Death Penalty Case Study: Charles Ng

On November 6, will California voters side with the ACLU and other liberal special interests to get rid of the death penalty, or will they vote No on Proposition 34?

Charles Ng is one of California's most notorious serial killers. After being thrown out of the Marines for theft, Ng partnered with Leonard Lake in an extended plot of kidnap, rape, torture and murder. The crimes took place at Lake's remote cabin in Calaveras County. The crimes came to light in 1985. Investigators later recovered the bodies of seven men, three women, two baby boys, and 45 pounds of bone fragments from the site. Investigators also found, in a bunker, a large cache of weapons and videotapes that Ng had made of some of the murders.

 Lake committed suicide as police closed in. Ng fled to Canada but was extradited and convicted in 1999 of multiple counts of murder.

On November 6, please vote NO on Prop 34.
