warehouse was equipped with unspecified safety equipment. the d.a. inspector testified her investigation found no sprinklers, fire alarms or illuminated exit signs. firefighters did recover one smoke detector in the rubble of the fire that killed 36 people in december, 2016. >> i don't think they made their case against derrek almena. >> reporter: next monday the defense attorneys will begin presenting their side of the case. he is expected to take stand to testify in his own defense. >> he claimed to have permits that he didn't have. >> he'll be honest. when he said for instance on a number of occasions, no one lived there. he will admit that the only reason he said it is that the landlord requested it. >> the landlord was not charged in the criminal case.

gang member, there should be a call. all five supervisors voted against changing existing policy. >> short of a warrant, our county will have no engagement with i.c.e. and will not facilitate their work. >> reporter: the emotional debate has been fueled by the murder of bambi larson who was stabbed to death in her home on friday. carlos who was illegally in this country was arrested and charged with the crime. i.c.e. says it had previously served nine detainers for him at jails where he had served time for various crimes. >> bambi larson would be lived a today if all they did was pick up the phone. >> the supervisor said the county must separate immigration law enforcement from criminal justice enforcement. >> if we have a separate rule
