A former football player was convicted of killing a North Texas man. He allegedly was trying to steal marijuana from at a Fort Worth apartment when the murder happened.

Dontrell Dock, who was arrested at 18-years-old, now 21-years-old, was convicted on Thursday after jurors deliberated for nearly three hours. Dock, along with three other men, were arrested following the January 2017 murder of 29-year-old Chris-Dion Russell.

Dock and teammate, then-19-year-old Ryan Tyrell McBeth, were football players at Division III’s McMurray University. They were both arrested at McMurray’s Abilene campus.

Dock was a running back on the team.

Both Dock and McBeth were arrested on capital murder warrants at the time. Now, Dock faces potentially the rest of his life in jail.

According to the evidence, the authorities believe that Dock and Broderick Ross killed Russell before robbing him at his apartment. CBS Dallas is reporting that the grand jury did not indict 21-year-old Ryan McBeth, who Dock said was the triggerman.

According to the McMurray website, McBeth played two seasons (2014, 2015) on the football team, as a defensive back. He played in 20 games, including nine starts, all during his sophomore season.

He had 36 career tackles, two interceptions, and three pass break-ups.

McBeth was also listed as a member of the Men’s Track & Field Team.

Dock was listed as a member of the football team in 2015. He appeared in nine games that season, including two starts in the final two games of the season.

He was second on the team with 411 rushing yards on 101 carries. He also had a team-high six rushing touchdowns.
