Parents in California torture case ordered to stand trial: prosecutors

Parents in California torture case ordered to stand trial: prosecutorsA judge on Thursday ordered a married couple to stand trial on 49 counts of torture, false imprisonment and abuse over the treatment of 13 siblings who were found imprisoned and starving in their suburban California home, prosecutors said. David and Louise Turpin were bound over for trial after a two-day hearing in Riverside County Superior Court in which the court heard tape of an emotional 911 call by a 17-year-old girl who climbed out a window and dialed police on a borrowed and deactivated cell phone, said John Hall of the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office. Officers who went to the Turpins’ home in Perris, about 70 miles east of Los Angeles, found 12 siblings ranging in age from two to 29 inside, suffering from malnourishment, muscle wasting and other signs of severe abuse.

Probe finds PG&E power lines sparked deadly 2017 California wildfires

Probe finds PG&E power lines sparked deadly 2017 California wildfiresBy Steve Gorman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A dozen of the wind-driven blazes that swept northern California’s wine country last fall, killing 46 people in the deadliest firestorm in state history, were sparked by PG&E-owned power lines, state officials said on Friday. The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, or CalFire, also said its investigators had found “evidence of alleged violations of state law” by Pacific Gas & Electric Company and referred those cases to county prosecutors for further review. PG&E issued a statement in response saying the company looked forward to reviewing the CalFire reports, adding, “We continue to believe our overall programs met our state’s high standards.” The findings could have tremendous implications for the San Francisco-based utility company in terms of potential legal liability for one of California’s most lethal and costly disasters.
