Navila Nunez and her mother were in their Mattapan apartment one August day when there was a knock at their door. It was their neighbor from across the hall, Eldrick Broom, who had noticed their keys still in the lock. Nunez’s mother had accidentally left them outside.
A few months later, Broom broke into the women’s two-bedroom apartment, according to police, then raped and killed Nunez’s mother, 34-year-old Rosanna Camilo De Nunez. According to Suffolk prosecutors, sometime in the early afternoon of Nov. 21, 2011, Broom strangled Camilo with a computer cord and a sock and left her nearly naked body on the floor.
Navila Nunez, who was a 16-year-old high school junior at the time, found her mother later that day when she got home from West Roxbury Academy.
Now 18, Nunez was poised on the stand during the first day of Broom’s murder trial.

Starting Wednesday, drivers hunting for parking spaces around parts of Boston’s Innovation District will be able to use a smartphone app to locate the nearest spot.
The city announced it has completed a project to install 330 “Smart Parking Sensors” below curbside spots along Seaport Boulevard, Congress and Summer streets, and Boston Wharf Road.
Parker — a free mobile app developed by the company that sells the sensors, California-based Streetline Inc. – works in tandem with the sensors to show drivers which parking spaces are open, city officials said.
The app is available for iPhone and Android phone users.
The city said it will also unveil newly installed “Time to Destination Signs” in the Innovation District Wednesday.

In recent years, the City of Boston has taken laudable steps to curb exposure to secondhand smoke, banning smoking in outdoor workplaces and public housing projects. But it’s harder to defend a broad new effort to ban smoking in all city parks. Smokers need to be aware of the dangers of secondhand smoke, and sensitive to people downwind of them. Many already are. Public health campaigns and the old-fashioned evil eye could be useful weapons in the cause. Indeed, in the years since the Stanford study was released — in part, because of successful cessation programs from the city and state — smoking rates in Boston have declined. It’s great to encourage safe behavior. It’s less effective to legislate it.
