TUCSON, Ariz. — A Tucson man has been convicted in the shooting death of
his former business partner more than two years ago.
Pima County prosecutors say 37-year-old Bryan Peter Foshay was found guilty of
the first-degree murder Wednesday. He’s scheduled to be sentenced on June 9.
Prosecutors say Foshay shot 39-year-old Brian Blackwell in the head over a
dispute involving a past partnership in a medical-marijuana growing endeavor.
Blackwell was found dead inside his apartment on January 30, 2012 after a
relative had stopped in to check on him.
The Arizona Daily Star reports that defense lawyers questioned a police
investigation, ballistics testing and why a greater effort wasn’t made to
investigate another potential suspect in the case.
