TUCSON, Ariz. — A jury found a Tucson man guilty Tuesday afternoon in the death of his girlfriend.

Mario Jesus Dorame was charged with first-degree murder, domestic violence, and more related charges for killing 52-year-old Maria Escobedo. He'll be sentenced on July 12.

On Oct. 1, 2017, officers responded for a welfare check in the 5500 block of S. Tyndall Ave. Tucson Police say they found Maria Escobedo, 52, dead in the home with obvious signs of trauma.

TPD later arrested Mario Jesus Dorame. Investigators say he had a relationship with Dorame.
