 A Barnstable Superior Court jury this morning found Julian Green guilty of second-degree murder in the July 2007 shooting death of 18-year-old Jacques Sellers.

Judge Gary A. Nickerson subsequently sentenced Mr. Green, 22, of Dennis to life in prison, the mandatory sentence for the offense. Mr. Green will be required to serve at least 15 years of his sentence before he becomes eligible for parole.

Judge Nickerson also sentenced Mr. Green to two concurrent terms of three to five years in prison following completion of his prison term for murder.

That sentence stems from a guilty finding on two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, a handgun.

Jacques Sellers was watching television in the living room of 36 General Patton Drive in Hyannis about 11:15 PM July 18, 2007, when police say shots were fired into the house by two gunmen. Jacques Sellers was struck by a bullet and died in the next half hour.

Following the trial, which lasted six days, the jury found that Mr. Green was one of the gunmen and convicted him of murder.
