A 30-year-old Bal­ti­more man was con­victed of first-de­gree mur­der and four hand­gun crimes in the fa­tal shoot­ing of a man whose body was found four years ago in a wooded area of the Frank­ford neigh­bor­hood. A jury on Thurs­day found Ron­ald Cor­nish guilty of the Nov. 7, 2012, shoot­ing death of War­ren Boone, 26, of Pikesville. Groundskeep­ers found his body at the edge of a park­ing lot of an apart­ment com­plex in the 5100 block of Good­now Road. Boone had a bul­let hole on the side of his neck, au­thor­i­ties said. Cor­nish and Boone had met for a drug trans­ac­tion, ac­cord­ing to the Bal­ti­more state’s at­tor­ney’s of­fice. Cor­nish shot Boone twice and dragged his body into the woods, then stole the vic­tim’s car and bur­glar­ized his home the next day, the of­fice said. Cor­nish then set the car on fire in Bal­ti­more County, ac­cord­ing to the pros­e­cu­tors. In­ves­ti­ga­tors were led to Cor­nish be­cause, un­be­knownst to him, Boone’s cell­phone was in his car, ac­cord­ing to pros­e­cu­tors. Phone records placed the phone was near Cor­nish’s ad­dress af­ter Boone was killed, and later near the vic­tim’s home and then at the site where the car was set afire. Cor­nish will be sen­tenced Nov. 30
