Sacramento jury convicts brothers in murder of state correctional officer www.privateofficer.com
One of the panels returned its verdict today against Chong Vue, 32. A separate jury convicted his brother Gary Vue, 30, on Friday.
Their older brother, Chu Vue, 46, a former Sacramento sheriff’s deputy, was convicted in a separate trial last Sept. 29.
Chu Vue was accused of setting up the murder because the 39-year-old Lo was having an affair with the former deputy’s wife.
Gary and Chong Vue are scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 14 by Judge Steve White. With their juries confirming the special-circumstance allegation that they were lying in wait when they killed Lo, they are likely to receive life terms with no chance of parole, the same as their older brother.
Gary Vue’s jury affirmed that he fired the gun that killed Lo in the garage of his south Sacramento home on Oct. 15, 2008. Chong Vue’s jury, while convicting him of participating in the murder conspiracy, did not find the allegation that he personally discharged a firearm to be true.
