Share this post

The fate of a Gary woman on trial for the 2009 shooting death of a man she had been involved with for some time, has been determined.  The Times is reporting that it took less than 90-minutes Friday for a Lake County`jury to find 34 year-old Kaneda Kidd guilty of murder.  Prosecutors had argued Kidd had opened fire on the victim, 37 year-old Jermaine Ellis, after the couple left a party held by friends in Merrillville. 

The defense countered that the shooting was the result of years of domestic abuse.  However, Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Michael Toth said Kidd methodically shot Ellis 10 times.

Kidd will next be sentenced on May 10th, according to the article.  Read more at:
