An Oakland man was convicted of second-degree murder today for fatally shooting another man after a brief argument over a woman three years ago. Jurors deliberated for less than two full days before delivering their verdict against 61-year-old Christopher Miles for the death of 59-year-old Danny Jackson. The shooting occurred in a yard where Miles was living in the 1400 block of 79th Avenue in East Oakland at about 10:40 a.m. on April 12, 2010.
Prosecutor Greg Dolge said Miles shot Jackson twice with a high-powered rifle even though Jackson was unarmed. Miles is scheduled to be sentenced by Alameda County Superior Court Judge Jon Rolefson on Oct. 2. This was Miles’ second trial; his first trial last year ended with a hung jury.
