Des Moines man convicted in fatal shooting

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Friday a Polk County jury found 21-year-old Matthew Grady of Des Moines guilty of first-degree murder.

The jury convicted Grady despite his denial that he had anything to do with the August 2009 shooting of 37-year-old Stephen Scott.

Scott was shot through the back while behind the wheel of his car last Aug. 17. The car then crashed into a tree.

Prosecutors say Grady admitted to police that he was in Scott's car about 10 minutes before the shooting.

Defense attorneys argued that Grady got out of the car before the shooting.
