A 22-year-old man was convicted of second-degree murder Tuesday in the fatal stabbing of Kenneth Soto in 2011 on a Jamaica Plain street, and his friend was found guilty of being an accessory, Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley said. Evidence showed that Hector “Nemo” Soto of Roslindale stabbed Kenneth Soto several times following an altercation outside a 7-Eleven store on Centre Street and then laughed as he fled the scene with Christian Rivera, 24, of Mission Hill, said Jake Wark, a spokesman for Conley. Soto faces life in prison with the possibility of parole, and Rivera faces a maximum of seven years as an accessory to murder after the fact, Wark said. The two Sotos were not related.
