Marcus Asante, of Fitchburg, Massachusetts, was convicted in November of the murder and robbery of an Oakfield man on Oct. 16, 2016. A second man, Darin Goulding, of Leominster (LEMON-STIR), Massachusetts, pleaded guilty to robbery and testified against Asante.
Officials say the two, who are due to be sentenced on Wednesday, were among three people who traveled from Massachusetts for a drug deal. The third defendant, Tia Leigh Ludwick, is already serving a 17-year prison sentence for robbery and murder.
The body of 31-year-old Douglas Morin Jr. was found in his vehicle in Sherman. Prosecutors say it was Asante who shot the victim nine times.
