• Westlake Man Convicted of Pasadena Instructor’s Death


    VAN NUYS (CNS) – A Westlake Village man was convicted today of voluntary
    manslaughter for the shooting death of a longtime instructor from Pasadena‘s
    Art Center College of Design at a Persian new year’s party in March 2010.
    The Van Nuys Superior Court jury also found true a gun-use allegation
    against Steven Ronald Honma for the March 20, 2010, killing of Norman Schureman
    of Altadena.
    Jurors acquitted Honma of first-degree murder and second-degree murder,
    according to defense attorney Dmitry Gorin.
    Schureman was shot once while at a party at his mother-in-law’s Westlake
    Village home. The 50-year-old Altadena father of two died hours later at
    Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.
    Honma — who was a neighbor of Schureman’s mother-in-law — was involved
    in a struggle after returning with two guns to the party he and his wife had
    left earlier, authorities said.
    Honma suffered head trauma and facial fractures during the struggle,
    according to Gorin.
    The defense contended that Honma, an engineer, had no intent to hurt
    anyone and that the gun went off accidentally after he was confronted.
    Honma is facing up to 21 years behind bars, with sentencing set for Jan.
    4.
