Stephvon Atencio, James Dominguez-Castor busted in slaying of elderly Lakewood man (43)

Stephvon Atencio's red eyes in his booking photo suggests that he'd been crying some time before the image was snapped.

Presumably, those close to an elderly Lakewood man were shedding tears, too, but for a very different reason. The man was found dead in a trailer on Saturday -- after which Atencio, twenty, and James Cameron-Dominguez, 22, were arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder. Continue for details and lots of photos, including plenty Atencio took of himself.
