Steven Seay found guilty of murder


The man accused of shooting and killing a 17-year-old at a Huntsville nightclub in 2010 was found guilty Friday.

After hearing two days of testimonies, a jury convicted Steven Seay, 24, of murdering James Price at the Infinity nightclub on June 2010.

The shooting erupted when Seay, his brother and his cousin began fighting with several others during a teen party at the club, according to investigators.

Two shots were fired, one of which hit Price in the head, killing him.

The defense's case maintained that it was unclear who fired the shot that killed Price, since other witnesses testified they heard multiple shots that night.

On Thursday, prosecutors presented an audio recording of police questioning Seay the night of the shooting, after Seay was read his Miranda rights.

In the recording, Seay confessed to police he fired a gun during the fight but used it to scare and did not intend to shoot.

Seay's sentencing is scheduled on May 9.

A judge denied a request for a pre-sentence bond.
