Third man sentenced in deaths of girl, father
TUCSON — A third defendant convicted in the deaths of a southern Arizona girl and her father has been sentenced.
The Arizona Daily Star reports the 44-year-old Arivaca resident was convicted last month of murder. The jurors spared Gaxiola the death penalty for the murder of Raul Flores but could not reach a unanimous decision as to his punishment in the girl’s death.
Protest starts after workers unearth Indian remains
SANTA CRUZ — Protesters want construction halted at a California housing development after builders unearthed American Indian remains at what is believed to be a 6,000-year-old burial site.
The Santa Cruz Sentinel says that about 100 people participated in a two-mile march Sunday to demand a halt to construction of 32 homes.
Protesters held signs reading, “All cemeteries are sacred” and “No bulldozers on sacred ground.”
Coroner’s investigator Naomi Silva says builder KB Homes earlier this month found a partial skull or mandible of an American Indian child buried in the grassy open space. A piece of an Indian necklace was also found at the nine-acre site.
Sunday’s demonstration was organized by a group called Save the Knoll, which formed about a week ago after members learned about the remains.
