How gruesome. Wondering what the motives were...money (i.e. delinquent back-pay, a raise request denied), threat of deportation. Could have been anything and there was obvious full-blown anger involved given the forensic report.

There will be complications in this proceeding due to the language barrier...court translators and deposition interpreters required. The CAA (court-appointed attorney) will have his hands full in getting the full story and in trying to lessen the charge(s).

Curious...why does it always take so long for these kinds of crimes to go to court...especially in CA? Language issues aside, what ever happened to the concept of a fair and speedy trial as per the US Constitution?

In states such as Texas, they don't dilly-dally with court proceedings or the carrying out of the sentence.
