Two convicted in 2012 pot robbery in Sacramento

Two separate Sacramento Superior Court juries have convicted two men of first-degree murder with special circumstances in the Jan. 31, 2012, shooting death of Tralane Thomas, 19, in a parking lot near the Carol Miller Justice Center in Sacramento.

Both panels also found that the killing took place during the commission of a marijuana robbery. As a result, Jazz Kaylenn Curry, who is now 23, and Christopher Corey Compton, who is 21, will likely be sentenced to life terms in prison with no chance of parole. Authorities identified Curry, who was convicted today, as the shooter in Thomas’ murder. Compton, whose jury returned his guilty verdict on Wednesday, also was armed, officials said.

Judge Steve White scheduled the sentencing on the two men for Feb. 27.
