Jason Cozmanoff, 44, was found guilty of reckless homicide, criminal recklessness and 11 other counts in the hit-and-run death of a Lake County jail guard struck by a vehicle while jogging with co-workers.

A jury deliberated four hours Wednesday before finding Cozmanoff, of Lakes of the Four Seasons, guilty of 13 counts in the March 2012 death of 25-year-old Britney Meux. The trial lasted eight days.

Cozmanoff was convicted of reckless homicide, three counts of criminal recklessness, eight counts related to failing to stop after an accident and reckless driving. He will be sentenced on Feb. 7.

A trial in June ended in a mistrial when a jury pool member said he had witnessed the accident.
