William Edwards, 41, was convicted of murder and conspiracy — along with enhancements for lying in wait, killing on behalf of a North Richmond gang, and using a firearm — in the June killing of Taison Calderon-Lopez. The verdict virtually guarantees that Edwards will die in prison, barring a successful appeal; he faces a sentence of life without the possibility of parole. Calderon-Lopez was shot as he climbed into a white pickup truck in the early morning of June 1, He too drove a white truck, and prosecutors theorized that Edwards was supposed to shoot him but picked the wrong house.
Edwards testified that she loaned the stolen Jeep that was used in the crime to someone and that person was likely behind the killing. He said when he discovered this, he cut ties with the woman and kicked her out of his home, which he said explained why she pointed the finger at him on the witness stand.
After that, he got a job at the local nonprofit Rubicon, though he was fired for allegedly attempting to recruit a woman into prostitution after she showed up at the center and described herself as a trafficking victim in need of assistance. It does not appear authorities knew in advance that Edwards would be interviewed by a reporter.
During the same time period, authorities recorded numerous other conversations. DeFerrari also played tapes of Edwards lying to his father about his whereabouts on June 1, and making several statements to police that were inconsistent with his testimony.
