Yankee/Red Sox Rivalry Goes Too Far, Yanks Fan Convicted Of Second-Degree Murder

NASHUA, N.H. -- A New Hampshire woman has been convicted of second-degree murder for hitting a man with her car after he taunted her for being a New York Yankees fan.

The Nashua Telegraph reports that jurors returned the guilty verdict against 45-year-old Ivonne Hernandez late Monday afternoon, a few hours after hearing closing arguments. She was accused of killing 29-year-old Matthew Beaudoin in a Nashua parking lot in May 2008.

Hernandez testified that she was terrified because Beaudoin and others harassed her about the Yankees sticker on her car and pounded on her windows when she made a comment about how many World Series they had won compared with the Boston Red Sox.

She denied telling police she was trying to scare Beaudoin and said she didn't mean to hit him.
