Honolulu Jury Convicts Man Of 2011 Shooting Rampage

A Honolulu jury has convicted a man of second-degree murder for a 2011 shooting spree in Hawaii that left one person dead and two wounded.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser is following the story:

"[T]he jury refused to convict [Toby] Stangel, 30, of Wahiawa on first-degree attempted murder charges that carry a mandatory life term without parole, the state's harshest sentence.

"Stangel faces a life term with the chance of parole for the second-degree murder and attempted murder convictions.

"But city prosecutors will press for a life term without parole because of Stangel's second-degree murder and second-degree attempted murder convictions."

The June 3, 2011, shooting spree, which began at a Honolulu intersection, killed a mother of 10 in her minivan. She was shot in the head. The shooting then continued onto the H-1 freeway, where two other motorists were shot and wounded. Stangel was eventually arrested in Pearl City.

The Associated Press reports: "Defense attorney John Schum didn't dispute that Stangel committed the shootings but argued his client didn't have the 'state of mind' to prove intent."

Circuit Judge Glenn Kim set the sentencing for July 31.
