Karen Maeshiro, (661) 267-5744 A state appellate court has upheld the second-degree murder conviction of a Palmdale ex-convict who gunned down a man in front of his home as the victim’s stepchildren watched. Defendant Raymond Charles Randolph had argued that the trial court erred by not instructing the jury to consider that he had consumed tequila when it decided whether he had the required mental state to commit the crime. “Although the evidence showed appellant had been drinking, appellant presented no evidence that his drinking of 4 ounces of tequila had an effect on his entertaining the specific intent to kill,” the ruling from the Second District Court of Appeal said. “There was no evidence that appellant was intoxicated at the time of this offense, nor was there any evidence of the effect of any intoxication on his mental state at the time of the offense,” the ruling said. last_img read more
