LOS ANGELES (AP) — A homeless woman has been convicted of second-degree murder in the death of an 84-year-old woman who was pushed off a Los Angeles train platform.
Jackkqueline Pogue was found guilty late Tuesday shortly after her case was submitted to a jury.
Pogue’s lawyer said during the trial that she was an unmedicated schizophrenic who had been released from a hospital three days earlier.
She has also pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity and the sanity phase of her trial begins Wednesday.
Witnesses said Betty Sugiyama was walking with her sister when the 46-year-old Pogue pushed her off the commuter rail platform onto the tracks. She struck her head and never regained consciousness.
An earlier jury deadlocked, uncertain if Pogue acted deliberately and understood the consequences of her actions.
