Man who ran St. Petersburg halfway house is guilty of murder

Troy Anthony Charles, who once ran a self-styled but unregulated halfway house for addicts in St. Petersburg, was convicted of first-degree murder this week and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Charles, 50, was accused of firing a bullet into the head of Samuel Harper, whose girlfriend Charles was purportedly trying to help in his program. His attorney maintained it was a case of self-defense.
