CASE: Patrick Noied (Case #21FE008199)

PROSECUTOR: Principal Criminal Attorney Casey Sinclair, Homicide Unit

Patrick Noied was convicted by a jury of the first-degree murder of Tayler Wellman-Holochwost.  The jury also found true the allegation that Noied personally discharged a firearm causing the death of the victim.

On May, 5, 2021, the victim drove to an apartment complex to sell marijuana to an acquaintance.  The victim, the acquaintance and several other individuals smoked marijuana and hung out together in and around the victim’s car. Patrick Noied joined the group for some time and then left.  He returned to the victim’s car, brandished a firearm and attempted to rob the victim of his marijuana. Noied fired at least two shots into the car striking the victim in the neck and arm. He then reached into the car to grab the victim’s bag of marijuana before fleeing. The victim was able to drive his vehicle to a store and ask for help before succumbing to his injuries minutes later. The gun used in the murder was never recovered.

Noied faces a maximum sentence of 50 years to life in prison.  Sentencing is set for October 14, 2022, at 9:00 a.m. Department 30 before the Honorable Donald Currier.
