Jury convicts defendant in Camille Love trial

The jury has convicted a 22-year-old man on trial in the 2010 slaying of Camille Love.

The verdict was read shortly after 2:40 p.m. News Tribune staff writer Adam Lynn is in the courtroom.

Pierce County prosecutors have alleged Eduardo Sandoval was a lookout on Feb. 7, 2010, when the 20-year-old Love was fatally shot as she drove her car down an  East Side street. Her brother, who was in the passenger seat, was wounded.

Sandoval originally was on trial with three other men in the slaying. During the course of the trial, which began in October, the other three  pleaded guilty.

Prosecutors have alleged members of a gang were looking for someone to shoot in retaliation for an earlier attack on one of their members. They picked Love’s car because it was red, the color of a rival gang thought responsible for the previous shooting. Love’s brother, Josh, also was wearing a red jacket.

Another man charged in the case, Dean Salavea, is set to go to trial later this month. He is accused of helping to steal the van from which the fatal shots were fired and acting as a lookout.

Two other men charged in Love’s death are being sought on warrants. Authorities believe they may have fled to Mexico.

    Gangs. Sheesh, what a bunch of morons.

  2. The two that fled to Mexico will try and get back across eventually because being incarcerated here is a higher quality of life than walking around free in Mexico.

  3. The awful truth is that around 25% of the illegals from Mexico are criminals-according to ICE. Yes folks, the current system allows criminals to walk freely among us.

    I’m not a Mexican, but in thier defense, why is it that “Americans” hang out in front of 7-11 asking for money, yet Mexicans hang out in front of home depot and ask for work?

    While I believe that all illegals should be deported, I must also agree with you elldeesharp. Maybe keep the illegals willing to work, and ship the beggars to Mexico?
