Former CHP officer to be sentenced for murdering her husband
A jury in January found Tomiekia Johnson guilty of first-degree murder for shooting Marcus Lemons in the head in 2009 shortly after the couple left a TGI Friday’s restaurant in Compton.
Johnson collapsed under the defense table after the verdict was read and she was taken from the courtroom by paramedics. She was remanded to custody and faces 50 years to life in prison at sentencing.
