ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - Two men have been convicted of beating and stabbing a 17-year-old boy to death on a Rochester street last year.

A Monroe County jury Tuesday found 20-year-old Vincent Bean guilty of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the June 20 death of Travone Teasley.

Jurors also found Bean and 28-year-old co-defendant Ronald Nelson guilty of gang assault.

Prosecutors say Bean, Nelson and Deiondre Francis chased Teasley down and beat him before Bean stabbed him to death. Francis pleaded guilty earlier.

Assistant District Attorney Patrick Gallagher says Teasley was an innocent victim who was murdered in his own neighborhood.
