Amond was previously convicted of manslaughter for his role in the beating death of a stranger, Marcus Tremaine Deveaux, in 2011.
Amond was sentenced to eight years in prison for what was described as an unprovoked attack on Deveaux, who was found in an Inglewood snowbank in 2010.
He had been beaten for not being able to provide his attackers — Amond and Richard Ceasor — with a cigarette.
