Recently, the defendant was charged in Kern Countythe prisonMurder of fellow prisoners.
According to the Kern County District Attorney’s Office, defendant Ramon Alberto Escobar will appear in court on Thursday, 21st, charged with the murder of fellow inmate Juan Villanueva at North Kern State Prison on February 24.
The murder charge also includes special circumstance allegations for seven prior murders. The defendant was also charged with malicious assault on an inmate serving a life sentence, according to the Kern County District Attorney’s Office. Juan Villanueva was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole for aggravated sexual assault of a child under 14 in Los Angeles County. The California Department of Justice said in early 2023 that Juan Villanueva was found unconscious in the same cell as Escobar.
In May 2022, Escobar was sentenced to two life terms without parole for a series of murders in Los Angeles County. He was also sentenced to 124 years of life imprisonment. In a subsequent video conference, defendant Escobar admitted in the same court in the city of Los Angeles to murdering his uncle and aunt in Texas in August 2018. A plea agreement avoided a possible death sentence in Texas. The defendants in both murders were also sentenced to life in prison in California.
The defendant asked the judge in early November 2018 to resolve his case quickly without going to trial. He pleaded guilty to charges with special circumstances, including multiple murders and murder during the commission of a robbery, as well as the attempted murder of seven victims. At a court hearing in May 2022, when Judge Mark Hanasono asked the defendant how he pleaded guilty to each charge, the defendant pleaded guilty to all.
When the defendant was interviewed by police in October 2018, he said he wanted to talk about the people he killed and how to dispose of the remains. She also said that there were remains that police could not find. For example, in Texas, an uncle and aunt were murdered and their bodies were thrown into separate trash bins. According to the indictment, the defendant murdered some of his victims in Los Angeles because he was angry with the victims, because they showed disrespect to law enforcement, or because he needed the money for the robberies.
A defense attorney for the defendant told the media after the hearing that the defendant had always had serious psychological problems, and that Escobar had once told the attorney that it was God and the Devil who wanted him to commit the crime.
Escobar spent five years in prison for burglary in Texas from 1995 to 2000, and was arrested in 2017 and early 2018 on suspicion of assault and criminal trespass.
