According to a news release from the Harford County State's Attorney, Terrence Daryell Wanzer, 22, was found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of Thomas Burdsall Jr., 16, who died Jan. 8, 2011 at Harford Memorial Hospital after the incident in his Edmund Street home.
A jury levied a ruling Wednesday after one hour of deliberations.
Wanzer is scheduled for sentencing at 9 a.m. on Feb. 5, 2013.
The state's attorney release stated that Wanzer "could be sentenced to life in prison."
According to the statement, evidence was presented over the course of three days, in which Deputy State's Attorney Diana Brooks said Wanzer was at the victim's home playing video games with three others.
An argument between Wanzer and Burdsall broke out, and Wanzer stabbed Burdsall in the heart with a knife, according to the statement.
