Man guilty of killing family of 4 found in desert
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.
A Southern California man was convicted Monday of bludgeoning a couple and their two little boys to death, then burying their bodies in a remote desert area where the crime remained hidden until an off-roader stumbled across skeletal remains.
After a trial that spanned more than four months and depended largely on circumstantial evidence, jurors in San Bernardino found 62-year-old Charles “Chase” Merritt guilty of the first-degree murders of business associate Joseph McStay, McStay’s wife, Summer, and the couple’s 3- and 4-year-old sons.
Chief: Neo-Nazis sought violence at gay-pride event
Detroit police officers prevented violence by a neo-Nazi group that wanted to spark “Charlottesville No. 2” during a gay-pride festival over the weekend, the city’s police chief said Monday.
Chief James Craig said five people among about 15 white supremacists were openly carrying firearms – which is allowed under Michigan law – while they traded barbs with 15 to 20 counterprotesters during the Motor City Pride festival in downtown Detroit.
Officers worked to keep the two groups separate after getting word that the neo-Nazi group wanted to spark violence similar to the deadly 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., Craig said.
