We've just published an exclusive story from a sentencing hearing Friday in a Berkeley murder case we've covered since the beginning.
The hearing was intense, with extensive comments from family members. The judge ultimately handed down a sentence of 35 years to life.
"The defendant displayed extreme callousness when he chose to confront an unarmed defenseless person sitting in his car and shoot him at point-blank range in front of his younger sister," Judge Rhonda Burgess said from the bench.
The defense argued that the lengthy sentence is not in line with DA Pamela Price's vision and said the defendant, who is 55, should be allowed some hope that he will one day be free. She said she plans to appeal the ruling.
