The jury returned a guilty verdict in the murder of former FBI agent Bianca Bree, who was shot dead in her California home.
Bree was killed after allegedly stealing her laptop computer from her home in April, 2016.
Bree, 28, was shot multiple times and died at the scene.
Bree allegedly used a .22 caliber rifle to kill the agent in a home that she shared with her boyfriend.
The jury deliberated for more than six hours before returning a verdict of not guilty on the murder charge.
Bree’s murder was one of the first known killings by an undercover FBI agent.
The former agent’s body was found in her bedroom at the end of the year, after a series of burglaries that investigators said she had committed.
She was a 28-year-old computer security analyst who worked for the FBI’s San Francisco office.
The shooting of Bree shocked the city of San Francisco, which had seen an increase in crime, including murders, aggravated assaults, robberies and drug deals.
Bree had worked in the San Francisco Bay Area for a year and was a member of the FBI Cyber Crime Task Force, which investigated cyber threats against law enforcement and federal agencies.
She had previously worked at a major California law enforcement agency.
Bree left behind two young children, ages 6 and 5.
The murder of a former FBI cyber investigator shocked San Francisco.
It was one more case of an agent’s death that was caught on tape.
A federal jury convicted former FBI computer security agent Biancana Bree, the daughter of former agent Brian Bree, on Thursday in the death of her former FBI boss, the San Jose Mercury News reported.
“It’s one of those cases where you’re just shocked,” San Jose District Attorney Jeff Rosen said at the time.
“You see what she did and you think, wow, this is going to have a devastating effect on the entire city.”
San Jose was rocked when the former agent was found dead in April.
Prosecutors said she and her boyfriend, a former partner of her husband, were robbed at gunpoint while they were at work.
They were later found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in a vacant home.
Prosecutors alleged that the two women had been lured to the vacant home by a woman who said she worked for an undercover agent and had her boyfriend in tow.
Prosecutors also alleged that Bree and her girlfriend were forced to participate in a sex game.
Prosecutors say that the woman also had the two FBI agents strip off in front of other women and force them to perform oral sex.
A surveillance camera captured Bree’s car in the parking lot of the home.
In a Facebook post, the former FBI operative’s husband, Brian Bree’s former partner, said that he is “heartbroken” by the news of his wife’s death.
“I’m heartbroken for her family,” he said.
“She loved her family and wanted to help them.”
Bri’s murder remains under investigation by the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office.
