The adult male victim was taken to VCMC with life-threatening gunshot wounds.
An earlier charge of forcible rape was dropped and replaced with unlawful sex by fraud or fear.
The tragedy happened as the mother and her daughter and a neighbor boy were crossing Cooper Road in a crosswalk together between Ramona Elementary and Cesar Chavez Elementary Monday morning.
The authorities allege the couple strangled her newborn son in the hospital 12 hours after he was born.
Appeals court says there were no reversal errors in the trial and at the very least her 25-year-to-life sentence stands. They wanted to give the trial judge a chance to reconsider the additional or consecutive 25-years-to-life on the gun enhancement, but he doesn't have to.
There had been a verbal altercation at the party just prior to the Friday night shooting
The victim was conscious when transported to the hospital.
