Sons of Death Trial begins for gang member charged with killing Richmond girl - San Jose Mercury News

08:14 |

Trial begins for gang member charged with killing Richmond girl - San Jose Mercury News: "They were just girls themselves when their 15-year-old friend was fatally shot in the head through the front door of her family's Richmond home by gunfire intended for a rival -- any rival -- of a violent Asian-American street gang.
Seven years later, at the trial of the man charged with killing her, the now-grown former classmates of Chan Boonkeut sobbed as a photo projected in a Martinez courtroom showed the honor student dead on the living room floor, dressed in a sleep shirt and shorts, a mess of blood surrounding her head.
'We're all here today to support the family and show everyone that this case still matters -- she still matters,' said Chan's childhood friend, 22-year-old Molly Silapasay, one of a dozen young people who watched opening statements in Cuong Dang's trial Thursday. 'It's been a long time coming.'
Dang, 27, was driving his souped-up lime green Honda Civic with four fellow members of a former Asian-American street gang called the Sons of Death on Nov. 4, 2003, when the car was shot up, prosecutor Derek Butts told jurors. The group blamed a rival gang dubbed the Color of Blood, and set off to retaliate. One of them directed Dang to the Boonkeut home on Parkside Drive. Chan's eldest brother was a Color of Blood member and in jail at the time."
