NEW YORK (WCBS 880/AP) -- Two more defendants have been convicted of some charges in the 2015 slaying of an aide to New York state Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Michah Alleyne, 26, was found guilty of manslaughter and criminal possession of weapon, but was acquitted of murder. His co-defendant, Stanley Elianor, 27, was convicted of reckless endangerment, but acquitted of murder, manslaughter and weapons charges.

On Monday, the same jury acquitted Keith Luncheon of all charges.

A separate jury last week found Kenny Bazile guilty of manslaughter in the fatal shooting of Carey Gabay, the deputy counsel of the state's economic development agency.

Gabay got caught in the middle of a gang-related gun battle at the J’ouvert Festival, held in the hours before a West Indian Day parade in Brooklyn.

A fifth suspect took a plea deal.
