CARIBOU, Maine (WABI) A Florida man has been found guilty of murdering his friend in Presque Isle last summer.

A jury in Caribou decided today that 81-year-old Robert Craig murdered 86-year-old Leo Corriveau.

Corriveau's daughter found his body in his back yard after a scuffle between the two men.

During the trial, Craig admitted to killing his friend, but says he did it to save himself.

Jurors also heard testimony that the two men got into a spat over money for a bus ticket for Craig to go back to Florida.
