Partial Verdict Read Against Man Accused Of Killing Angels Pitcher

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — A judge has found the man accused of killing rookie Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart and two others guilty of driving on a suspended license but the jury is still deliberating six other charges, including murder.

Orange County Superior Court Judge Richard Toohey found 23-year-old Andrew Gallo guilty of driving on a suspended license during a short bench trial Friday morning.

Gallo had previously requested to have that count separated from the other six counts and waived his right to a jury trial on that particular count.

Gallo has pleaded not guilty to three counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of 22-year-old Adenhart, 20-year-old Courtney Stewart and 25-year-old Henry Pearson.

The jury got the case Thursday after a two-week trial.
