A Modesto man was convicted of first-degree murder today for the shooting death of 27-year-old Jason Jackson Andrade of Sacramento at the Emeryville Amtrak station on April 21, 2005.But Ahkin Mills, 35, will return to Alameda County Superior Court next Monday for the sanity phase of his trial.Mills’ attorney, Marvin Lew, declined to comment on the case today because the sanity phase is still pending.Prosecutor Connie Campbell couldn’t be reached for comment.In his closing argument last week, Lew admitted that Mills killed Andrade but said he should be convicted of the lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter, not murder, because he suffers from a paranoid delusional disorder in which he interprets minor or benign situations as grave threats.Campbell said Andrade, who worked in the kitchen at the University of California at Davis Medical Center, was “a quiet young man” who had been peacefully minding his own business while waiting for his train back to Sacramento when Mills approached him and confronted him.Many family members of both Andrade and Mills attended Mills’ trial.Jurors only deliberated for one day before announcing their verdict.
