GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- A teenager charged in a shooting death in Kentwood may spend the rest of his life in prison.

A jury found Charles Brown, 19, guilty on Thursday of robbing and murdering Michael Bockheim, 29.

Investigators say Bockheim was killed in January during a robbery attempt in the parking lot of an apartment complex.

Officers arrested the teen in South Carolina.

Brown faces up to life in prison without parole when he's sentenced next month.

A second man, 21-year-old Vernon Heath, previously pleaded guilty to armed robbery in the case.
