Circuit Judge Ray Grubbs convicted Crook of killing 36-year-old Michael Durham last March.
Durham was shot 5 times and his body was dumped on an isolated road just outside Blacksburg.
In court, Crook admitted shooting Durham while the two were riding down the road.
Crook said he fired the gun because he thought Durham had grabbed a gun from inside his boot, but two other men in the car that night testified they never saw the victim with a weapon.
Crook will be sentenced in March.
