Ybarra, 29, pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, but a jury found him not to be insane and returned a conviction. The trial began in October.

Paul Lee, 19, died in the 2014 attack on campus. He was a 2013 Westview graduate.

Charging papers say Ybarra scouted the campus before he returned on June 5, 2014, with the intent of committing a mass shooting he did not expect to survive.
