Starkey was found guilty of first-degree murder last Thursday shooting and killing his girlfriend, 47-year-old Amanda Glover, and trying to kill her 27-year-old son, Devin. The jury deliberated for about three hours before finding him guilty.

He is said to have shot Glover at their Wendell home after she told him she was ending their relationship. Starkey also allegedly drove to Chicopee and shot at a co-worker.

Starkey was the subject of a five-day manhunt before he was arrested.
