Convicted Murderer Loses Appeal Over Failed Re-Sentencing Bid


A state appeals court panel has rejected the latest appeal filed on behalf of one of two former Whittier residents convicted of the January 2009 murder of a San Pedro woman who was found shot to death in her car.

In its ruling Tuesday, the three-justice panel from California’s 2nd District Court of Appeal agreed with a lower court judge’s conclusion that Daniel Keith Martinez is ineligible for re-sentencing under a recent change in state law that affects defendants in some murder cases.

Martinez was convicted along with co-defendant Raul Tiscareno of first-degree murder for the Jan. 30, 2009, killing of Ginie Samayoa, whose body was found in the driver’s seat of her red Toyota Tercel in an alley behind a San Pedro diner.
