While attempting to fight off the knife-wielding Marrus during a scuffle that would later take her life, another roommate heard the fight and rushed in to the rescue, according to the report.
It was then that Borgella pulled out a gun and shot Evans in the chest. After fleeing the scene, the Brooklyn man led police on a two-day manhunt before later turning himself in at the 70th Precinct, according to police.
A jury convicted Borgella of second-degree murder, a class A felony, and criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree, a class C felony, on March 12, 2014.
“This defendant killed a woman in cold blood and casually walked away without looking back,” said Kings County District Attorney Kenneth Thompson. “Now that he will be spending the next 15- years or more behind bars, walking away from what he did will not be an option.”
