PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Satnam Rattu, Gangs & Hate Crimes Unit
Tiana Smith-Anderson was convicted by a jury for the second-degree murder of Singh B. Singh. The jury also found true that Smith-Anderson used a deadly weapon in the course of the murder. At sentencing, the Court will determine the truth of an additional allegation that Smith-Anderson suffered a prior conviction and prison commitment.
Mr. Singh and Smith-Anderson were acquaintances. On September 8, 2013, Smith-Anderson was alone with 84-year-old Mr. Singh at his Oak Park home. Later that night, Mr. Singh’s daughter returned home and went to bed. When she woke up the next morning, she went to check on her father and found him on the bedroom floor covered with a blanket and a large pool of blood. Responding officers found Mr. Singh dead on scene. Singh’s autopsy revealed he had been stabbed 26 times.
Tiana Smith-Anderson faces a maximum sentence of 17 years to life in prison. Sentencing is set for January 6, 2017, at 9:00 a.m. in Department 15 before the Honorable Kevin McCormick.
