VERDICT: In a decision that shocked no one, jurors in Hackensack today convicted a Bronx man serving time for killing and dismembering his ex-girlfriend of desecrating her remains by trying to bury the parts in a Teaneck basement.
Julio Flores kept the stone face he exhibited through much of his trial.
Already serving 19 years to life for killing 28-year-old Jaritza Calderon in his Bronx apartment in September 2008, he’s expected to have up to 10 years added when he is sentenced on Sept. 20.
Jurors today also convicted him of burglary and hindering his apprehension.
“Thank you and God bless you,” he told his defense attorney.
Flores will be returned to the maximum security prison in Ossining, N.Y. from the Bergen County Jail, where he’d been held before and during the trial in Hackensack.
