SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A Springfield man has been convicted of killing a woman during a home invasion robbery in 2010.
The Republican reports (http://bit.ly/1auYoWB) Anthony Moore was found guilty Thursday of first-degree murder, home invasion and other charges. He was acquitted of an assault charge. He faces a mandatory life sentence.
Prosecutors said the 22-year-old Moore shot Margaret Przewozniak (wiz-WOEZ'-nee-ack) in March 2010 after bursting into the apartment she shared with a roommate.
The roommate testified that Przewozniak pulled down a mask the intruder was wearing and recognized him because they had gone to school together. Records show that they attended the same middle school.
Prosecutors also say the victim's blood was found in Moore's van.
Moore's lawyer said witness testimony in the case was unreliable.
