accused killer/rapist apears in court

This is some crazy news out of San Diego... 39-year-old Philong Huynh, who is accused of sexually assaulting and killing one man last year and sexually assaulting a second young man this year, pleaded not guilty to murder and sodomy charges: Accused Killer in Dane Williams Murder Appears in Court.

Huynh was arrested last week and charged with murdering and sodomizing 23-year-old Dane Williams. He also faces a special circumstance allegation of sodomy, which makes eligible for the death penalty if convicted of killing Williams.

The victim disappeared after leaving a bar in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter early last year. His body was found three days later in an alley one block from where Huynh lived. DNA evidence indicated that he had been sexually assaulted.

The DNA was uploaded into a criminal database, but the suspect remained unidentified until four months ago, when a second young man came forward and said he had been drugged and sexually assaulted by Huynh. The DNA evidence collected was a match, linking Huynh to the Williams killing.

The District Attorney will decide later in the case whether the defendant will face the death penalty or life in prison without parole should he be convicted. Wherever you go, you deserve it, you psycho rapist.

Police think there could be additional victims and ask that anyone with information about Huynh contact the SDPD homicide unit at 619-531-2293.
