Roy Buchner – Death Penalty Murder Case – Jury Hung Then Dismissed

Roy Buchner was one of four young men charged with murdering a fellow Eighteenth Street Gang member and his girlfriend and leaving her two children to starve to death in a remote cabin in 1997.  Mr. Twohig defended this death penalty case and the jury hung in the first trial, voting 10 to 2 for acquittal. Before the second trial took place, through various legal arguments, evidence which the prosecution had relied upon in the first trial was ruled inadmissible after additional litigation by Mr. Twohig. The case was dismissed by the prosecutor. Mr. Moya later authored the book titled Torreon Cabin Murders.
