People v. Becerra, 065573

Capital conviction for two counts of first-degree murder is reversed where the trial court's finding that defendant forfeited his right to self-representation under Faretta v. California, 422 U.S. 806 (1975), by employing dilatory trial tactics is not supported by the record and constituted an abuse of discretion.
