Staci Lynn Barbosa and Jonathan Edward Vandergriff are accused of raping and murdering their one month old son in 2010. While the Mohave County Attorney's Office planned on seeking the death penalty against Mr. Vandergriff, they have now backed off that tactic. As James King of the Phoenix New...
Tyson Langley, the 15 year old accused smoke shop murderer, entered his plea at his arraignment today. See my interview with Kimberly Chang of ABC 15 in the video above and read the story "Accused smoke shop shooter to enter plea in court, lawyer discusses case": Vladimir...
