Bailey is reportedly the ex‐boyfriend of the deceased female victim.

Friday, Bailey was found guilty on counts of Involuntary Manslaughter, Felonious Assault, Tampering With Evidence.

The manslaughter and felonious assault counts carry a mandatory 3‐year firearm specification because the defendant used a firearm during the commission of his crimes.
