BANGOR — After six days of testimony, plus a few hours of discussion Monday afternoon, the jury wasted no time reaching a verdict in the Rayshaun Moore murder trial Tuesday morning.
One by one the jurors said guilty when asked by Judge William Anderson how they voted on the murder charge of Rayshaun Moore.
“We’re obviously very happy with the verdict. I think we believed in this case from the beginning and we just weren’t distracted by some of the suggested distractions by the defense. So we’re very pleased with the result,” said Maine Assistant Attorney General Lisa Bogue, who prosecuted the case.
The jurors convicted the 36-year-old Moore of murder in connection with the February 2020 stabbing death of 25-year-old Demetrius Snow. The stabbing happened in the parking lot of Half Acre Nightclub on Harlow Street in Bangor.
After the verdict was announced, the Snow family issued a statement that said, “We are so happy that we have justice for him and we can move on from this and heal as a family.”
In his opening statement, Moore’s defense attorney Hunter Tzovarras said he would prove another man stabbed and killed Snow.
The jury rejected the suggestion someone else was responsible. Attempts to reach Tzvoarras for comment following the verdict were unsuccessful.
A sentencing date has not been scheduled. Moore will be sentenced by Anderson sometime in the coming weeks or months.
