MARTINEZ, Calif. — The victim of an alleged gang rape at Richmond High told jurors Monday she doesn’t recall the brutal 2009

homecoming night assault and only remembers waking up with a severe headache and aching body.
The young woman, who was 16 years old the time of the attack, spoke in a soft voice and did not make eye contact with her alleged attackers in the Martinez courtroom.

She told jurors she remembered being at the homecoming dance that night, but got a headache and went outside. She denied the claims of the defendants that she drank alcohol with them.

The young woman – who stood 4-foot-11 and weighed about 95 pounds at the time of the attack — said when she regained consciousness her headache had gotten worse and her body ached from her “neck down.” She continues to have problems with her hip, the young woman told jurors.
She was expected to be on the stand at the trial of 20-year-old Marcelles Peter and 22-year-old Jose Montano at least until lunch time. The proceedings are unique in that there are two separate juries – one for each defendant — listening to the testimony.

The young woman’s father has already given gut-wrenching testimony, describing the horrifying scene as he first saw his daughter following the brutal attack.

The father talked extensively about the scene the night in October of 2009 at Richmond High School and seeing his daughter as she was being wheeled from the scene after the horrible crime. “[Her] face was distorted, ashen, gray, clammy. She appeared to me on death row. Hair was all messed up. Lots of vomit in her hair,” the father said. “[There was a] footprint on the side of her face.” The father, identified as John Doe, described seeing his daughter in the aftermath of the attack as terrifying.

“It is a horror. It’s very scary to see what I did at that point,” he said.

The case centers around who did what in the gang rape of the young woman after her homecoming dance at Richmond High.

The victim was raped repeatedly for hours by as many as 20 people. Montano and Peter were among six men charged in the crime. Two men are awaiting trial, and two others took plea deals

OAKLAND, Calif. —

Doctors believe a man accused of murdering seven people in a shooting rampage at Oakland’s Oikos University in April 2012 is still mentally incompetent to stand trial, his lawyer told a judge Monday.

One Goh, 44, didn’t attend his brief hearing in Alameda County Superior Court in Oakland because he’s still being treated at Napa State Hospital, where he was sent earlier this year after a judge ruled on Jan. 7 that he’s not competent to stand trial and suspended the legal proceedings against him.

Judge Jon Rolefson ordered that Goh return to court on Dec. 9 for another update on his mental competency.
