Ex-con accused in execution of 3 Pinoys found guilty

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – After three years, a verdict has arrived for the man believed to have shot and killed four people, including three Filipino Americans, at an illegal Northridge, Calif. boarding house.

On Thursday, a jury at a San Fernando court has found Ka Pasasouk guilty of first degree murder for the shooting deaths of Teofilo Navales, Robert Calabia, Amanda Ghossein, and Jennifer Kim.

According to the testimonies, Pasasouk had planned to kill Navales whom he had an altercation with several months before the Dec. 2, 2012 murder. He shot and killed the other three in an attempt to hide witnesses.

Because of the nature of the execution style murders, Pasasouk faces a possible death sentence.

The penalty phase of the hearing is scheduled for next week.

Local authorities have been blamed for failing to protect the public from Pasasouk, who has had a history of violence and drug related cases. He was supposed to be deported to his native Laos, but paperwork had made his deportation orders difficult.

Despite his past offenses, Pasasouk was released from custody and put in a drug diversion program.

    Under the Sanctuary law an illegal migrant can not be deported immediately. Blame the Democrat party for passing the Sanctuary law. There are 300 sanctuary counties in California, it is heaven for criminals.Blame also the local voters for voting the same politicians.
