A man who literally got away with murder as a teen and who was on parole for a string of later crimes will likely be charged today for allegedly committing a whole new murder.

John Raymond Breceda, 36, of Santa Ana, is currently in Orange County Jail in lieu of $1 million bail for a parole violation, according to veteran homicide prosecutor Matt Murphy of the Orange County District Attorney's office (OCDA).
Breceda is a drug user accused of slashing the throat of drug dealer Floriberto Villasenor Cortes on May 30 in Costa Mesa. The 44-year-old, also of Santa Ana, had his throat slit in his car before he was found bleeding on a residential lawn in the 2900 block of Peppertree Lane. Police believe it was a drug deal gone bad. Cortes' vehicle was found the next day, burning in a field near the 5 freeway and Junipero Serra Road, according to Costa Mesa Police Lt. Greg Scott.More »
