Woman Sentenced for Wilmington Murder

Filed under: California Defense Attorney — fayarfa @ 3:47 am

A 25-year-old woman was sentenced to 50 years to life in state prison for fatally shooting a teenager in Wilmington, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Deputy District Attorney Rebecca Brownstone said a jury deliberated for a little more than three hours before finding Misty Marie Magallon guilty of first-degree murder on Jan. 29.

Jurors also found true a special allegation that the defendant personally and intentionally discharged a firearm causing great bodily injury and death.

The prosecutor said that in the afternoon of Nov. 20, 2011, Magallon walked up to Richard Rodriguez, 17, in an alley and shot him 20 times. A man heard the shots and saw the defendant run down the alley with a gun in her hand.             Law enforcement arrived at the scene and the witness was able to identify Magallon as the shooter because he had seen her before in the area and noticed a distinctive tattoo on her neck, the prosecutor said.

Two days after the killing, Magallon was arrested in connection with the shooting and held on $2 million bail.

The case was investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department.
