Jury Convicts Driver of Murder
in New Year 2011 Crash
LOS ANGELES – A Culver City man was convicted of two counts of murder today in the deaths a year ago of a husband and wife who were killed when the defendant allegedly ran a red light and crashed into their car.
Deputy District Attorney Kennes Ma said the jury deliberated about 40 minutes before convicting 28-year-old Alberto Molina of two counts of second-degree murder and one count of felony hit and run. Sentencing was scheduled for March 15. Molina faces a 30-year-to-life term in prison.
Demetria Dorsey, 50, and her 54-year-old husband, Kelvin, were killed around 11:30 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31, 2010. Authorities said Mrs. Dorsey was driving a blue Infinity near Florence Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard.
Molina’s car, authorities said, ran a red light and slammed into the Infinity, flipping it on its roof. Molina got out of his car and attempted to get away, but was arrested by Los Angeles police.
Superior Court Judge Stephen A. Marcus ordered Molina held without bail. He had been in custody in lieu of bail pending the verdict.
