A jury found an illegal immigrant guilty of killing Houston Police Officer Rodney Johnson, KPRC Local 2 reported Thursday.
Juan Leonardo Quintero, 33, was found guilty of capital murder. He pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.
Prosecutors will seek the death penalty.
In closing arguments, prosecutor John Jordan pointed at Quintero and told jurors, "You all will get to decide by your verdict what I told you two weeks ago -- he ain't insane, he's just a cold-blooded killer."
Jordan said that Quintero shot and killed Johnson on Sept. 21, 2006, after a traffic stop in southeast Houston because he was afraid of being arrested and could have faced deportation to his native Mexico.
During the trial, the defense told jurors that Quintero suffered from a mental defect that was caused by a childhood fall.
