November 05, 1986

A Brea man was found guilty of murdering an Irvine woman and then raping her, a special circumstance for which he could face the death penalty. Robert L. Sellers, 28, admitted to authorities that he had become obsessed with Savannah Leigh Anderson, 22, who lived at an apartment complex where he was moonlighting as a security guard while serving in the Marine Corps. When she rejected his romantic overtures, Sellers said, he went into a rage and killed her in May, 1979. Orange County Superior Court Judge Robert R. Fitzgerald ordered the jury to return Nov. 12 for the penalty phase.
