Teen Sentenced to Die Melts Down

Chaos Breaks Out in Harris County Court After Death Sentence


28 Jun 2007



Dexter Johnson, just moments after he received the death penalty in a Harris County courtroom.

HOUSTON -- A teen found guilty of murder in a deadly crime spree in Fort Bend County lunges towards one of the murder victim's family after he was sentenced to death, FOX 26 News reported Wednesday.



Salee Aparece



Huy Ngo

Immediately after the verdict was read, 19-year-old Dexter Johnson knocked over a computer monitor on the defense table and he lunged toward the victim's family. Harris County court deputies tackled him to the ground and he was dragged out of court.

Johnson's mother started crying out after the verdict was read and members of his family tried to approach him and the deputies. Johnson's family was escorted out of the courtroom.

The victims' families remained inside the courtroom following the incident.

Jurors took about four hours to reach the verdict.

Johnson was found guilty last week for his part in a string of crimes during Father's Day weekend of 2006.

Investigators found the bodies of Maria Aparece and Huy Ngo in a field near the 10400 block of Gateway Drive in northeast Houston on June 23, 2006. Police believed Aparece and Ngo were carjacked and murdered.

Just to add: Maria Aparece was raped while Huy Ngo was forced to watch.

This low-life deserves to die and I sincerely hope he rots in Hell like the low-life bum that he is.

Re: Teen Sentenced to Die Melts Down

i feel sorry for the families on both sides, the victims' side and the perpetrator's (well, his mother, at least). sad sad sad. and depressing.

around the same time this happened, another flip chick in houston got carjacked at HK City Mall, and was later thrown out of her moving car, hit the pavement, and suffered fatal skull trauma. the low-life perps were later seen on a department store security camera trying to use her credit cards or her atm card or something. did they ever catch them? they should fry, too.

Re: Teen Sentenced to Die Melts Down

why would he lunge at one of the murdered victim's family members when the verdict was read? was he/she holding a bucket of kentucky fried chicken? it's got 0 trans fat now.

Re: Teen Sentenced to Die Melts Down

Sounds like a textbook psychopath to me. They only care when something bad happens to themselves. Inability to empathize with others. Violent tendencies. Time for the magic needle.

Awesome! he sure looks repentant to me.

Too bad they're shutting down Gitmo, fun times could have been had by all.

Sentence leads to outburst in court
Teenager condemned to death in rape, robbery, slaying

By PAIGE HEWITT
Copyright 2007 Houston Chronicle


OUTBURST IN COURT
Convicted killer erupts at death sentence
A whirlwind of emotions took over a Harris County courtroom Wednesday after a young man condemned to death hurled his chair in anger, triggering police to subdue him and relatives to beg for mercy.

Two of 19-year-old Dexter Johnson's relatives collapsed in the hall and were taken away on stretchers. The young mother of Johnson's toddler daughter lay on the floor moaning and almost breathless.

Later, the presiding judge consoled some in the audience, including the parents of the woman Johnson was convicted of robbing, raping and killing, who watched the courtroom drama unfold.

"Are you OK?" a calm state District Judge Denise Collins asked the parents of 23-year-old Maria Aparece. She gently hugged Christina Aparece and shook the hand of Protasio Aparece Jr.

Moments earlier, the courtroom had watched Johnson's reaction to his punishment.

He had sat stonefaced throughout the day, the third in the punishment phase of his trial, staring at the top of the defense table. After the decision was read, Johnson gazed up and pressed his lips together. His eyes filled with tears. Then he looked toward his family and lifted his hand as if to wave to them.

Then he hurled the chair.

In an instant, a few officers tackled him, while others scrambled to restore order.

His relatives wailed, and a male voice begged, "Don't kill him." Some relatives buckled over and were sobbing as they left after the outburst. An ambulance was called for the two who collapsed.

Moments later, Johnson's mother paced the hallway and spoke emotionally of how her son had been "misjudged."

"My son is no murderer," Renee Johnson said. "He didn't have it in his blood. There was no evidence. ... God is gonna fix this."

Seated inside a then-locked courtroom, a crying Protasio Aparece Jr. told a reporter, "Can you imagine how violent he was the night he killed my daughter."

He also said the most difficult part of the case was sitting through trial, learning exactly how his daughter had been brutalized.

Emotion has surfaced throughout the case. At a pretrial hearing last year, one of Aparece's uncles lunged at Johnson.

When the jury found him guilty earlier this month, Johnson covered his face with his hands as the foreman read the verdict. He stormed out of the courtoom after jurors adjourned to the jury room.

Johnson, who at one point during the punishment phase of his trial refused to come to court, was among five accused of carjacking Aparece and her boyfriend, Huy Ngo, on June 18, 2006. The pair were chatting in her Toyota in front of Ngo's home when Johnson and two others threatened them with a shotgun and a pistol, according to testimony.

Johnson; his friend Keithron Fields, 18; and a third man who is not charged in the case, drove the couple around Houston while taking Aparece's cash and credit cards and trying to get her ATM access number, according to trial testimony. Timothy Randle, 20, and Ashley Ervin, 18, were following the stolen vehicle in Ervin's car.

Prosecutors said Johnson raped Aparece in the backseat of her car after parking near a patch of thick woods. Her boyfriend was forced to listen to the assault while on his knees as the other four taunted him.

Johnson and Fields then marched a naked Aparece and a shirtless Ngo 60 feet into the woods and shot both in the head.

The two bodies were in the woods for five days before investigators pieced together what happened. Randle led them to the bodies.

The five are suspected in a crime spree that authorities said also claimed the lives of Brady Davis and Jose Lopez in separate shootings. Fields, Randle and Ervin continue to face capital murder charges in the incident.

That case really hits home because I was friends with one of the girl's brothers in high school.

I was wondering if you knew about the case.

Here's a photo of the gang. By the way Ashley Ervin, the one on the bottom right of the photo is actually a 17 year old girl.



# Dexter Johnson -- 18 years old
3 counts capital murder; 2 counts robbery

# Ashley Ervin -- 17 years old
2 counts capital murder

# Alvie Butler -- 22 years old
1 count capital murder

# Keithron Fields -- 17 years old
2 counts capital murder

# Timothy Randle -- 18 years old
2 counts capital murder

They are also accused of killing this man:



Brady Davis

Re: Teen Sentenced to Die Melts Down

Don't believe in the death penalty, but that's some real cowardice/entitlement right there. He subjected the two to worse than a clean dignified (is that possible with killing a person?) death like he'll receive.
