WASHINGTON — A jury has convicted a man of murder and other charges in the 2000 killing of a witness set to testify in a murder trial.

Anthony Gray of Washington was found guilty Tuesday. Prosecutors argued the 36-year-old Gray was part of a group that sold drugs and committed other crimes in Southeast Washington in the 1990s. Prosecutors said that when two group members were about to go on trial for a 1999 murder, Gray and another person kidnapped a witness, 20-year-old Robert McManus, and shot him to prevent him from testifying.

Gray was acquitted Tuesday of a second killing, the 1999 murder of 18-year-old Kelvin Howard, who was fatally shot in his car.

Sentencing is set for Feb. 6. Gray's attorney did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment.
