BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - One of the suspects involved in the robbery and subsequent murder of an elderly woman outside a grocery store is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday morning.
Maxamillon McDonald, the alleged getaway driver, is convicted of first-degree murder and could face 35 years to life in prison.
Last August McDonald's two accomplices reportedly ripped a gold necklace off 72-year-old Guadalupe Ramos' neck and the elderly woman died after falling during the crime.
Prosecutors say McDonald has had practice at this crime.
The night before McDonald allegedly attacked a 49-year-old woman in the exact same way outside a Food Maxx off Ming Avenue.
The East Side Crips gang member is scheduled to be sentenced at 8:30am Thursday morning.
The other two suspects are still in trial.
