Justice Served: Suspect Found Guilty of First Degree Murder in 2010 Homicide


Justice Served: Almost five years after the shooting death of an 18 year-old man, a Suffolk County jury returned a guilty verdict for First Degree Murder against Darius Gibson, 24, of Boston earlier this week. At about 2:00pm, on May 28, 2010, Gibson shot and killed 18 year-old Terrence Kelley on Creston Street in Roxbury. After today’s verdict, Gibson – who will be sentenced next week - now faces a mandatory life term without the possibility of parole. Although charged for First Degree Murder in 2012, the guilty verdict wasn’t reached until this past week. Said District Attorney Dan Conley: “Cases like this one prove that we will never, ever give up on solving a homicide. When police and prosecutors were met by silence and lies, they continued to dig until they built a case that would support an indictment, a conviction, and a verdict that will be upheld on appeal. Boston Police investigators and Suffolk prosecutors are the very best in this business.”
