Mendocino County Man Sentenced to Life in Prison California DOJ Criminalists in Eureka and Redding assisted with this case

UKIAH – On September 8, 2022, Robert Henry Brockway III, 35, formerly of the Albion area along the Mendocino Coast, was sentenced to state prison for 21 years to life.   On August 3, 2022, Brockway pleaded guilty to the second-degree murder of Jimmie Mathis Mooneyham back in October 2020.  Brockway had earlier claimed that he was not guilty of the charges by reason of insanity, but withdrew his original plea and entered guilty pleas while a jury was being picked to hear the evidence.

Brockway also admitted by guilty plea to burglary in the first degree, I which  he admitted entering Mooneyham’s home to commit a felony assault on Mooneyham with a sword.

The law enforcement agencies that investigated the case are the Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office, the Department of Justice crime laboratory in Eureka, the Department of Justice DNA laboratory in Redding, and the District Attorney’s Bureau of Investigations.

“Thank you to the California Department of Justice criminalists who processed evidence in this case to assist with the prosecution of this admitted killer.  Law enforcement and district attorneys’ offices rely on their knowledge and expertise to bring criminal investigations and prosecutions to a conclusion,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.
