Kingston man convicted of murder

Posted: Updated:

BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) - A Kingston man who fatally shot one person and paralyzed another in a dispute over beer has been convicted of first-degree murder.

Richard Boucher (boo-SHAY') Jr. was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday following his conviction for the May 2010 shootings at a party in Plymouth.

Prosecutors say Boucher was 18 when he went to the party and took beer belonging to James Tigges of Abington and Jackson Duncan of Plymouth. He shot them as they left the party, killing the 24-year-old Tigges and paralyzing the then-18-year-old Duncan below the chest.

Boucher fled and was caught two weeks later in Oxford.

The Enterprise ( reports that the defense portrayed Boucher as a drunken teen at a party where most everyone was drinking heavily.
