#CrimeTimeTuesday Law Enforcement Agencies Collaborate and Man is Sentenced to LWOP for 2010 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 choked 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.

In 1992, the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station began as a neighborhood sub-station of the Antelope Valley Sheriff’s Station in a 5,500-square-foot storefront office on the corner of 10th Street East and Palmdale Boulevard. In 1998, the facility was enlarged to 13,500-square-feet and became its own station, no longer under the command of Antelope Valley Sheriff’s Station. Although it obtained full station status, the Palmdale facility lacked several key features needed for operating efficiently including a jail, secure parking, gas pumps, and a heliport. Space at the station was so limited that staff members had to turn sideways to pass each other in the hallways.

In May 2004, construction began on a new station to service the city of Palmdale and the surrounding unincorporated areas. Construction was completed, and the new Palmdale Sheriff’s Station opened its doors on June 12, 2006. The state-of-the-art facility encompasses a 47,000-square-foot main building; a 7,800-square-foot jail; and an 8,399-square-foot motor pool and storage building. The station is located on 11.5 acres at the corner of Sierra Highway and Avenue Q in the City of Palmdale.

The new Palmdale Sheriff’s Station provides an approachable facade and practical floor plan that ensures maximum efficiency and a user-friendly environment for Department personnel and the public alike. The station will accommodate the continued growth and expansion of the community which it proudly serves for years to come.

LASD and Department of Justice – Antelope Valley Settlement Agreement

June 4, 2015

On April 28th, 2015, the United States, the County of Los Angeles, and the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department entered into a Settlement Agreement with the goal of ensuring that police services are delivered to the people of Lancaster and Palmdale, and the surrounding unincorporated areas, in a manner that fully complies with the Constitution and laws of the United States, effectively ensures public and deputy safety, and promotes public confidence in LASD and its deputies.

LASD entered into the agreement because it wishes to ensure that its department is functioning at an exceptional level and that it has positive relationships with all its communities.

Below are the related documents, including the complaint filed by the United States of America against the County of Los Angeles and the full Settlement Agreement.
