A woman is facing capital murder charges for the slayings of three people earlier this week in Leimert Park, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Nancy Amelia Jackson (7/7/62) was charged in case BA468363 with three counts of murder along with the special circumstance allegation of multiple murders, making her eligible for the death penalty. She is expected to be arraigned today in Department 30 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center.

Deputy District Attorney Victor Avila of the Major Crimes Division is prosecuting the case.

On May 21, Jackson is accused of killing Phillip White, 65, William Carter, 79, and Orsie Carter, 83, in a home in the 3900 block of South Bronson Avenue. The defendant was an acquaintance of White and had been staying at the house, the prosecutor said. The victims’ bodies were found the following day.

She faces the death penalty or life in state prison without the possibility of parole if convicted as charged. A decision on whether to seek capital punishment in this case will be made at a later date.

The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department.
