Gangster guilty of shooting man in back

01:00 |


An Orange gang member sat silently Wednesday as he was convicted of conspiracy, murder and street terrorism for his role in luring a drug dealer to his execution on a residential street in Orange. Robert Louis Reil, 32, is one of four gang members arrested in connection with the Jan. 4, 2010, slaying of Esquivel Bernal Felix, 49, who was shot once in the back as he idled his car on Oak Street in Orange. After he was shot, Felix took his foot off the brake and his sedan bounced off several parked cars before it crashed into some bushes in a front yard on Walnut Street. Deputy District Attorney Larry Yellin argued that Felix was lured to the neighborhood by Amour Villamar, 31, Reil's girlfriend, with a ruse that she intended to buy drugs from him. But instead, Reil and co-defendants Joseph Baez, 27, and Christian Galindo, 26, waited in the darkness. Baez sneaked up on Felix and shot him once in the back, according to police. The would-be robbers fled from the scene without getting Felix' drug stash. Galindo pleaded guilty earlier this year to lesser charges and was sentenced to 12 years in prison. Villamar's case is pending. Baez is scheduled to be tried later this year. Reil, who was also convicted of the special circumstances of committing a murder during the commission of a robbery, now faces a potential life term in prison without the possibility of parole at his sentencing by Superior Court Judge Daniel McNerney on May 11. Felix's wife and three daughters watched the verdict from the courtroom gallery.
