Man’s trial in 3 slayings begins

first_imgA week later, Chavez ordered Bejarano to get down on her stomach and “fired shot after shot after shot after shot” at her as she pleaded for her life, Sherwood told the jury. Bejarano had taken Chavez to the warehouse the night before the shooting, and Chavez told two people that he believed the woman was a “snitch,” the prosecutor said. Chavez’s attorney suggested that the prosecutor showed jurors a photo of Bejarano’s bloody face to “enrage” them, and urged jurors not to be biased. “Basically these kids were at a meth party when all this went down,” John Hud said of the Montebello warehouse killings, noting that drugs and alcohol can affect witnesses’ ability to recall what happened.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against Chavez. Chavez also faces two counts of attempted murder involving two people wounded at the Montebello warehouse. A second man, Gerardo Cabrera, 26, will be tried separately in connection with the Montebello shootings. Cabrera is not charged in Bejarano’s killing, and is not facing a death sentence if convicted. Deputy District Attorney Robert Sherwood told the six-man, six-woman jury that Chavez and Cabrera went to the warehouse to try to find a rival gang member who had yelled out his gang name as he left their Paramount neighborhood. Chavez asked where the rival gang member was once he got inside the warehouse, but didn’t wait for a response before opening fire, according to the prosecutor. LOS ANGELES – An aspiring gang member shot and killed two people in a Montebello warehouse and murdered a prospective witness in a South Gate alley a week later as she begged for her life, a prosecutor told jurors Tuesday. But in his opening statement, a defense attorney told the Los Angeles Superior Court jury hearing the case against Juan Jose Chavez that there were reasons for key prosecution witnesses to lie to authorities about what they had seen and heard. Chavez, now 22, is charged with the May 31, 2004, slayings of Lynda McGeisey and Abdon Sandoval, and the June 6, 2004, shooting death of Risa Bejarano. The murder charges include special circumstance allegations of multiple murders, murder to further the activities of a criminal street gang and murder of a witness to a crime. last_img read more
