On Thursday, Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón announced that Aariel Maynor pleaded guilty to killing Jacqueline Avant in December of 2021.
According to the press release, Maynor “entered an open plea to one count each of first-degree murder, attempted murder and possession of a firearm by a felon as well as two counts of first-degree residential burglary with person present. He also admitted an allegation that he used an assault long barrel pistol during the crimes.”
“This crime continues to shock the conscience. Mrs. Avant’s death was a tragic loss felt by our entire community,” District Attorney Gascón said. “In this case, the defendant is facing 170 years to life in prison and is ineligible for elderly parole. Our Bureau of Victim Services will continue to be in contact with the family and their representatives to offer trauma-informed services.”
Maynor is set to be sentenced on March 30th.
