A western Kentucky man has been convicted a second time in a murder and arson case.

The Paducah Sun reports jurors in Cadiz deliberated for less than 90 minutes before returning Friday with a guilty verdict against George Luna in the 2007 death of 46-year-old Debra Hendrickson.

Prosecutors accused Luna of fatally beating Hendrickson and burning her mobile home in Marshall County with her body inside it. Investigators found Luna was living with her at the time.

Luna's 2008 conviction was thrown out by the state supreme court due to a problem with a juror.

His second trial was moved to Trigg County after a jury couldn't be seated in Marshall County.

The sentencing phase of the trial will begin on Monday.
