Man Found Guilty Of Killing Three Men In West Hollywood Over Few Pounds Of Pot:

A 35-year-old man was found guilty on Monday of killing three men in West Hollywood for a few pounds of pot.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mark Windham found Harold Young Park guilty of three counts each of first-degree murder and residential robbery and one count each of burglary and transportation for sale of marijuana.

Windham also found true special circumstance allegations of multiple murders, murder during a robbery and murder during a burglary.

Prosecutors decided against seeking his execution. Park is expected to get life in prison without the possibility of parole when he is sentenced Nov. 7.

Pirooz Moussazadeh, 27, his brother, 38-year-old Shahriar Moussazadeh, and Bernard Khalili, 27, were fatally shot Aug. 26, 2010, in an apartment in the 600 block of North Kings Road.

Park intended on stealing the pot and ended up shooting all three men.

Sheriff’s deputies tracked Park’s vehicle with license-plate scanning technology and arrested him four days later during a traffic stop in Lomita.

Deputies found three pounds of pot in his vehicle.

Park elected to have a trial by judge rather than a jury.
