LANCASTER – An ex-convict who got a $290,000 settlement from the LAPD’s Rampart scandal was sentenced Thursday to 40 years to life in prison for fatally shooting another man in a Palmdale apartment complex garage. Roy Montes, 27, of Lancaster, was convicted of second-degree murder in the May 2004 slaying of 58-year-old Travis McMillon of Palmdale. A clear motive was never identified, but Montes had claimed self-defense. “This was real unfortunate because Mr. Montes, after winning money in the settlement, had a chance to start his life over. But instead, he drifted back into his criminal lifestyle and drug use, and that resulted in him murdering the victim and spending the rest of his life in prison,” prosecutor Hayden Zacky said. Montes received a settlement from the city of Los Angeles after he said drugs were planted on him by Los Angeles Police Department ex-officers Rafael Perez and Nino Durden. His payout was part of the $70 million paid to settle lawsuits that alleged misconduct or brutality by LAPD officers. Montes has prior convictions for attempted robbery, assault and possession of rock cocaine for sale. Witnesses said the victim had been talking to a woman in an apartment garage on 10th Street East in Palmdale just after 4 a.m. May 15 when Montes came into the garage, officials said. The woman went into a nearby apartment, then heard gunshots. The victim stumbled back into the apartment mortally wounded, and Montes fled. McMillon was pronounced dead at Antelope Valley Hospital. The defendant and the victim knew each other. At the time, Montes was believed to have been living in a Lancaster motel for several weeks but did not return to it after the shooting, officials said. Montes was arrested by Los Angeles police in June 2004, records show.

In the end, Perez emerged as the main culprit. He and his partner, Durden, were the only officers sent to prison. Antelope Valley Superior Court jurors deliberated just a few hours before convicting Montes of murder in September. Jurors also found true the allegation that he used a firearm, causing death. The defense argued that McMillon pointed a gun at Montes and tried to rob him, and that Montes shot McMillon in self-defense, prosecutors said. The victim was not armed, prosecutors said. Montes’ attorney declined through his office to comment on the case.

Tags:#enterprise Xing is one of the top business social networks in the market today, especially in Europe. But the new features they’re touting for the paid Premium users are grossly underwhelming. In general terms, the platform is solid. The free functionality is more than adequate for the kind of networking you’d do on LinkedIn or any other professional site. But we have a hard time imagining anyone eagerly laying down cash for the ability to upload their resume and get birthday reminders. Xing is a serious contender among business social networks. This international public company, based in Germany, has more than 7 million users in 16 languages. 600,000 of those are already paying for Premium membership. But even at the relatively cheap price of €6 a month, we can’t imagine many new customers being interested in a paid service whose most-recently advertised feature enhancements are file uploading (limited to three) and Facebook-style birthday reminders. While it’s certainly nice to be able to add your resume or CV to a business networking account or not forget the bosses’ birthday, it’s far from cutting edge. If Xing wants to move in to more international markets outside Europe or make a play against LinkedIn, they’re going to have to do better.
