A former security guard at a Marina del Rey apartment complex was charged today in an amended complaint with special circumstance murder and other counts in connection with the killing of his supervisor, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Deputy District Attorney Keri Modder said Byron Keith Street, 47 (dob 11/21/66), of Inglewood, is charged with one count of murder with a special circumstance allegation of murder during the course of a burglary.

Street is scheduled to be arraigned tomorrow at 8:30 a.m. in Department 142 of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Airport Branch.

Case SA086128 alleges that the defendant personally and intentionally discharged a firearm, a handgun, which caused great bodily injury and death to the victim. Today, prosecutors also filed one count of first-degree residential burglary and three counts of vandalism over $400 damage.

Street and his girlfriend, Ann Una Bailey, 23 (dob 06/20/90), also of Inglewood, originally were charged on Jan. 3 and pleaded not guilty to one count each of false personation and five counts of theft. Street also faces a single count of counterfeit seal.

Street, a former security guard at an apartment complex on the 4200 block of Via Marina Drive in Marina del Rey, is alleged to have killed Patrick Odoi-Kyene on Dec. 30, 2013. The defendant had previously been suspended by Odoi-Kyene, his immediate supervisor, for bringing his girlfriend to work.

Street is being held without bail. Bailey is being held under $150,000 bail. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the case.
