A Central Texas man faces up to life in prison after being found guilty of murder in the shooting death of his landlord.

Hays County jurors Monday found 28-year-old Louis Anthony Ramos guilty of murder in the June 2014 shooting death of 48-year-old Johnny Saxton.

Ramos, who rented a trailer on Saxton's property, was also found guilty of two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for pointing a gun and threatening the lives of Saxton's 13-year-old daughter and his 75-year-old mother after the shooting.
