A 34-year-old man was convicted of 26 felony counts in connection with the 2008 murder of a woman in SW D.C.

AD.C. Superior Court jury convicted Roderick Ridley, of the District, on June 3 of multiple counts of felony threats, contempt, first degree buerglary and other charges. But the jury didn’t convict of felony murder, premeditated murder and another count of threats stemming from the killing of 33-year-old Tiffany Gates.

He faces a retrial on those charges.

Authorities said Ridley stabbed Gates to death because of a domestic situation.
