Defendant, a member of the Crips street gang, was found guilty by a jury of the first degree murders of Perry Coder and Gregory Martin and two counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The jury also found true the allegation that defendant personally used a firearm in the commission of the murders and the multiple-murder special-circumstance allegation. After a penalty trial, the jury returned a verdict of death. On automatic appeal, the court addressed numerous pretrial issues, guilt phase issues, and penalty phase issues and subsequently affirmed the judgment.
