In May, a Riverside County jury found Angela Shaver guilty of first-degree murder. The victim, Paul Cline, then 60 and a resident of Old Cary Road in Anza, was found dead in March 2006.
On Aug. 17, the court sentenced Shaver to 25 years to life in state prison for Cline’s murder. The court added two more years to its murder sentence because the jury found enhancements — the use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony.
However, the judge had to grant Shaver credit for time she spent in jail since her arrest as part of the final sentencing. Those 2,341 days amount to about 6 years and 5 months.
On the evening of March 21, 2006, investigators from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Hemet Station responded to reports of a theft at Cline’s residence and served a search warrant at the residence.
During the search, evidence supported the search warrant for theft and indicated that Cline had been the victim of murder. Cline’s body was found during a nightlong investigation of his home and a nearby hillside north of Bautista Road in Anza.
