    MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) — In an effort to avoid a life sentence, a woman accused of participating in the machete killing of a South Florida teen almost seven years ago is ready to take a plea deal, according to her attorney. Desiray Strickland was 19 when she and four others were arrested following the June 2015 death of 17-year-old Jose Amaya Guardado. Police said he was hacked to death and buried in a shallow grave in Homestead.

This week, Strickland’s attorney told Circuit Judge Cristina Miranda that she plans to plead guilty to conspiracy to murder, which could send her to prison for 15 years, according to CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald. The next hearing in the case is scheduled for late June. Strickland remains in jail. Strickland and four others were indicted by a grand jury on first-degree murder charges. Prosecutors said they killed Guardado, who was...
    A retired judge appointed to hold a public examination of the death of Andres Guardado, an 18-year-old man killed during an encounter with Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies, said Friday that she had concluded the inquest without hearing testimony from the deputy who fired the fatal shots or the sheriff’s detectives investigating the case, all of whom invoked their 5th Amendment rights and refused to answer questions. The inquest, a rare proceeding that hadn’t been held in the county in nearly 30 years, was intended to present an “independent assessment” of the findings of Guardado’s death and the evidence used to arrive at them, the county’s chief medical examiner-coroner, Dr. Jonathan Lucas, said when it was announced. But what the hearing officer, retired Court of Appeals Judge Candace Cooper, presented as her findings Friday was remarkably bereft of new information. Cooper determined that Guardado died June 18, that he died in a driveway off Redondo Beach Boulevard in Gardena, that the medical cause of death was multiple gunshot wounds and that the manner of death was “by the hands of...
    An inquest concerning the death of Andres Guardado, who was killed in a June encounter with sheriff’s deputies near Gardena, was continued after the presiding hearing officer said Monday, Nov. 30, she needed to review sealed documents to see if other witness testimony was warranted. The review, the first of its kind in the county in more than 30 years, was held in the Kenneth Hahn Hall of Justice in downtown Los Angeles and included testimony from coroner’s officials, two firefighters, a forensic pathologist and a multimedia journalist. Officials with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, including the two deputies involved in the shooting of Guardado, did not testify during Monday’s hearing, with most instead invoking the Fifth Amendment that protects against self-incrimination. It wasn’t clear if the investigation into the shooting by the District Attorney’s Office, a standard procedure for police shootings that determines if any officer broke a law, has been completed. Before 6 p.m. on June 18, the two deputies were on patrol when they spotted Guardado, 18, speaking with someone who was inside a car that...

    Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials said Wednesday that the Gardena auto shop where Andres Guardado was fatally shot five times in the back by a deputy was a crime hot spot, generating 23 calls for service in the last five and a half years. But they said they have no evidence that Guardado, 18, was linked to any of those incidents and failed to describe what prompted Deputy Miguel Vega to shoot him. In a statement, the Guardado family’s attorney said the news briefing, which was billed as an update to the June 18 shooting investigation, “did nothing to explain to the family or the public” why Guardado was shot. “The department’s attempt to convolute and cherry pick the facts to create a narrative that links Andres’ death to previous incidents of crime near the shop is nothing more than an attempt to justify the killing of this young man,” attorney Adam Shea said in a statement. “The Sheriff’s Department has once again failed the Guardado family who were hoping today would be the day for truth in...
    COVINA (CBSLA) — Protesters gathered outside the alleged home of the Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy Miguel Vega who shot and killed Andres Guardado back in June. Sky9 was over the scene Wednesday night where officers from the Covina and Glendora police departments and deputies with LASD responded to the scene. Guardado was shot and killed on June 18 while working as an informal security guard at an auto body shop in Gardena. Investigators said deputies were patrolling the area when they reportedly saw Guardado with a gun and gave chase. Deputies said they ordered the teen to the ground. Once he was on the ground, deputies said he reached for his gun and Vega opened fire. Autopsy reports from the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office and an independent medical examiner found that Guardado was shot in the back five times. The Thursday night protest was declared an unlawful assembly and the protesters left the scene. Video of the demonstration was posted to Facebook.
    COMPTON (CBSLA) — Dozens of protesters gathered in Compton on Sunday to call for the arrest of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department deputy who shot and killed 18-year-old Andres Guardado last month. Guardado was shot in the back five times by Deputy Miguel Vega on June 18 after authorities say they spotted him with a gun and he ran away.

The protest started around noon from East Rancho Dominguez Park to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Compton station.

    Andres Guardado, the 18-year-old who was killed by a sheriff’s deputy last month in a parking lot near Gardena, was shot five times in the back with all of the wounds fatal, according to the official autopsy report released Friday, July 10. The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office’s report shows virtually the same results as those of a separate autopsy performed at the request of the family and publicly released this week. A detective with the Sheriff’s Department told coroner’s officials in a statement that deputies initially spotted Guardado with a weapon in his waistband and that one deputy fired after he saw Guardado allegedly move his hand toward his waistband, according to the coroner’s report. Guardado also sustained two graze wounds to the forearms and did not have any drugs or alcohol in his system at the time of the shooting, according to the official report, which was ceritified on Tuesday, July 7. The report was released Friday, July 10, despite an ongoing request for a security hold by the Sheriff’s Department. “I have given careful consideration to the...
    A demonstrator holds a sign in support of Andrés Guardado, who was shot and killed by an L.A. County Sheriff's deputy last month. An independent autopsy performed at the request of the family of Andrés Guardado has found that the 18-year-old student and part-time security guard was shot in the back five times by a Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy last month, NBC News reports.  Guardado’s family, already frustrated over the lack of answers regarding his killing by police on June 18, requested the independent autopsy after the department put a “security hold” on the L.A. County coroner’s results. “These findings confirm what we have known all along,” his family said according to LAist, “which is that Andrés was unjustifiably killed by a Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy.” “Lawyers for the Guardado family have said that officials’ failure to explain exactly what prompted the shooting has made the family's grieving process that much more difficult,” NBC News said, as well as anger around an allegation by police that he was armed. Police claim they found an unmarked gun at the scene that had not been fired, “leading police to believe that Andres...
    Attorneys representing the family of a Southern California man who was fatally shot by a Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy last month said Wednesday that an independent autopsy found he was shot five times in the back. Andres Guardado, 18, a security guard at an autobody shop, died after he was shot on June 18 in Gardena, setting off a wave of protests amid tense relations between police departments and minority communities nationwide. The attorneys said the autopsy revealed Guardado suffered a graze abrasion to his left forearm with a forward trajectory and did not have alcohol or drugs in his system at the time of his death. They said it proves the shooting was "without a doubt, the result of unjustified police violence against an innocent young man." A lawyer for the family of Andres Guardado, who was killed by a Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy, said Wednesday that an independent autopsy revealed the 18-year-old was shot five times in the back.

    Getty: "Teresa Flores (C), the mother of David Flores, 36, who was fatally shot by Los Angeles police in 2019, is comforted as she speaks while as activists and relatives of Andres Guardado, who was shot and killed by a sheriff's deputy in Gardena" this month. In endorsing police reform legislation named after George Floyd, whose horrific killing at the hands of law enforcement last month has sparked a worldwide movement, Congressional Hispanic Caucus chair Joaquin Castro says the legislation is also important in seeking justice for members of his community: Latinos follow Black Americans in the demographic most violently affected by police violence, The Washington Post reports. "It's not an issue that's associated with Latinos in the same way that it's associated with African American men in particular,” he said according to NPR, “but it has been a real problem for the Latino community throughout the country, particularly in inner city neighborhoods of folks being profiled, folks being killed over the years.” Castro has been among the advocates seeking justice not just for Floyd, but also a number of Latinos brutally killed by police...
    COMPTON (CBSLA) — Nearly two weeks after 18-year-old Andres Guardado was shot and killed by a deputy from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department near Gardena and West Compton, the local community is coming together in his honor. 18-year-old Andres Guardado, pictured, was shot and killed by an LASD deputy on June 18, 2020, in Gardena, California. (Courtesy: Family Photo)   Family, friends and strangers organized a car wash fundraiser for the Guardado family that was expected to run through 8 p.m. on Sunday night. Guardado’s family said the teen was working as a security guard for a local auto body shop when a patrolling deputy spotted Guardado who “ran because he was scared.” Following a short foot chase, a deputy fired at Guardado several times, striking him in the torso and killing him. “It’s something so painful that we don’t wish would happen to anybody,” said Guardado’s uncle Noe Abarca. According to LASD, Guardado was armed with an unregistered weapon and did not have a license to work as a security guard in the state. Demonstrations emerged in response...
