OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — An Iowa man has been convicted of murder in the 2018 stabbing death of a Bellevue man during a botched robbery.

Raymond Davis, 31, of Des Moines, Iowa, was convicted Tuesday of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit robbery and a weapons count in the death of 39-year-old Brent Quigley, the Omaha World-Herald reported.

Davis is one of five people charged in Quigley’s death. Police have said Davis and another man, 47-year-old Christopher Reagan, fatally stabbed Quigley at his home in June 2018 as part of a plan to steal drugs and money from Quigley. Officers found Quigley lying near the front door of his Bellevue home with at least 20 stab wounds.

Alisia Cooke, 30, has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and awaits sentencing in November. Jonathan Riesgaard, 34, has pleaded guilty to being an accessory to a robbery and also awaits sentencing in November.

Krystal R. Martin, 22, awaits trial on a charge of being an accessory to murder.
