Nick Adenhart death: Man convicted of second-degree murder

Updated at 2:07 p.m.

The man accused of causing the car crash in which Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart and two others were killed has been found guilty of second-degree murder.

The jury also found Andrew Gallo, 23, guilty of hit-and-run and driving under the influence of alcohol and causing great bodily injury. Gallo, who had pleaded not guilty, was accused of drinking for hours, then running a red light and striking a car carrying Adenhart, 22, and his friends hours after Adenhart had pitched six scoreless innings in his season debut.

Because he pleaded not guilty, and he was found guilty, his sentence should be doubled for committing perjury.
