Six years after Erick Morales was formal-ly charged with fatally stabbing a teenacquaintance in 2001, the former Daly Cityman began trial on the murder and weaponscharges that could send him to prison forlife.The trial in the May 21, 2001, death of 15-year-old Quetzlcoatl Alba also comesless than two months after a jury convictedhis former childhood friend and lover in thesame crime. Reynaldo Maldonado, 34, willreceive life in prison for the murder — thesame sentence Morales, 32, faces althoughhe may not have the option of parole.While Maldonado claimed during trial heonly helped clean up the crime scene, healso took a photo of Morales standing overAlba’s body.Although officially underway, the trial isoff to a walking start withmotions due by the end of next week and openingstatements not scheduleduntil Jan. 27. The slowprogress is in line withthe entire case’s historywhich began with the dis-covery of Alba’s body instorage unit turned teenhangout at the WestlakeApartments, then stalling for years whileboth suspects went on the lam and the unex-pected restart in 2007 when Maldonado wasturned in by a friend in Florida. In 2009, twoyears after Maldonado’s arrest, Morales wasapprehended after an East Coast traffic stoprevealed his identity.The prosecution has been mum on a spe-cific motive for Morales killing Alba, cit-ing the pending trial, but duringMaldonado’s trial told jurors that the latterheld the teen down while the former stabbedhim repeatedly in the neck, arms and torso.Maldonado testified on his own behalf thatMorales killed Alba and then called him tohelp hide the weapon and other evidence.Both men were eyed as suspects but eachleft Daly City shortly after the murder. Maldonado testified that he helpedMorales because the two had been friendsand lovers in Guatemala before each movedto the Bay Area. He also said that Morales’father frightened him. Jurors deliberated three days before con-victing Maldonado of murder but rejectedthe special allegation of lying in wait thatwould have negated the possibility of parole.Maldonado and Morales are both in cus-tody without bail. Maldonado will be sen-tenced Jan. 31.

Trial starts for co-defendant in teen murder
OAKLAND — Afederal judge on Thursdayordered settlement talks between lawyers fora California hospital and a 13-year-oldCalifornia girl declared brain dead after tonsilsurgery. Afederal magistrate will oversee themandatory talks on Friday between represen-tatives of Children’s Hospital Oakland andthe family of Jahi McMath, U.S. DistrictJudge Saundra Brown said. Settlement confer-ences are usually scheduled to expedite courtcases or to end them without a trial. The hospital and Jahi’s mother are lockedin a harrowing clash over the girl’s care.Children’s maintains that Jahi is legally deadand that the ventilator keeping her heartpumping should be removed. Astate judgeoriginally ordered the hospital to keep theventilator in place until Dec. 30 at 5 p.m.,but an hour before the deadline agreed toextend it until Jan. 7. The girl’s mother, Nailah Winkfield, wantsto transfer her to another facility and forcethe hospital to either to fit Jahi with thebreathing and feeding tubes she would needto be moved safely or to allow an outside doc-tor to perform the surgical procedures. “At this point, Jahi has not had nutritionfor nearly three weeks. She is in desperateneed of a tracheostomy tube and a gastrictube,” Winkfield’s lawyer, ChristopherDolan, wrote in a motion filed with JudgeBrown on Thursday. “The defendant hasresponded that ... they will not allow such aprocedure to be done and will not write dis-charge instructions that instruct a physicianto carry out such orders.”Although another federal judge, Chief U.S.District Judge Claudia Wilkens, already hasrefused to order the hospital to insert therequested gastric and tracheostomy tubes, thedispute over the procedures is likely to figureprominently in Friday’s talks. The hospital’s lawyer, Douglas Straus, hassaid doctors have no legal obligation tooperate on the body of a dead person, but thatthe matter remains irrelevant for now becausethe family has not named a doctor who iswilling to put in the tubes or a facility capa-ble of caring for Jahi. The issue also is being considered by thestate judge who so far has blocked Children’sHospital from removing Jahi’s ventilator.Alameda County Superior Court EvelioGrillo has scheduled a hearing for Fridaymorning so he can speak with the opposingsides about how to handle that part of thecase.
