A member of the Warlocks motorcycle gang has been convicted of first-degree murder for shooting a gang prospect in a cemetery, tying a rope around his neck, dragging the corpse with a car and dropping the body in a crypt, officials said.

After several hours of deliberation, the jury returned their verdict against Michael DiMauro, 51, in the death of 33-year-old David Rossillo, Jr., last seen alive in December 2017. DiMauro was convicted of all charges, including first-degree murder, conspiracy, abuse of a corpse and related firearm charges, Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner said in a news release.

Investigators believe DiMauro met Rossillo at the historic Mount Moriah Cemetery in southwest Philadelphia. He got into the cemetery with the help of a co-conspirator who served on the cemetery’s nonprofit board, prosecutors said.
