DYNAMITE ELT

Vietnam was full of surprises, from the amazing food (see gratuitous food porn picture), to being attacked by swarms of motorised humans when attempting to cross the road! It was actually thanks to a Twitter discussion that I’d found myself hopping onto a plane to Ho Chi Minh City a few months ago. I’d started […]

Second doctor finds homicide suspect fit for trial A man accused of homicide in the alleged fatal stabbing of a Eureka man in February has been found competent to stand trial by a psychiatrist. Albert Kress, 48, is charged with homicide in the death of 64-year-old Raymond Prudhomme at Prudhomme’s downtown Eureka apartment. Prudhomme’s body was found inside the apartment by police Feb. 22 and the ensuing investigation led to the arrest of Kress, who remains in custody. Kress Kress appeared in court on Tuesday as the results from a second mental health evaluation were handed over to the defense attorney, Public Defender Marek Reavis. Earlier this month, Humboldt County Superior Court Judge Christopher Wilson ruled that initial evaluation was too ambiguous to determine if Kress was mentally competent to stand trial and ordered a second. The second evaluation, performed by psychologist Micheal Ramirez, found Kress competent to stand trial. It initially appeared Reavis was going to request another evaluation but did not and instead a date for a preliminary hearing was scheduled for May 14. In addition to the homicide charge, Kress faces a special allegation of the use of a deadly weapon, in this case a knife, and Tuesday’s hearing also effectively served as his arraignment. In the hearing earlier this month, Kress entered no plea and Wilson noted that as he trailed two probation violation charges Kress also faces behind the homicide proceedings. Reavis accepted the amended charges and offered a plea of not guilty and a denial of the special allegation on behalf of Kress who appeared in court in custody wearing jail-issued clothing. “I would submit to the court the evaluation does find Mr. Kress competent to stand trial,” Reavis told Wilson. Defendant’s health delays hearing in kidnapping, carjacking case A preliminary hearing scheduled for a man charged with eight felonies including kidnapping, assault and carjacking was scheduled for Tuesday morning but was continued due to the defendant’s medical condition. Molina Franklin Molina, 21, of Los Angeles, was arrested in December 2018 by Mendocino County Sheriff’s deputies following a high-speed pursuit that began in Southern Humboldt County. Molina and a second suspect who remains at large, are accused of robbing a man and his daughter at their Sesame Loop Road home in Southern Humboldt, assaulting the pair, tying them up with duct tape and then locking them in a closet while they robbed the residence and fled the scene in a stolen GMC SUV. According to a news release from the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, once the victims were able to free themselves and contact 911, a be-on-the-lookout was issued for the stolen SUV which was disabled by OnStar south of Laytonville with Mendocino deputies in pursuit. A standoff then ensued as Molina refused to exit the vehicle and the Mendocino County SWAT team along with a Spanish-speaking police officer from the Cahto Tribe arrived on scene and negotiations between officers and Molina began. According to law enforcement, Molina made several threats to kill law enforcement officers and appeared to have a handgun — which later turned out to be an air pistol — before he fled on foot with K-9 officer Ruddick in pursuit. The K-9 and a nonlethal 40mm round were enough to subdue Molina who was first taken to the hospital for medical clearance and then booked into the county jail. Molina remains in custody with bail set at $250,000 and he will be back in court on June 16 for a preliminary hearing to determine what charges he will be held to answer.
