BOSTON (AP) — A Boston man has been found guilty of raping and killing a neighbor who moved from the Dominican Republic to seek medical care for her 1-year-old son.
Eldrick Broom has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
A Suffolk Superior Court jury on Friday convicted Broom of murder and aggravated rape in the Nov. 21 death of Rosanna Camilo, the daughter of Dominican radio personality Ruben Camilo.
The 29-year-old Broom and the 34-year-old Camilo lived in an apartment complex in Boston's Mattapan neighborhood. Camilo was a married mother of three children.
Prosecutors say Broom entered her apartment, sexually assaulted her and strangled her with a power cord. Her 16-year-old daughter found her body.
Broom's attorney says he's disappointed and will appeal the verdict.
