Gang member convicted of killing Mass. officer

Robert Iacoviello found guilty in shooting of Officer Daniel Talbot

Boston Globe

REVERE, Mass. — The man accused of killing Revere Police Officer Daniel Talbot in 2007 was convicted of second-degree murder today by a Suffolk Superior Court jury, in a case that continues to cast a shadow over the city's police department.

The verdict against Robert Iacoviello, now 22, was detailed before a courtroom packed with police officers, Talbot's family and friends, and relatives of the defendant. Members of both families wept when the verdict was announced and declined comment as they left the courtroom.

Iacoviello, a diminutive, dark-haired man who prosecutors said was a member of the Bloods gang, shot Talbot above his right eye in the early morning hours of Sept. 29, 2007, believing he was a gang rival, law enforcement officials said. Iacoviello's co-defendant, James Heang, was convicted of being an accessory after the fact for helping to dismantle the handgun used to shoot Talbot. It was not clear if any relatives of Heang's were in the courtroom today.
