Fifty-year-old Dennis Koire was in a coma for the 13 months after he was shot in the head on Feb. 14, 2010. The Westminster man succumbed to his injuries this past March.

In announcing the death penalty will be sought for Pasqual Raul Loera, who is also accused of killing Koire's 48-year-old life partner Julie Palasco, who died instantly that Valentine's Day, the Orange County District Attorney's (OCDA) office revealed attempted murder charges for Koire's shooting had been bumped up to first-degree murder. That makes Koire Orange County's 54th homicide victim of 2011.

Loera, a 33-year-old Navy deserter and unemployment statistic out of Redlands, was seen by security outside a Primm, Nevada, casino limping, bleeding and crying before he jumped into a black Infiniti and drove away. After a brief chase, the car wound up in a ditch. When Las Vegas police discovered the Infiniti was registered to a Westminster couple, cops in Orange County were asked to check on the pair.

Westminster police officers went to Koire and Palasco's residence in the 5000 block of Duncannon Avenue, they discovered the woman had been shot dead, the man was clinging to life and the two-story home had been ransacked. Koire was then rushed in grave condition to a hospital and remained in a coma for the next 13 months before he died.

The drifter was then arrested and originally charged with felony counts of special circumstances murder and attempted murder with special circumstances including murder during the commission of robbery and burglary. The OCDA announced Tuesday the ultimate penalty will be sought for Loera:


Police and prosecutors believe Loera had responded to an AutoTrader ad that listed the couple's Infiniti was for sale. Koire and Palasco had hoped to use proceeds from the car sale to help them better ease into retirement.

After shooting the couple and taking their car, Loera is alleged to have driven to his home in Redlands, where he accidentally shot himself in the leg, before heading to Nevada without having sought medical attention. See:

This is a stand-up vacuum cleaner that has as much suction and power as one that is twice its size, and it also has the added advantage of being a canister vacuum cleaner, too. So, if you are used to cleaning your stairs or underneath your bed or furniture with a canister vacuum, then you will basically get two vacuum cleaners in one with this model. The canister essentially lifts away and it is light enough for you to hold in your hand while you are cleaning.

Slips, trips and falls are often caused by spilled liquids or cleaning products left on floors. Electric cables from vending machines and musical equipment may also cause customers to trip and fall. Violence on the part of other customers, staff or bouncers would result in a criminal compensation claim. Customers may also bring compensation claims against pubs where the facilities are inadequate and injury is caused.pub trip injury compensation

Yup, Palasco, the 'lifepartner', was also in on the act.

http://articles.latimes.com/19...Seems like suing for 'reverse' sex discrimination was something of a hobby -- or maybe even cottage industry -- for these guys. And this being a SoCal 'discrimination' law, you know Gloria Allred was involved.----Attorney Gloria Allred filed the suit on behalf of Andrew Exler, 27, of Palm Springs, Dennis Koire, 27, of Anaheim, and Koire's girlfriend, Julie Palasco, 24, of Los Angeles. She said that when the three tried to attend a show at Chippendales on May 20, 1987, they were told that no men were allowed.----http://articles.latimes.com/19...
