A Lemon Grove man was sentenced Oct. 24 to 50 years to life in prison for killing a man over his truck after his ex-girlfriend asked him to retrieve the vehicle for her.

Fredrick Justin Weekly, 36, was given 25 years to life for first-degree murder of Kirk Sampson, 47, on Sept. 3, 2015. He was given an additional 25 years for using a gun in a homicide. A jury convicted him on Sept. 21.

Weekly’s girlfriend, Angela Elaine Anderson, 37, was given an 11-year term by San Diego Superior Court Judge Louis Hanoian on Oct. 7. She pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter.

Both were ordered to share the $5,000 restitution figure to the crime victim’s fund for the victim’s funeral. Anderson asked Weekly to get the truck from Sampson. Weekly shot Sampson to death in the truck and left the body in Encanto. The truck was hidden in Lakeside for a while, but was later found in San Ysidro.

Hanoian gave Weekly credit for 404 days he has already served in jail and fined him $10,244. It was mentioned Weekly had a tattoo with the numbers “187”, which is a reference to the penal code number for murder.

Deputy District Attorney Melissa Vasel said earlier that Anderson “manipulates all the men in her life” and directed Weekly to get the truck for her. She had paid the victim some money for the truck, but didn’t have possession of it. Two friends of the victim spoke on his behalf at Weekly’s sentencing.

Jury convicts El Cajon man of first-degree murder

A jury has convicted Donald Ray Lewis, 41, of first-degree murder in the slaying of James Melvin Crawford, Jr., 40, who was shot to death in an El Cajon parking lot on Aug. 19, 2015.

Lewis will be sentenced Nov. 17 before El Cajon Superior Court Judge John Thompson. Deputy District Attorney Sophia Roach said he faces 50 years to life in prison. Lewis remains in jail without bail.

Lewis, also known as Maceo Lewis, had a dispute with Crawford over money and other matters before he pulled a gun around 7:15 p.m. near an apartment complex at 989 Peach Ave. Crawford later died at a hospital.

Lewis, of El Cajon, fled, but was arrested several days later. The jury deliberated about an hour before finding him guilty of first-degree murder.

Santana coach pleads guilty to illicit meeting with minor

A former track coach at Santana High School pleaded guilty Oct. 28 to a felony charge of arranging an illicit meeting with a 16-year-old girl. All four misdemeanor fondling charges were dismissed.

Keith Alan Silvia, 50, of Lakeside, will likely be placed on probation and has no criminal record, said Deputy District Attorney Aidee Bruner. She said he may have to register as a sex offender and serve some time in county jail, but prison is likely ruled out.

El Cajon Superior Court Judge Daniel Goldstein set sentencing for Jan. 4, 2017. Silvia remains free on $100,000 bond.

Silvia was the girl’s coach and also worked as a campus supervisor. He was placed on administrative leave and no longer works at Santana.

The girl’s parents discovered some explicit letters to her that were written by him in her backpack. Silvia admitted he met the girl on June 12 at 3 a.m. in a Lakeside parking lot, but there were no sex acts alleged.

El Cajon woman pleads guilty of making criminal threat to school employee

Julie Rae Moore, 54, of El Cajon, has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of making a criminal threat to an employee of the El Cajon Valley Union School District.

Moore was a parent of a student and made an angry statement during a phone call to the District in which El Cajon Police were contacted. She was still on the phone with the employee when they arrived at her home on Dec. 18, 2015.

An El Cajon Superior Court judge placed her on three years probation and gave her credit for one day previously spent in jail. A felony charge of making a criminal threat was reduced to a misdemeanor. Moore has a prior conviction of making a criminal threat to an El Cajon Police officer in 2011 and previously was declared a “habitual traffic offender,” according to court records.
