Man Says He Didn't Kill Family
The man accused of killing a family from San Diego County and burying their bodies in the Mohave Desert says he didn’t do it. 57-year-old Charles “Chase” Merritt says there’s nothing that would connect him with the 2010 murders, either at their home or the place where the bodies were found. Merritt was a business associate of 40-year-old Joseph McStay. McStay and his 43-year old wife and two young sons, who lived in Fallbrook, California, were also murdered. Merritt is representing himself now and says the lawyer he had was in over his head.

Safety Practices Put in Place After Uzi Accident
State legislators have come out with safety recommendations for gun ranges after a 9-year-old girl killed a range coach with a fully-automatic weapon. The Uzi she was using recoiled over her shoulder, killing Charles Joseph Vacca last August, when a bullet hit him in the head. Following an investigation, Sam Shooter’s Emporium II, which is located about 100 miles from Lake Havasu City, made some changes to their policies. They now only allow those 12 and over to fire a weapon, and they have the final say in which weapon can be fired by certain shooters. No charges were filed in the case and the investigation found no serious violations with the gun range.
