BOSTON (AP) - Two brothers have been convicted of murder in the stabbing death of a 23-year-old man during a brawl outside a Boston hotel two years ago.

Prosecutors say 28-year-old Harold Coleman and 24-year-old Shawn Coleman were convicted Monday of second-degree murder and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon charges in Suffolk Superior Court.

The victim, Christopher Borgella, and the Colemans were at a party at the DoubleTree Hotel in Dorchester on March 1, 2014 when a fight between two groups broke out.

After the fight spilled into the parking lot, Borgella was stabbed and two other men were injured.

The brothers face life in prison at sentencing scheduled for May 24.
