Los Angeles -- A man has been sentenced to death for killing an off-duty Los Angeles County police captain during a robbery attempt.  Miguel Magallon was sentenced Thursday in Los Angeles.  The 26-year-old was convicted in July of first degree murder and attempted robbery.  Prosecutors say he shot 53-year-old (Captain) Michael Sparkes nine times with an AK-47 assault rifle in 2004 in South Los Angles as Sparkes biked to work.  Magallon's DNA was found on the gun.


Thought everyone might like to know Los Angeles still stands behind their officers in cases like this one. Joyful2

All I can manage to say is how soon is his death, and will he die painfully?
