• Jurors began deliberating today in the trial of an admitted con man accused of killing a San Marino resident and burying his remains in the victim’s backyard 28 years ago.

    The Los Angeles Superior Court jury was handed the case against Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter, who once passed himself off as a member of the wealthy Rockefeller family, after Deputy District Attorney Habib Balian urged the panel to convict the 52-year-old defendant of murdering John Sohus in February 1985.

    Prosecutors told jurors on Monday that circumstantial and physical evidence prove a German citizen who went by a number of aliases and later passed himself off as a member of the Rockefeller family murdered the son of his San Marino landlord 28 years ago.
