Man paroled in 1992 honors-student murder

A man convicted in the 1992 murder of an honors student in Buena Park has been granted parole.

Kirn Young Kim, 36, was 16 when he and four other teens carried out a plot to kill 17-year-old Stuart Tay. For his role as lookout during the brutal beating, he was tried as an adult and received a sentence of 25 years to life in prison.

Last year, a parole board granted Kim his release, a decision which was then reversed by Gov. Jerry Brown. Kim’s attorney appealed that reversal to the state’s 4th District Court of Appeal.

According to a court document, the governor reversed the board’s decision believing that Kim had not been honest about his role in the murder. To the parole board, however, the document went on to say that Kim had shown he was a model prisoner and presented psychological reports that said he proved a low risk for reoffending. Kim also told the board he took responsibility for his actions.

In an opinion, court officials noted Kim had no criminal record before the murder, and he had not been involved in gangs, drugs or alcohol. While in prison, he had furthered his education, avoided the need for discipline and received commendations from officers and staff.

The New Year’s Eve killing in 1992 received international attention and resulted in convictions of five teens, four of whom were tried as adults. During their trials in 1994, prosecutors said Sunny Hills High School student Robert Chan orchestrated the killing because he feared Tay would tell authorities about a plan to rob a computer salesman.

Along with Kim and Chan, Abraham Acosta, Mung Bong Kang and Charles Choe were prosecuted for the crime.

FONTANA: Officer bitten on leg during arrest

A road rage incident at a Fontana apartment complex ended in the arrest of Albert Jackson, 45, who then bit the arresting officer in the leg, according to a press release.

On Friday, July 13 at about 1:50 a.m., a Fontana police officer attempted to stop two vehicles that appeared to be involved in some sort of road rage incident in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 16700 block of Village Dr.

The officer heard someone yelling and threatening someone else.

One of the subjects hurried towards the officer as if he was scared. Jackson, who was the one yelling, turned and quickly walked away from the officer while continuing to yell. The officer called out numerous times for him to stop but he continued walking away.

The officer followed Jackson to an apartment and attempted to stop him before he went inside. As the officer attempted to stop Jackson, Jackson elbowed the officer and then ran inside. The officer followed and attempted to arrest Jackson as he continued to struggle. Another officer arrived and Jackson was taken into custody, according to the release.

As the officers were placing Jackson into the police car, Jackson bit one of the officers in the leg. Jackson was taken to a local hospital to be checked as a precaution where he was uncooperative with medical staff and continued yelling threats at others.

Jackson was arrested for obstructing or resisting a public officer with use of force, violence or threats and booked at West Valley Detention Center, according to the release.

Casey and Cindy Anthony Wear Caylee’s Ashes Around their Necks

Casey and Cindy Anthony Wear Caylee's Ashes Around their Necks | Casey AnthonyAlmost a year after her acquittal in the death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, Casey Anthony is living life in seclusion, rarely venturing out for fear she will be recognized. But perhaps the strangest thing about her life now is the macabre memento that Anthony, 26, keeps around her neck.

Late last year Anthony reconciled with her mother Cindy, who recently sent Casey a gift – a necklace containing Caylee’s ashes.

According to several sources close to both women, Cindy wears an identical necklace herself. “Casey told me it was the way the Anthony women would be together forever,” a friend of Casey tells PEOPLE.

Since walking out of jail on July 17, 2011, Anthony has moved around Florida, now settling in the West Palm Beach area. Spending most of her days online, Anthony has put on about 20 pounds, according to the friend.

In an interview with Piers Morgan last month, Anthony maintained that she did not kill her daughter, and that she has been misunderstood.

One person who isn’t buying it: attorney Jeff Ashton, who prosecuted the case against Casey. “I’m I’m not going to get all weepy at the thought of Casey not being able to go out and party,” he tells PEOPLE. “She brought it all upon herself, and she has to live with it – which is incidentally a luxury that Caylee will never get.”

Andy Griffith Dead: Actor Dies At Age 86

Andy Griffith DeadActor Andy Griffith died on Tuesday morning in Dare County, North Carolina,reports WITN.com.

Dare County Sheriff Doug Doughtie confirmed to the website that an ambulance went to the 86-year-old’s home at 7 a.m. this morning.

Griffith’s good friend and former President of the University of North Carolina, Bill Friday, told WITN that the actor had passed away. The AP and CNN also confirmed the news. Details surrounding the actor’s cause of death have not been released at this time.

Griffith was best known for his role as Sheriff Andy Taylor in “The Andy Griffith Show,” which ran from 1960 to 1968, and later known for his role as a criminal defense lawyer on “Matlock,” which ran from 1986 to 1995. The actor was honored with the the TV Land Legend Award in 2004, and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by George W. Bush in 2005. Griffith was also a singer and musician, and his 1996 album “I Love to Tell the Story: 25 Timeless Hymns” went platinum.

The television icon had been dealing with health issues for years. In 1983, Griffith was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome — a disorder that affects the nervous system.

“Guillain-Barré has left me with permanent pain in both feet, but like an unwelcome guest, it isn’t so bad when I stop paying attention to it. Challenges and pain will continue all my life, I know, but with Cindi at my side to remind me to accept God’s grace, I’ll go forward and continue to work with love and happiness,” he toldGuideposts magazine in 1996.

In May 2000, he underwent quadruple bypass surgery after suffering a heart attack.

He is survived by wife Cindi and his daughter Dixie. Son Andrew Jr., known as Sam, died in 1996, reports MSNBC.

Scout Willis Arrested: Demi Moore’s Daughter Busted For Underage Drinking, Fake ID In New York

Scout WillisJust months after Scout Willis claimed that her graphic tweets were all a “hoax” for a college class, the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore has found herself in hot water again. The New York Daily Newsreports that the 20-year-old was arrested in New York on Monday evening for underage drinking (an 8-ounce Pakistani beer, if you must know). The crime was made worse by the fact that Willis was drinking outdoors in public — in Union Square — and first tried to pass off fake identification to the transit cop who questioned her.

“My name is Scout Willis… The first ID isn’t mine. My friend gave it to me. I don’t know Katherine Kelly,” Willis allegedly told the cop, in reference to the name on the fake ID.

Willis was charged with criminal impersonation and violating New York’s open container law, both misdemeanors; she was released on bail early Tuesday morning.

Willis, an aspiring singer, attends Brown University in Providence, R.I. In March, she performed in New York as the vocalist of the band Gus + Scout at Rockwood Music Hall (the other half of the band? Gus Wenner, son of Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner). Meanwhile, older sister Rumer Willis, 23, has also been working on her singing career, mostly performing at Los Angeles locations and with the support of former stepdad Ashton Kutcher.
