San Diego City Council is meeting today and on the agenda …

A modified agreement with the Tourism Marketing District or TMD and a mellower immigration reform referendum.

The TMD deal hit the spotlight when Mayor Filner refused to sign the agreement unless the contract was changed. After lots of political infighting some changes were made and it looks like the agreement will go though.

Last week some on the City Council tried to pass the immigration reform referendum but others on the council didn’t like the language. So some changes were made and it is back in chamber today too.

And in court today

The arraignment for the Marine accused of murdering a Navy veteran and leaving his body tucked in a sleeping bag in the back seat of an SUV parked near a grocery store.

And sentencing for Jesus Arteaga Garcia for the murder of his pregnant estranged wife in front of her 4 and 6 year-old children

Fugitive kidnapping suspect charged with sexual assault


Prosecutors filed nearly three dozen sexual assault charges Wednesday against a man wanted by police in connection with last week’s abduction of a 10-year-old Northridge girl.

Tobias Dustin Summers, 32, faces additional charges of kidnapping and first-degree burglary, the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office said. If convicted, he faces multiple life terms in prison.

Summers remains at large. Authorities said this week they had broadened their search to San Diego.

Also Wednesday, prosecutors charged a secondary suspect in connection with the case. Daniel Martinez, 29, was charged Wednesday with felony counts of kidnapping a minor under the age of 14 and first-degree burglary, prosecutors said.

Martinez, who was arrested Sunday about two miles from the girl’s home, was scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday afternoon. If convicted, he faces up to 12 years in prison.

Law enforcement sources told The Times the March 27 incident was believed to have begun…

YUCAIPA, Calif. (KTLA) — Funeral services are still pending for Jeremiah MacKay, the San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputy killed in the final gun battle with Christopher Dorner.

Feds: Dorner May Have Fled to Mexico, May Have Accomplice

Feds: Dorner May Have Fled to Mexico, May Have Accomplice


LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — Is triple murder suspect Christopher Dorner hiding in Mexico? And does he have an accomplice who helped him make his escape?

Police said at a news conference on Tuesday morning that they are now investigating over 1,000 clues, and the investigation is going in many directions.

They’ve seen about a 400 percent increase in tips since the $1 million reward was announced, Lt. Andy Neiman said.

“It is frustrating and we’re hopeful that something will break loose from the public and that these investigative leads will result in something positive in terms of bringing this to a conclusion,” he added.

The search for Dorner, a former LAPD officer and Navy Reserve lieutenant, is now in its sixth day.

One theory about where Dorner could be is that he may have fled to Mexico.

That comes from an affidavit filed by an inspector with the U.S. Marshals…

AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for February 11, 2013


Former LAPD officer Christopher Jordan Dorner is still being sought by police today. Over the weekend there were many supposed sightings of him in San Diego … One reported sighting even brought out San Diego’s SWAT team. Also over the weekend a one million dollar reward was offered for information leading to the capture of Dorner. Authorities believe Dorner killed three people and is seeking vengeance against the LAPD. And at least 50 LAPD officers and their families are being protected from Dorner’s possible vengeance today.

A 12-year-old boy threatened to shoot his teach and classmates in an email on Friday night. Authorities say the boy sent the email to a school administrator at Twin Peaks Middle School threatening to shoot the teacher and 23 students this morning. The email also talked about guns and 3000 rounds of ammunition. Sheriff’s Deputies arrested the boy and searched his home at which they found many rifles and handguns. However authorities do say that the boy did NOT have access to the weapons. The boy was admitted to a hospital for evaluation.

And this morning the fiber glass statue depicting the world famous Alfred Eisenstaedt photograph V-J Day will be replaced with a permanent one. A crane will be dropping the statue into place at around 7 AM next to the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum along San Diego’s Harbor Drive. The official dedication will happen on February 16th.

“First reaction was what the hell is this doing there?” said Yahyai.

At the time the manhunt for Christopher Dorner hadn’t started, so employees didn’t know who the items belonged to.

“The owner [of the business] showed up,” said Yahyai. “And basically both of us we walked across the street to the police station and turned it in.”

Yahyai said it didn’t take long for investigators to make the connection.

“Next day two detectives showed up here,” said Yahyai. “And they explained to me that it was a murder case and basically asked me if I had touched the…
