A man has been found guilty of the murder of Felipe Flores, 19 years after the event.

A 47-year-old bouncer, Paul Armstrong, was found guilty of bashing the 27-year-old to death after he’d left the Exchange Hotel on the night of September 2, 1991.

Armstrong had admitted to having a relationship with Flores, but had denied committing the murder.

DNA testing, which became possible in 2008, showed blood found under Armstrong’s nails was the victim’s.

Armstrong is now awaiting sentencing.
