#CrimeTimeTuesday #LASD Homicide Bureau Detectives and LA District Attorney’s Office Collaboration Leads to Conviction, 40 year Prison Sentence 

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau Detectives investigated the shooting death of a woman, and the wounding of a man that were discovered Saturday, July 1, 2017. The victim’s ex-husband was arrested sentenced to 40 years to life in state prison for the crime.

On Monday, August 12, 2019, 41 year-old Efrem Ruben Lozoya of Pico Rivera was sentenced to 40 years to life in state prison for killing his ex-wife and wounding and paralyzing her boyfriend after pleading guilty last month.

On Saturday, July 1, 2017 suspect Efrem Lozoya was dropping off their 7 year-old daughter at the victim’s apartment in the 13900 block of Coteau Drive, unincorporated Whittier. 
Their 9 year-old son had opened the door for suspect Lozoya and allowed him entry. Once inside the apartment, Lozoya stormed into the bedroom where the victims, his ex-wife and her boyfriend, were located.  Suspect Lozoya shot both of them.

The children, upon hearing the gun shots, ran to a neighbor’s residence.
Suspect Lozoya fled from the apartment right after the shooting.

Norwalk deputies received a call for shots fired, and upon arrival found the victims, Nereida Villanueva, 33, dead and her boyfriend, a Male Hispanic, suffering from a gunshot wound to the upper torso.
Homicide detectives were summoned to the scene to investigate the murder and attempted murder.
After several hours the suspect turned himself in.

Two years after the crime, Efrem Loyoza pleaded guilty in court to one count each of second-degree murder and attempted murder, and also admitted to intentionally discharging a handgun which caused great bodily injury and death.

Loyoza was subsequently sentenced to 40 years to life in state prison.
Deputy District Attorney Araceli Otero prosecuted the case.

Avalon Sheriff's Station

#BearGoesEverywhere visited the Security Staff of the Hall of Justice in Downtown Los Angeles.

The Hall of Justice was built in 1925 and opened for business in 1926.

The Hall of Justice is the oldest surviving government building in the Los Angeles Civic Center, that collection of city, county and federal buildings stretching for several blocks along Temple and First Streets in downtown Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors authorized construction of the building to consolidate the County’s courts, jail facilities as well as the coroner’s office in one location.

The result was a beautiful new facility housing all levels of the county criminal justice system.

The Hall of Justice played a significant role in the criminal justice history of Los Angeles, housing such notable arrestees as “Bugsy” Siegel, Robert Mitchum, Charles Manson, and Sirhan Sirhan. The autopsies of Marilyn Monroe and Robert Kennedy were also conducted there.

For many years, the Hall of Justice was in fact an open building, with no security at any entry/exit points. Due to many violent incidents for all county buildings, a security team was formed, which is now part of the County Services Division.

The County Services Division is in charge of security at all County courthouses.

Security officers, under the supervision of a Sheriff peace officer supervisor, staff the metal detectors at courthouse entrances and provide general security for the court complex.

The Hall of Justice building is staffed by 17 security officers and three security assistants, each one of them serving as an outstanding key part of our building security.

Until next time, everyone stay safe and look out for the Bear in your city. #LASD
