CAMILLA, GA (WALB) -

A Mitchell County man has been convicted of murdering his friend.

Greg Johnson was found guilty Wednesday morning of murder and aggravated assault.

Investigators say Johnson shot Hugh Ethridge during an argument at Johnson's home near Baconton in June of last year.

Johnson told investigators the gun went off during a struggle between the two and Ethridge had threatened to kill him.

Sentencing has not been scheduled but district attorney Joe Mulholland says under Georgia law Johnson faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison.
