THE BRONX - A 22-year-old man is facing 25 years to life behind bars in connection with a Bronx murder from back in Feb. 2012. 

After a month-long trial, Eugene Graham was found guilty Thursday of second-degree murder in the death of 23-year-old Elijah Green. 

Green was shot to death at the McKinley Houses on East 163rd Street during a turf war over drugs. 

Prosecutors say the two had known each other for nearly 10 years, but their relationship apparently soured when Green began selling drugs in Graham's territory.
