Since December 20th, the homeless community has been told to be vigilant as more and more men were stabbed in Orange County. On Friday, January 13th, the murder of a man in his sixties brought the death toll to four. The Anaheim man was found in a trash bin outside a Carl's Jr. before 9 p.m. that evening. Witnesses saw a man fleeing the scene and were able to lead police to a 23-year-old who authorities now believe to be responsible for all four murders.
Murder is one of the most serious crimes in the California penal code. Under section 190, murder of the first degree will be punished by the death sentence, life imprisonment without the possibility of parole, or twenty-five years in prison. In order to avoid these harsh penalties, it is important that anyone facing these charges be represented by a strong legal representative.
