MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

According to District Attorney Darryl Bailey, Dominic Manuel Gaiter, who was accused of killing 31-year-old James Scott in 2013, was found guilty of murder on Thursday.

Gaiter was arrested in connection with the city's 20th homicide of 2013, which occurred around 3 a.m. on April 14 in the 3000 block of Southmall Circle. 

When officers arrived on the scene, they found Scott dead in a parking lot.

Gaiter was eventually captured in Selma through a joint effort with the Montgomery and Selma police departments as well as the U.S. Marshals Service.

MPD's initial investigation indicates Scott's death was the result of an argument.
