East Meadow Man Convicted of Murder
An East Meadow man has been convicted of fatally shooting a 46-year-old stranger in the stomach with a shotgun on a Hempstead street last year.
A Nassau County jury found Herber Guzman guilty of second-degree murder and criminal possession of a controlled substance.
Prosecutors said the 42-year-old was in his white Kia Sportage on Marvin Street when he fired a shotgun into the abdomen of Stanley Cater at 4:30 a.m. on April 26, 2012.
Guzman was apprehended six days later when he was pulled over during a traffic stop during which authorities said they found a small bag of crack cocaine in the vehicle.
He faces up to 25 years to life in prison when he is sentenced Nov. 22.
