 Do you REMEMBER the story of the Pechanga Casino Murder from 2019?

An elderly woman visiting Pechanga Resort and Casino, a tribal gaming venue know for cheating their own people via tribal disenrollment, located in Temecula, CA was assaulted soon after arriving on the premises on Sat, Aug. 31 2019, and later died from injuries suffered in the attack, prompting Riverside Co Sheriff’s Dept to arrest 2 female suspects on charges of murder and robbery

A jury was sworn in Wednesday and testimony got underway in the trial of two women accused of robbing and fatally beating a senior at the Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula.

Candace Tai Townsell, 42, and Kimesha Monae Williams, 38, both of Moreno Valley, allegedly killed 84-year-old Afaf Anis Assad of Long Beach in 2019.  Williams is the sister of L.A. Clippers star Kawhi Leonard.

Both defendants are charged with first-degree murder, robbery and elder abuse, as well as a special circumstance allegation of killing during the course of a robbery, with sentence-enhancing great bodily injury allegations.
