New Haven Man Faces 150 Year Sentence in Ambush Killing of Two

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ A New Haven man has been convicted of killing of two men after ambushing them and firing 22 shots.

A Superior Court jury returned the verdict against 25-year-old Brandon Bellamy on Friday in the deaths of William Burruss and Justin Davis. Bellamy faces a maximum 150 years in prison.

Prosecutors said Bellamy had been bested by Burruss in a fight on the night of the April 2008 killings. They said Bellamy was waiting for Burruss when he got home later with two friends and opened fire, killing Burruss andDavis in what the prosecution characterized as an execution.

One of Burruss’s friends escaped.

The defense had argued that a crucial witness against Bellamy initially told police she didn’t see the shooter, and then didn’t come forward to police until nearly two years later.
