Gang member gets death penalty in murder-for-hire case | murder, martinez, montemayor - News - The Orange County Register: "Pacoima gang member sat silently without any outward sign of emotion Tuesday as an Orange County jury gave him the death penalty for his role in the kidnap and murder of a Buena Park businessman nearly eight years ago.
The 10-woman, two-man jury decided that Alberto Martinez, 32, deserves to die for acting as the getaway driver after David Montemayor, 44, was gunned down on a street not far from his home when he tried to escape from his kidnappers.Martinez was convicted by the same jury earlier this month of first-degree murder plus several special circumstances – including murder for financial gain, murder during a kidnapping and murder for the benefit of his street gang.
Those findings set the stage for the penalty phase, where the jury's only decision was whether to impose death or life without parole.
Martinez will be sentenced Aug. 6 by Superior Court Judge Francisco Briseno."
