Barry David Brown, a 52-year-old Calgary man, has been found guilty of first degree murder in the 2001 death of 37-year-old Corinne Belanger.
The body of Belanger, a mother of one, was discovered in her northeast home on April 16, 2001. She had been shot to death the previous evening, Easter Sunday.
Barry David Brown admitted to the court he had been illegally importing guns in 2001 and had sold a gun to one of Belanger's friends on the night of the murder. Brown's DNA was discovered on the murder weapon but he insists that occurred at the time of the sale to the friend. Brown was formally charged in connection to Belanger's death in 2010.
The jury consisting of six men and six women found Brown guilty of the first degree murder charge on Friday afternoon.
Sentencing for the 52-year-old is scheduled for Monday, March 11.
