Man convicted of first-degree manslaughter and manslaughter in deaths of pregnant woman and her unborn baby
Prosecutors say Vega strangled the 19-year-old Milligan and then doused her apartment with gasoline before setting the fire.
“The jury of six women and six men also convicted Vega of second-degree arson, third-degree arson and first-degree abortion,” according to reporter Kenneth C. Crowe II.
“Vega had been charged with second-degree murder, which carries a maximum sentence of 25 years to life but after days of deliberations the jury opted to convict him of the lesser charge,” Crowe added. However Vega still faces a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison.
