People v. Xiong, F062474

Convictions for first degree murder and related charges are affirmed, where the evidence was sufficient to support defendant's convictions because the DNA evidence linking defendant to this case was of a 15-loci profile so rare, in terms of the total world population, that it constituted powerfully incriminating evidence, and thus, the statistical evidence was relevant and substantial.
