The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court today upheld the first-degree murder
conviction of Alex Scesny, according to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr.
A Worcester Superior Court jury found Mr. Scesny guilty on March 29, 2012 of the 1996
strangulation death of Teresa Stone in Fitchburg. The SJC found that there was sufficient
evidence to support the murder conviction, but that the evidence was insufficient to support the
jury’s guilty verdict on a charge of aggravated rape.
