TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — A Twin Falls man has been found guilty of shooting his brother.
The shooter, 31-year-old Juan Roberto Jimenez, said he acted in self-defense.
Police arrested Jimenez after his brother, Jorge Alvarado, was shot and wounded in February of this year.
On Friday, a 5th District Court jury convicted Jimenez of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon for shooting Alvarado, the Times-News reports.
The jury also found Jimenez to be a persistent violator with three felony convictions.
In 2000 he was convicted of burglary, and in 2003 of grand theft by possession of stolen property.
Jimenez is also scheduled to go on trial in December on three counts of lewd and lascivious conduct after police say he raped a 14-year-old girl.
District Judge Randy Stoker revoked Jimenez's bond following the jury's verdict.
