DETROIT (AP) — A Michigan man has been convicted of second-degree murder in the shooting death and mutilation of his childhood friend three years ago in a field north of Detroit.

A Macomb County jury on Thursday found 21-year-old Andrew Fiacco guilty in the killing of 19-year-old Stephen McAfee. The jury also found Fiacco guilty of a felony firearm offense, dismemberment and lying to a police officer.

The article goes on to state the following:

Kristina Joseph, one of Fiacco’s attorneys, said they were disappointed with the verdict and “do believe he used lawful self-defense.”

Prosecutors say Fiacco shot McAfee twice in the head in a remote Bruce Township field in March 2016 then dismembered his body and buried some remains on family property.

Fox2 Further reports:

Mike Thomas is McAfee’s uncle and spoke with us on behalf of their family.

“Frankly the family’s disappointed in the verdict,” he said.

The article goes on to state the following:

He’s convinced the sticking point in the trial was an altercation between Fiacco and his nephew before the shots were fired. Fiacco claims he acted in self-defense, Thomas and his family don’t buy it.

“We believe that if anything happened in that field that night that involved a scuffle between these two, that Stephen realized what was happening and attempted to defend himself and tried to fight off what ultimately became his demise,” Thomas said.
