An alleged gang member has been charged with capital murder in the death of an Inglewood nightclub owner.

Prosecutors say 31-year-old Dennis Roy Brown, also known as "June Bug," shot and robbed Ester Alonzo as he pulled into his Baldwin Hills home in May 2011, after he returned home from his night club.

Brown is purportedly a member of the Rollin 20's Blood gang.

He was charged Tuesday with one count of murder.

Brown is expected to be back in court on Jan. 30.

Prosecutors say a decision on whether to seek the death penalty will be made after the preliminary hearing.
