A British man who stabbed a U.K. Conservative lawmaker to death at a constituency meeting was found guilty of murder by a London jury.

Ali Harbi Ali, 26 years-old, was convicted for the killing of David Amess in October last year and for a second offense of preparing acts of terrorism, the Crown Prosecution Service said Monday.
