People v. Boswell (Cal. Ct. App. - Oct. 13, 2016)

See if you can figure out in advance how this is going to end:

"Eighty-seven-year-old Griffin lived alone in a home in San Diego. Her neighbor, Ana Murillo, occasionally took Griffin to casinos because Griffin liked to gamble. Griffin managed her own money and always kept money hidden around the house, including any winnings from her gambling. Boswell, a drug user, lived with Murillo. Boswell did not work and Murillo gave him money to buy drugs."

If you guessed "It will end badly," you are correct.  Boswell kills the 87-year old woman and is sentenced to LWOP for murder.

The Court of Appeal affirms.
