New York: A man accused of killing his wealthy father for cutting his allowance has been convicted of murder, with a New York jury rejecting his insanity defence.

Thomas Gilbert Jr showed no emotion as the verdict was delivered Friday.

 

The 35-year-old is set for sentencing August 9. He faces up to life in prison.

A product of a privileged upbringing that included private schools and Princeton University, he shot hedge fund manager Thomas Gilbert Sr in the elder man’s Manhattan apartment in 2015.

The son has schizophrenia and other psychiatric problems. His lawyer said Gilbert Jr was too mentally ill to understand the consequences of shooting his father.
