JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A Jacksonville man was convicted this week of a 2009 attempted murder.
Rakesh K. Patel, 45, was convicted of attempted first-degree murder.
Police say Patel went to the Golden Ox Liquor Store on Argyle Forest Boulevard in September 2009 and attempted to kill Rinku Amin by shooting him in the neck.
Amin was a former co-worker of Patel's at the store.
Patel shot the victim because he mistakenly believed Amin was having an affair with his wife.
When he was arrested, police said Patel told them, "The guy had torn apart other families, and he had to put a stop to it."
Patel will be sentenced the week of May 13. He faces 25 years to life in prison.
