Morjana, Rancho Cordova

A: James Feci remains in Sacramento County Jail, charged with murder in the shooting death of his roommate, 26-year-old Matthew Lambert in September.

His next court date is Nov. 10 to set a trial date, according to Sacramento Superior Court records available online.

Sacramento County sheriff’s deputies went to a home in the 9500 block of Linda Rio Drive in the La Riviera neighborhood just before 9:30 p.m Sept. 14 after receiving a 911 call about a shooting. They found Lambert with a gunshot wound to his head. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A sheriff’s spokesman said the two men had been involved in an argument and physical fight before the shooting. In an interview with The Sacramento Bee, Lambert’s stepfather said a third roommate who was home at the time of the incident told him the shooting stemmed from a fight regarding Lambert’s girlfriend.
