Man, 55, convicted in California cold case killing from 1988

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Prosecutors say a man has been convicted of fatally shooting a jewelry salesman at a Los Angeles-area gas station nearly three decades ago.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office says Albert Clark faces 32 years to life in prison when he's sentenced Jan. 10.

The 55-year-old found guilty Monday of one count of first-degree murder with an allegation that he used a handgun in the commission of the crime.

Prosecutors said Clark shot Leroy Galloway multiple times as Galloway sold jewelry out of his van parked at a Pasadena gas station on Feb. 27, 1988.

Clark was charged with the murder that same year but the case was dismissed. It was revived in 2013 thanks to advances in forensic analysis.
