ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- A Mississippi man has been convicted of stabbing and beating another man to death with a toilet tank lid in Orlando.
An Orange County jury found 36-year-old Douglas Allen Lively guilty of murder Monday. He faces life in prison.
The Orlando Sentinel reports that Lively was in town for a court hearing in July 2008. He was staying with Brian Duquette, who was friends with Lively's brother.
Authorities say Duquette's body was found a day after his death when neighbors found his dog roaming the streets.
Lively was arrested in Gulfport, Mississippi, a short time later. Authorities say he had taken Duquette's computer equipment and SUV.
