MILTON, Fla. — A Florida man faces a possible life sentence for fatally shooting his girlfriend and wounding the woman’s daughter.

News outlets report that 58-year-old Christopher Warrick was found guilty Friday of second-degree murder, aggravated battery and aggravated assault. His sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 12.
