DALLAM COUNTY -- A man is found guilty of hiding evidence in a friend's death.

A Dallam County jury found 44-year-old Dennis May guilty of Tampering With Evidence.

The DA says May and Louis Kelly were stealing copper wire from electric poles in 2012.

Kelly was electrocuted and died.

Officials say may hid the copper wire from police.

The judge is expected to sentence him in next month.
