• State Supreme Court Will Not Review Triple-Murderer’s Conviction

    LOS ANGELES (CNS) – The California Supreme Court refused today to review
    the case against a man convicted of murdering three people in two separate
    crimes within an hour in the San Gabriel Valley nearly 15 years ago.
    Juan Uitz was convicted of three counts of first-degree murder for the
    Dec. 29, 1997, slayings of Shen Lee, 54, and her son, Rick, 22, who were shot
    to death during a robbery at their Rosemead home, and Linda Hesse, 32, who was
    shot in the head less than an hour later through the windshield of her car in
    Monterey Park.

    Jurors found true the special circumstance allegations of multiple
    murders and murder during the commission of a robbery involving the Lees.
    The murders were connected in 2001, when investigators determined that
    all three bullet fragments from the crimes were fired from the same gun.
    Uitz was arrested in May 2004 and sentenced in May 2010 to three life
    prison terms without the possibility of parole plus 30 years.
    Last December, a three-justice panel from California’s 2nd District
    Court of Appeal rejected Uitz’s claim that there were errors in his trial in
    Pasadena Superior Court.
