A New Hampshire man who used two knives, one in each hand, to fatally stabbing his girlfriend to death in Massachusetts was convicted of killing her.

A jury recently found Carlos Asencio, 32, guilty of the first-degree murder of Amanda Dabrowski, 31, reported.

During Asencio’s eight-day trial, prosecutors said the defendant stalked Dabrowski for months before fatally attacking her on July 3, 2019, inside O’Connor’s Restaurant & Bar in Worcester.

Asencio and Dabrowski met while the pair were both working at Bristol Myers Squibb. They began a relationship in December 2018, but Dabrowski ended it around three months later.

Prosecutors said Asencio then began to stalk Dabrowski after he lost his job at the pharmaceutical company and believed it was the victim’s fault. Asencio, who became homeless, was accused of tracking Dabrowski’s movements with a phone secured to her car as well as attacking Dabrowski with a stun gun after he broke into her home following their breakup.

Around 8 o’clock the evening of the murder, Asencio located and approached Dabrowski at O’Connor’s Restaurant & Bar, a knife in each hand. He then, prosecutors said, stabbed her nearly 60 times.

Asencio was arrested at the scene after patrons subdued him.

Dabrowski was later pronounced dead from her injuries.

In addition to the murder count, Asencio was also found guilty of of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon in connection with a restaurant patron who suffered injuries after attempting to subdue the defendant.

Asencio faces life in prison without parole when he is sentenced later this month.

“While no verdict will ever bring Amanda back, we are relieved that a jury found this man responsible for taking her from us,” Dabrowksi’s family said in a statement. “We know he can never harm another person again. The jury helped us find some justice today, though we know there are no real winners.”
