BOSTON – A man of 18 years of age was convicted in a suburb in Boston on Tuesday for killing and was expelled in a dispute about a girl.
Mathew Borges's jury from Lawrence, Massachusetts was found guilty of first instance murder in the death of Lee Manuel Villoria-Paulino, 16, in 2016, who was found to have been found by a woman walking her dog on the banks of the Merrimack River.
Borges was 15 years old when prosecutors said he killed Villoria-Paulino, who was a colleague at Lawrence Conservatory. He was tried as an adult in the Essex County Supreme Court and will be sentenced on 9 July. He has the biggest life penalty in prison but there may be a parole for 30 years as a minor during crime.
“Nothing can bring Lee Paulino back to his family, who is deeply loved and deeply missed,” said Attorney General Jonathan Jonathan, in a statement. “I hope this verdict gives consolation and peace for them. "

The verdict followed a day of debates and a nine day trial in Salem, Massachusetts, which is 25 miles north-east of Boston.
Prosecutors said Borges was jealous of the time Villoria-Paulino spent a girl in her school.
The victim departed on November 18, 2016. Borges and Villoria-Paulino watched cameras towards the river same day. according to the Boston Globe.
The body was acquired on 1 December of that year. The prosecutors argued that Borges broke the victim to death first and then cut his head and his hands to try to hide his identity.
The Globe said that cell phone specialists, medical examiners and friends of Borges and Villoria-Paulino were giving evidence as witnesses. Borges defense team argued that there was a lack of evidence by the state that connected the crime.
As further evidence, prosecutors highlighted text messages and Facebook from Borris to the girl telling her that she didn't like being friends with others. He told her that he believed that a person's eyes change when they kill someone.
“Look good at my eyes the next time we talk about cuz so you never see the last time ever,” says Borges on 17 November 2016, the Globe reported, the day before Villoria-Paulino left missing . “I know what I do and I can't do anything about it. People will notice that there is a big difference between me and my dead eyes. ”
The Globe reported that Borges showed no sense of how the verdict was read and that his parents were not in the courtroom for the verdict. Borges solicitor Edward Hayden said they wanted to avoid publicity.
