PASADENA A 26-year-old man faces a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole at his sentencing next month after Pasadena jury convicted him of the fatal stabbing of a Pasadena barbershop owner in 2011, authorities said.
At his second trial following a hung jury and mistrial in September, a Pasadena Superior Court jury found Davon Westley Moore of Los Angeles guilty of first-degree murder for the Sept. 21, 2011, slaying of 43-year-old King E. King, Los Angeles County District Attorney’s officials said.
King was found about 12:30 a.m., lying in a pool of blood behind his barbershop, King King’s Barber and Beauty Salon, in the 900 block of East Washington Boulevard in Pasadena.
The stabbing, which police characterized as brutal, stemmed from robbery and burglary at the shop, according to district attorney’s officials and Pasadena police investigators.
King didn’t go without a struggle, Pasadena police Lt. Tracey Ibarra said.
“He was fighting to survive this attack,” she said.
In addition to first-degree murder, the Jury also found true the special circumstances of murder during a robbery and murder during a burglary, prosecutors said.
Moore is expected to receive a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole when he returns to court for sentencing Dec. 9, district attorney’s officials said.
Moore’s co-defendant, 22-year-old Sabrina Octavia King of Compton, who was not related to the victim, pleaded “no contest” to charges of voluntary manslaughter and robbery in March, officials said. She faces up to 21 years in state prison when she returns to court for sentencing,
A previous trial for Moore in September ended in a mistrial, with jurors hung 11-1 in favor of convicting Moore.

SAN DIMAS Deputies jailed two men early Saturday for allegedly burglarizing a residential garage in San Dimas, officials said.
Officials ultimately arrested Alex Powell of Altadena and Briley Lambert of Covina, both 18, on suspicion of residential burglary following the 3:40 p.m. crime in the 1600 block of Via Alegre, officials from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s San Dimas Station said.
A resident called deputies to report someone was inside the garage, officials said. Two men were seen leaving the garage, which the resident had accidentally left open, before deputies arrived.
Deputies found Powell hiding nearby, sheriff’s officials said in a written statement.
“Upon checking the location he was hiding, they recovered items stolen from the garage. In addition, he had a checkbook in his pocket that was stolen from an unlocked vehicle on Via Esperanza,” according to the sheriff’s statement.
About two hours after the initial report of a break-in, deputies found and arrested Lambert in the same area in connection with the burglary, according to officials and county booking records. He was allegedly found with items taken from the Via Alegre garage.
Lambert was also being sought by another local police agency, who had previously found his fingerprints at the scene of a residential burglary, sheriff’s officials said.
According to county booking records, Powell and Briley were being held in lieu of $50,000 bail each pending their initial court appearances, scheduled Tuesday in Pomona Superior Court.
