BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — A three-judge panel rejected a man's insanity defense and found him guilty Monday in the shooting death of a construction worker on March 26, 2015, according to the Connecticut Post.

Gregory Weathers, 34, faces 75 years in prison when he is sentenced in February for killing the construction worker because he wanted the man’s job, the Post said.

Two psychiatrists had testified in court that Weathers killed 31-year-old Jose Araujo of Milford because he has a mental disease or defect, the Post said.
