Mass. man convicted of strangling girlfriend

WOBURN — Malden man is awaiting sentencing after a jury convicted him of first-degree murder in the strangling of a girlfriend he lived with.

Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan announced yesterday that a Middlesex Superior Court jury convicted William Bryant Moseley on Friday. A judge has scheduled sentencing for May 13.

Prosecutors say the 47-year-old Moseley called 911 in August 2012 to say he had killed 58-year-old Cecelia Yakubu at their home in Malden.

Prosecutors said Yakubu was found in a small puddle of blood with clothing wrapped around her neck.

Moseley was in jail yesterday and couldn’t be reached for comment.

Ryan said domestic violence is about power and control “and strangulation is a very personal act by an abuser who wants to show they have the power of life and death in their hands. “
