SANTA ROSA — The family of murder suspect David Levi Chavez thought it had good news when the judge read the jury’s verdict Friday afternoon — not guilty of first-degree murder.
They erupted in loud cheers — prematurely as it turned out.
District Judge Abigail Aragon then announced that the jury had found Las Vegas resident Chavez, 22, guilty of second-degree murder in the 2008 death of 6-year-old Jasmine Garcia. The victim had been sleeping in a house on Las Vegas’ Union Street when she was struck by gunfire.
