Home Depot Killing Update

Jason Russell Richardson sits with his defense team during the opening statement phase of his murder trial April 12 at the Central Justice Center in Santa Ana.

In the latest news regarding the case of Tom Egan's death during a Home Depot robbery, the jury has found Jason R. Richardson guilty of murder and various enhancements. A surveillance video from the incident shows a man with a dust mask and white coveralls in the store with a shot gun. The prosecutor described Richardson shooting Egan as a senseless act, practically disregarding human life over money in a cash register. The Public Defender's argument was that Richardson reacted out of panic, basically an unplanned knee jerk reaction to Egan's presence. The enhancements to the murder count subjects Richardson to the possibility of a death penalty sentence.
