KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV/AP) -

A Kansas City, MO, man has been found guilty in the bludgeoning death of a retired Kansas art teacher who was known nationally for breeding, raising and showing Afghan hound dogs.

The Wyandotte County District Attorney's Office says Darrell Broxton was found guilty early Tuesday evening of intentional second-degree murder, burglary and two counts of theft.

Broxton was convicted after a seven-day trial of killing 69-year-old Peter Belmont of Kansas City, KS.

Belmont was found bludgeoned to death in his bed on Dec.16, 2012. An autopsy estimated that Belmont had been dead several days before he was found.

The jury was presented with evidence where Broxton was investigated for a similar 1996 homicide in Ocala, FL, the district attorney's office said.

A sentencing date has not been scheduled.
