Yim killed 25-year-old Dzuy Duhn Phan after a night of partying and playing video games. Another friend, Paul Park, testified the two men had engaged in a heated discussion about God.
Yim became enraged and grabbed his gun after Phan asked Yim where God was when Yim’s father died of a stroke several years earlier.
Yim shot Phan at least six times. Park was also hit by a bullet.READ MORE: Hope, Skepticism: Oaklanders Share Of Feelings About Guilty Verdict In George Floyd Murder Trial
