Arrests made in November murders of 2 California boys

Union City police in California made an arrest in the previously unsolved murder of two juvenile boys on Friday after they were viciously gunned down, while sitting in a van outside of a school, shortly before Thanksgiving last year.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a Democrat, made the announcement alongside law enforcement, detailing the arrest of Jason Cornejo, 18, of Castro Valley, Fox 2 reported.

Police also reportedly arrested a 17-year-old boy who was not immediately identified. Both suspects were charged by the Alameda County District Attorney with the murders of Sean Withington, 14, and Kevin Hernandez, 11.

Withington and Hernandez were sitting in a van outside Searles Elementary School, 30 miles southeast of San Fransisco when the murderer opened fire on the car. Residents called 911 after hearing the shots ring out around 1:30 a.m. Police arrived to find Withington had died on the scene, while Hernandez perished in transit to the hospital.

2 CALIFORNIA BOYS, AGES 11 AND 14, KILLED IN SHOOTING OUTSIDE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

Both suspects happened to already be in custody on unrelated charges when police made the connection between them and the shooting.

Prosecutors plan to add gang enhancements and special circumstances to the case.

Authorities said the defendants were acting in connection with a street gang — a theory law enforcement was considering shortly after the killing. They did not, however, go into detail on who may have ordered the hit or what the motive was behind the killing.

Prosecutors also said a rap song was posted to the internet, praising the alleged involvement of the two defendants in the murders, according to Fox 2.

Trump slams Manchin as a ‘puppet’ – even after West Virginia Democrat signals he’s open to endorsing president

Westlake Legal Group Manchin-Trump_AP Trump slams Manchin as a 'puppet' – even after West Virginia Democrat signals he’s open to endorsing president Marisa Schultz fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc article 8040705b-c283-536e-b0c6-70d127215069

President Trump on Friday continued his assault on Sen. Joe Manchin even though the moderate Democrat signaled he wants to make peace with the president after his impeachment guilty vote.

Trump called Manchin a “puppet” for Democrat leaders — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer — while praising West Virginia’s other senator, Shelley Moore Capito, a Republican, as a “great person.”

“I was told by many that Manchin was just a puppet for Schumer & Pelosi. That’s what he is!” Trump tweeted.

VULNERABLE HOUSE DEMS SOUND ALARM ABOUT POTENTIAL SANDERS NOMINATION: ‘IT’S BAD’

Manchin, D-W.Va., did not cross party lines to vote with Republicans and found Trump guilty in the Senate impeachment trial, denying the GOP a chance to tout a bipartisan acquittal. Instead, the lone party defector of either side was Republican Sen. Mitt Romney.

Manchin, who is up for reelection in 2024, said he’s open to backing Trump for his reelection in 2020, despite believing he abused his power and obstructed Congress.

MANCHIN, SWING-STATE SENATORS SWARMED WITH DEM HUGS AFTER VOTING TO CONVICT TRUMP

“I don’t rule anything out. I really don’t rule anything out,” Manchin told Politico. “I’m always going to be for what’s best for my country. Everybody can change. Maybe the president will change, you know? Maybe that uniter will come out, versus the divider.”

Manchin said he will be more open to backing Trump if he thinks West Virginia has been better off under the president and if the Democrats nominate someone who is too out of step with his centrist beliefs.

“I hope he changes,” Manchin said of Trump. “I’m looking for that person that has heart and soul and compassion.”

Since Trump’s impeachment acquittal, the president has taken a victory lap and began exacting revenge on those he’s deemed disloyal. He’s blasted Romney and forced out Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and Ambassador Gordon Sondland, who testified in his impeachment probe.

While Trump and Manchin have forged a relationship before, the president has ridiculed him on Twitter as “Munchkin” since his impeachment vote.

Trump, who is very popular in West Virginia, campaigned against Manchin during his 2018 reelection. But Manchin forgave him immediately afterward and now hopes the president can also move on from impeachment grudges.

“It’s not different [from] when he wanted to have lunch the week after I was elected. And he said: ‘I knew we couldn’t beat you.’ And I said, ‘It wasn’t for lack of trying.’ Boom, it’s over, let it go. I did. I’m asking him to do the same thing I did,” Manchin said at the time. “He tried to remove me.”

Ticket information for Kobe Bryant memorial service announced

Westlake Legal Group Kobe-Bryant6 Ticket information for Kobe Bryant memorial service announced Mariah Haas fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/sports/nba/los-angeles-lakers fox-news/sports/nba fox-news/person/kobe-bryant fox news fnc/sports fnc article 5a866627-8d31-5bf7-afa3-3b0ab5c13499

Fans hoping to attend the Feb. 24 memorial service for Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles can now register for tickets, the Lakers announced Friday.

Tickets for the event are priced in three tiers: $24.02 each, two for $224, and $224 each — combinations of numbers that represent the No. 24 worn by Bryant over his final ten NBA seasons and the No. 2 worn by Gianna on her youth basketball team.

Proceeds from the ticket sales will benefit the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation, the Lakers said.

Ticket registration hours were scheduled from 11 a.m. Friday through 10 p.m. Monday through the Ticketmaster Verified Fan system. On Tuesday, registered fans will receive emails with non-transferable personal access codes that will allow them to participate in the public sale on Wednesday morning.

In a move apparently intended to prevent a repeat of the massive crowds that flocked to Staples Center after Bryant’s death, the Lakers said the memorial will not be shown on exterior video screens at the arena or in the adjacent L.A. Live entertainment area.

MEMORIAL HELD FOR COACH, FAMILY KILLED IN BRYANT CRASH

Members of the public without tickets to the memorial were advised not to come near the arena or L.A. Live because they will not be able to enter the area, the team said.

The Lakers’ statement did not include any details about the memorial itself.

Staples Center, known as “the house that Kobe built,” is where the NBA All-Star played most of his storied two-decade career for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter and seven others were killed Jan. 26 when the helicopter they were aboard crashed in Calabasas, Calif., as they were flying to a basketball tournament where Gianna was to play with her team.

KOBE BRYANT’S MAMBA SPORTS FOUNDATION HONORS GIANNA BRYANT WITH NAME CHANGE

Bryant and Gianna were buried Feb. 7 at Pacific View Memorial Park in Corona del Mar, Calif. near the family home, according to death certificates.

On Monday, several thousand people came to Angel Stadium of Anaheim to mourn three of the other victims: Orange Coast College baseball coach John Altobelli, his wife, Keri, and their daughter, Alyssa, who was Gianna’s teammate.

Also killed in the crash were Christina Mauser, who helped Bryant coach the girl’s basketball team, as well as Sarah Chester and her daughter, Payton, another of Gianna’s teammates, and pilot Ara Zobayan.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board.

California officials warn against coronavirus-related hate crimes

Westlake Legal Group beb7f4bf-AP20044110764329 California officials warn against coronavirus-related hate crimes Louis Casiano fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/los-angeles fox-news/health/infectious-disease/outbreaks fox-news/health/infectious-disease/coronavirus fox news fnc/health fnc c5c638ba-3b2b-5574-aed5-932fb1a834bf article

Los Angeles leaders warned of bigotry against the Asian community on Thursday after several incidents of bullying and orchestrated hoaxes over the novel coronavirus were reported in the area.

More than 64,000 people have been sickened by the COVID-19 virus and over 1,300 people have died, mostly in mainland China. Los Angeles has only one confirmed case.

“We’re not going to stand for hate,” Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda Solis told reporters at a news conference.

CHINA’S CORONAVIRUS SURVIVORS MAY FACE MENTAL HURDLES ONCE OUTBREAK ENDS

Fears over the virus have resulted in hoaxes and hostilities against the region’s Asian community, the largest in the United States.

A petition urging schools in the suburb of Alhambra to cancel classes over the virus had 14,000 signatures. A boy of Asian descent needed an MRI after he was bullied and beaten this month at a San Fernando Valley school, said Robin Toma, the executive director of the county’s Human Relations Commission, which works on hate crime prevention, the LAist reported.

In Carson, a flyer with a fake seal of the World Health Organization told residents to avoid Asian-American businesses like Panda Express because of the outbreak, according to Reuters.

Toma said people wearing face masks have also had insults hurled at them. He urged anyone being targeted because of their race to report the incident to authorities.

“We need you to step up and speak out when you see it happening to others,” he said.

China has suffered the vast majority of coronavirus cases since the outbreak first began in the Hubei province in December. There are 15 confirmed cases in the U.S.

There will likely be more cases in the coming weeks, “including among other people recently returned from Wuhan,” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said Thursday.

Ari Fleischer: Trump will tarnish Justice Department if he comments on Roger Stone case again

Westlake Legal Group FleischerFaulkner Ari Fleischer: Trump will tarnish Justice Department if he comments on Roger Stone case again Joshua Nelson fox-news/shows/outnumbered-overtime fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 819ecb91-9c39-5cae-8d69-9e6061a49907

Fox News contributor Ari Fleischer doubled down Friday on Attorney General William Barr’s comments criticizing President Trump’s social media comments about Justice Department cases and investigations.

“Presidents should comment on justice matters when it comes to matters of categories of crime,” the former White House press secretary told “Outnumbered Overtime.” “‘We’re not going to go after marijuana possessions. We’re going to go hard and throw the book at gangs.’ These are decisions presidents can make — should make and they should direct the Attorney General and the Department of Justice to follow through.

TRUMP DENIES INTERFERING IN ROGER STONE CASE, STAYS MUM ON POSSIBLE PARDON

“But an individual criminal case, particularly one of an associate of the president, White Houses can tarnish that if they comment on them,” Fleischer added. “So, yes, the president has a role but it’s a broader policy-based role, it is not a specific case role.

“If they comment on a specific case, it can politicize justice,” Fleischer said.

Trump insisted Friday he has a “legal right” to intervene in criminal cases — but has so far chosen not to — amid the ongoing controversy surrounding Barr’s decision to overrule federal prosecutors’ initial sentence recommendation for longtime Trump associate Roger Stone.

“The president has never asked me to do anything in a criminal case,” Trump tweeted, quoting Barr’s remarks in an interview with ABC News Thursday. “This doesn’t mean that I do not have, as President, the legal right to do so, I do, but I have so far chosen not to!”

Barr also told ABC that the president’s social media posts made it “impossible for me to do my job.”

“I’m gonna do what I think is right, and you know… I cannot do my job here at the department with a constant background commentary that undercuts me,” Barr said at the time.

Barr is scheduled to appear before the House Judiciary Committee March 31 to address the handling of the Stone case and other issues.

All four prosecutors withdrew from the Stone case after top DOJ officials moved to soften the initial recommendation that Stone serve between 87 and 108 months in prison. Trump has denied interfering in the case, but has been extremely vocal about it — saying Stone “was treated horribly” and called a initial sentence recommendation “a disgrace.”

Is the novel coronavirus here to stay?

Westlake Legal Group image Is the novel coronavirus here to stay? Madeline Farber fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/health/infectious-disease/coronavirus fox news fnc/health fnc article 667cd9d8-0c6f-5fab-a27e-ce8da0e70287

Could the novel coronavirus one day be as commonplace as the seasonal flu?

Despite rigorous containment efforts, medical experts working to understand the virus, now known as COVID-19, have acknowledged such a possibility — including Dr. Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), who said this week the virus “is probably with us beyond this season, beyond this year.”

WILL THE CORONAVIRUS DIE OUT AS THE WEATHER WARMS? 

When speaking to Fox News, Dr. William Schaffner, the medical director of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID), also recognized the possibility, but quickly noted it’s likely too soon to know for sure.

“COVID-19 is a respiratory virus, and if it behaves like other respiratory viruses, including influenza [the flu], we might anticipate that it will abate as the weather gets warmer,” he said. But, he added, “It may become part of our usual cold and flu season.”

CATS ARE WEARING CORONAVIRUS MASKS IN CHINA

That said, “We can’t be sure,” he said.

“It’s a new virus, and it may not have read the textbooks. That’s why the current, ongoing research to develop vaccines and antiviral drugs that are effective against coronaviruses is so important,” he continued.

The virus is new in humans — meaning medical experts at this time “cannot predict the long-term impact on the global community,” Schaffner said. “We are now in the containment phase and are working to restrict the virus’ spread in the U.S. and internationally.”

“Clinicians are rapidly diagnosing cases, putting patients in isolation and providing medical care. Public health officials are tracking contacts and testing them for the virus. So far, we have had very few cases in the U.S., and they have been close contacts of confirmed cases. We are seeing a similar response around the world,” he added.

CHINA’S CORONAVIRUS SURVIVORS MAY FACE MENTAL HURDLES ONCE OUTBREAK ENDS

To date, the U.S. has confirmed 15 cases of the novel virus, which has sickened more than 64,000 people worldwide and claimed some 1,383 lives.

Speaking to CNN, Redfield said he thinks COVID-19 could eventually “find a foothold and we will get community-based transmission.”

A scuba diver off the coast of Florida has captured stunning video footage of a huge great white shark, said to be 15 to 20 feet long.

Space Coast Daily reports that diver Jim Cocci filmed the shark near the Breakers Reef off Florida’s East Coast.

Cocci posted a video of the massive shark on Facebook on Feb. 11 “Only need two words to describe diving West Palm with Walker’s Dive Charters today: ‘Great White’!”

The video has racked up 55,000 views since it was posted.

Investigators looking into the disappearance of 6-year-old Faye Marie Swetlik were led to the body of the young girl on Thursday after finding a “critical item of evidence” while searching through her dead neighbor’s trash, officials said at a press conference.

Cayce Department of Public Safety Sgt. Evan Antley said that Coty Scott Taylor, 30, has been linked to the homicide after he was found dead in his Churchill Heights home Thursday morning.

Police made the discovery shortly after they found evidence in his trash can that led them the young girl’s remains in a wooded area near her home on Londonderry Square.

“He was a neighbor, not a relative, not a friend, he was merely a neighbor that lived in the Churchill Heights community,” Antley said.

He did not name Taylor as a person of interest or a suspect but did say that the item found in his trash was something that would have been listed on the missing person flyer created after she disappeared.

Officials did not give a cause of death pending an autopsy on Saturday.

Faye was last seen getting off the school bus Monday afternoon. Her family discovered her missing about 3:45 p.m. and called 911 after looking for her for about an hour, authorities said.

Antley said the investigation is still open.

Martina McBride, husband lose retaliation lawsuit filed by former employee

Martina McBride and her husband John McBride have lost a retaliation lawsuit filed by a former employee of theirs who claimed the couple unfairly treated their interns.

Richard Hanson filed the suit citing retaliation against the country singer and her recording engineer husband in June 2018, alleging that they fired him one hour after he voiced concerns about how the duo treated their interns.

Court documents from last week show that a jury sided with Hanson, finding the McBrides and their studio at fault for axing Branson after he reported the mistreatment to the Department of Labor, Taste of Country reported.

MARTINA MCBRIDE: ENTERTAINING PEOPLE IS MY JOB, NOT DISCUSSING POLITICS

The jury’s decision awarded Hanson $100,000 in compensatory damages, $59,000 in back pay and $59,000 in liquidated damages, according to the report.

Reps for the McBrides and Hanson did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

In the original complaint obtained by Fox News, Hanson alleged that Martina and John hired unpaid interns to do menial tasks like cleaning their bathrooms and shopping for groceries.

Hanson, who was Blackbird’s operations manager from 2012-2017 and ran the company’s internship program, also accused John of giving two interns a gun and requesting them to check on a potential intruder at the couple’s home.

“One of the interns, who did not know or receive training on how to safely operate a firearm, was handed a loaded gun to perform this security-related task,” Hanson claimed.

At the time, the country singer denied the claims to The Tennessean.
