Valdosta - A Valdosta is headed to prison for murder.

Eighteen year-old Tobee Bradley shot and killed Natavarlal Patel during a holdup at AB Food store in Valdosta three years ago.

He was found guilty by a Lowndes County Jury Wednesday afternoon.  His accomplish, 26 year-old Roger Ponder pleaded guilty to armed robbery and aggravated assault. 

Both men were at large for nearly two years before a citizen came forward with information that led to her arrest.  "This case would not have been broken unless that citizens came forward with the information that led to the arrest and conviction of both of these people," said Brad Shealy, Chief Assistant District Attorney.

Bradley and Ponder will be sentenced in December.
