LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A former security guard at a Marina del Rey apartment complex was ordered Thursday to be held without bail while awaiting arraignment on a murder charge in connection with the shooting death of his supervisor.
KNX 1070’s Jon Baird reports investigators believe revenge may have driven Brian Keith Street to allegedly kill 47-year-old Patrick Odoikyene.
Street, 47, of Inglewood, is scheduled to be arraigned Feb. 19 for the slaying of Odoikyene, who was found shot to death at 2:48 a.m. on Dec. 30 outside the upscale Shores apartment complex in the 4200 block of Via Marina.
The murder charge includes the special circumstance allegation that Odoikyene was murdered during the course of a burglary, along with an allegation that Street personally and intentionally discharged a handgun during the crime.
Prosecutors will later decide whether to seek the death penalty against Street, who was arrested Dec. 31 in the first murder in Marina del Rey since 2010.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Lt. Dave Dolson said they were able to apprehend Street fairly quickly on charges that were unrelated to the murder.
“He was arrested on the fraud charges, which involved identity theft,” Dolson said. “There were several witnesses who were able to offer pieces to the puzzle.”
Street had previously been suspended by Odoikyene for bringing his girlfriend to work, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
He and girlfriend Ann Una Bailey, 23, of Inglewood, face five counts of theft and one count of false impersonation. Street was also charged with one count of counterfeit seal.
