(CBS) MIAMI -- A jury on Wednesday convicted a Florida man in the fatal stabbing of a football player during an altercation on Florida International University's campus in 2010, reports CBS Miami.

Quentin Wyche, 25, was found guilty of second-degree murder with a deadly weapon after jurors deliberated for an hour, the station reports.

Prosecutors said he stabbed running back Kendall Berry to death with a pair of scissors during the March 2010 altercation. Wyche argued the stabbing was in self-defense after Berry picked a fight with him outside the school's recreation center.

The six-member jury was selected Monday, and testimony in the case lasted two days, reports the station. 

Wyche's mother reportedly hummed a hymn as her son was taken into custody.
