Kevin Johnson, 47, was arraigned today on murder, burglary and promoting prostitution charges in the October 2016 murder of Kimberly Rhoades, 47.
He originally faced a lesser manslaughter charge — accusing him of attempting to seriously injure the victim, but not of trying to kill her.
A grand jury indicted Johnson for murder anyway because he allegedly broke into Rhoades’ apartment first, enhancing the charge, Senior Assistant District Attorney Jeremy Cali said.
That means Johnson could face up to 25 years to life in prison if convicted. He had faced a maximum of 25 years when charged only with manslaughter.
Johnson was incensed because Rhoades — who was apparently working for him as a prostitute — owed him money, Cali said after court.
Johnson broke into the victim’s Eureka Street residence at night and punched her repeatedly in the face, Cali said. He also slammed her head into a concrete floor, Cali said.
Rhoades died a day later from severe bleeding on the brain, police said.
“It’s really the worst form of human trafficking,” Cali said of the crime. (Prostitution is now considered by authorities to be a form of human trafficking.)
Johnson provided a statement to police, though it’s unclear what he said.
Today, Judge Stephen Dougherty read a plea offer into the record: if Johnson pleaded guilty to murder, he’d get 20 years to life in prison.
There was no indication whether Johnson was interested in that offer. He remains in jail until his next court date March 22.
Johnson’s record includes three stints in state prison on drug convictions.
