DC man convicted for murdering mom's boyfriend

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (WUSA9) -- A Washington D.C. man has been convicted for killing his mother's boyfriend earlier this year.

On Friday, 33-year-old D'Juan Hunter was convicted of second-degree murder for the death of Raymond Quattlebaum. Hunter was also convicted of use of a handgun in the commission of a crime of violence.

"Mr. Hunter killed Mr. Quattlebaum because he didn't like him and he was angry at him," Prince George's County State's Attorney Angela Alsobrooks said in a written statement.

Hunter's mother had asked him to pick up his belongings from her home in Clinton because she had told him he needed to leave the house if he could not be respectful towards Quattlebaum. When Hunter came to the house on January 1, he went upstairs to his room and retrieved a gun, according to Alsobrooks. Hunter then walked into the room where Quattlebaum was sleeping and shot him multiple times. Alsobrooks says Hunter fled before police arrived at the scene.

He was later arrested and his family members identified him as the shooter, says Alsobrooks.

Hunter faces a maximum of 50 years in prison at his sentencing hearing, which is set for November 5.
