Orange County stabbing spree suspect charged with 11 felony counts after rampage leaves 4 dead
Looks like a DL photo to me, but no way of knowing for sure.
Prosecutors have charged a 33-year-old man with four counts of murder after police say he went on a violent stabbing spree in Garden Grove and Santa Ana this week.
Zachary Castaneda, a documented gang member from Garden Grove, faces felonies and enhancements that make him eligible for the death penalty, the Orange County District Attorney’s Office said on Friday, August 9.
Castaneda faces a minimum sentence of life without the possibility of parole if convicted on all charges.
In a little more than two hours on Wednesday, August 7, police say, Castaneda left a trail of destruction that ended lives and wounded people going about their day, including one man pumping gas whose nose he nearly sliced off.

Undercover detectives arrested Castaneda when they saw him leaving a 7-Eleven armed with a knife and gun stolen from a man he’d just killed inside the store.
Police have said that the victims were randomly targeted and Castaneda has not said why he went on the killing spree.

This one will take a very long time to come to trial as he is eligible for the death penalty. I checked the court records and his next hearing is July 15th of 2020. I'll try to keep track of it if I'm still here.
