3rd-degree murder conviction in Philly shooting

October 29, 2013

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A northeastern Philadelphia man has been convicted of third-degree murder in a shooting death at a restaurant in the trendy Northern Liberties section of the city last year.

The Philadelphia Daily News (http://bit.ly/1f1pofj ) says 24-year-old Steven Miller showed no emotion as jurors announced the verdict Monday in the June 2012 murder of 24-year-old Maurice Kimble on the patio of the PYT restaurant.

Miller was also convicted of firearms offenses but acquitted of first-degree murder.

Assistant District Attorney Richard Sax called the defendant "callous" and said he had "no remorse whatsoever" for the shooting, which he said happened after the victim made a pass at a woman Miller knew.

Defense attorney Samuel Stretton, who argued self-defense, said he would seek a sentence of 15 to 30 years.
