    A judge has convicted a Norwood man of running over a Wrentham hotel worker four years ago and dragging her body more than three miles.

    The Norfolk District Attorney's Office says 25-year-old Moses Acloque was convicted on Tuesday of charges including motor vehicle homicide and leaving the scene of an accident after causing death. Sentencing is planned for mid-March.

    Authorities say Acloque was squatting in a vacant room at the Arbor Inn on U.S. Route 1. Hotel management confronted him in November 2013.

    Police say Acloque tried to flee in a truck, but hit 58-year-old Kanchanben Patel, who became stuck under the vehicle and was dragged for miles into Foxborough.

    Patel's body became dislodged after Acloque pulled into the parking lot behind a restaurant near Gillette Stadium.
