VISTA, Calif – The murder trial of a wannabe rapper accused of killing his best friend and dumping his body on a rural roadside began Tuesday.
The body of 21-year-old D’Angelo Charon was discovered on the side of Twin Oaks Road in a remote area of Vista on July 12, 2017. He had been shot three times.
About 24 hours later, police arrested Shyrehl Wesley, 20, and his 18-year-old girlfriend, Sheffah Chevis.
In his opening statement Tuesday, prosecutor Keith Watanabe laid out his case for the jury, describing Wesley as a cold-blooded murderer who killed his friend as he pleaded for his life.
