WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita man has been convicted in the death of a man who prosecutors say was tortured before being injected with a lethal dose of methamphetamine.

A Sedgwick County jury on Tuesday found 38-year-old Jason Jones of first-degree murder in the death of 34-year-old Shawn Lindsey. Surveyors found Lindsey’s body in a field in January 2013.

Prosecutors will seek a Hard 50 sentence during the sentencing phase of the trial Wednesday.

Jones was one of six people charged in Lindsey’s death.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1iHpj4D ) authorities say Lindsey was bound and tortured by several men in a west Wichita auto shop before he was injected with meth. Prosecutors say Lindsey was killed because he owed money to the shop’s owner.
