Early Saturday morning, a number of Newport Beach Police officers responded to the 100 block of McFadden Place in response to several reports of a fight in the area. Two officers arriving on scene detained three men who matched the suspects’ descriptions walking northbound on McFadden Place.

After three trials, man finally sentenced to life in prison for 1981 Newport Beach murder

James Andrew Melton, 65, Los Angeles, was sentenced Thursday, April 12 to life in state prison without the possibility of parole after his third trial for the 1981 murder of a 77-year-old victim he met through a magazine ad.

Melton formulated a plan to meet and rob older, wealthy men interested in romantic encounters. In October 1981, the defendant met the victim, 77-year-old widow Anthony Desousa, through a male companionship advertisement placed in The Advocate.

On October 12, 1981, the victim agreed to pick up Melton at the Disneyland Hotel and bring him back to his residence in Newport Beach. Once inside Desousa’s home, Melton bound the victim and then beat and strangled him to death. The defendant robbed the victim and burglarized his home, taking jewelry and several personal belongings before fleeing the scene in the victim’s vehicle.

On or about October 13, 1981, the Newport Beach Police Department (NBPD) received a request for a welfare check at the victim’s residence and discovered the victim’s body.

The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) located the defendant with the victim’s vehicle and arrested Melton on October 6, 1981.

Melton was originally tried in November of 1982 and the jury convicted the defendant of burglary, robbery and first-degree murder, and found to be true the special circumstances of murder in the commission of a burglary and murder in the commission of a robbery on December 1, 1982.

On March 18, 1983, the defendant was sentenced to death. The California Supreme Court unanimously affirmed the conviction on March 3, 1988.

On January 19, 2007, United States District Judge Robert M. Takasugi granted a petition for writ of habeas corpus on the grounds that Melton was mentally incompetent at the time of his trial.

The court found that the defendant was improperly medicated with excessive doses of psychotropic drugs and as a result caused the defendant to lack a rational understanding of the proceedings against him and therefore deprived him of the ability to participate in his defense in a rational manner at trial.

On May 18, 2012, District Attorney Tony Rackauckas informed the court that the Orange County District Attorney’s Office would not be seeking death in the retrial.

On August 30, 2012, the Honorable Judge William Froeberg denied the defendant’s request to dismiss the case based upon his denial of a speedy trial.

In May of 2014, the case went to trial and resulted in a mistrial.

The case was re-assigned to the Honorable Greg L. Prickett and the defendant’s third trial began on May 14, 2017.

Thursday, Melton was found guilty of first degree murder, burglary and robbery, plus special circumstances including murder during the commission of a burglary and murder during the commission of a robbery.

His sentence is life in state prison without the possibility of parole.

Community prescription drug take-back day planned

On Saturday, April 28 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., the Newport Beach Police Department will be partnering with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) for National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day at two locations: OASIS Senior Center at 801 Narcissus Ave. (Main Entrance) and Hoag Hospital, Sunset View Parking Lot (lower campus, first left when entering from PCH), 1 Hoag Road.

This event gives the public an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by removing potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs from their homes. Anyone with medications to dispose of can bring them to either of the designated locations for quick and easy drop-off. The service is free and anonymous; no questions asked.

Medicines that are languishing in your cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. The traditional methods of disposing of unused medicines – like flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash –pose potential safety and health hazards, but National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is a safe and straightforward solution.

For additional information on this event, visit the DEA’s website at www.dea.gov.
