Convicted Calif. cop killer gets death penalty

Alberto Alvarez murdered Officer Richard May in '06


San Francisco Chronicle

EAST PALO ALTO, Calif. — The "evil" killer of an East Palo Alto police officer showed no mercy or remorse as he stood over the fallen man and fired a final shot into his head, the officer's family said today in court before a judge sentenced the convicted murderer to death.

Alberto Alvarez, 26, showed no reaction as family members of Officer Richard May denounced him in a packed Redwood City courtroom. But he sighed as Superior Court Judge Craig Parsons followed an earlier jury decision and formally sentenced him to die by lethal injection for the 2006 killing.
