The mother of Billy Mason says "justice has finally come through for us".
Donna Dixon has reacted outside of Hamilton's John Sopinka Courthouse after a jury found Jeremy Hall guilty of first degree murder in the killing of her son in 2006.
The prosecution's case relied heavily on the testimony of Jason Lusted who was previously convicted as an accessory to murder, and who told the court he was there when Hall kidnapped and shot Mason, and then burned his remains.
Dixon says the verdict "has been a long time coming".
She adds that while it can't bring Billy back, justice has been served.
The first degree murder conviction carries an automatic sentence of life in prison with no parole eligibility for 25 years.
