A young man from Richmond found guilty of fatally stabbing a 72-year-old woman in South Berkeley after a wedding in 2014 was sentenced to 21 years to life in prison Friday.
The 21-year-old Richmond man charged in the fatal stabbing and carjacking of a 72-year-old woman in 2014 has taken a plea and is scheduled to be sentenced this week.
A 20-year-old man accused of murder with special circumstances was ordered Wednesday morning by an Alameda County Superior Court judge to face nearly all of the charges filed against him as the case moves ahead to trial.
Judge Rhonda Burgess dismissed one count and one special circumstance related to rape allegations, and said the prosecution had not presented sufficient evidence to support those charges.
