A Moreno Valley homicide case where gang monikers were common and reluctant witnesses didn't share all they knew finally made it to a deliberating jury on Thursday, Oct. 15, after delays, described as frustrating, included a change in judges and the jury deciding the fate of one defendant instead of two. With instructions from a judge last week not to consider why defendant Romaine Ulyses Martin and his attorneys were no longer in court after a three-week delay, the jury heard the remainder of the evidence against co-defendant Deontray Robinson, 25, of Palm Desert, in the 2011 shooting death of Jerry "JT" Mitchell Jr. in the entryway of his Carnation Lane condo in Moreno Valley.
