Man Sentenced for Murder of Parents and Former Girlfriend

Filed under: California Defense Attorney — Tags: , , — fayarfa @ 12:45 pm

LOS ANGELES – A 29-year-old man convicted earlier this month of murdering his parents and a former girlfriend was sentenced today to 85 years to life, plus three consecutive life-without-parole sentences.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Bob Bowers imposed the sentence on Joshua Vick of Los Angeles, who was convicted on May 2 of three counts of first-degree murder with true findings on two special circumstance allegations – murder during a kidnapping and multiple murders. A special allegation that Vick personally used a handgun in the killings also was found to be true.

The defendant was additionally convicted of one count each of robbery and attempted robbery, and three counts of making criminal threats. Deputy District Attorney Robert Grace of the Major Crimes Division prosecuted the case.

Vick fatally shot his mother and father, Mary and Gable Vick, on Jan. 14, 2005, at their apartment. Authorities said that on the same day, he kidnapped his former girlfriend, Tesha Collins, from an education center where she was teaching.

Police spotted Vick driving in South Los Angeles the next day and pulled the car over. He was arrested after a gun battle with police. Collins body was found next to the car. She also was fatally shot.
