WOBURN, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts man has been convicted of murder for a second time in the 2009 shooting of his co-worker during a workplace dispute.

Clyde Howard was found guilty Thursday in the killing of 33-year-old Maurice Ricketts. The men worked at the Bay State Pool Supply Co. in Cambridge and had a personal dispute.

Howard was a custodian at the company and Ricketts was a machine operator.

Howard was first convicted in the killing in 2011, but the state’s highest court overturned the conviction in 2014 after finding that some statements he made to police should not have been admissible. Howard was convicted a second time after a retrial.

A judge sentenced him to the mandatory sentence for first-degree murder, life in prison without the possibility of parole.
