(KMOV) -- A St. Louis County man has been found guilty for the murder of a man, dumping his body in a dumpster and then burning the body in Madison, Ill.

Ernest Smith, 41, was found guilty of second-degree murder in the death of Christopher Scott in February of 2011. 

Smith was upset about Scott allegedly stealing something from his girlfriend.  An argument ensued and that is when Smith shot and killed Scott.

The body was later found near Kohl and Race in Madison, Ill.

His sentencing has not been set.
