SANTA ANA (CBSLA.com) — An Orange County man was found guilty Tuesday of killing his roommate in 2013.
Kwang Joy, 54, was convicted of second-degree murder for the death of Iraq war veteran and Cal State Fullerton student Maribel Ramos.
Officials believe Ramos, 36, and Joy got into an argument May 2, 2013, after she told him he needed to move out of her home in Orange.
Ramos’ body was found in Modjeska Canyon off Santiago Canyon Road two weeks later.
During the search for the victim, Joy maintained his innocence and repeatedly talked about his love for Ramos, who he said was his best friend.
