"He killed his father that night, and he will not take responsibility for it," Ms. Mata told jurors. The teen testified Tuesday he heard a "pop" about 1:30 a.m.

the morning his father's body was found. Concerned, he gathered his younger brother from elsewhere in the house to his own bedroom, then went to check on the father. He said he heard snoring, so he went back to his room. Minutes later, he grew alarmed when he heard the snoring get louder and "wet," so he once again moved his brother and returned to his father's door. He got no answer when he called out through the locked door, he testified.

Next, he called 911 from a kitchen phone, hustled his brother to a neighbor's house, and returned home to await authorities and his mother, a nurse who was working a night shift. But prosecutors said Brian, then 16, shot his father and staged the killing to look like a break-in. They say he threw a rock through the glass balcony doors in the master bedroom after the shooting.

"I can't lose them both." For his own part, the defendant reacted to the verdict first with a faint look of surprise, then weeping as bailiffs handcuffed him for his trip to Bexar County Jail, the San Antonio Express-News reported. The trial's sentencing phase is set to begin today. The teen could be sentenced to five to 99 years in prison for the murder of Leslie Vaughn, but juries can recommend probation. The San Antonio criminal defense lawyer was found shot in the head Nov. 10, 1998, at the couple's northwest Bexar County home.

His son maintained his innocence when he testified on his own behalf Tuesday. From the start, prosecutors told jurors their case was circumstantial: They produced no gun, no bloody clothes, no damning DNA evidence. Instead, Brian Vaughn's own fre never toouttle to start.
