Boston: A man has been found guilty of raping and killing a neighbour who moved from the Dominican Republic to seek medical care for her 1-year-old son.

Eldrick Broom has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

A jury yesterday convicted Broom of murder and aggravated rape in the Nov 21 death of Rosanna Camilo, the daughter of Dominican radio personality Ruben Camilo.

The 29-year-old Broom and the 34-year-old Camilo lived in an apartment complex in Boston`s Mattapan neighbourhood. Camilo was a married mother of three children.

Prosecutors say Broom entered her apartment, sexually assaulted her and strangled her with a power cord. Her 16-year-old daughter found her body.

Broom`s attorney says he`s disappointed and will appeal the verdict.
