Marin County’s district attorney said he wants the state to strengthen laws that address people who disguise replica guns and rifles to look like the real ones—an effort resulting from the recent confrontation between sheriff’s deputies and a 12-year-old boy.
Authorities in Marin took in several dozen guns over the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday – even though the gun owners received nothing in return for their participation in the county’s latest gun surrender program, which took place Monday at the Mill Valley Police Department.
The turnout ended up being so big that county officials actually ran out of money within hours, having to hand out vouchers instead.
Two Nevada Department of Public Safety officers testified Wednesday morning that they found cash, guns, mannequins dressed in nylons, and a diary documenting sexual assaults when they searched accused serial killer Joseph Naso’s Reno home in 2010.
Prosecutors began detailing their case Tuesday against a suspected serial killer charged in the decades-old slayings of four women from the Bay Area and other parts of Northern California with matching initials.
The man charged with killing four Northern California women who had matching first and last initials can have a legal adviser help him defend himself.
