TULSA, Oklahoma -

The family of a Tulsa man who was murdered last July said they're relieved the killer has been convicted. 

A federal jury found Kyle Sago guilty of first-degree murder in the death of Daniel Morgan.

Morgan's sister, Betty Ennis, said it was a long three days at court, but her family was so thankful when they heard a guilty verdict. 

"We were all holding hands, we all felt my brother almost hug us, because there were a bunch of us there," she said. 

Sago showed up to Morgan's house last July and demanded to speak with him. He shot Morgan to death when he walked outside.

Ennis said it's been such a hard year without Morgan.

"It kind of feels strange today, but I think we all woke up with being able to breathe and this weight lifted off of all of us," Ennis said.

Prosecutors said Sago and Morgan used to be friends and saw each other earlier that day. Ennis said they still don't know why this happened. 

"It's something I'll never find out because he will never say, but what we've gathered is that it was just senseless," Ennis said. 

Ennis said it's heartbreaking Morgan’s five children will have to grow up without their dad. 

"We're happy with everything, but it won’t ever bring Daniel back and we will always have that hurt for him," Morgan said.
