OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — A jury has found an Oakland man guilty of first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of a Virginia man who was visiting the San Francisco Bay area for a job interview at Google Inc.
The Oakland Tribune (http://bit.ly/XsZZ47 ) reports the Alameda County jury took only a day to convict 26-year-old George Huggins in the death of Jinghong Kang. Jurors handed down the verdict on Wednesday.
Huggins was also found guilty of a special circumstance of murder during a robbery.
Huggins' ex-girlfriend testified during the trial that Huggins fired the shots that killed Kang in downtown Oakland after they robbed Kang of $10, a credit card and a GPS device.
The 45-year-old Kang was visiting from Fairfax, Va. for a job interview at Google.
Huggins faces life in prison without the possibility of parole. He is scheduled to be sentenced on April 18.
