Girl Guilty in Teen's Slain

OCALA, Fla. (AP) -- A north Florida girl has been convicted of participating in a teen's slaying.
A Marion County jury found 16-year-old Amber Wright guilty Tuesday of first-degree murder.
Wright is one of five people accused in the April 2011 death of 15-year-old Seath Jackson.
Authorities say Jackson was lured to a Summerfield home, where he was beaten, tied up and shot. Arrest reports say Jackson's body was burned, and his remains were placed into buckets and tossed into a lime pit.
Wright was tried with her brother, 17-year-old Kyle Hooper, but the siblings had separate juries.
Last fall, 19-year-old Charlie Kay Ely, received a life sentence, and 21-year-old Justin Soto received the same sentence last month.
Still facing a first-degree murder charge is 20-year-old Michael Bargo, who authorities identified as the shooter.
