#LASD #CrimeTimeTuesday @CountyofLA Law Enforcement Agencies Collaborate: Man is Sentenced to LIFE for Violent Home Invasion Murders
 
#LASD, @HawthornePD, and @LAPDHQ investigated the brutal murders and home robberies of Hanna Marcos, Denice Roberts, and Leamon & Robyn Turnage between September 2010 and October 2010.  

John Wesley Ewell, a 62 year-old man pled no contest to four counts of first-degree murder and four counts of first-degree residential robbery in a negotiated plea agreement, which included admitting special circumstance allegation of murder during a residential robbery.  He was sentenced to life in state prison without the possibility of parole.    

September 24, 2010, Suspect Ewell broke into the Hawthorne home of 80 year-old Hanna Marcos.  Before he robbed her home, Ewell strangled and hit Ms. Marcos, causing her to have a heart attack resulting in her death.  

October 13, 2010, Ewell broke into, 53 year-old, Denice Roberts Los Angeles home and strangled her to death during the robbery.  

October 22, 2010, Ewell broke into the Hawthorne home of 69 year-old Leamon Turnage, and his 57 year-old wife, Robyn.  He robbed their house and then killed the couple by hitting and strangling them.  They were found bound.  

Detectives conducted an intensive investigation and doggedly followed all leads and John Wesley Ewell was taken into custody without incident.  Thanks to the combined effort and teamwork of the involved agencies, this dangerous suspect will no longer be able to violently victimize innocent members of society.

Kill him in the same manner he killed his victims. I personally have no interest or money for that matter to pay for shit stains like this to live.

our governor will probably let him go free like the other violent criminals in Calif.

Great.
