ZANESVILLE, OH (AP) -

ZANESVILLE, Ohio (AP) - A jury has convicted a man of aggravated murder in an eastern Ohio fatal shooting in a fast-food restaurant.

The Zanesville Times Recorder reports (http://ohne.ws/1h1Cyts ) that Timothy Daniel acted as his own attorney in his Muskingum County trial. After his conviction Friday, he faces a potential sentence of life in prison for the Oct. 31 slaying of Charles Hooper in a South Zanesville Burger King restaurant. Witnesses testified that Hooper had tried to intervene when Daniel angrily confronted his girlfriend of the time.

The newspaper reports that Daniel had hoped to present a tale of Hooper as the woman's "sugar daddy" and claim he was acting in self-defense. But the woman testified she had never seen Hooper before Daniel hit him with a pistol and then fired.
