2 Women Charged in Death of Kim Pham Appear in Court

Two women charged in the death of 23-year-old Kim Pham, who was beaten Jan. 18 outside a nightclub in Santa Ana, appeared in court in Westminster Monday.

Candace Brito, 27, and Vanesa Zavala, 25, appeared at a preliminary hearing as Pham’s family member wore buttons with the victim’s likeness. Both women had pleaded not guilty to murder.

During morning testimony, a medical examiner gave graphic testimony on Pham’s injuries, and a responding police officer described witnesses’ statements about the fight.
