A woman has been convicted following a retrial of fatally stabbing a teenage Riverhead High School classmate 16 years ago.
A Suffolk County jury found Kalila Taylor guilty Monday of second-degree murder.
Taylor, now 35, was convicted of the homicide in 1999, but the conviction was overturned by an appellate court in 2004. The judge in the first case gave jurors faulty instructions regarding DNA evidence.
Prosecutors said Taylor stabbed 17-year-old homecoming queen Curtisha Morning 94 times in 1996.
Taylor was provoked by her belief that the father of her child showed a romantic interest in Morning, authorities said.
She faces up to 25 years to life in prison when she is sentenced Aug. 22 by Judge William Condon.
