Jonnyrae Witt, who forced the lockdown and evacuations of two Rio Linda neighborhoods last year, has been found guilty of murdering his girlfriend Leslie Cramblit by a Yuba County jury.
Witt was accused of shooting Cramblit in the head during a violent domestic dispute in the Rackerby home where he was hiding out from Sacramento County authorities. He was found hiding out in a Carmichael home five days after the killing.
Witt will be sentenced on August 30th, during which the judge will hear statements from the Cramblit family members.
He faces 40 years to life in prison.
