Man found guilty of murder in 1995 kidnapping and stabbing in California

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 05/08/2015 - 09:58
The case stems from the killing in Orange County of 24-year-old Gonzalo Ramirez, who was hacked to death with a meat cleaver. Norma Esparza, who at the time was a college student in the area and went on to become a professor at Webster University in Switzerland, has said Ramirez raped her a few weeks before his death. Prosecutors said she told Gianni Van, with whom she had been in a relationship, about Ramirez and that she pointed him out to Van at a bar before Van and his friends kidnapped Ramirez and murdered him. A Santa Ana jury on Thursday found Van, now 45, guilty of special circumstances murder during a kidnapping in the death of Ramirez, the Orange County District Attorney's Office said in a statement.
