NEW YORK (AP) - A drifter from Boston is facing prison for strangling a disabled New York City man who had given him a place to stay.

Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown announced Thursday that Raymond Epps has been convicted of murder and robbery in the October 2011 death of 62-year-old Wayne Graves.

The prosecutor says Epps responded to Graves’ act of kindness by killing him and stealing his credit cards.

Graves, who needed a walker to get around, was found dead in his bathtub.

Epps used the victim’s credit cards to buy a bus ticket back to Boston, and merchandise that he traded for drugs.

The prosecutor says Epps faces up to 25 years to life in prison when he’s sentenced on March 4.
