Merced County jury finds Choate guilty of murdering Fremont handyman

A jury convicted 33-year-old Jerry Dale Choate of first-degree murder Friday morning in the slaying of a Fremont handyman during a robbery at the Merced house the victim was renovating. It took Merced County jurors less than a day to convict Choate of slaying Richard Mora, 51. The victim was bludgeoned to death with an ax handle in the summer of 2010 at the house on 326 W. 20th St.
