Biggs gang-shooting trial ends abruptly - Oroville Mercury Register

12:35 | ,

Biggs gang-shooting trial ends abruptly - Oroville Mercury Register: "Biggs gang-related shooting trial ended abruptly Tuesday when prosecutors moved in court to dismiss all charges against one suspect and offered a 10-year plea-bargain to a co-defendant, who had also been facing a potential life sentence in the case.
The resolution came after defense attorney Grady Davis turned over new information to the prosecutor casting doubt on the credibility of a key witness.
Deputy district attorney Kurt Worley said the information raised a 'reasonable doubt in my mind' as to the involvement of Jose Odilon Melchor, 27, of Yuba City, in connection with a Jan. 11, 2009, drive-by shooting in Biggs that left a woman injured.
With the jury out of the courtroom, the prosecutor moved to dismiss charges against Melchor Tuesday afternoon.
Alejandro Magana, 21 at the time of the shooting, pleaded guilty to shooting at an inhabited dwelling and a gang enhancement. A great bodily injury gang-related enhancement, which could have carried a potential life sentence, was dropped in exchange for Magana's plea."
