THE BRONX -

A Bronx man has been found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of a homeless shelter director.

Prosecutors say West Spruill sexually abused Ana Charle inside of her car back in 2015.

After that, officials say he chased her out of the car before shooting her to death.

Spruill has also been charged with criminal possession of a weapon.

He faces up to life in prison without parole when he is sentenced next month.
