A jury has found Calgarian Kyle Ledesma guilty of second-degree murder for the death of bartender Dexter Bain in 2010.

Ledesma was being retried by judge and jury after Alberta Court of Appeal identified issues with the evidence of his confession to undercover Calgary police officers. He was originally found guilty of second-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 15 years in 2015.

Bain was shot in the back as he was closing up his friend's pub, Our Place Pub and Grill in northeast Calgary, on Nov. 27, 2010.

Police have called the shooting a botched robbery.

The jury retired on Friday, after a four-week trial that heard from several witnesses and reviewed evidence gathered during undercover operations.
