WILLIAMSPORT — A jury in Lycoming County has found man guilty of murder.

Raymarr Alford was found guilty of first degree murder and guilty of conspiracy to commit murder.

He was found not guilty on two counts of aggravated assault.

Alford is accused of shooting and killing Kevan Connelley on a basketball court at Flanigan Park in Williamsport in front of about 200 people in July 2012.

Prosecutors say Alford and Qu Mar Moore fled to Philadelphia after the shooting and were found about two months later.

During closing arguments, defense attorney Don Martino said there was not enough evidence to convict Alford, and that the prosecution’s witnesses were unreliable.

Prosecutors said that is simply untrue and all of the witnesses had the same story. The Lycoming County district attorney played a phone call from a witness describing the shooting and blaming Raymarr Alford for the death of Kevan Connelley.

Qu Mar Moore is expected to go on trial for the same charges, but that date has not yet been set.
