NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – A man charged with fatally shooting his 22-year-old daughter in the face has been convicted of first-degree murder.

A jury on Wednesday found 45-year-old Ronald Lee McMullen guilty in the June 2017 shooting death of Kailee McMullen at their home in Norman.

Defense attorney Michael Johnson argued the woman accidentally shot herself. The Norman Transcript reports the jury recommended a sentence of life in prison without parole.
