WEBSTER, TX (KTRK) -- Jurors have convicted a man of killing his mother at a Webster flower shop in 2013.

Mark Dickey slumped his shoulders and looked down as the guilty-of-murder verdict was read this afternoon.

Prosecutors claim Dickey tried to make it look like his mother was killed during a robbery.

She was shot in the back of the head while opening a safe.

Dickey's lawyer claims the shooting was an accident, that he shot his mother trying to unjam a gun.

The case was tried in March but ended in a hung jury. This time, though, jurors reached a decisive conclusion.

Now that Dickey has been convicted, the sentencing phase of the trial will begin immediately.
