    Roger Hoan Brady - California Death Row







    Facts of the Crime:

    Convicted and sentenced to death in Los Angeles County in the December 27, 1993 murder of Manhattan Beach Police Officer Martin Ganz during a traffic stop. The five-year veteran of the Manhattan Beach Police Department was conducting a late night traffic stop in the Manhattan Village Mall. What Ganz thought was a routine traffic stop quickly turned tragic. As Ganz approached the vehicle, the driver started shooting. Ganz's nephew was on a ride-along, and witnessed the murder. After repeatedly shooting Ganz, the suspect reportedly approached the nephew, pointed and shot at him, only to have the gun misfire.

    On August 1, 1996, he was extradited to Los Angeles to stand trial for the murder of Officer Ganz. On Thursday, November 19, 1998, Roger Brady was convicted of first-degree murder with special circumstances for the murder of Officer Ganz. After the penalty phase of the trial, the jury returned with a verdict of death for Roger Hoan Brady for the murder of Officer Martin Ganz. On Tuesday, March 16th, 1999, Roger Brady was sentenced to the death penalty in Superior Court, Department L, Torrance, California.

    Court rejects death penalty appeal for Ganz killer

    The state's highest court today rejected Roger Hoan Brady's automatic appeal of his death penalty for killing the first Manhattan Beach police officer to die in the line of duty.

    Brady killed Officer Martin Ganz, 29, during a traffic stop on Sepulveda Boulevard on Dec. 27, 1993.

    Among his arguments that were addressed in the 57-page Supreme Court opinion, Brady argued that the jury was wrongly precluded from hearing evidence that suggested others could have committed the murder.

    Specifically, he says two confessions, one written and one to a 911 operator, as well as information about another officer-involved fatal shooting in Palos Verdes Estates and a discrepancy in a witness identification should have been given to the jury.

    But the court's unanimous opinion, penned by Justice Kathryn Werdegar, stated that evidence which purports to show that another person had motive to commit the crime, without any other information linking them to it, is irrelevant. Brady also unsuccessfully argued that a jury should have heard about the criminal record of a key prosecution eyewitness.

    He argued that the witness tailored his testimony to curry favor with prosecutors.

    However, he never proffered evidence to show that the witness was offered leniency or threatened with retaliation, the opinion states.

    In addition, the prosecutor didn't even know the witness was on probation for battery until the trial began, the opinion noted.

    A career criminal likely on his way to hold up the nearby Ralph's supermarket, Brady fired at Ganz, who retreated after being wounded.

    Brady followed Ganz to where he crouched behind his patrol car, and shot him in the back. He fired one more time, while the officer was down, before fleeing.

    Ganz's then 12-year-old nephew, on a ride along, witnessed the slaying.

    Brady was extradited from Oregon after being convicted in Beaverton of killing a customer during a supermarket robbery there.

    Brady was 33 years old when Torrance Superior Court Judge Stephen O'Neil sentenced him to death on March 16, 1999.

    In November 1998, a jury recommended the ultimate punishment after convicting him of first-degree murder and the special circumstance allegations of murder of a peace officer, murder for the purpose of avoiding lawful arrest and the defendant has a previous murder conviction.

    In today's United States Supreme Court orders, Brady's petition for a writ of certiorari was DENIED.
