NEW YORK (AP) - A Long Island man already serving 172 years in federal prison for a slew of armed robberies in New Jersey has now been convicted of murder in the 2010 revenge slaying of his girlfriend’s former boyfriend inside a New York City motel.

Prosecutors on Monday said the jury also convicted 52-year-old Max Cagan of South Floral Park of weapons charges in the shooting death of Edwin Quinones.

Prosecutors say Cagan’s girlfriend lured Quinones to the Par Central Motor Inn in Jamaica, and that Cagan shot Quinones in the face in retaliation for assaulting her when they were dating.

Cagan’s attorney couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

Cagan faces up to 25 years to life on the new convictions charges. His sentencing is scheduled for late November.
