A jury in New York City has convicted a man for the 1979 kidnapping and murder of six-year-old Etan Patz, a case that haunted the city for nearly 38 years.
Pedro Hernandez, 56, was found guilty on the ninth day of jury deliberations and after two lengthy trials.
Hernandez, who worked as a shop clerk near where Etan lived, confessed to luring the boy into his basement with a drink before choking him to death.
A 2015 trial ended in mistrial after 18 days of jury deliberation.
