Two More Charged With Murder Outside a Church

Filed under: Los Angeles Criminal attorney — fayarfa @ 7:01 am

LOS ANGELES – Two more reputed gang members, including the alleged shooter and a woman who allegedly drove the getaway car, are scheduled to be arraigned today on murder and other charges in connection with a Nov. 4 fatal shooting outside a Westlake district church, the District Attorney’s Office announced.

Pedro Martinez, 24 (dob 1-24-89), the suspected shooter, and Ivy Navarrete, 31 (dob 11-14-81), are due at the Criminal Justice Center, Department 30, today for arraignment in case BA404685.

The two reputed gang members are charged with the murder of 25-year-old Andres Ordonez and the attempted murder of a second male church member. A third man was fired at, but not hit. The shooting occurred at 3001 West Beverly Blvd. about 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 4, 2012.

The incident began when a third reputed gang member, Janeth Lopez, 22, was allegedly spray-painting red graffiti on the walls of the Iglesia de Paz church. When two church members emerged and tried to stop her, Martinez allegedly got out of his car and opened fire, killing Ordonez and wounding a second male.                                                 

Martinez then hopped back in the car as Navarrete drove away, said
Deputy District Attorney Andrew Cooper with the Hardcore Gang Division.

All three defendants are charged in the amended complaint with one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder and one misdemeanor count of vandalism. The complaint includes gun and gang allegations.

Lopez, who was charged Nov. 13 and pleaded not guilty, returns to court Feb. 19 to set a date for her preliminary hearing. If convicted, all three face up to life in prison.
