A San Francisco man was convicted of murder and elder abuse in connection with the death of his 79-year-old roommate, a crime partially captured on Zoom.
According to the district attorney’s office, Guan first beat the victim with a baseball bat.
“The beating was partially captured on Zoom and seen by a witness participating in a virtual class with the victim,” the district attorney’s office said.
Guan then set fire to the victim, who was still alive.

“The defendant targeted a vulnerable 79-year-old with a campaign of abuse and harassment culminating in her death,” Assistant District Attorney Leigh Frazier said. “I am pleased the jury has held him accountable for his actions.”
District Attorney Brooke Jenkins called the victim’s death a “horrific and brutal killing.”
Guan faces 25 years to life in behind bars when he is sentenced later this month.
