BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) - A 20-year-old Wareham man has been found guilty of fatally stabbing a Bridgewater man and severely injuring the man’s brother after arguing with people at a party in 2012.

Bryan Grassie was convicted Monday of second-degree murder in the death of 18-year-old Brendan Mahoney. Grassie also was convicted of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon in the stabbing of Brian Mahoney.

Prosecutors said Grassie argued and was confrontational with several people at a July graduation party in Wareham after showing up uninvited. They said he stabbed the Mahoney brothers a total of 12 times.

Grassie had claimed the Mahoneys were the aggressors. Prosecutors said the Mahoneys were not armed.

On the murder conviction, Grassie was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole. He was sentenced to a concurrent six-to-10 years on the assault conviction.
