    (NECN) -  For the second time, a man has been convicted for the 2004 murder of his ex-girlfriend on Nantucket, Mass.

    Thomas Toolan III was convicted Thursday of first-degree murder in the death of Elizabeth Lochtefeld.

    The state's highest court threw out his 2007 conviction, saying jurors weren't properly screened.

    Lochtefeld, a former New York City business consultant who had moved to Nantucket, broke up with Toolan a few days before her death.
