Massachusetts Man Kills Boyfriend To Hide Gay Relationship
Kian Willis of Brockton, Massachusetts was arrested and arraigned in Brockton District Court on Nov. 29. 2018 for killing his boyfriend to hide their gay relationship
He was indicted on a murder charge Monday by a Plymouth County grand jury.
Prosecutors from the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office told the Brockton Enterprise they used phone records and surveillance footage to trace Willis to Keith Avenue, where Willis shot and killed his boyfriend Patrick Sequeira-Ferreira,
When police interviewed Willis, he was concerned that people would find out about his relationship with Sequeira-Ferreira, and was afraid of losing his job, given that both him and the victim worked together at the Office of Community Corrections where relationships with co-workers are forbidden.
Willis will be arraigned in Superior Court at a later date.
