Man found guilty of murder says he would 'do it again'

FLORENCE, Ariz. (AP) - An Arizona man convicted of murder was caught on police video saying he would "do it again."

Pinal Central reports a jury Monday found Arthur Magana, of Maricopa, guilty of first-degree murder in the killing of Wyatt Miller. Magana also was found guilty of armed robbery.

Miller was found dead from 11 gunshot wounds inside his truck on Nov. 7, 2016. Magana was found hiding at a nearby residence with an accomplice, Gustavo Olivo, in a remote area of Maricopa.

Video clips of Magana talking to Olivo while in police custody shows Magana mentioning elements of Miller's death and at one point saying he would "do it again."

Magana declined to testify during trial.

Olivo already accepted a plea deal and was sentenced to 25 years in prison shortly before Magana's trial. Magana will be sentenced at a later date.
