San Benito man convicted in 2012 fatal stabbing

BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) - A South Texas man has been convicted of a 2012 slaying in which the victim was stabbed more than a dozen times after the alleged theft of a car radio.

Jurors in Brownsville on Tuesday consider the penalty for 19-year-old Robert John Anthony Martinez of San Benito. Martinez faces up to 99 years in prison.

The Cameron County jury on Monday convicted Martinez in last November's killing of 19-year-old Angel Perez.

Prosecutors say Martinez chased and attacked Perez because he suspected the victim and some friends burglarized a vehicle and stole a radio.
