WORCESTER – A Worcester Superior Court jury today found Jeremy Robin guilty of voluntary manslaughter in the 2017 stabbing death of Timothy Commerford, according to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr.
Commerford, 21, of Holliston, died on May 7, 2017 after being stabbed in the chest during an altercation on Green St. in Milford.
After a weeklong trial, Robin was found guilty of the voluntary manslaughter charge and a charge of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon in the death of Commerford. Robin was also found guilty of aggravated assault and battery with a dangerous weapon in the stabbing of a second man during the altercation. The second victim survived his injuries.
Judge Valerie Yarashus revoked Robin’s bail and scheduled sentencing for 9 a.m. on Oct. 29.
“I’d like to commend Assistant District Attorneys Joseph Simmons, Mark McShera and Nathaniel Beaudoin for their hard work in trying this case,” Mr. Early said. “I would also like to recognize the State Police Detectives assigned to the District Attorney’s Office and the Milford Police for their thorough investigation.”
