The 11-year-old White Pine boy charged with shooting and killing an 8-year-old girl has been found guilty.

Benny Tiller's grandmother told Local 8 News he was found guilty of first degree murder in the death of his neighbor, McKayla Dyer October 4, 2015.

Tiller's grandmother declined an interview, but did say she is working with the public defender to determine their next course of action.

Detectives found a 12-gauge shotgun and BB pistol at the scene. Neighbors said the death was a result of an argument over a puppy.
