According to documents filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Hawthorne resident Jacob Ryan Munn is also charged with possessing a firearm while being a convicted felon, as well as a special circumstances allegation of lying in wait.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has denied Munn bail. He could be sentenced to death if found guilty, or to life in prison without the chance of release. Prosecutors have not yet decided whether or not to seek the death penalty.

The custody exchange between Munn and his ex-girlfriend, Brenda Renteria, who is 28 years old, was scheduled to take place at the Police Department on Sunday so that Renteria could pick up their 17-month-old son. Prosecutors claim that when Renteria arrived at the police station, Munn had already dropped the boy off inside.


According to the prosecution, Munn shot and killed Renteria as she approached the station’s entrance.

An officer heard gunfire inside the station and ran out to confront Munn, who was driving away in a black Chevrolet truck. The bullet missed Munn. At the scene, Renteria’s death was officially ruled an accident.

After following Munn’s car, police found it abandoned at 133rd Street and Hawthorne Boulevard, in front of a Denny’s. A search party was dispatched with canines to the area and a perimeter was set up to try and locate him. About three hours later, in the 4400 block of 134th Street, police said they had him in custody on murder charges.
