A California couple died because man mistook woman for his ex, prosecutors say
A California man accused of killing a couple after mistaking the woman for his ex-girlfriend will spend the rest of his life in prison, Orange County prosecutors reported. A judge on Friday, June 3, sentenced James Rayon Buggs, 47, of Huntington Beach, to two consecutive life terms without parole plus 54 years to life in prison in the 2019 slayings, an Orange County District Attorney’s Office news release said. A jury deliberated for “just hours” before convicting Buggs last month, according to the release. He was found guilty of two counts of first-degree murder, among other charges.
