Nearly two years after the tragic passing of R&B singer Usher's stepson Kile Glover, the man responsible has been found guilty on multiple accounts.

According to reports, 40-year-old Georgia resident Jeffrey Hubbard received his conviction Thursday (February 20).

A man has been convicted of homicide by vessel in a Georgia jet ski crash that killed R&B singer Usher's 11-year-old stepson. A Hall County jury on Thursday also found Jeffrey Hubbard guilty of serious injury by vessel, reckless operation of a vessel, unlawful operation of a personal watercraft and a boat traffic violation. The summer 2012 crash on Lake Lanier northeast of Atlanta killed Kile Glover and left another teen severely injured. (Fox News)

Glover is Usher's ex-wife's son from a separate marriage with a high-profile industry executive.

The boy's mother, Tameka Raymond, was married to Usher for two years. They have two children together from their marriage. They divorced in 2009. Kile's father is Ryan Glover, the president of Bounce TV, a fledgling television network targeting African-American audiences. He is also a former executive with Turner Broadcasting, the parent company of CNN. (CNN)

When approached yesterday by paparazzi about the conviction, Usher stayed mum.

Usher was in no mood to celebrate the conviction of the man who killed his stepson when he arrived Thursday at LAX. Usher -- who has been in a nasty, ongoing legal fight with Tameka -- had words of sympathy for her and Kile's biological dad. (TMZ)

Usher and his ex-wife lost their son from the horrific jet ski accident in July 2012.

Kile Glover, stepson of singer Usher Raymond and biological child of ex-wife Tameka Foster Raymond, died Saturday morning (July 21), according to Channel 2 Action News. Kile was taken off of life support Saturday morning and died from heart failure according to a family friend, weeks after the 11-year-old was involved in a tragic Jet Ski accident. Kile was declared brain dead two days after the July 6 accident, and the family struggled with the decision to remove him from life support hoping for a turn in his condition. (MTV)

Sentencing is expected to take place next month.
