A 22-year-old New Brunswick woman has been found guilty of first-degree murder and arson in the death of a Moncton teen.

CBC reports that a jury delivered a unanimous verdict against Marissa Shephard in the 2015 death of 18-year-old Baylee Wylie, after only about four hours of deliberations.

Court heard that Wylie's body was found in Shephard's burned-out townhouse on December 17th, 2015, and that he had been stabbed about 200 times.

A sentencing hearing has been scheduled for June 22nd.

Two other people were previously convicted of murder in Wylie's death.
