Sounds about right.  Or, at least, they're saying that if the autopsy
shows no clear evidence (of premeditation) to support the current
conviction, his sentence would be reduced.

California Penal Code section 189:

   All murder which is perpetrated by means of a destructive
   device or explosive, a weapon of mass destruction, knowing use of
   ammunition designed primarily to penetrate metal or armor, poison,
   lying in wait, torture, or by any other kind of willful, deliberate,
   and premeditated killing, or which is committed in the perpetration
   of, or attempt to perpetrate, arson, rape, carjacking, robbery,
   burglary, mayhem, kidnapping, train wrecking, or any act punishable
   under Section 206, 286, 288, 288a, or 289, or any murder which is
   perpetrated by means of discharging a firearm from a motor vehicle,
   intentionally at another person outside of the vehicle with the
   intent to inflict death, is murder of the first degree.  All other
   kinds of murders are of the second degree.

Sounds like justice would be done, too.  

Poor Rory and Niorlene (not to mention Irina Sharanova).
