A jury Wednesday found a Carol Stream man guilty of murdering his mother three years ago after she failed to buy him tickets to an Avril Lavigne concert.

Robert Lyons was convicted of stabbing 61-year-old Linda Boleck to death in the condo they shared.

Prosecutors say Lyons had a lot of pent up anger against his mother, but her failure to get the concert tickets set him off.

Lyons will be sentenced in November.
