An 87-year-old San Gabriel Valley man was sentenced to 26 years to life in prison for the murder of his wife and the attempted murder of his stepson last week. James Che Ming Lu was convicted of first-degree murder in July after attacking his 55-year-old wife with a hatchet in 2009, as well as attempting to murder his stepson, who managed to fend off Lu's attack and escape before being injured. Lu was 85 at the time. According to reports, Lu was apparently upset that he spent too much money on his wife and that she spent too much time away from home while working. Lu's July trial was his second after a jury failed to reach a unanimous verdict during a previous trial last year.
If you are facing a serious criminal charge such as murder, you need to find an experienced and skilled Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney right away. The right Attorney can expertly guide you through a criminal trial that can literally change your life. An experienced Attorney can tell you that a first-degree murder is the willful, deliberate and premeditated. Being convicted of first-degree murder carries a minimum sentence of at least 25 years in prison, though, depending on the case, could include life in prison. An experienced Defense Attorney can also tell you that in cases of domestic violence that are not as serious as murder, the victim of the crime does not have to decide to press charges in order for you to be charged with a domestic violence crime. In cases involving domestic violence, even as seemingly simple as minor physical violence, if local law enforcement agents investigating see evidence of domestic violence, they can actually arrest you on suspicion of domestic violence and proceed with criminal charges. If you have been charged with domestic abuse or a violent crime such as murder, call the offices of Kestenbaum, Eisner & Gorin, LLP today at 1-877-781-1570 to speak to a capable Attorney.
