NEW MILFORD, Conn. (AP) - A Hartford man has been convicted of aiding his brother in the murder of a man who was shot and killed in a charter school parking lot.

The Hartford Courant reports (https://cour.at/1fjoals ) a Superior Court jury Monday found 39-year-old Quan Soyini guilty of conspiracy to commit murder and being an accessory to murder.

Soyini’s brother, 36-year-old Kunta Soyini, is already serving a 35-year-prison term for the shooting death of 25-year-old Chimar Gordon.

Prosecutor John Fahey says Quan Soyini helped his brother hunt down Gordon on the day of the murder. He says Gordon had robbed Quan Soyini a month earlier.

Defense attorney William Gerace argued that his client played no role in the killing.

Quan Soyini faces up to 80 years in prison when he’s sentenced in September.
