Ka Pasasouk, from his Facebook Page
November 20, 2015
Yesterday, the LA County District Attorney reported that a jury deliberated less than two ours before convicting Ka Pasasouk, 34 of gunning down four people just outside a Northridge, California boarding house two years ago. Deputy DA Daniel Akemon who prosecuted the case said the killing spree began as a robbery.
Pasasouk was found guilty of gunning down Teofilo Navales, Robert Calabia, Amanda Ghossein and Jennifer Kim on Dec. 2, 2012. Jurors found the special circumstance of multiple murders to be true. Pasasouk also was convicted of one count of attempted murder, five counts of assault with a semiautomatic firearm and possession of a firearm by a felon.
Exactly three years after the quadruple murders, jurors will return on December 2, to hear testimony in the penalty phase of the trial. Pasasouk is facing the death penalty.
I attended Pasasouk's preliminary hearing at the San Fernando Courthouse in July 2013. It appeared that several of the witnesses were afraid to testify about what they heard and experienced.
