A Roxbury man was found guilty of first-degree murder on Tuesday in the killing of a Milton man three years ago.

On April 14, 2013, Nathaniel Brown, 32, chased Jordan Baskin, 22, into his Milton home before stabbing him 11 times, prosecutors said.

Baskin’s father was home and heard the commotion, Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey’s office said in a statement.

“When he went downstairs to investigate, he found his dying son and spoke with him before he was overcome by his injuries,” the statement said.

Police arrested Brown, who is also known as “Nasty,” in September 2013.

Investigators “spent five months piecing together fingerprint, forensic, and other evidence before Brown was indicted,” Morrissey said in the statement. “We are pleased and relieved that the jury got it, and got it right — particularly for Jordan’s family, who have endured so much.”

During the trial, the jury heard audio from a device that was in the kitchen at the time of Baskin’s death, according to prosecutors.

Brown’s sentencing is scheduled for Wednesday at 9 a.m.

First-degree murder convictions in Massachusetts carry a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole.
