MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A jury convicted a Memphis man of the murder of a 21-year-old mother.

Jurors agreed Fred Beal killed Amelia Campbell during a botched robbery attempt on July 19, 2011. The shooting happened in the Hyde Park area of North Memphis.

At the time of the murder, Beal was 16 years old.

Investigators said he and another man shot the young mother in front of her 4-year-old son.

"I miss my momma," Campbell's son said in 2011. "I miss her."

Police arrested two other men in connection to the robbery and murder. Both are scheduled to be in court Monday.
