Jury mulls fate of man in slaying of 3 teens

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A jury must now decide whether a Philadelphia man was defending his family or acting as an executioner when he opened fire on a car crowded with teenagers, killing three of them.

Prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty if 32-year-old Axel Baretto is convicted of first-degree murder in the January 2012 deaths in Juniata of 14-year-old Joshua Soto, 14-year-old Dante Lugo, and 16-year-old Javier Orlandi.

The gunfire followed months of trouble between the teens and another group that included Baretto’s stepson.

The Philadelphia Inquirer says prosecutors said Baretto fired 10 shots into the small car and kept firing after the car was retreating. Defense attorney Jack McMahon said the teens were circling the block, terrifying the family and the car was heading toward Baretto when he fired.

I think the man did a good job! Got rid of some thug wannabes. Too bad he didn't get more of them! I'm sick of gang trash.
