CASE: Kavon Cry, Omar Talley & Eric Ring
PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney William Satchell, Homicide Unit
Kavon Cry, Omar Talley, and Eric Ring were convicted by a jury of first-degree murder. The jury also found true that Kavon Cry personally discharged a firearm causing death and the special circumstance that the murder was committed during the commission of an attempted robbery.
On the night of October 18, 2014, the three defendants set up a marijuana transaction with the victim, Marquail Hayes. The victim was to purchase $2,000 worth of marijuana and was instructed to meet the defendants at Riverview Elementary School in Rancho Cordova. Upon arriving at the school, Ring handed the victim a bag that was supposed to contain the marijuana. When the victim began opening the bag, Talley and Cry emerged from a play area where they were hiding. The victim ran and was shot in the back of the head by Cry.
All three defendants face a maximum potential sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole. Sentencing is set for August 26, 2016, in Department 16 before the Honorable Marjorie Koller.
