Question of the Day
Officer waives preliminary hearing
CANTON — The police officer accused of killing his pregnant girlfriend and her unborn daughter waived a preliminary hearing yesterday because his attorney didn’t want evidence to be disclosed publicly.
Forgoing the hearing for Bobby Cutts Jr. will help ensure his right to a fair trial, attorney Bradley Iams said. He plans to do everything he can in “not allowing bits and pieces of the evidence out,” he said after a brief court appearance.
Mr. Cutts, 30, is charged with two counts of murder in the deaths of Jessie Davis and her unborn girl, who was to be named Chloe. Mr. Cutts is the father of Miss Davis’ 2-year-old son, and her family says he was the father of the unborn baby.
Missing priest, friend found dead in car
PORTLAND — The search for a Jesuit priest and a female friend missing since June 8 ended with the discovery of their bodies in their car in a ditch off a highway in northwestern Oregon.
The Civil Air Patrol spotted the car Sunday afternoon about 25 miles east of Seaside, said Tillamook County Sheriff Todd Anderson.
A Clatsop County deputy then found the bodies of David Schwartz, 52, and Cheryl Gibbs, 61, a longtime friend and traveling companion. Sheriff Anderson said it appeared that Mr. Schwartz and Miss Gibbs were traveling east toward Portland when they veered off the road, rolling once or twice.
