Bronx Woman Convicted Of 1st-Degree Murder
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – A Bronx woman faces up to life in prison without the possibility of parole following her first-degree murder conviction.
Maria Rios was convicted of killing Angelica Grullon during a robbery on Feb. 8, 2007.
Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson says Rios knocked on the victim’s apartment door and asked to use the bathroom.
Grullon was there with her 1-year-old son and a friend. Rios robbed them at gunpoint.
Grullon ran into the hallway and was shot during a struggle.
Video surveillance cameras showed Rios fleeing.
Sentencing is set for March 9.
