HONOLULU (KHNL) -- After six days of deliberations, a Circuit Court jury Tuesday reached a verdict in the sheriff murder trial.
The panel of seven men and five women found Patrick Lorenzo guilty of second-degree murder, kidnapping and several firearms offenses.
But the defendant was acquitted on the most-serious charge of first-degree attempted murder, which carries a punishment of life in prison without the possibility of parole. The jury also found him not guilty of robbery.
Armed with a gun, Lorenzo stormed into Osake Sushi Bar and Lounge February 10th. Deputy Sheriff Daniel Browne-Sanchez, who worked at the bar part-time, was fatally shot.
