California Supreme Court won't review mom's appeal in murder of teenage son's gang rival


LOS ANGELES — The California Supreme Court has refused to hear the appeal of a woman who was convicted of murder for driving her teenage son and his friends to a Long Beach park where they stabbed a 13-year-old gang rival.

City News Service reported Wednesday that the state's highest court has declined to review Eva Daley's 2013 conviction. She's serving 15 years to life.

Joe Cano was killed in 2007. Seven other people, including Daley's son, were convicted or pleaded guilty in connection with the crime.

Prosecutors say Daley drove her 14-year-old son to the park for revenge against Cano, who'd stabbed the boy six months earlier.

Daley has said she used poor judgment in driving the teens to the confrontation but didn't think it would end in Cano's death.
