A Freetown man is going to jail for the rest of his life for the 2009 beating and strangling of a 31 year old Florida man.  According to the District Attorney’s Office, a Fall River Superior Court jury on Tuesday found 29 year old Aaron Morin guilty of first degree murder. Police say Morin and another man, Nelson Melo murdered Chad Fleming of Florida in a home on Bay St. in Taunton in a dispute over drugs.  Prosecutors say all three men were selling Percocet pills in the Taunton area.  Melo was convicted of first-degree murder on November 16.  Following the guilty verdict on Tuesday, Judge Robert Kane immediately sentenced Morin to life in prison with no chance of parole.  District Attorney Sam Sutter praised the work of his prosecutors, along with state and Taunton Police.  The D-A said by working together, they were able to put together a strong case which resulted in two first degree murder convictions for the senseless death of Chad Fleming.
