NYC club bouncer guilty in Boston student’s death
NEW YORK — A Manhattan nightclub bouncer has been convicted of first-degree murder in the slaying of a graduate student from Boston.
Darryl Littlejohn looked straight ahead as the jury verdict was read Wednesday.
The 44-year-old parolee faces up to life in prison in the 2006 death of criminal justice student Imette St. Guillen (ih-MET’ saynt GEE’-yen) of Boston. His sentencing is set for July 8.
Littlejohn is already serving 25 years to life for kidnapping another woman.
The defense said Littlejohn was framed in the St. Guillen case, which stirred memories of New York’s notorious “preppie killer” slaying and spurred a city crackdown on nightlife security.
