Jury Convicts Canyon Country Man Of Murder

A Canyon Country man is facing the rest of his life in prison after he was convicted of murder Wednesday in the shooting death of his neighbor.

Lennie Tracey, 51, of Canyon Country, faces a sentence of 50 years to life at his Jan. 11 sentencing, officials said. Under California sentencing guidelines, he is required to serve at least 85 percent of his sentence.  

Anthony Davis, 51, of Canyon Country, walked over to his neighbor’s house in the 27900 block of Calypso Lane at 3 a.m. on Sept. 24, 2011, to pursue an ongoing dispute. After an argument, Tracey shot Davis in the upper torso.

“(The jury) convicted (Tracey) of one count of first degree murder, and the jurors found that he personally and intentionally discharged the firearm that killed his neighbor,” according to Sandi Gibbons, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

 “They also convicted Tracey of assault with a firearm, against (his neighbor’s wife),” Gibbons said.

Local deputies responded to calls of an assault with a deadly weapon back in September of 2011 and found Davis lying on the ground outside of a house, with a gunshot wound. Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.

Calypso Lane is located off of Ermine Street in an otherwise quiet, tree-lined neighborhood of single-family homes.

Court records show Lennie Tracey’s only criminal history in Los Angeles County was a DUI conviction in 1997.
