Parolee Convicted Of Killing Boston Store Clerk

A Massachusetts jury has found a 65-year-old man guilty of gunning down a Boston convenience store clerk while he was out on parole for killing another clerk during a separate armed store robbery four decades ago.

Edward Corliss was found guilty of first-degree murder, armed robbery while masked and unlawful possession of a firearm. He faces a mandatory life in prison without parole at sentencing scheduled for Thursday.

Prosecutors say Corliss fatally shot Surendra Dangol in the chest during a robbery at the store in Boston's Jamaica Plain neighborhood on Dec. 26, 2009.

The 39-year-old Dangol was a Somerville resident and citizen of Nepal, and was saving money to bring his wife and daughter to the United States.

Corliss was paroled in 2006 after the 1971 slaying of a Salisbury store clerk.
