itself outside Close’s apartment near Coors Field on June 10, 2020.
