7 Eyewitness News Staff

MILAN, Tenn. - The Milan teen charged last year as an adult in the stabbing death of Milan businessman Charlie Reagan was found guilty, Thursday. But the jury did not convict him of his original charges, instead lesser charges in both instances.

Victor Thompson was 17-years-old when he was indicted last year on charges of first degree murder and especially aggravated robbery.

Reagan was found stabbed to death inside his auto body shop on June 16, 2011.

Thompson was arrested a few days later and led investigators to the murder weapon.

After deliberations, the jury convicted him of second degree murder and robbery. He faces up to 25-years in prison when he is sentenced on November 13.
