SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Two men have been convicted of killing one teenager and wounding another at a 2006 Fourth of July party in Salt Lake City.

Twenty-two-year-old Anthony David Milligan and 23-year-old Marco Mike Heimuli were convicted of murder and attempted homicide, with weapons enhancements for each charge. Prosecutor Alicia Cook says both face possible life sentences.

2 men convicted in 2006 Utah party killing

A seven-man, two-woman jury deliberated a little over two hours before reaching its verdict Friday night.

Eighteen-year-old Tevita Finau Vaenuku was shot and killed after authorities say he tried to help his girlfriend, who was threatened at the party attended by gang members.

Milligan is already serving up to life in prison for another killing in 2006.
