Placer County Jury Convicts Man of M*rdering Father in Roseville Stabbing

On Thursday, a Placer County jury found a man guilty of first-degree murder for stabbing his 62-year-old father to death in his Roseville home two years ago.

The Placer County District Attorney’s Office said in a news statement on Friday that James Shade, 32, of Paradise was found guilty of the death of his father, Larry Shade. The trial took three weeks.

On March 14, 2021, at about 5:45 p.m., police from the Roseville Police Department went to the father’s house on Hanisch Drive. Prosecutors said that after the subject was found dead from what seemed to be a stabbing, a 911 call was made to the police.

Police said at the time that they sent a SWAT team to a house on Hanisch Drive and locked down the area while they tried to find a suspect who they thought was inside. After about five hours, SWAT police went into the house and found that no one was there. About an hour later, the neighborhood was no longer told to stay inside.

Documents found at the father’s house had the defendant’s name on them and showed that the stabbing suspect was the victim’s son, the prosecutors said.

The District Attorney’s Office says that video from a security camera shows James Shade’s car leaving the house. Four days later, the son’s house in Paradise was searched by police from Roseville.

James Shade was still being held at the Placer County Jail on Friday afternoon. On June 16, he will go back to Placer Superior Court to hear his sentence.
