Friday, August 11, 2017

 

A man pleaded guilty and to the 2008 stabbing death of a Westboro man on Thursday in Worcester County District Court.

According to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early Jr., Janleer Povez was sentenced to 18 years in state prison for pleading gilded to the 2008 stabbing of Jack McGuire of Westboro.

McGuire died after being stabbed in the thigh on April 21, 2008 by Povez during an attempted drug robbery on Florence Street in Worcester.

Povez also pleaded guilty to charges arising from his conduct in two trials for the death of McGuire, including witness intimidation, threatening, assault and battery on a public employee, assault and battery on a person over 60 and disruption of court proceedings.

Judge Shannon Frison sentenced Povez to 3-5 years in prison on the charges from the two trials.

That sentence is to be served at the same time as the sentence she imposed for the manslaughter plea.

Assistant District Attorneys John H. Melander Jr. and Donna Marie Haran had recommended that the 3-5 years be served after the 18-year sentence.
