NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A jury in Lower Manhattan has convicted a 34-year-old man of murdering his wealthy father.

Prosecutors claimed Thomas Gilbert Jr. was angry because his millionaire, hedge fund manager father had reduced his $1,000-a-week allowance.

Jurors rejected an insanity defense after Gilbert’s lawyer argued he was unfit to stand trial.

Gilbert will be sentenced Aug. 9 and could face life in prison.
