June 6, 2007

Albany-  Ronald King has been found guilty of felony murder, and malice murder, and has been sentenced to life plus five years in the shooting death of a 14-year-old Hakeem Kendrick. The jury took only about 40 minutes to convict King for the June 2005 murder on Avalon Avenue.

One witness said the shooting happened after a drug deal. Ronald King did testify in his own defense and admitted CME Rattlers gang members were involved in the shooting, but claimed he wasn't involved.

Thursday morning, attorneys will make opening statements in a case where an argument over a two dollar bet turned into murder.

Prosecutors say Charles Gaillard shot Richard Hardwick between the eyes with a .22 caliber pistol September 10th outside a pool hall on East Broad Avenue. The two were said to be arguing over a two dollar bet Hardwick lost and would not pay.

When the argument escalated, Gaillard pulled a knife and later the gun to threaten Hardwick. Gaillard claimed the shooting was in self defense.
