When backup arrives, the officer (whose name was not released by MPD) says he “only wanted one [car for backup].” He claims that Brown got “right up in my face.” Several officers surround Brown. One angrily tells him to get his hand out of his pocket. When Brown points out that his hands are full, the officer wrenches Brown’s hand out, and a group of officers wrestle him to the ground and tase him. Brown can be heard groaning in anguish after an officer shouts “Taser! Taser! Taser!”

New York, NY {PUBLISHED: March 6, 2017 at 12:50 pm | UPDATED: August 24, 2017 at 01:53 am} -- The New York health department alerted doctors to the case of a newborn who fell ill after undergoing the ultra-Orthodox Jewish practice in which the circumcision wound is cleaned by the Rabbi's mouth. The baby boy was rushed to hospital when he developed herpes following the controversial ancient circumcision ritual. A rash is said to have spread across the child’s genitals, buttocks, inner thighs and ankle two weeks after the procedure. An estimated 3,000 babies are circumcised each year using the method in New York City. NYC is home to the largest Jewish population outside Israel. There have been six cases of herpes among children who have had the ritual known as metzitzah b’peh performed on them since February 2015. Of the six previously undisclosed cases, two occurred last year and three in 2015. Herpes, a highly contagious viral disease which can cause blisters and ulcers. Herpes is more severe in newborn babies as their immune systems are not fully developed. Since 2000, there have been 24 cases of infant herpes linked to circumcision, leading to two deaths and two cases of brain damage.

Oakland, CA (WCJB) ~ United States -- A sex scandal involving Oakland police officers and a then underage girl has all the makings of a TV thriller. The saga is full of twists and turns. The scandal erupted months after Officer Brendan O'Brien committed suicide. O'Brien left a note spilling the details, including names. Three Oakland officers were placed on paid leave. A source said O'Brien in his suicide note confessed to exchanging messages with a young woman who goes by the name Celeste Guap. However, the note says he did not have sexual contact with her. The same sources said she has met multiple officers. In the note, O'Brien named the officers, including one sergeant, involved in the alleged sexual misconduct with Guap. Guap is the daughter of a Oakland police dispatcher. The police investigation will look at whether Guap was under age during some of the encounters with officers. (Click here for video)

New Orleans, LA (WCJB) ~ United States -- On September 4, 2005, New Orleans police received a call from an officer at Danziger Bridge reporting gunfire. Several NOPD officers—including Sgt. Kenneth Bowen, Sgt. Robert Gisevius, Officer Anthony Villavaso, and Officer Robert Faulcon—arrived at the scene in a Budget rental truck. They proceeded to open fire with assault rifles and a shotgun on an unarmed family, the Bartholomews, who had been walking to a grocery store and were then sheltering behind a concrete barrier. 17-year-old James Brissette—a family friend—was killed, and four other people were wounded. The police shooters stated that while approaching the bridge, they had been fired on by civilians, and were forced to return fire. Homicide detective Arthur "Archie" Kaufman was made the lead investigator on the case. He was later found guilty of conspiring with the defendants to conceal evidence in order to make the shootings appear justified, including fabricating information for his official reports on the case. NOPD lieutenant Michael Lohman also encouraged the officers to "provide false stories about what had precipitated the shooting" and plant a firearm near the scene. (Click here for video)

Aiken, S.C. (WCJB) ~ United States -- A horrifying new dashcam video shows at least one white member of the Aiken, S.C. Police Department search inside a black man’s rectum for the apparent crime of being a passenger in a car with paper tags, which, it bears noting, is not a crime in the state of South Carolina. Driving a car with paper tags isn’t illegal either, as long as they aren’t expired. The car belonged to a woman named Lakeya Hicks, who had the paper tags because she had recently purchased the vehicle. Hicks’ tags weren’t expired, and a check on her license came up clean. However, the cops didn’t let her go. (Click here for video)

Pink housing projects in the East New York section of Brooklyn. Jury selection in the case was completed last week. Gurley died more than 14 months ago, on November 20, 2014, as two cops were making a “vertical patrol,” checking the stairwells in the high-rise building. As Brooklyn Assistant District Attorney Marc Fliedner put it, opening the prosecution’s case, “Akai Gurley is dead today because he crossed paths with Peter Liang.” Liang was indicted by a Brooklyn grand jury on manslaughter and other charges last February, and both prosecution and defense agree on the immediate events that led to Gurley’s death.(Click here for video)

Chicago, IL -- Surveillance video (Click here for video) in connection with a Chicago police officer's fatally shooting 17-year-old Cedrick Chatman was released today by attorneys for the teen's family. A federal judge ordered the release of footage showing the 2013 shooting today after the city withdrew its objection to its being made public. Chicago police officer Kevin Fry fatally shot Chatman Jan. 7, 2013, in broad daylight during a foot chase, according to court records. Chatman’s family had fought for the video to be released as part of a wrongful death lawsuit they filed over the shooting against the city, Fry and Chicago police officer Lou Toth, who pursued Chatman along with Fry during the foot chase. Family members have argued the video will counter the city and police’s narrative that the 17-year-old was a danger to police. IPRA concluded the officers' actions were justified because they reasonably believed Chatman was armed at the time.

The undercover cop was identified as Winston McDonald, who testified in court that Duplan allegedly flashed a switchblade at him outside of the store, and said, "Give me your money or I will stab you," according to court papers.

Miami, FL ~ USA -- A Florida jury began weighing on Tuesday whether a man who killed his wife and posted a photo of her blood-spattered, lifeless body on Facebook committed first-degree murder. Attorneys for Derek Medina, 33, argued that he was acting in self-defense when he fired eight shots at Jennifer Alfonso, 27, in the kitchen of their Miami-area residence. The August 2013 shooting followed a fight in which she had threatened to leave, prosecutors said during closing statements. They argued that Medina retrieved a .380-caliber pistol from his bedroom and pulled the trigger repeatedly in a premeditated act of murder. "Every single shot hit her because he was aiming and he wanted her dead," said Assistant State Attorney Leah Klein in Miami-Dade County circuit court. Medina wrote on Facebook shortly before turning himself in: "I'm going to prison or death sentence for killing my wife. My wife was punching me, and I am not going to stand any more with the abuse so I did what I did," he added in the post. (Click here for video)

Colerain Township, Ohio -- Jeffrey Hawkins, 57, is charged with shooting and killing his 59-year-old wife, JoAnn Hawkins in Ohio. He is also a former Chicago-area police officer who left a suburban department amid an investigation into alleged use of excessive force. Hawkins worked as a police officer in Elk Grove Village from 1990 to 1999. Elk Grove Village Police Chief Stephen Schmidt confirmed this fact. Hawkins was a sergeant when he resigned. He resigned after the department launched an investigation into a complaint that he used unnecessary force during an arrest. Hawkins began working as a security officer at the Field Museum in 1999. Hawkins was employed there until 2003. Hawkins identifies himself on social media as a public safety and security professional who received police training in Chicago.

Police in Colerain Township, Ohio, said Hawkins called 911 on Monday morning. The dispatcher asked what she could help him with. He replied calmly: "I just shot and killed my wife." The dispatcher if he was still armed. He replied: "It's [the gun] on the sink. I'm not a threat to anybody. I'm a former police officer." He told the dispatcher he would wait for police on his front stoop.

His composure cracked after the dispatcher asked him what exactly had happened. He said he had called police Saturday. Saturday was the day of his birthday. He said money was taken from the account he and his wife shared while he was away. Hawkins said his wife wouldn't explain why the money was missing. He continued saying: "She just kept saying, 'Talk to my lawyer.' And I don't know, it just happened." He shot her multiple times with a .40-caliber handgun. At this point Hawkins started choking up. The dispatcher urged him to stay calm. He then said: "God forgive me." Hawkins then said that he heard sirens. He then surrendered to authorities.

A spokesman for Colerain Police Department said police had been called to the couple's Appletree Court home Saturday. Hawkins allegedly slashed the tires of his wife's car. Love said the couple had been married about 10 years. They lived in the home for many years but that police had not been called to the residence.

It's not the first time Hawkins has been on the other side of the law since giving up police work. Hawkins was charged in DuPage County with molesting a female relative who was under the age of 18 in 2003. According to court documents, a charge of aggravated criminal sexual abuse in that case was later dropped. Court records show Hawkins pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery. He was sentenced to two months of probation. Hawkins filed a petition to seal the conviction last year. Prosecutors objected and a judge denied the request.

Hawkins has been charged with murder in his wife's death. A Hamilton County judge set bail at $3 million Tuesday. A grand jury action is pending next week. A phone message was left for his attorney.

JoAnn Hawkins' ex-husband asked not to be named. He said he and the sons he had with Hawkins were grieving her "horrific" slaying. He said they didn't immediately want to comment. A visitation and memorial service were planned for her in suburban Cincinnati Friday.

UPPER MARLBORO, Md. -- A Maryland jury has convicted a District of Columbia police officer of killing his mistress and leaving their baby daughter to die in hot car. The Prince George's County jury returned the verdict Thursday evening against Richmond Phillips on two counts of first-degree murder.

Phillips was arrested in June 2011 after police found the body of 20-year-old Wynetta Wright in the Oxon Run Stream Valley Park. Her 1-year-old daughter, Jaylin, was found dead nearby in a car seat in Wright's car. Police say the girl may have died as a result of exposure to the heat. Court records show Phillips and Wright were involved in a paternity dispute.

Prosecutors say Phillips faces life without the possibility of parole plus 20 years at sentencing March 22.

Posted: January 16, 2013 3:36 PM - Updated: January 17, 2013 12:36 PM PST

(Jaylin Wright, pictured center)

Upper Marlboro, Md. (WCJB) -- A second reported mistress of Richmond Phillips came forth to testify Wednesday in the murder trial of the married D.C. police officer accused of killing his first mistress and their 11-month-old daughter.

Kimberly Everett testified on the third day of Phillips' trial in Prince George's County Circuit Court, the Washington Post reported. She said she began sleeping with Phillips around February 2010 while she was an administrative assistant for the D.C. police, not knowing he was married.

Phillips, 40, is now facing two counts of first-degree murder and related charges in the May 2011 deaths of 20-year-old Wynetta Wright and their daughter, Jaylin Wright.

Everett testified that she saw a "small caliber" gun strapped to his left ankle when she was naked with him in a hotel room, the Post reported. She said the gun was not his police-issued weapon.

Prosecutors believe that the gun was the same .22-caliber gun Phillps used to fatally shoot Wynetta Wright and then drive her SUV with Jaylin still inside to a nearby apartment complex where he left the baby in the vehicle to die, according the Post. A heat advisory was in effect that day, and temperatures inside the car reached 125 degrees, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said Phillips committed the crimes because he was facing a paternity lawsuit and didn't want to pay child support for a child he fathered out of wedlock, CBS DC reported. A defense lawyer countered that his client "didn't do this thing" and there wasn't evidence for a conviction.

June 3, 2011 @ 11:10 AM PDT

A D.C. police officer and the father of 1-year-old Jaylin Wright has been charged with at least one count of first-degree murder in connection with the death of the infant and her mother, 20-year-old Wynetta Wright. The suspect, 39-year-old Richmond Phillips, has been a vice detective with the Metropolitan Police Department since 2003. Police say that Wynetta was found lying in Oxon Run Stream Valley Park in the 2300 block of Oxon Run Drive on Thursday. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Shortly thereafter, Jaylin was found abandoned and dead in a vehicle in the 2400 block of Southern Avenue. Authorities are saying that they're waiting for the results of an autopsy on Jaylin before possibly charging him with the murder of his infant daughter.

(Wynetta Wright, pictured center) Phillips is apparently married to another woman and already has a 12-year-old daughter.

D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier called the homicides a "horrific crime." "As we have seen all too often, domestic violence has its impact on the most innocent victims," Lanier said in a statement. Police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump says that Phillips police powers have been revoked. A large number of police officers were investigating at the two locations along the border between D.C. and Prince George’s County in connection with the case. Police say Wright was last seen in the 2900 block of Oxon Run Drive on Monday, May 30th. Wright's mother told police that Jaylin's father had called Wynetta and asked her to meet him at the community center around 10 p.m. Monday. She says Wynetta and the child's father were scheduled to attend a custody hearing the next day. Wright's green Saturn SUV was recovered in a parking lot near the intersection of 24th Street SE and Southern Avenue. Authorities say it's unclear if either body was found inside Wright's vehicle.

Police are searching for evidence at the Hillcrest Heights Community Center, which is about half a mile from where Wright's vehicle was recovered. Wright had been a member of the Prince George's Sheriff Explorer program and wanted to become a deputy in the department, a sheriff's office spokesperson says. She was planning on applying to the academy.

CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. — Former Franklin County deputy Jonathan Agee has asked that his capital murder court case in Montgomery County be moved from March 4 to Tuesday so that he can enter a no contest plea, according to the Montgomery County Commonwealth’s Attorney Office.

The Montgomery County charges stem from a shootout with state trooper Matthew Brannock Agee is accused of getting into on Interstate 81 on Memorial Day 2011. In Montgomery County, Agee is charged with attempted capital murder, aggravated malicious wounding, use of a firearm in commission of a felony, and felony eluding.

Agee recently entered a no contest plea to murder charges in Roanoke City Court. He was facing murder charges in Roanoke for killing his ex-wife prior to the shootout on I-81 in Montgomery County.

ROANOKE, Va. (WCJB) -- A Franklin County sheriff's deputy has been served with a murder warrant charging him in the shooting death of his former wife. Media outlets report Roanoke police served 32-year-old Jonathan Agee on Friday at his bed at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital. He was hospitalized Monday after being shot in an Interstate 81 standoff with state troopers following the death of 30-year-old Jennifer Agee. Jennifer Agee was shot at a Roanoke convenience store. A search warrant issued earlier this week says Jonathan Agee found out his ex-wife told his new wife the former couple still had an ongoing relationship.

FRANKLIN COUNTY, VIRGINIA - Thousands of people are called for the resignation of Franklin County Sheriff Ewell Hunt. There's a petition to have him removed from office. Someone also started a Facebook page called "Sheriff Ewell Hunt Must Resign." Soon after news broke that Franklin County Sheriff Ewell Hunt knew of Deputy Jonathan Agee's plan to kill his ex-wife - Jennifer Louise Carter Agee -residents went to the Internet in an uproar. The Sheriff claimed to have taken action that day to intervene, like a specific phone call, but the released call does not reflect the sheriff's claim. The dispatcher radio log reflects that the sheriff actually prevented a BOL (Be On The Lookout) from being issued prior to the shooting. After Jennifer was fatally shot, Deputy Agee also shot and wounded Virginia State Trooper Sgt. Matt Brannock.

A county sheriff's deputy killed his ex-wife in a convenience store parking lot Monday, then shot a Virginia state trooper before being seriously wounded himself, police said. Roanoke Police Chief Chris Perkins told reporters Monday that a murder warrant has been received for Jonathan Agee, who is now at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital after suffering multiple gunshot wounds following a shootout with a pair of Virginia state police officers.

The bloodshed began at 11:30 a.m., when Jennifer Agee, 30, pulled into a Sheetz convenience store parking lot in Roanoke, Virginia, Perkins said. Trailing behind her in a marked Franklin County sheriff's office car was her ex-husband, Jonathan Agee. The 32-year-old sheriff's deputy from Boones Mill was off-duty at the time. Perkins said that Agee and his ex-wife both got out of their cars. Jonathan Agee then shot Jennifer Agee, while another person believed to be a child sat in her vehicle, according to the police chief. Jennifer Agee, who lived in Salem, was then taken to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital where she died, Perkins said. Almost immediately afterward, police issued an alert asking authorities to look out for Agee's sheriff's office vehicle.

Virginia State Police Superintendent Steven Flaherty said that Sgt. Matt Brannock spotted the marked car on Route 460 and followed it. At about 11:48 a.m., the two vehicles stopped at the Ironto exit ramp off I-81 ramp in Montgomery County. There, Jonathan Agee opened fire and shot Brannock "at least once," Flaherty said. Two other state police officers soon arrived at the scene, exchanging fire with Agee. They subdued the suspect after shooting him "several times," Flaherty said.

Both Brannock, a 35-year-old U.S. Air Force veteran who joined the state police force 13 years ago, and Agee were flown by helicopter to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital. Police said the suspect's injuries are considered life-threatening, but those suffered by the state trooper are not.

This incident tied up Memorial Day traffic in parts of western Virginia, after authorities closed several lanes on I-81 northbound to give them more space to conduct their investigation. Those lanes reopened shortly before 7 p.m., said Virginia State Police spokewoman Corinne Geller. But in the subsequent hours, traffic still moved slowly through Montgomery County due to the earlier back-up and influx of holiday travelers.

Green-on-Blue Homicide!

Posted: December 27, 2012 - Updated: December 30, 2012 09:11 PM PST

Wauwatosa, Wisconsin -- A decorated Marine has been arrested in connection with the shooting death of his police officer wife while she was on patrol during Christmas eve, officials said today. Authorities released little information on her killing, but said that her husband, Benjamin Sebena, is in custody at the Milwaukee County Jail. He is being held on a tentative charge of first-degree intentional homicide, but has not been formally charged, officials said. "He is in custody, and we're waiting on paperwork to be brought down to this office," said Mia Williams, clerical assistant at Milwaukee's District Attorney's Office.

Ben Sebena is a "decorated U.S. Marine who served two tours in Iraq before suffering severe arm and leg injuries in a mortar attack," according to media sources. The body of Officer Jennifer Sebena, 30, was found by fellow officers of the Wauwatosa, Wisc., police department after she failed to respond to radio calls. She was shot several times, police said. Officer Sebena had served on the force for two years. Her funeral is scheduled for Saturday.

"She was a devoted, intelligent and highly-skilled professional who served our community with kindness, care and concern," Wauwatosa Police Department said in a statement. "It is the first time in the 96-year history of the Wauwatosa Police Department we have lost an officer on-duty."

Philadelphia police officers fired for major violations of departmental rules have sometimes been reinstated by arbitrators who would not act without a conviction in criminal court, according to a review of 42 cases reached over the last decade. The cases involve officers disciplined by the department for drunken driving, assault, insubordination, and other infractions. Punishment sought by police supervisors ranged from a day's suspension to termination.

The decisions by arbitrators, released by Common Pleas Court on Thursday, shed light on the police union grievance system, a process long hidden from public view. In one instance, an officer charged with attempted rape and assault was dismissed from the force in 2002. In 2005, his criminal case was "withdrawn" by prosecutors after 12 postponements. The officer was then ordered reinstated in 2006, with full back pay, because he had not been found guilty.

The collective bargaining agreement between city and the Fraternal Order of Police does not require a conviction for an officer to be discharged from the force. The 42 cases were ordered released by Judge Paul P. Panepinto after a lengthy legal battle by local media sources. They are among about 200 cases being made available to the media under Pennsylvania's Right to Know Act. Of the 42 decisions released Thursday, arbitrators favored police officers in 22 and the city in 10. There were 10 split decisions. In seven of the cases, the department moved to dismiss officers charged with crimes, including attempted rape, theft, stalking, domestic violence, and assault. In two of those cases, officers were convicted and their discharges upheld by arbitrators. In the others, arbitrators cited the lack of criminal convictions, among other reasons, for ordering the city to rehire the officers. Typically, they also granted the officers back pay.

The release of the cases was opposed by the FOP, which argued in court that they included "highly inflammatory and scandalous allegations" that would damage the officers' reputations. Philadelphia FOP lodge president John McNesby on Friday did not return a call and e-mail seeking comment.

The arbitration hearings are court like sessions in which both sides - the city and lawyers for the union - can call witnesses. Typically, it takes years to reach a final decision. The findings released so far include details involving police and prosecutors that are little known or seldom discussed. For example, one report by an arbitrator reveals that in 2006, the District Attorney's Office had "a list of officers banned by the D.A. from testifying in court."

In a 2004 case, an arbitrator wrote that some officers worked for a "low solvability squad" - a unit assigned cases that had few facts and apparently little chance of being cracked. Some police called the unit the "dead squad," a term higher-ranking officers disliked.

In 2006 an arbitrator ordered the police to rehire Brian J. Zaleski, 34, who in 2002 was suspended with intent to terminate. A police spokesman could not immediately say Friday if he returned to the force. Zaleski was not listed on the 2009 city payroll, and he could not be reached by telephone. Zaleski was discharged after an internal police investigation found he had assaulted his girlfriend. He was charged with five counts each of simple assault and recklessly endangering another person, and single counts of attempted rape, attempted sexual assault, indecent assault, false imprisonment, and unlawful restraint. But charges were withdrawn after 12 continuances in Municipal Court, 11 of them sought by his attorney and none opposed by prosecutors, according to the arbitrator's report and court records.

Zaleski filed a grievance to get his job back, and asked for documents outlining the department's charges against him. The city never provided the paperwork. The arbitrator, Jeffrey B. Tener, wrote that he had "sympathy for the position of the FOP and stated that the failure to provide requested documents in advance prevented the FOP from having a fair opportunity to prepare its case." After negotiations, city attorneys "agreed to reinstate Zaleski and to provide back pay" dating to when charges were withdrawn in 2005.

Tener ruled that Zaleski was entitled to back pay, seniority, lost overtime, and health insurance contributions dating back to 2002. "He was as innocent on the day he was arrested as the day he was acquitted," Tener wrote, referring to the withdrawn charges. "He has struggled financially the last three-plus years to make ends meet through no fault of his own." Tener said the city's failure to provide documents for the arbitration hearing was unsurprising. "This is said to be the fourth time that this has occurred in past three months or so," he wrote.

The cases were more straightforward in the two instances in which arbitrators upheld the firing of the officers.

Kim Bacone, who joined the force in 1996, was caught on tape shoplifting at Cherry Hill Mall in 2000 and given notice she was being dismissed. Bacone filed a grievance against her firing, and a hearing was held over three days in 2003 and 2004. In 2005 an arbitrator upheld her firing for "conduct unbecoming of an officer" because of her "proven shoplifting."

Robert J. O'Brien III was dismissed in 2003 after police found he had pointed a loaded gun at an Explorer Scout in 2002. The incident resulted in a "criminal conviction," the arbitrator said, which was grounds for upholding the dismissal.
A Philadelphia police officer was arrested over the weekend on assault charges stemming from an argument with his girlfriend, police said. Deric Lewis, 30, joined the department four years ago, and was most recently assigned to the 22nd District. He was charged Saturday with simple assault, terroristic threats and recklessly endangering another person. Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey has suspended him with the intent to dismiss. Lewis is the 16th city police officer to be arrested since March 2009.

Caged Fury!

February 1, 2011

MONROE, Wash. - A female officer was found dead in the chapel at the Monroe Correctional Complex on Saturday night. Officer Jayme Biendl, 34, of Granite Falls, was an eight-year veteran at Monroe and was the 2008 officer of the year. It's believed that she was strangled by Byron Scherf, a three strikes inmate serving a life sentence for rape and assault. "This is the saddest day of my career," said Superintendent Scott Frakes.

Frakes says Biendl was solely in charge of securing the chapel. After service Saturday night, at about 9:14 p.m., the inmates were counted in their cells. Scherf was missing. Three minutes later, at 9:17, Scherf was found in the chapel lobby. He said he was trying to escape. It wasn't until 10:25 p.m. that Biendl's body was discovered inside the chapel. "We're trying to determine what is it about our processes to not immediately say where is Officer Biendl?" said Frakes.

One of Biendl's friends said she often talked about being overwhelmed in the chapel. "I just can't see how you can have someone working alone as isolated as she was," he said. Brian Hasenyager, who lived across the street from Biendl in Granite Falls and also works as a corrections officer in Monroe, echoed those concerns. "She complained to me about the fact that she's on a single post by herself," Hasenyager said. Hasenyager learned about Biendl's death when he arrived at work Sunday morning. "She fought for her life in prison," he said. "From what I heard, the convict had bite marks and scratch marks up and down his arms." Hasenyager called Biendl the best neighbor he ever had.

The superintendent says Biendl was not armed. He says she never talked about feeling unsafe. "The only thing she would consistently say to me is that she had a lot of ground to cover," he said. Union Secretary Tracey Thompson believes this is a wake-up call for the Department of Corrections. She says the DOC could have prevented this. "It's getting more and more unsafe, with reductions in staffing, freezes on hiring, it's becoming a ridiculously unsafe place," she said.

Gov. Chris Gregoire issued a statement Sunday saying she had asked Department of Corrections Secretary Eldon Vail to thoroughly review the incident and look at the safeguards in place at the Monroe complex. "This young woman was devoted to an agency that works around the clock to ensure our communities are safe, which makes her death all the more tragic. I ask all Washingtonians to join me in keeping her loved ones in our thoughts and prayers," Gregoire said. Scherf has been isolated in a segregation unit. He has not made a statement and has asked for a lawyer.

Paul R. Kovacich Jr.

Updated: April 24, 2009:

Placer County, CA -- Former deputy Paul Kovacich was sentenced Friday to 27 years to life for various charges in connection with his wife's death. In January, a jury found Paul Kovacich Jr. guilty of murder, along with an enhancement for a weapons charge. Kovacich was accused of shooting Janet Kovacich in 1982. Placer County senior deputy district attorney Suzanne Gazzaniga said Kovacich was sentenced to 25 years to life on one count of murder in the first degree. He was also sentenced to two years for an enhancement -- use of a firearm. "It was the sentence that we asked for," Gazzaniga said in a statement.

Before the sentencing, the office said, Paul Kovacich denied his guilt and disputed trial witnesses. According to the Placer County District Attorney's office, in 1995, two people walking on the dry lake bottom of Rollins Lake noticed something partially buried in the silt. It turned out to be a partial human skull that was later found to have a bullet hole in its right side. DNA tests later revealed that the skull was likely that of Janet Kovacich, the office said.

Placer County Superior Court Judge Mark S. Curry said although he hadn't heard of Paul Kovacich or the case before he received the trial, he said that after hearing all of the evidence, "I too was convinced that this gentleman murdered his wife." At the time of his wife's disappearance, Paul Kovacich was a sergeant assigned to the Placer County Jail.

January 27, 2009

All through the years, Paul R. Kovacich Jr. maintained he knew nothing about his wife's disappearance in 1982. For most of that time, he refused to discuss the case – except to argue in legal filings that Janet Kovacich wasn't really dead, even though no one had seen her since she vanished from the couple's Auburn home Sept. 8, 1982, following an argument with her husband. On Tuesday, [January 27, 2009] a Placer County jury decided Kovacich, a Placer County sheriff's sergeant at the time of the disappearance, had been lying all along and convicted him of first-degree murder.

"It's a 26-year-old case, and I am absolutely overjoyed that the jury saw what people in the community had known for years," said David Tellman, the 41-year-old prosecutor who took over the case in 2008 after fellow prosecutor Daniel Gong became ill. Kovacich, 60, who was indicted in 2006, faces 25 years to life in prison for a crime that many thought would never be solved. He made no outward sign of emotion when the verdict was read, other than bowing his head slightly, said a reporter who had covered the case and sat through parts of the trial.

The conviction came after four months of trial, 77 witnesses and 750 exhibits. Kovacich never took the stand in the case, which relied largely on circumstantial evidence.

The 12 jurors left through a side door as court wrapped up, and Kovacich was handcuffed and taken to jail pending his next hearing. But an alternate juror, Beverly Copren, told a reporter afterward that she agreed with the verdict and that the extremely complicated threads of evidence had been tied together neatly during Tellman's closing argument.

Tellman was not present for the verdict; he was on a family vacation at Disneyland. But co-prosecutor Suzanne Gazzaniga and investigator Noah Brommeland were in court.

Kovacich's Defense attorney indicated that he would seek a dismissal of the verdict, and a hearing for that motion was set for Feb. 20, 2009 by Judge Mark S. Curry.

For part of the trial, Kovacich's daughter, Kristi, who was 7 at the time of her mother's disappearance, waited to testify. She took the stand in the final days of the trial but was not present Tuesday.

Janet Kovacich's older brother Gary Gregoire had testified for the prosecution and said from his Colorado home Tuesday that he was "very happy that we've got justice for Janet." He declined to speak further, saying he was not certain whether he remained under a gag order imposed by the court in 2006.

The verdict ends a mystery that has haunted authorities since Janet Kovacich, then 27and the mother of two young children, disappeared. At the time, Paul Kovacich claimed he and his wife had been discussing a separation, and that he left the home after an argument. The two children said they last saw their mother when they left for school at 8 a.m. Kovacich would later tell Auburn police detectives that when he returned to the home around noon she was gone. But his behavior, especially for a law enforcement officer, seemed curious at the time. She had disappeared on a Wednesday, but Kovacich didn't mention it to anyone until Thursday, when he told a police sergeant that his wife was gone but he did not want to file a missing person report. Two days later, Kovacich called his mother-in-law and asked, "Is Janet there? I've got a couple of squalling, crying kids here."

The case dragged on, with detectives searching the Auburn home, as well as the home of Kovacich's elderly parents at one point. Kovacich remained with the Sheriff's Department until 1992. In January 1995, over his objections, a judge declared his wife dead and said she died the day of her disappearance.

The case began to come together 10 months later, when a man walking along Rollins Lake in Colfax found a partial human skull nearly buried in dry silt near a boat ramp. DNA testing about a decade later indicated that the skull probably belonged to Janet Kovacich. It had a hole behind the right ear that prosecutors believed was a bullet hole. Kovacich was charged with murder and appeared in court for his arraignment on Sept. 8, 2006, 24 years to the day after her disappearance.

During the trial, prosecutors argued that the couple's marriage was on the rocks, that there was a "preponderance of evidence of domestic violence" in their lives and that Janet Kovacich was planning to leave her abusive husband. He allegedly kicked their dog, a German shepherd, to death. Prosecutors contended he pushed her off a boat once, yanked her from a movie theater and insulted her in front of friends. "Sept. 8, 1982, was to be the first day of Janet's new life," Tellman said during the trial, adding that she had decided to move her children to a new school and had begun taking classes that summer. "She was ripped from the lives of so many people," Tellman said in his closing statement. "Only one person stood to gain so much, one person with a motive to make her disappear. And that person was the defendant Paul Kovacich."

Kovacich's defense attorney, argued that his client was not guilty. He called on the Kovacichs' now-grown daughter Kristi, and on Paul Kovacich's longtime girlfriend (also a former Placer County sheriff's deputy) as witnesses. He criticized the investigation as "slipshod," saying the prosecution relied on "rumors, innuendos and speculation." He pointed out that no murder weapon was ever found, and presented expert witnesses who testified that they could not say with certainty that the hole in the skull was formed by a bullet. And Spurling portrayed Janet Kovacich as a troubled, high-strung and emotional young woman who trusted her husband. In journal entries written the year before she disappeared, she wrote that he was a special person who always put the children first. "I am so lucky to have you to lean on and count on," she wrote.
