ANCHORAGE- A man charged with murder in the shooting of his former boss at an Anchorage hotel has been convicted in federal court of being in the country illegally.


The U.S. Attorney's office says 48-year-old Javier Martinez was convicted of making false claims of U.S. citizenship and aggravated identity theft.


Martinez also was convicted of re-entry after deportation and possession of a firearm by an illegal alien.


Martinez in October 2011 was fired from his job as a waiter at the Millennium Inn. State prosecutors say that he returned about a week later on Oct. 29 and shot his former manager, 55-year-old Kerry Fadely, to death with a handgun.


The Dominican Republic native was deported in 1992.


His first-degree murder trial is scheduled for Aug. 26.
