LOS ANGELES — A 24-year-old man has been charged with the capital murder of his girlfriend’s estranged wife in Granada Hills, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced today. The motive has not been disclosed.

Deputy District Attorney Scott Eisen said Javier Flores of Simi Valley faces one count of murder with a special circumstance allegation of lying in wait and allegations of using a handgun.

Arraignment was scheduled in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, San Fernando Branch. Flores is charged with killing Cheyenne Brown, 24, a young mother, as she arrived home on July 22, the prosecutor said. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Her family told KTLA at the time that she had just returned home from one job, and was going to change clothes and then start driving for Uber when she was shot outside her car.

Witnesses told responding officers they saw a full-size truck fleeing the location after the shooting, authorities said.

The defendant faces death or life in prison without parole if convicted as charged. A decision on whether to seek the death penalty will be made at a later date. Flores is being held without bail. The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department.

WEST HOLLYWOOD (Los Angeles Magazine) — It was an epidemiologist’s worst nightmare set to the new Justin Timberlake/SZA collab from Trolls World Tour.

L.A. was hours away from shutting down all bars due to the coronavirus pandemic, but you wouldn’t have known it from the typical Sunday chaos on Santa Monica Boulevard, as throngs of people (some shirtless) crammed into West Hollywood gay bars like Mother Lode, Mickey’s, and Rocco’s for one last ungloved hurrah.

At Rocco’s, a drag queen in a black latex leotard bravely swooped her hand down to grab a dollar bill from a customer.

Another performer did the splits, touching the floor ever-so-quickly as she pulled herself up. Go-go dancers valiantly kneeled on bar tops, accepting cash in their […]
