MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW)--Jurors found Raul Ponce-Rocha guilty of first degree intentional homicide in the death of 18-year-old Breanna Schneller in May 2009. He faces a mandatory life sentence.

12 Jurors deliberated for about 1 and a half hours to come to the unanimous decision. Judge Patrick Brady sequestered the La Crosse County jurors for 7 days in Marathon County as they listened to arguments from the prosecution and defense in Ponce-Rocha's murder trial.

A judge will decide on parole after 20 years.
