In early 2013, David Quevedo became angry after his San Francisco 49ers lost to the Baltimore Ravens in the Super Bowl. He soon got in a fight involving Omar Silva, who lived in the area, and the altercation turned deadly hours later when Quevedo shot Silva multiple times.
Silva didn’t make it. His final words were “Jehovah, Jehovah, I’m dying, I’m dying.”
Now, the question of whether Quevedo will be convicted of first-degree murder — and face life in prison — hinges on whether Silva could have survived had he just accepted a blood transfusion, something forbidden by his faith.
