WOBURN -- A 51-year-old Burlington man has been convicted of being drunk at more than three times the legal limit when he hit and killed a pedestrian in Burlington during the summer of 2012.
After a six-day trial, a Middlesex Superior Court jury on Monday convicted Anthony Manfredi, of 16 Frothingham Road, of motor-vehicle homicide and operating under the influence, second offense. His first drunken-driving conviction was in New Hampshire in 2008.
Manfredi, whose bail was revoked, is scheduled to be sentenced March 28.
Prosecutors said that on Aug. 14, 2012, Manfredi, a former Dracut resident, was behind the wheel with a blood-alcohol level of .26 -- more than three times the legal limit of .08 -- when he hit and killed a pedestrian, Daniel Jalbert, 51, of Burlington, at the intersection of Cambridge Street and Olympia Way in Burlington.
Jalbert was found on the pavement next to a Chevy Tahoe whose front end was damaged. He was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
