A Toronto jury has reached a verdict in the killing of Brandon Ramdeen, one of two men who was stabbed to death after they stepped off a Toronto harbour cruise in June 2009.

Ramdeen, and another man Andy James, died after they were involved in a fight as a boat carrying more than 200 people unloaded in a parking lot at Polson Pier on June 21, 2009.

Kimron Bengy was found guilty Saturday of second-degree murder and Edwin Modeste guilty of manslaughter in Ramdeen’s death.

Bengy was found not guilty Saturday of second-degree in the death of James.

The Crown is prosecuting Leon Alexander for James’s murder and also prosecuting three men including Alexander for manslaughter in Ramdeen’s killing.

Linda Ramdeen spoke to CBC News on Saturday and said there is now some closure in the death of her son.

“Nothing is gonna bring him back but I am relieved at least we got justice for him,” she said Saturday.
