Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe announced Friday that the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court affirmed the first degree murder conviction in 2016 of Steven Webster for the 2012 murder of 28 year old Andrew Stanley in Hyannis.
In July of 2012 Barnstable Police responded to 30 Otis Road in Hyannis for a report of gunshots.
Inside the home they found Stanley bound, beaten and shot in the back.
An extensive investigation linked Webster to the murder. Two other men plead guilty to charges related to the case.
Webster was charged with first degree murder, armed robbery and home invasion. He was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison without parole.
Webster appealed his case challenging the sufficiency of the evidence, the relevance of tire impression evidence that was introduced, the admissibility of certain cell phone evidence and that the trial judge should have instructed the jury on consciousness of guilt.
The State Supreme Court rejected all of Webster’s challenges.
