Alhambra Double Homicide Defendant Pleads Not Guilty

Alhambra , CA

Sam Nhat Do was arraigned Wednesday morning in Alhambra Superior Court on two counts of capital murder with special circumstances and one count of child abuse under circumstances or conditions likely to produce great bodily harm.

Do, 42, of Alhambra, was led into court by Sheriff’s Deputies for his  appearance, which lasted less than two minutes, as he pled not guilty to the charges. He is being represented by Anne Gilliam, of the Los Angeles County Public Defender’s Office.

Do’s murder charges stem from the shooting deaths of his brother and sister-in-law at a residence on North Second Street in Alhambra on the evening of January 24, the L.A. County District Attorney’s office announced in late January, as reported by Alhambra Source.

Presiding Judge Cathryn F. Brougham set the trial date for April 8, 2020. The Deputy District Attorney prosecuting the case is Kenneth Chiu.

Public Defender Guillam had no comment after the arraignment, as she “doesn’t try cases in the public,” but did say that the situation is a tragedy.

The District Attorney’s office does not plan on releasing any new information at this time and referred reporters  to the original statement from January.
