Ross found guilty of murder
ELMIRA, N.Y. -- The conviction of Romondo Ross brought little solace to the victim's family.
"How am I supposed to feel? This is another family that their dad is gone. So it's more children that are going to grow up without their father. I don't feel good about this. It's a horrible situation," said Tanisha Logan-Davis.
A situation for which no one wanted to take responsibility.
"I didn't really see any remorse at all throughout the whole thing," Logan-Davis said.
And investigators had to battle to build the case.

"They were getting very little cooperation from the various witnesses to this crime," Logan-Davis said.
But the case was strong enough to convince the jury that Ross was involved in the shooting.
"We didn't have to prove that he had the firearm or that he fired the fatal shot that killed poor Maurice Davis, provided the jury could find that he was acting in concert with the others," said Chemung County District Attorney Weeden Wetmore.
"And in this case, the theory was shooting a gun into a crowded housing complex so recklessly that you have a depraved indifference for human life. And the law says that's just as serious as intentionally wanting to kill somebody," said defense attorney Paul Corradini.
Davis' wife says it's time for the family to move on.
"I forgive them. I really do," said Logan-Davis.
Although Ross was not convicted of any of the lesser weapons charges, he still faces a maximum sentence of 25 years to life.
The District Attorney said that he is pleased with the outcome of the trial, but there is no time to rest. The trial of the second man accused in the shooting, Demetrius Molina, is scheduled to begin in two weeks.
