A 47-year-old Malden man has been found guilty of murdering his longtime girlfriend in 2012.
William Bryant Moseley was convicted by a Middlesex Superior Court jury of first-degree murder, according to a Saturday release from the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office.
Moseley is scheduled to be sentenced by Middlesex Superior Court Judge Kathe Tuttman on May 13.
According to authorities, at about 5:15 a.m. on Aug. 10, 2012, Moseley called police and confessed to just having strangled his girlfriend, 58-year-old Cecelia Yakubu, to death at his 33 Francis St. home.
“This defendant perceived that he was losing control,” Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan said in a statement, “and attacked his girlfriend in a rage, and how now been held accountable for his actions.”
