A Sacramento Superior Court jury today convicted two women of second-degree murder and torture in the Sept. 14, 2011, beating death of a man at an abandoned north side car wash.
The verdicts were returned against Adrienne Boulware, 36, and Amoura Dawson, 23, in the killing of 34-year-old Audie Hogue, 34, whose body was found in the car wash on Marysville Boulevard.
According to testimony at trial, an argument between the two women and Hogue -- possibly over his use of a racial epithet -- sparked the fatal beating. Hogue's blood-alcohol level was measured at .30 at the time of his death, according to a medical examiner's testimony.
Judge Michael A. Savage scheduled the sentencing on Boulware and Dawson for Oct. 18.
