SAN ANTONIO — A former high school football star has been found guilty of helping his uncle plot the murder of his aunt.

Twenty-nine-year-old Leonard Roundtree III denied knowing about his uncle Alvin Roundtree’s plan to kill Army Capt. Mona McFadden. Prosecutors convinced a jury that Roundtree agreed to deliver the payment to a hit man contracted by his uncle to kill McFadden.

Roundtree faces up to life in prison at sentencing Aug. 1.

Alvin Roundtree is also awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty last month to shooting McFadden seven times last June outside her office at the Army Medical Department Center at Fort Sam Houston where she worked as an instructor. She survived, prompting the alleged murder-for-hire plot while Roundtree sat in jail.
