Mr. Brooks, the 24-year-old son of “You Light Up My Life” writer and Oscar winner Joseph Brooks, has been held without bail since his arrest.
And in February last year, prosecutors say, multimillionaire Gigi Jordan killed her 8-year-old autistic boy at the posh Peninsula Hotel. Ms. Jordan has pleaded not guilty to murder. She wrote a letter saying she planned to kill herself and her son, but prosecutors have said she may have faked the suicide attempt. Her lawyer says the claim is baseless.
