Ex-felon charged with murdering man

OAKLAND (BCN) — A man who has four prior felony convictions has been charged with
murder for allegedly using a crowbar to kill a man inside his apartment in
East Oakland last Thursday morning, prosecutors said.
Aaron Tingle, 32, was arraigned Monday on the charge that he
murdered 51-year-old Anthony Kalaote at his apartment in the 1600 block of
82nd Avenue and was scheduled to return to court today to be assigned an
attorney and possibly enter a plea.
Oakland police said officers who responded to a report of a trauma
victim found Kalaote at his apartment at about 11 a.m. last Thursday. He was
unconscious, not breathing and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Sgt. Eric Milina wrote in a probable cause statement that a
witness told police that Tingle struck Kalaote in the head with a crowbar.
Tingle, who lives in the 9700 block of MacArthur Boulevard, about
a mile away from Kalaote’s apartment, was arrested at the scene, according to
Alameda County prosecutors allege that Tingle has prior
convictions for assault with a deadly weapon, first-degree robbery of a
transit operator, selling drugs and possession of a firearm by a felon.
The offenses occurred between 2002 and 2011, prosecutors said.
