POMONA - Two brothers were convicted of first and second-degree murder of their neighbor from 2015.
Flavio Macias, 31, was found guilty of first-degree murder in the killing of Luis Segura. Co-defendant Jonathan Macias, 26, acted as his brother’s lookout and was convicted of second-degree murder, according to Sara Ardalani of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
Flavio Macias Jr. attacked Segura, 44, on August 24, 2015. He was beat to death with paving stones and a hammer, according to Deputy District Attorney Michelle Weiske.
The beating took place around 7 p.m. in the 13400 block of West Moccasin Street in Bassett, an unincorporated community near La Puente. Deputies found the beaten victim who was later taken to County/USC Medical Center where he eventually died.
The brothers barricaded themselves in their home once Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies arrived.
The brothers surrendered when deputies fired teargas and released a K9 into the home.
Flavio faces the possibility of 53 years to life in state prison. Jonathan faces the possibility of 15 years to life, Ardalani said.
Flavio is scheduled to be sentenced at Pomona Superior Court July 5, while Jonathan is scheduled for a September 15 sentencing.
