    OAKLAND — An Alameda County jury convicted a Bay Area man of murder and conspiracy in the horrific 2016 killing of a 21-year-old sheriff’s Explorer who was lured to an Oakland park under the pretext of a date and stabbed to death. Curtys Taylor, 26, faces life without the possibility of parole in the murder of Karla Ramirez-Segoviano.

Deputy district attorney Allyson Donovan, who prosecuted the case, said during trial that Taylor “hatched and controlled” the plan and spent months obsessing about Rodgers and Ramirez-Segoviano kissing before carrying it...
