State Appeal Court Affirms Second Degree Murder Charge for Barnstable Suspect

BARNSTABLE –The Massachusetts Appeal Court has affirmed the second degree murder conviction of Julian Green.

Green was found guilty by a Barnstable Superior Court Jury in July 2010 for murder, assault with a dangerous weapon and assault and battery.

On the evening of July 18, 2007, shots from two different guns were fired into a residence on General Patton Road in Hyannis, killing Jacques Sellers.

The 28 year old Boston native was sentenced to a term of life for murder in the second degree and 3-5 years on the two assault charges.

Green’s lawyers raised multiple claims on appeal, alleging errors in both the trail proceedings and the denial of the motion for a new trial.

The case was investigated by the State Police Detectives Unit of the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s Office and the Barnstable Police Department.
