Conn. man convicted of killing homeless couple

Posted: Updated:

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A state jury has convicted a 62-year-old man of murder in the beating deaths of a homeless couple in New Haven a decade ago.

Charlie Levine was found guilty Thursday in New Haven Superior Court of killing 38-year-old Michael Mobley and 37-year-old Louise Soules in an abandoned building in 2004.

The New Haven Register reports that Levine showed no emotion as the verdicts were announced, while the victims' relatives cried quietly.

Witnesses testified that Levine bragged about killing the couple. They say he told them he beat the victims to death after Mobley walked in on him having sex with Soules in the abandoned building and he and Mobley got into a fight.

Levine is set to be sentenced June 20 to up to life in prison.
