John Kevin McVoy Wiki – John Kevin McVoy Biography
John Kevin McVoy of Corona, California, opened fire after arguing with the victim’s husband. One of the shots hit Susan Garcia as she held her 2-year-old son.
He received the maximum sentence Monday after being convicted of murder last month, the Long Beach Press-Telegram reported.
He is 40 years old.
Susan Garcia Murder
McVoy was in a garage band with Victor Garcia. During practice on Jan. 10, 2017, the two got into an argument over politics at Garcia’s home in North Long Beach, prosecutors said.
McVoy pulled a gun after being teased for saying he had voted for Hillary Clinton and Garcia told him to leave, prosecutors said.
McVoy shot and wounded Garcia and a second shot fatally struck Garcia’s wife, Susan Garcia, 33, as she held their child on her lap.
The child wasn’t hurt.
Garcia was shot in the head. On Monday, he told the court that he was in a coma for months, underwent two brain surgeries, and still has physical issues.
McVoy said he didn’t intend to hurt anyone and apologized to the family.
“As far as my remorse, I think about this every day,” he said.
McVoy’s attorney argued that he shot Garcia in self-defence after being threatened at trial. Still, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Laura Laesekce said McVoy was at fault for bringing the loaded gun and aiming it at Garcia.
“There’s no reason to be pointing a gun,” she said. “Mr Garcia should not bear the weight of this crime.”
