Man Convicted Of 3 Murders May Face Death Sentence

Oct 9, 2007 | Posted by: CBS 2 - KCAL 9 | Full story: CBS 2 - KCAL 9

An aspiring gang member was convicted Tuesday of murdering two people at a Montebello warehouse and killing a prospective witness against him a week later as she begged for her life in a South Gate alley.

The Los Angeles Superior Court jury is due back in court Wednesday afternoon for the start of the trial's penalty phase, in which they will be asked to recommend whether 22-year-old Juan Jose Chavez should be sentenced to death or life in prison without the possibility of parole.

The panel found Chavez guilty of first-degree murder for the shooting deaths of Lynda McGeisey and Abdon Sandoval on May 31, 2004, and Risa Bejarano, who was slain six days later. Read more

This dude smiled at the parents of the 13 year old little girl he shot in cold blood. He doesn't deserve to be fed by our tax dollars. They should not allow him an appeal considering he kills witnesses and committed a murder based on a little girls race. Too bad California doesnt Still use a firing squad

The whole ordeal makes me sad.Whoever killed that sweet girl has made people very said.I dont know but it looks like he did it.I was surprised that I cried since I dont even know her.I think because they put out the documentary and it personalized her for me.So much going for herself only to have her life snuffed out like that?Did someone say that she knew this guy?Anyway,I feel for his family too because they love him and now he's on deathrow.You've got 3 families who are suffering now because of this.So sad.

Punk trick stop talking your shit, there's only few people out there who really new Juan Chavez and what his life was really about, so for any of you out there to judge this man he was a kid then w/ bad guidance in his life. It was wrong what he did but I'm SURE he was a loving/kind Friend, Son and Brother.
dats not are fault he was a lame like u and trust what komes around goes aroud lol punking yo homie from you lame hood

I knew this man personally. This is because of the fact that he is my cousin. Yes, I completely agree with the fact that he deserves justice and was a guilty criminal with bad guidance, but we are not God or a higher power. How is it that we are allowed to condem persons to death? Also, people need torealize that this character, Risa, is no angel, as she was portayed. She dropped out of CSUB, struggled with drug addiction, and was even gang affiliated. In fact she was involved with two rival gangs, including Johns, and knew the consequences of her actions. Hard to believe the courts turned a blind eye to all of this. Did anyone not pay attention to the content of her clothing at the time of death. My cousin could never have murdered the innocent girl presented in the court room. Regardless, I'm not here to defend his actions, I agree with him staying in jail for life. His actions were hanous, but we cannot condemn someone to death.

i'm sorry but i couldn't help but read ur comment! i knew risa, not soo much but new enough. i used to kick it with her, because her sister new my ex husband quite well. i have to say that just because she was in bad steps (or as you say no angel) which i believe no one here living on this earth that are adults are angels in anyway, doesn't mean that its ok for her to be the scapegoat in your cousin's hanous actions. yes she was probably in bad steps, but best believe she wasn't no murderer like your cousin. also i know the other person he shot, and that was my brother-in-law, and that i can garantee you that he was not affiliated with no gang whats so ever.

i agree "OH-please"reason why is because she was my older sister, n the reason why she was in that outfit u mention was due to someone she new really good called her that day close to midnigght while her being at our apartments to meet up with her...obiosly he had all this planned out..that day she died was my oldest sisters birthday,"what a present" but u know what infact she was the closes thing to an angel!!! the reason she waas kicked out of sbu,was cuz she had a traumatic anxiaty attack nothing to due with drugs..n if she did drugs was because she needed to stay up when she had a late night shift,but what u u know,you just b assuming shit when yall dont know the facts..and she waas no gang member,i so vividly rremember the owner of the fabric were the first incident happend, i actually went there more than once..and i wonder how is it that victor only got shot on his leg???that dont seem right from my point of view

You all have no idea what this child went through in his life he was a victim of his environment. He too was robbed of his life. He didnít choose to be born to mother who was nothing but self-involved. She had 5 children from 5 different fathers, was on welfare, and continues to this day to only worry about herself. He didnít have a chance. His life was about trying to make it and sought out love and acceptance from the wrong people. His actions were horrible and he will die for them. He will forever remain in my prayers and I ask God to forgive him. God is merciful. Juan Jose Chavez does not deserve so much hate. He deserves a little sympathy because he was born to a selfish mother who never cared about her children.

Please! Before you post anything else use spell check! You sound so ignorant! You must have attended Downey high just like Juan Chavez! Go get an education and a job and then speak!
