NEW YORK (AP) -- A former boyfriend has been convicted of murder in the execution style shooting death of a correction officer in Brooklyn.

Prosecutors said Monday a jury found 37-year-old Keon Richmond guilty of second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon in the 2016 death of 25-year-old Alastasia Bryan in Bergen Beach.

Bryan was sitting in her car about to leave for work at Rikers Island when she was shot five times.

Authorities say Richmond used a GPS tracking device to record her movements.

He faces up to 40 years to life in prison when he's sentenced Dec. 4.
