Separate Suffolk murder convictions upheld by state’s high court


Two separate Suffolk County murder convictions have been upheld by the Supreme Judicial Court, District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office said. On Oct. 15, the high court affirmed the first-degree murder conviction of Joseph P. Lennon, 54, for the 2006 stabbing of a 42-year-old homeless man near Faneuil Hall, Conley’s office said. In an unrelated case Monday, the court also affirmed the first-degree murder conviction of Darryl Scott, 31, for shooting and killing a teenager outside a downtown Boston movie theater in 2003, the statement said.
