Burton also testified about disposing of the gun in a trash container near a park the same day Irving was killed. He turned himself in to police the following morning.
Co-defendant Davian Blair pleaded guilty in the case and received a reduced sentence in exchange for his testimony. Asked if he saw anyone in the other car with a gun, Blair, the driver of the gold car, answered, “No.”
Burton was visibly upset as he left the courtroom and shouted an expletive as deputies accompanied him to the courthouse jail elevator. Members of Burton's family wept as they left the courtroom.
The panel also found Burton guilty of three counts of intentionally shooting a firearm from another vehicle and recommended two years in prison on each count.
He is set to be sentenced May 3 by Oklahoma County District Judge Jerry D. Bass.
