HOUSTON – Closing arguments just wrapped up in the Facebook murder trial.

 

23-year-old Frank Marinero is guilty of murder and punishment begins on Monday.

 

Police said he created a fake online profile for a woman, then used it to persuade Bryan Blanco to a park in Sharpstown, where he was shot to death.

 

The alleged motive?

 

Jealousy, as Marinero and Blanco dated the same woman.
