WESTERLY, R.I. (WLNE) — A Connecticut man has been found guilty of murdering a Westerly man over two years ago.

Louis Seignious, 33, of Norwich shot and killed 28-year-old Vincent Sebastian at a home in Westerly on Jan. 25, 2020.

According to Attorney General Peter Neronha, Seignious had found out that Sebastian was “romantically involved” with a woman that he had previously dated and had a child with.

After threatening the victim, Seignious broke into the home on Marriot Avenue, where he shot Sebatian in the chest. Moments later, he died of his injuries.

The jury also found him guilty of carrying a firearm during the commission of a crime of violence, and domestic breaking and entering.

He is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 29.
