Back on September 17, 2015, Cameron Brown was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole for first degree murder in the death of his 4 year old daughter, Lauren Sarene Key. After three trials spanning over nine years, a jury found Brown guilty of throwing Lauren off a 120 ft cliff in Rancho Palos Verdes on November 8, 2000. They also found true the special allegations of lying in wait and murder for financial gain. Deputy District Attorney Craig Hum prosecuted all three trials.
Brown's appeal is slowly winding through the California Courts of Appeal. Below is a screen shot of the docket for Brown's appeal. As you can see, his appeal was logged October 7, 2015 and his attorney, John Steinberg was appointed December 28, 2015. Brown's opening brief is due by March 21, 2016.
