Jones County finds Clayton guilty

Laurel (WDAM) - Quincy Lee Clayton has been convicted of the 2009 shotgun slaying of his wife.

Clayton reportedly confessed to authorities he killed his wife, Alice -- but pleaded not guilty in September following his indictment. Clayton testified he and his wife were arguing because she wouldn't let him have his shoes to go to church. Clayton called the shooting an accident.

The jury reached the guilty verdict -- after ten minutes of deliberation.
