A man has been found guilty of shooting a man to death during a drug deal in west suburban Aurora in 2014.

Dimitri Green-Hosey, 21, was convicted by a jury late Wednesday of first-degree murder and armed robbery, according to a statement from the Kane County state’s attorney’s office.

About 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 13, 2014, Green-Hosey and his brother, Jaquan Green-Hosey, met Arin Williams at a business in the 800 block of North Lake Street in Aurora, prosecutors said.

The brothers had arranged to buy an ounce of marijuana from Williams, but instead decided to rob him of the drugs, prosecutors said.

Jaquan Green-Hosey grabbed the marijuana and began to run away, prosecutors said. Dimitri Green-Hosey then shot Williams in the back of the head, killing him.

The brothers ran away and threw the gun into the Fox River, prosecutors said.

Dimitri Green-Hosey, of the 1200 block of Fairchild Avenue in Joliet, is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 4, according to the statement.

Jaquan Green-Hosey, 22, of the same address, pleaded guilty to first-degree murder on Feb. 26 and is awaiting sentencing.
