CASE: Dameshlo Green (Case #14F03237)

PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Kevin Greene, Homicide Unit

The Honorable Helena Gweon sentenced Dameshlo Green to 75 years to life in prison.  On February 27, 2018, a jury convicted Green of the first-degree murder of Tamisha Ridge and being a felon in possession of a firearm.  The jury also found true that Green personally used a firearm that caused the victim’s death.  The Court found that Green had suffered a prior conviction, felony assault with a deadly weapon, which is a strike under California’s three strikes law.

Green and the victim had and on and off relationship for more than 10 years.  After 5 years of no contact, they resumed their relationship until the victim broke up with Green a few months later.  On May 14, 2014, Green entered the victim’s residence, went into her bedroom and shot her in the head with a shotgun.
