A second defendant convicted of murder in the shooting death of a cab driver in North Highlands three years ago was sentenced today to 26 years to life in prison.
Sacramento Superior Court Judge Cheryl Chun Meegan imposed the term on Jonathan Steven Hudson, 21, for the Oct. 18, 2010, killing of James Walker, 54. The shooting occurred in the parking lot of the Hillside Village Apartments.
Walker was convicted for his participation in the robbery that resulted in Walker's death. The gunman, Jermaine John Campbell, 21, had previously been sentenced to life in prison without parole and another term of 25-to-life.
