The man who was riding the jet ski which collided with and killed Usher’s former stepson in 2012 has been convicted on a string of charges, including homicide by vessel.

Kile Glover, whose mother is Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Raymond, was sitting on an inflatable raft on Lake Lanier in Georgia on July 6, 2012 when Jeffrey Hubbard lost control of the waterborne craft and collided with the 11-year-old.

The child, who was vacationing with his dad Ryan Glover, was left brain dead and never regained consciousness. He died on July 21, 2012.

Hubbard was subsequently charged with homicide with a vessel, reckless operation of a vessel, unlawful operation of a personal watercraft, boat traffic violation, and serious injury by vessel.

He pleaded not guilty and the case went to jury trial last week.

Closing arguments were delivered in Hall County Superior Court on Thursday morning and he was convicted on all five
counts just hours later.

Hubbard was taken into custody ahead of sentencing on March 5.
