Former UMaine football player guilty of murder in Florida

PALM BEACH, Florida — A former University of Maine running back faces life in prison after a Palm Beach County jury convicted him of murder and other charges in the brutal 2014 stabbing death of the man he caught having sex with his ex-girlfriend.

Jurors convicted 26-year-old Zedric Joseph of West Palm Beach in the stabbing death of 23-year-old Richardy Chery after about three hours of deliberations Wednesday in the trial that began last week. The panel convicted Joseph as charged of first degree murder and armed burglary, but returned a conviction on a lesser charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon for the charge of attempted second degree murder in the stabbing of Vashti Laurore, the mother of his daughter.

Circuit Judge John Kastrenakes set a hearing for Friday to determine when to sentence Joseph, who based on the conviction will receive a life sentence.
