Man sentenced to death for killing L.A. cop


Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — Calling a 26-year-old gang member a predator responsible for a cold-blooded killing, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge sentenced him today to death for fatally shooting an off-duty county police captain.

Miguel Angel Magallon received his sentence by Judge Kathleen Kennedy in a downtown courtroom two months after a jury recommended he be executed for the murder of Capt. Michael L. Sparkes during an attempted robbery.
