Categories: 2011 Homicides
Monday's arraignment of John Rand Agosta, who is accused of killing his estranged wife by shooting her nine times in the chest and kicking her body, has been continued to July 15.

Prosecutors allege the 35-year-old Anaheim man waited for Alejandra Hernandez to leave her job at an Irvine day care for lunch Thursday afternoon before following her Ford Mustang to the quiet Turtle Rock cul de sac where she was murdered.

After 28-year-old Hernandez was repeatedly shot, Agosta is accused of getting back into the Volvo he was driving but being unable to start the engine. He is then alleged to have exited the Volvo, gone over to the body of Hernandez and kicked her once before fleeing on foot.
