Man found guilty of fatally stabbing relative's ex-boyfriend

A man accused of stabbing his aunt's ex-boyfriend to death in Baltimore last year was found guilty by a jury Monday, the Baltimore Office of the State's Attorney said Tuesday.

Jeremiah McBride, 25, was convicted of second-degree murder in the fatal stabbing of Thomas Rawlings, 24. According to the state's attorney, McBride's aunt had broken off a relationship with Rawlings but continued to let him temporarily live in her home in the 1800 block of Fulton Avenue.

"When the aunt told McBride about some of the difficulties that she and the victim were having, McBride became outraged, grabbed a knife, and stabbed the victim, who had just come in the house," the Office of the State's Attorney said in a statement.

Police found Rawlings face up in a pool of blood in the living room Dec. 7, and McBride, who had cuts on his hands, told police he did not know what happened and did not remember the incident. McBride is scheduled to be sentenced in November and faces a sentence of up to 30 years in prison.
