LOS ANGELES – A Los Angeles jury was deadlocked on the death penalty punishment of alleged gang member, Charles Ray Smith, 41, who was found guilty of four murders in May. Three of those murders were related to a triple murder that occurred in South Los Angeles on 49th Street east of Central Avenue.

Although the jurors convicted Smith of the murders they could not find his co-defendant Charles Moore guilty, even though, Alicia Merceron, the prosecution’s star witness put both men at the scene of the crime. Merceron admitted to participating as a driver in several murders and in exchange for her testimony, she received a seven year sentence in prison. The triple murder, according to prosecutors, was an attempted hit on the East Side Trece gang, a neighborhood that had been feuding with the 30s Piru Bloods for several months. The three killed were not part of any gang, and further more, East Side Trece was not known to associate in that area.

Moore is expected to go back on trial a third time this fall.
