The court declared Rashaun Weaver guilty of killing Majors in Manhattan’s Morningside Park.
Based on court records, Majors, an Ivy League freshman was jogging in on W. 116th St. near Morningside Drive when Weaver then 14, and two other accomplices attacked her.
Weaver and his friends asked Majors to hand over to them her iPhone.
