Nakahara asked his jury to put him to death for the robbery and murder of Viveiros.

Nakahara, who had dated Viveiros for a number of years, admired her father’s $20,000 gun collection and joked about stealing the guns and “doing away” with Viveiros.

Viveiros’ father found his daughter lying dead in a hallway, shot three times in the back and once below her left ear. His guns were gone, along with war memorabilia.

Nakahara, who tried to sell the guns, initially denied involvement, but later told detectives he shot Viveiros following an argument over some bad checks she deposited into his account. He admitted to taking the guns to make the shooting appear to be motivated by robbery.

During his trial, he testified against the advice of counsel, telling jurors he would choose the death penalty if it were up to him.
