A woman accused for her part in the death of a man earlier this year was convicted in a Bakersfield courtroom Tuesday.

Krystal Wandick, 30, was found guilty of voluntary manslaughter and assault with a firearm. 

It all started on March 17 at a party in the 4200 block of Gordon Street, near Union Avenue. Albert King was standing in the front yard when several shots were fired and he was hit, according to detectives.  A friend drove King to a nearby fire station where he died.

Officials later found out Wandick got in an altercation with King which led to him getting shot and killed.

Police reports state Wandick is a documented member of the gang, the Country Girl Crips. 

Wandick is due back in court on Jan. 19 for her sentencing. She faces anywhere from six to 21 years in prison, according to the prosecutor.
