A Huntington Beach man was convicted Wednesday of the shooting death of another man at a city park, according to the Orange County district attorney's office.
Derek Christopher Adams, 23, of Huntington Beach shot and killed Gregory Heintz of Garden Grove at Murdy Park in Huntington Beach on Oct. 22, 2010.
Heintz was there with friends to get a phone that Adams had stolen, prosecutors said.
His co-defendant, Marissa Star Bilotti, 21, of Huntington Beach, is awaiting trial in September for murder, robbery and aggravated assault charges, prosecutors said.
Earlier on the day of the shooting, Adams forcefully entered the home of parolee Cody Mosher in Newport Beach and confronted him and his girlfriend, whom Adams was romantically interested in, according to prosecutors.
FOR THE RECORD:
An earlier version incorrectly had Cody's last name as Masher. It is actually Mosher.
Adams argued with Mosher and his girlfriend, then stole money and Mosher's phone, according to prosecutors.
