Jury gets pizza delivery killing case
Sep. 22, 2014
BOSTON (AP) — The defense attorney for one of two men on trial in the 2010 killing of a Boston pizza delivery driver has told the jury his client did kill the victim, but should be convicted only of second-degree murder because it wasn't planned.
The Boston Globe reports (http://bit.ly/ZDDst1) attorney William White said in his closing argument Monday that Alexander Gallett was only looking for a free meal.
Gallett and Michel St. Jean are charged with first-degree murder.
St. Jean's attorney, Eduardo Masferrer, said there's no evidence linking his client to the killing of 58-year-old Richel Nova.
Prosecutor Jennifer Hickman said Nova was lured to a vacant house where the men attacked, robbed and killed him. Hickman said Nova fought his attackers and it took both defendants to stab him to death.
The jury continues deliberating Tuesday.
