The victim of an execution-style murder managed to crawl to his apartment manager's office and name his attacker moments before he died, a prosecutor said Wednesday. Manuel Abreu, 32, told manager Gloria Mendez that "Danny did it," Deputy Dist. Atty. Susan M. Speer said during opening statements in Van Nuys Superior Court. Speer said Mendez knew "Danny" to be Bertulfo Marin Loaiza, whose trial on two counts of first-degree murder began this week.
