A man who shot and killed an East Palo Alto resident following a parking dispute between two women was convicted of voluntary manslaughter on Thursday, Nov. 14.
The first woman eventually moved her car and left the area. But she returned with Strauter, who got into an argument with Long. Strauter returned to his car, grabbed a handgun and shot Long multiple times before fleeing.
Strauter faced a possible murder conviction, but a San Mateo County jury convicted him of the lesser voluntary manslaughter charge and an enhancement for use of a firearm. He faces up to 12 years in prison, according to California penal codes. He remains in custody without bail, and he will return to San Mateo County Superior Court for sentencing on Jan. 17, 2014.
