Boston - A man has been found guilty of raping and killing a neighbor who moved from the Dominican Republic to seek medical care for her 1-year-old son.

Eldrick Broom has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

A jury on Friday convicted Broom of murder and aggravated rape in the Nov. 21 death of Rosanna Camilo, the daughter of Dominican radio personality Ruben Camilo.

The 29-year-old Broom and the 34-year-old Camilo lived in an apartment complex in Boston's Mattapan neighborhood. Camilo was a married mother of three children.

Prosecutors say Broom entered her apartment, sexually assaulted her and strangled her with a power cord. Her 16-year-old daughter found her body.

Broom's attorney says he's disappointed and will appeal the verdict.
