Product Information

Alphonso Howard was sentenced to death after a jury convicted him of first degree murder, rape, and a forcible lewd act upon a child under the age of 14. The jury found that he personally used a firearm during the offenses, and that he caused bodily injury to the child while committing the lewd act. The special circumstances supporting the imposition of the death penalty were that the rape and forcible lewd act upon a child occurred while defendant committed the murder. Eleven-year-old Wendy Bustamante lived with her parents, Carlos and Soila Bustamante, in Compton.

On April 2, 1988, at 4:30 p.m., Wendy went outside to play. Five minutes later, Mrs. Bustamante realized she was missing and began searching for her. One of Wendy’s playmates was K., defendant’s younger sister. K. and their mother, Mary Williams, lived several doors down from the Bustamante family. Mrs. Williams called the police for Mrs. Bustamante, who did not speak English. Defendant had a room in the back of a converted garage located on Mrs. Williams’s property, but detached from her house. Defendant made five statements to the police. He began by denying any involvement in the disappearance. On April 3, the day after Wendy was reported missing, Officer Louis Mendez interviewed defendant as part of the ongoing investigation of the disappearance. Defendant said that Wendy had come to the Williams residence seeking $5 in payment for earrings she had sold defendant’s mother.

Howard was sentenced to death on October 20, 1992 in Los Angeles County.
