FARMINGTON, N.H. (AP) - A man accused of stabbing another man during a robbery in New Hampshire and leaving him to die has been convicted of second-degree murder.

Christopher Gay was charged in connection with the January 2012 death of 22-year-old Ryan Stewart in Farmington.

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1tZHyJM) Gay was found not guilty of first-degree murder on Monday.

Prosecutors said that Gay and another man, Corey Bennett, went into Stewart’s home and assaulted him before Gay stabbed him. Gay’s lawyers argued that Bennett was the one who killed Stewart.

Bennett pleaded guilty earlier this year to second-degree murder and conspiracy to commit robbery and agreed to testify against Gay at trial.
