Oakland – Delonzo Logwood entered a plea today in Alameda Superior Court of no contest to voluntary manslaughter and a firearm enhancement, for a total of 12 years in state prison. A plea of no contest still results in a guilty finding by the Judge.
Mr. Logwood also had been charged in the 2008 murders of Richard Carter and Zaire Washington but Alameda Superior Court Judge Mark McCannon granted a motion to dismiss those two counts last month. Mr. Logwood continued to face one count of the murder of Ford until today’s hearing.
Judge McCannon accepted the no contest plea but will not indicate whether he will approve the sentencing until July 13, 2023. Mr. Logwood, who has maintained his innocence since he was charged in 2015, has been incarcerated in Santa Rita County Jail for eight years.
