Court Proceedings Delayed Again in Michelle Le Murder Case

Posted by: on December 4, 2011

Court proceedings in the case of a Union City woman charged with murdering San Mateo nursing student Michelle Le have once again been postponed.  Proceedings in the case were initially delayed due to undisclosed medical issues on Sept. 8. They were postponed again when Esteban attempted to fire her Public Defender Andrea Auer on Oct. 24. The request was later denied.

Giselle Diwag Esteban, 27, is scheduled to return to court Jan. 6 to enter a plea.

Though Le’s body was missing at the time of Esteban’s arrest, police said evidence, including Le’s DNA found on Esteban’s athletic shoes, footage from security cameras at the Kaiser Permanente parking structure, cell phone records and evidence found inside Le’s car, led to Esteban’s arrest.  Esteban is the lone suspect charged with the murder of Le, 26.

San Mateo teen charged as an adult for murder

Posted by: on July 14, 2011

San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office charges teen as an adult for the shooting death of a 3-month-old boy.  17-year-old Fabian Zaragoza entered pleas of not guilty on Wednesday for the fatal shooting of Izack Jesus Jimenez Garcia and the wounding of his parents.

Zaragoza is also facing a special circumstance charge of lying in wait, two counts of attempted murder and use of a firearm.  Zaragoza and a 16-year-old boy were arrested for allegedly opening fire at Izack and his family as they were leaving a baby shower in East Palo Alto.

Police say the shooting was a case of mistaken identity and intended as apparent retaliation for a beating Zaragoza received during a gang fight in May.

If you or someone you love has been accused of murder, attempted murder, or is a juvenile being charged as an adult, please contact our office at 415-484-1718 or info@chewlawoffices.com for an immediate consultation.
