A woman convicted of murder and facing a sentence of 18 years to life has been released on bail, outraging prosecutors and the victim’s family.
Victoria Flores, 35, was convicted Friday of second-degree murder in the death two years ago of Rhonda McClinton.
Police testified they saw Flores shoot McClinton in the head after a fight outside a bar.
Superior Court Judge Morris Jones denied prosecutors’ request to revoke Flores’ $100,000 bail pending her sentencing on Jan. 16, or to increase it to $1 million.
McClinton’s grandfather, Nathaniel Robinson, said Flores “shouldn’t be able to walk free. I know Flores is a danger to society.”
There was no explanation from the judge.
