Oakland woman jailed regarding engineer’s death

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP)

A woman will spend nearly 16 years in prison for her role in the fatal shooting of a Virginia man visiting the San Francisco Bay area for a job interview at Google Inc.

The Oakland Tribune reports that 36-year-old Althea Housley was sentenced Tuesday in Alameda County Superior Court as an accomplice in the death of Jinghong Kang in July 2010.

As part of a plea deal, Housley testified that her ex-boyfriend, 26-year-old George Huggins, fired the shots that killed Kang in downtown Oakland after they robbed Kang of $10, a credit card and a GPS device.

The 45-year-old Kang was visiting from Fairfax, Va. for a job interview at Google.

Huggins was convicted of first-degree murder in March and he faces life in prison without the possibility of parole.
