Three Alleged Gang Members Charged in Pasadena Robbery-Murder

Filed under: California Defense Attorney — Tags: , — fayarfa @ 8:26 pm

PASADENA – Capital murder charges were filed by the District Attorney’s office today in the Jan. 15 robbery-murder of a 21-year-old Pasadena man.

Deputy District Attorney Stefan Mrakich of the Hardcore Gang Division said the two defendants appeared for arraignment today, but the hearing was put over until Feb. 7 in Department N, Pasadena Superior Court. They are: Peter Parra, 35 (dob 4-5-1977), and Kevin Jessie Cabrera, 25 (dob 7-30-1987). A warrant was issued for the arrest of the third defendant.

All defendants were charged with the Jan. 15 murder of Zane Goldstein, who authorities said had driven to an apartment complex in Pasadena with his older brother. As they were driving away, police said, Zane Goldstein was shot to death.

Parra and the others were charged in case No. GA 088733 with one count of murder with the special circumstance of robbery murder with a street gang enhancement. Although filed as a capital case, a decision will not be made on whether to seek the death penalty until after the defendants are ordered to stand trial.

The defendants also were charged with one count of attempted second-degree robbery with the allegation that it was a gang crime. In addition, it was alleged that a principal fired the murder weapon, a shotgun.

The two defendants who appeared in court were arrested by Pasadena police this week.

  2. The Winky Frowny is easily the most poorly well-known emoticon on the Internets. It really is presumably used to signify disappointment, with some sarcasm, bitterness, and also sense of humor.
