CASE: Fabian Pozos
PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Darren Goodman
District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert announced today that 23-year-old Fabian Pozos was convicted by jury of first-degree murder and the jury found the use of a knife allegation to be true.
Pozos lived in an apartment next door to Maurice Lynch at a housing facility operated by Volunteers of America. At around midnight on June 21, 2014, Pozos was inside Mr. Lynch’s apartment with other guests. Pozos was being aggressive with a female guest and Mr. Lynch confronted him. After a brief altercation, Pozos threatened to kill Mr. Lynch and other guests before going back to his apartment. Pozos returned with a knife and confronted Mr. Lynch, who was on his way to alert staff at the facility of Pozos’ behavior. Pozos stabbed Mr. Lynch in the chest, puncturing his heart. He died minutes later.
Pozos faces a maximum potential sentence of 26 years to life in prison. Sentencing is set for September 4, 2015 at 9:00 a.m. in Department 22 before the Honorable Russell Hom.
