A jury needed just over 90 minutes today to find Quadell Alik Grimes, 30, of Hagerstown, Maryland, guilty of second-degree murder and use of a firearm in a felony in the shooting of Winchester resident Kevin Michael Riley last October. The 29-year-old Riley was shot in the parking lot outside Okinawa Restaurant by the 30-year-old Grimes.

Grimes faced five to 40 years for second-degree murder and a mandatory three-year sentence for use of a firearm in a felony. The jury recommended a 30-year sentence to Judge Brian M. Madden. Grimes is scheduled to be sentenced at 9 a.m. on Nov. 30.
