St. John’s — Convicted murderer Steven Michael Neville has been found guilty of assaulting a man with a beer bottle.
The decision was rendered Friday by Justice Alphonsus Faour at the end of Neville’s trial in Newfoundland Supreme Court.
The judge sentenced Neville to a 90-day jail term, which will be served at the same time he’s serving his life sentence for second-degree murder and attempted murder.
Neville was convicted last year of killing one man and trying to kill another in Paradise in October 2010. He was sentenced to life in prison with no eligibility of parole for 12 years.
Four months before the murder, he smashed a beer bottle in another man’s face. The incident happened at a field by Ryan’s Pond, which is off the Trans-Canada Highway near Middle Gull Pond, east of Gushue’s Pond Park. Neville was part of a group on a camping trip when, on June 26, 2010, a fight broke out.
