Central Islip man convicted in teen's death

Central Islip man convicted in teen's death: "Lavelle Todd, 21, was acquitted of second-degree murder in the Memorial Day 2008 death of Robert Adams Jr. of Central Islip.
He could be sentenced to a maximum of 75 years in prison if County Court Judge Martin Efman rules that sentences for manslaughter and assault may run consecutively, Assistant District Attorney Robert Biancavilla said. Sentencing was scheduled for Jan. 18.
The jury of seven men and five women reached its verdict shortly before 5 p.m. after deliberating about 23 hours over four days.
In Todd's first trial, a different jury could not agree on whether he had acted in self-defense, leading Efman to declare a mistrial in May.
Thursday's verdict stunned Adams' mother and sister."
