SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah — A jury has found a 45-year-old man guilty of murdering a man and wounding another in a brawl at a South Salt Lake strip club in 2012.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports ( Isaac Gallegos was convicted Friday of murder, obstruction of justice and aggravated assault.

Police say a fight broke out at the Southern Exposure Club on Nov. 11, 2012, and moved to the parking lot, where the two men were stabbed.
