His appeal was shot down...
The man who killed Dave Navarro's mother in 1983 along with another woman had his life sentence upheld by the California state appeals court on Thursday. Billboard reports that the court has heard the appeal of John Riccardi, who was convicted of killing Connie Navarro and her friend Sue Jory in 1983 in Los Angeles, and affirmed the sentence of life without parole.
Riccardi was Connie Navarro's estranged boyfriend at the time of the murders; Dave was fifteen at the time of the crime. Riccardi was originally sentenced to death but that was overturned by the California Supreme Court two years ago. He was resentenced last year to life without parole.
