FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - A man is facing a mandatory life sentence after he took the stand and admitted to killing his Fort Lauderdale neighbor’s boyfriend.

The SunSentinel (http://bit.ly/2caulXR ) reports that 60-year-old Victor Ramos was convicted of first-degree murder Wednesday in the June 2013 death of 25-year-old Kenneth Sewell.

Ramos says he shot Sewell multiple times while the victim was sitting on the hood of his own car. He says he fired at Sewell’s girlfriend, April Moscariello, through a closed door, shooting her in the wrist.

Ramos accused Sewell of conducting a five-month campaign of racial harassment that included epithets and repeated interference with his apartment’s power and water. Prosecutors say that the dispute between Ramos and Sewell actually began a short time earlier, with Sewell getting upset with Ramos for leering at Moscariello.
