A Gilbert man accused of fatally shooting his estranged father two years ago has been convicted of second-degree murder.

Tyler McQuade, 25, was found guilty in the case Tuesday, according to Maricopa County authorities.

McQuade was arrested in January 2012 and originally charged with first-degree murder in the shooting at his father's home in Tonopah.

County sheriff's officials said Sean McQuade was shot in the face and his body was found on Jan. 23, 2013, by his two brothers.

A friend of Sean McQuade told police Sean McQuade was at his house when Tyler McQuade allegedly called him and said he wanted to speak with him at his house, which Sean McQuade found to be unusual since they rarely spoke.

Homicide detectives reported finding at least six expended shotgun shells around the home.

When contacted, Tyler McQuade told detectives he hadn't spoken to his father since November 2011. Police said he did not show any emotion regarding his father's murder or being accused of the murder.

His sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 11.
