People v. Zepeda, C054972

Conviction for murder, attempted murder, assaults with a semiautomatic firearm, and other gang-related charges is affirmed over claims that the trial court erred by: 1) instructing the jury with CALCRIM No. 220, an instruction defendant claimed misstated the proof beyond a reasonable doubt standard by not referring to the conviction of proof being deeply "felt"; and 2) admitting unduly prejudicial evidence in the form of two tracks from a gangster rap CD that defendant wrote.
