A jury in Dalton has found Jeff Hampton guilty of felony murder in the sniper slaying of Tara Swilley.
Hampton was sentenced to life in prison at the conclusion of the week-long trial.
The jury deliberated almost nine hours in the case involving the death of the daughter of carpet company owner Buddy Parker on Aug. 2, 2004.
The jury found he did not intend to commit murder, but said he was guilty of felony murder by firing shots into the Parker house. The carpet executive was out of town, but his daughter was staying there.
She was shot in the head as she lay in bed with her husband and her baby.
Hampton was found guilty of seven of the 10 counts he faced.
The prosecution said he fired an S-K-S rifle 11 times into the home with one shot killing the 26-year-old woman.
The bullet that struck the victim ricocheted and killed her instantly.
It was testified that Hampton was mad at Parker over an eviction.
