A jury today found two men guilty of killing a 67-year-old woman a year ago, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced.

Devon T. White, 21, of Lynwood, and James Wesley Trotter aka Man-Man, 22, of Long Beach, were both found guilty of one count each of murder with a special circumstance allegation of murder during the commission of a robbery; second-degree robbery; and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

A third co-defendant, Tonaye Eunice James (dob 8/9/95) of Las Vegas, pleaded no contest on July 31 to one count of second-degree robbery.

Sentencing for White is scheduled on Aug. 29 and on Sept. 25 for Trotter in Department G of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Burbank Courthouse.

They both face life in prison without the possibility of parole.

White and Trotter followed victim Hye Soon Oh from her business in Lynwood to her apartment complex in Montrose on Aug. 8, 2017, the prosecutors said. The victim was then gunned down and robbed at her apartment building's parking garage, the prosecutor added.
