TAUNTON, Mass. (WPRI) -- A Freetown man has been sentenced to life in prison for strangling another man to death.
A jury convicted Aaron Morin, 29, of first-degree murder after 31-year-old Chad Fleming was beaten and strangled in Taunton.
He was given a life sentence with no possibility of parole.
Fleming, who was from Florida, was found dead on Bay Street in November of 2009.
Last month, a co-conspirator, Nelson Melo, 35, was also convicted on murder charges and sentenced to life in prison.
