Ex-pro baseball player, Brandon Willie Martin who once played for the Tampa Bay Rays is facing homicide charges for killing his dad, uncle and an innocent bystander.
Martin has just been convicted of triple homicide in the 2015 murders of his three victims. At the time, Martin made a trip to Corona, California, where he attacked his father with a baseball bat, killed an ADT alarm installer, and beat his uncle—who was trying to stop the attack on Martin’s father—to death.
Martin is reportedly facing death penalty charges, but his lawyer is leaning towards a mental illness defense. Court documents in the case say that Martin had a “racially charged” dislike for his father.
