A Kern County Superior Court judge granted a public defender’s motion Wednesday to obtain unpublished notes created by a Californian reporter during a jailhouse interview of a co-defendant who’s accused of killing a corrections counselor at The Shops at River Walk.

This reporter interviewed co-defendant Sebastian Parra at Lerdo Justice Facility after he was indicted on first-degree murder and attempted second-degree robbery in the death of Benny Alcala Jr., 43. An article about this interview was published in The Californian in February.
