OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say two men are in custody for the shooting death of a pet sitter who used her cellphone to record them during an apparent burglary in Oakland last year.

Alameda County prosecutors on Thursday announced that 22-year-old Stephon Lee of Richmond and 21-year-old Mario Floyd of Oakland face murder charges with special circumstances for the slaying of Judy Salamon just a few blocks from her home on July 24.

Police say the men allegedly argued with the 66-year-old Salamon over her cellphone before Lee shot her. Salamon who was driving, lost control of her car, which rolled down a hill before crashing into a parked car.

Neighbors say Salamon was an avid animal lover known as the “Pet Nanny,” because of her affinity for taking care of neighborhood pets.
