Meet DA Nancy E. O'Malley

People v Charles Lamont Kimbrough

On August 28, 2014, a jury convicted Charles Lamont Kimbrough of first degree murder. On April 20, 2011, Chris Donaldson, Charles Kimbrough, and Richard Ezell conspired to rob William Adrian Sapp, who placed an ad on Craigslist to sell marijuana. At the exchange point, Kimbrough appeared and tried to take the marijuana which led to a brawl. Kimbrough brought a fake pistol and victim Sapp had a loaded .38 revolver. The shooting occurred as Sapp had the fake gun and Ezell picked up the victim's gun; Ezell shot once and killed the victim. In June 2014, Donaldson was convicted of first degree murder. Ezell testified and pled to second degree murder. Defendant Kimbrough will be sentenced on October 31, 2014. The case was prosecuted by DDA Patrick Moriarty with assistance from DA Inspector George Phillips.
