Conviction In New Haven Arson Triple Killing

New Haven Federal Court jurors today convicted a man on three counts of arson resulting in a death.

Hector “Boom Boom” Natal was convicted of setting a New Haven fire in an apartment building, killing three people.

The prosecution claimed the fire was started because a drug debt had gone unpaid by someone in the building.

But the defense argued that the accusations were based on witnesses who should not be trusted.

The verdict came on the second day of deliberations.

The three people killed were 8-year-old Quayshawn Roberson, the boy’s mother Wanda, and the woman’s 21-year-old Niece Jaquetta.

Natal’s father, Hector Morales, was convicted of taking part in Natal’s illegal drug dealing.
