Steven Armento,accused with "Sopranos" actor Lillo Brancato Jr. of fatally shooting an off-duty police officer during a burglary has been convicted of murder.Steven Armento, 51, faces a possible sentence of life in prison without parole after jurors found him guilty Thursday of first-degree murder while committing a felony in the Dec. 10, 2005, death of Daniel Enchautegui. Sentencing was scheduled for Nov. 14.
Armento and Brancato broke into a basement apartment to steal prescription drugs after a night of drinking at a strip club, according to investigators. Enchautegui, who lived next-door, confronted them after hearing noises in the apartment.Prosecutors said Armento fired at the 28-year-old officer with a .357 Magnum, hitting him once in the heart. The dying officer fired back and wounded both men.A nurse's aide testified during the trial that Armento bragged from his hospital bed that he would be "a king in jail" for killing a police officer.Brancato, 32, who appeared in the 1993 movie "A Bronx Tale" with Robert De Niro as well as "The Sopranos," is scheduled to be tried on second-degree murder charges next month.
