The “man” who murdered Lancaster Station Sergeant Sheriff Steve Owen admitted to ambushing and executing Sgt. Owen, according to a new report published by the Los Angeles Times.
Suspect/defendant Trenton Lovell was recorded by investigators stating that after Sergeant Owen caught him fleeing from the scene of a burglary, Lovell ambushed Owen by shooting him and then “walked up and … finished the job”.
“Lovell is accused of shooting Owen once in the head before standing over him and firing several additional fatal shots,” the Times reported.
At the time he murdered Sergeant Owen, Lovell had been arrested 11 times and spent two stints in prison, according to the Los Angeles Daily News.
