The now 25-year-old was charged with first-degree murder for the deaths of 13-year-old Johnny Edwards, 17-year-old Kendrick Pitts and 15-year-old Raheem Washington.

Prosecutors say the Latin Kings gang member was aiming for a member of a rival gang, but hit the teenagers instead.

Six months before the slayings, Ybarra was acquitted of a 2005 fatal shooting that killed a 19-year-old man at the same intersection.
