(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The man accused of shooting a St. Joseph woman during a 2010 drive-by shooting has been found guilty.

A jury convicted Armon Thompson Thursday on first-degree assault and armed criminal action for his involvement in the 2010 shooting of Genea Weston.

Weston was found in her SUV with a gun shot wound to the head in October of 2010.

During testimony, it was revealed that her vehicle was misidentified during an ongoing dispute between rival gang members.

After the guilty verdict was read, Weston says she felt a sigh of relief knowing she can finally move on with her life.

"I'm just happy, now I'm just happy. From now on, I'll be happy and there can't be nothing you can say to put me in a bad mood. So I can just be out here doing the things I used to do," stated Weston.

Weston says now that this is all behind her she plans to focus on the future and spending time with her family.

"I feel great, God is good all the time, all the time God is good. We're just happy that he's just gonna be gone forever and nobody else got to look at him," added Weston.

Thompson is already serving a life sentence for armed criminal action in the 2010 shooting death of Jordan Bartram.

He's expected back in court September 5 for sentencing.
