LANSING (WWJ/AP) - A jury has convicted a Lansing-area man of second-degree murder in the stabbing death of a 23-year-old Michigan State University senior at an off-campus apartment.

Authorities say 19-year-old Connor McCowan went to Andrew Singler’s Meridian Township apartment Feb. 23 with a plan to kill him.

An Ingham County Circuit Court jury on Tuesday found McCowan guilty on the second day of deliberations. He is due back in court on Nov. 6, when he could be sentence to a maximum of life in prison with the possibility of parole.

Authorities say the fight stemmed from an argument between Singler and McCowan’s sister, who were dating at the time. The two men are said to have exchanged multiple texts throughout the night, prior to the stabbing.

Singler, who was expected to graduate last May, grew up in the Detroit suburb of Rochester.
