Former security guard sentenced to life in killing of supervisor
A former security guard was sentenced Sept. 10 to life in prison without the possibility of parole in the 2013 killing of his supervisor in Marina Del Rey, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.
Byron Keith Street, a 49-year-old black man, was convicted Sept. 4 of one count of murder with the special circumstance that the killing occurred during a burglary. Street was also convicted of burglary, false impersonation, counterfeit seal and three counts of vandalism over $400, according to prosecutors.
Street worked with Patrick Odoi-Kyene, 47, at an apartment complex in Marina Del Rey. The day before the shooting, Odoi-Kyene had reported that Street brought his girlfriend to work.
Hours before the shooting on Dec. 30, 2013, Street went to a parking garage and vandalized multiple cars, including Odoi-Kyene's. Street also scratched the words “Patrick must go,” on a car, authorities said.
Street’s ex-girlfriend also pleaded no contest to knowledge of the crime after the fact.
