Suspected Serial Killer in Jail; Hearing Set For September in San Joaquin County

San Joaquin, CA: A man facing allegations of multiple murders in Northern California appeared in a San Joaquin County courtroom on Monday morning.

Wesley Brownlee allegedly committed a series of seven fatal shootings spanning 18 months. The shootings occurred in various locations, ranging from Stockton to Oakland.

Brownlee is also being charged with attempted murder for allegedly shooting and injuring the sole survivor of the shooting incident.

During the additional arraignment on January 29, Brownlee’s legal team expressed their concerns to the court, stating that they anticipate identity being a significant factor in this case.

According to his counsel, there are concerns about the difficulty of finding a suitable jury and how Brownee’s current appearance is perceived by the public. All media were requested to leave the courtroom. The request has been rejected.

Currently, Brownlee’s representation stated that they lack the necessary data and do not currently have an expert in firearms.

If Brownlee is found guilty of all charges, he could potentially be classified as a serial killer.

A potential hearing for evidence may be arranged as soon as the summer of 2024, but it is more probable that it will be scheduled for early fall of 2024.

If Brownlee is convicted of all charges, he may be subject to the most severe punishment. A status conference has been scheduled for March 18. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for September 4th, 5th, and 6th at 9 a.m.
