Defendant and Appellant.)Super. Ct. No. A560682
Prentice Juan Snow was convicted in 1990 in Los Angeles County Superior Court of the first degree murder of Alfred J. Koll. (Pen. Code, § 187; all further statutory references are to this code unless otherwise specified.) The jury also sustained a special circumstance allegation that defendant intentionally killed Koll to prevent his testimony in another criminal proceeding (§ 190.2, subd. (a)(10)) and an allegation that defendant personally used a firearm in the commission of the murder (§ 12022.5). The jury set the penalty at death. (§ 190.3.)1 This appeal is automatic. (§ 1239, subd. (b).) We affirm the judgment.
Guilt Phase Evidence: Prosecution
1 Defendant was previously convicted and sentenced to death on the same charges. We reversed the earlier judgment in People v. Snow (1987) 44 Cal.3d 216, because of the prosecutor’s misuse of peremptory challenges in jury selection.
