CASE: Joshua Childers (Case #17FE005883)
PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Satnam Rattu, Homicide Unit
Joshua Childers was convicted by a jury of the first-degree murder of Victoria Vasquez. The jury also found true a use of firearm enhancement.
On March 28, 2017, a Placer County 911 dispatch received a call from a man reporting he had shot his wife and she could be found in a mobile home park in South Sacramento. A record check of the phone number used to call 911 located an address associated with the phone number. Officers responded to the residence and found a deceased woman in a bedroom. Law enforcement located Childers by pinging his phone and he was taken into custody the same day.
Childers faces a maximum sentence of 50 years to life in prison. Sentencing is set for March 22, 2019, at 10:00 a.m. in Department 34 before the Honorable Ernest Sawtelle.
