A Suffolk Superior Court jury convicted a Chelsea man on Thursday of stabbing his mother’s boyfriend to death during a fight at their Chester Avenue home two years ago.

Eugene Teixeira, 23, was convicted on manslaughter for the April 29, 2008 stabbing death of Cleo Wiggins.

Jurors found Teixeira’s brother, Aasim Smith, now 18, not guilty.

“Prosecutors had argued during the two-week trial that Teixeira fatally stabbed Wiggins and that Smith, who allegedly wielded a baseball bat but was kept away from Wiggins by a family friend, shared his deadly intent,” prosecutors said.

But a jury only believed Teixeira was guilty.
