Dorchester man convicted in Cambridge slaying
By Globe Staff
A Dorchester man has been convicted of participating in the March 2006 slaying of a man who was shot in his car on Hamilton Street in Cambridge, prosecutors said.
Ahmad Bright, 19, was found guilty today of second-degree murder, assault with a dangerous weapon, and carrying a firearm without a license, the Middlesex district attorney's office announced. Bright's sentencing is slated for Wednesday.
Bright allegedly participated in the killing of Corey Davis, 19, of Boston at about midnight on March 19, 2006. Davis was found a short distance from the car with gunshot wounds in his back.
"This defendant conspired with others to carry out what amounted to be an execution of this victim," said Middlesex District Attorney Gerard Leone. "The jury thankfully rejected the defendant's position that Corey Davis was somehow not a priority and somehow not worthy of a verdict on his behalf."
Remel Ahart, 24, of Cambridge, allegedly shot Davis. Sherrod Bright, 24, of Boston, Ahmad Bright's older brother, allegedly ordered Ahmad Bright and Ahart to kill Davis because of a dispute over money.
Both Sherrod Bright and Ahart have also been charged in the case and are being held without bail. Ahart's trial is set for May 18.
