PORTLAND, Maine — A local man has been convicted of shooting his roommate to death.
A jury on Thursday found 25-year-old Daudoit Butsitsi guilty in the February 2010 death of Serge Mulongo.
Butsitsi had said he acted in self-defense.
He testified this week that another man jumped on his back and that he — Butsitsi — saw a gun in Mulongo’s hand, so he shot him.
Mulongo was shot six times in what prosecutors say was a revenge killing.
Prosecutors also said the gun used to kill Mulongo was the same one an intruder used to shoot 25-year-old Darien Richardson in her Portland apartment in January 2010.
