Lady Justice 3 16-9

A Norwalk man was charged Tuesday with capital murder for the shooting death of a friend.

Diego Arnold Castro, 31, is charged in the Jan. 15 killing of Jose Angel Rios Alvarez, 25, who was found shot to death at Castro’s home, according to prosecutors.

The murder charge includes the special circumstance allegation of murder by means of lying in wait, along with an allegation that Castro personally and intentionally discharged a firearm.

Prosecutors will decide later whether to seek the death penalty against Castro.

He was arrested Friday by Los Angeles County sheriff’s investigators and has remained in jail without bail.
