A Lancaster man has been found guilty of first-degree murder in the shooting death of his girlfriend last year.

Kevin Souffrant, 36, was convicted Friday after two days of deliberations in Lancaster County Court.

Souffrant assaulted, shot and strangled 21-year-old Shadae Taylor-Brooks inside their apartment in the 1100 block of Wabank Road on March 9, 2013, according to authorities.

Police said he also threatened to kill two other women and four children under the age of 5, including a six-month-old infant, who were in the apartment.
