PATERSON, N.J. – Jurors convicted a Paterson man of murder Tuesday for killing another man who tried to break up an argument between him and his wife.

Andrae Green, 30, of Paterson, was also convicted of weapons possession following a nearly two-week trial.

He faces 30 years to life at a scheduled June 1 sentencing.

Prosecutors showed jurors evidence that Green was arguing with his wife on Sept. 15, 2014 in front of Moya’s Bar, at the corner of 10th Avenue and 27th Street in Paterson,  when 27-year-old Antoine Garris intervened.

Both men argued before Green left the bar, returning 10 minutes later with a handgun, prosecutors said.

Green fired seven shots, five of which struck Garris, killing him, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes said.

A manhunt ended when U.S. Marshals captured Green on Oct. 8 in Rochester, N.Y.

A previous trial ended in a hung jury last October.

Handing the current case is Assistant Passaic County Prosecutor Peter Foy.
