BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - After just over three hours of deliberations a jury convicted 36-year-old Rayshaun Moore of the murder of 25-year-old Demetrius Snow.

Snow died as a result of stab wounds after an altercation outside a Bangor night club in February of last year.

Moore’s lawyers tried to argue police arrested the wrong guy and pointed to a third person’s DNA on the knife used in the deadly stabbing.

Assistant Attorney General Lisa Bogue says she and her team continued to point jurors to video surveillance and common sense throughout the trial.

“I’m just glad they were able to focus on what we believed to be the real evidence and again not the distractions that were suggested. Obviously the video was a big piece of evidence and so they did request to see that a couple times. That’s where this investigation started and that’s where this case finished and we’re very happy,” said Bogue.

“Were disappointed by the verdict that the jury reached. We believed we had presented more than enough for the jury to at least question the state’s case and find Mr. Moore not guilty,” said Moore’s attorney Hunter Tzovarras.

The family of Demetrius Snow released a statement, saying in part, “We are so happy that we have justice for him and we can move on from this and heal as a family.”

Due to the pandemic the family was in a separate room throughout the trial watching via video.

Bogue says she is looking forward to getting back to cases everyone can see in person, but she is comfortable with the changes.

“Went fairly smoothly, there were some technical difficulties but I think we were prepared for this type of trial so we were ready to go forward,” said Bogue.

A sentencing date has not been set, but Moore faces 25 years to life in prison.
