A Suffolk Superior Court jury has convicted Marcos Colono, 36, of Cambridge, of breaking into an Allston apartment at knifepoint, binding the two women inside with extension cords, then raping and robbing them in 2008, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
The Commonwealth Avenue case had gone unsolved until 2010, when Colono was arrested for a Cambridgeport home invasion in which he was charged with beating a man and his son; DNA from that case matched DNA found in the Allston apartment.
Colono, who served as his own attorney, will be sentenced on July 10 for the four counts of aggravated rape, two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon and single counts of home invasion and armed burglary, the DA's office says.
