Real Estate Fraud Murder Trial of Attorney David Replogle Goes to Jury

The case of San Francisco attorney David Replogle, who is accused of murder in a conspiracy worth a Hollywood movie, is now in the hands of the jury. Co-defendant Miguel Bustamante, 28, accused along Replogle of participating in the murder of Palm Springs retiree Clifford Lambert, awaits the decision of the jury as well.

San Francisco Deputy District Attorney Lisa DiMaria painted David Replogle, 61, as the mastermind in the conspiracy to “erase” Lambert, 74, who was a target because he lived alone, owned his home and other assets such as art. Craig McCarthy, who has already been convicted for his part in murdering Clifford Lambert, whose body has never been found. Along With McCarthy, Miguel Bustamente is accused of holding and stabbing Lambert on December 8, 2008. David Replogle allegedly arranged the deed and helped falsify documents in order to profit from the victim’s assets.

Still to be tried are Kaushal Niroula, David Replogle’s (former) lover and Daniel Carlos Garcia.

David Replogle could receive life in prison without the possibility of parole if he is convicted.
