Jury finds 2 men guilty

first_imgLOS ANGELES – A jury on Tuesday found two men guilty of the murders of an elderly La Habra Heights couple who were beaten to death with a tire iron in their home. Theodore Churchill Shove, 55, and Lewis Hardin, 35, were convicted of two counts of first-degree murder with the special circumstances these were multiple murders and that the killings of 81-year-old Hubert “Bert” Souther and his 79-year-old wife, Elizabeth Ann, were done for financial gain. Shove and Hardin face the death penalty. The penalty phase of the trial starts Nov. 5 at Los Angeles Superior Court. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.The jury also found Shove guilty of second-degree burglary, receiving stolen property and three counts of sending a threatening letter for the purpose of extortion, according to Sandi Gibbons, spokeswoman for the District Attorney’s Office. Deputy District Attorney David Walgren declined comment, saying the penalty phase is yet to come. The prosecution argued that Shove hired Hardin to kill the Southers because he wanted their business, Cal Aero Supply, a surplus hardware and tool business in Paramount. Souther had no intention of selling Cal Aero. When he didn’t show up for work, a relative went to the Southers’ house in the 2100 block of Ardsheal Drive on Sept. 17, 2001 and discovered the bodies. The prosecution also said that Shove also portrayed himself as “Tony Bonanno,” a man with alleged ties to the mob. Walgren said Shove coerced and threatened Cal Aero’s then-president, William Vann of Covina, into giving him information about Cal Aero’s safe which Shove and an accomplice burgled on Sept. 18. Shove also sent extortion letters to members of the Souther family. The defense’s stance was that someone else killed the Southers. The defense also questioned the forensic evidence. The verdict came as welcome news to the Souther family. “I’m so relieved and my family is so happy,” said Allison Renck, 48, who is one of the Southers’ two daughters. “My parents finally received justice. I’m very happy that (Shove and Hardin) are going to serve the justice they deserve.” Renck said her parents didn’t deserve what happened to them. She’s relieved Shove and Hardin won’t be out in the streets because she thinks they could hurt someone else. She pointed out that the case isn’t over because there’s still the penalty phase. And if the two get the death penalty, she said they could file appeals. Renck praised the prosecutors. “The DAs did a wonderful job for a case that is so bizarre (and) that should never have happened to my family. They had to go through all the evidence to make it clear enough,” she said. James Goldstein, who represents Hardin, said he was disappointed with the verdicts. “I felt there was doubt. I’m referring to the overall crime scene,” Goldstein said. He said none of Hardin’s blood was ever found in the room where the murders occurred. “And in fact I pointed out that the prosecution in his final summation even indicated that if the jury did not believe (Hardin) was the actual killer, he could be equally guilty as an aider and abetter.” He said it was still unclear who did the killings. Alex Kessel, Shove’s attorney, didn’t return phone calls. ruby.gonzales@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Bush motorcade leaves other folks fuming

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “My poor children – they were so disappointed. They’re all so sad. They were inconvenienced by a silly motorcade down Sunset (Boulevard).” Bush’s traffic jams – Westside to San Fernando Valley commutes Thursday night took up to three hours when traffic was rerouted because of a presidential fundraiser – added to the lore of a city notorious for its gridlock. On Friday, police were alerted just before Bush began his commute. With only a few minutes’ notice from the U.S. Secret Service, LAPD and city Department of Transportation cops shut down Sunset Boulevard west of the San Diego Freeway from 8:15 a.m. to 10 a.m. Thousands of commuters, unable to cross the legendary L.A. strip except for intermittent breaks in traffic, were trapped with engines idling in miles-long jams. John Brooks, a news reporter for radio station KFWB-AM (980), was unable to move for more than an hour as gridlocked motorists as far south as Wilshire Boulevard screamed at traffic cops barring their commutes. One hundred Brentwood kindergartners, many dressed in costumes, were all set to go see “The Wizard of Oz” on Friday when their first-ever field trip was blocked by the nation’s 43rd president. They never got to see the wizard. President George W. Bush, his Marine One helicopter grounded by fog, brought morning rush hour to a standstill while his motorcade proceeded from West Los Angeles through the San Fernando Valley to Simi Valley for the dedication of the Air Force One Pavilion. “We had buses all loaded up – but by the time they got to school it was too late,” said Julie Fahn, a volunteer mom at Kenter Canyon Elementary in Brentwood, where girls had dressed as Dorothy to see the play performed in Malibu. “They were saying, ‘I gotta take my kid to school – what’s going on here?”‘ he recalled, adding that some had also grumbled, “Presidents always come to this side of town because there’s big money here.” One glamorous Westsider suggested an alternate route for the president. Another wielded a sign that said simply, “Impeach Bush.” At a Starbucks on San Vicente Boulevard, motorists drank lattes in resignation. “A lot of people were stuck,” barista Denise Johnson said. “Traffic wasn’t moving. It literally wasn’t moving. I heard a few horns honking.” As the presidential motorcade turned from Sunset onto the northbound 405 for a dignified crawl on a freeway cleared of other cars, the CHP closed freeway entrances and exits along the entire motorcade route. Opposing traffic, unable to ignore the president, braked to a crawl. “Southbound was wall-to-wall, creeping, except for the car-pool lane,” said Dan Page of Simi Valley, who saw the deadlock from his Toyota Prius as he threaded the jam in the HOV lane heading for his job at the UCLA Health Center. Like many from a region that overwhelmingly cast votes against Bush in 2004, Page was critical of the president’s decision to disrupt the nation’s busiest freeway commute. “If he can sneak in and out of Baghdad without anybody knowing it, it seems like he could slip in and out of L.A. without disrupting rush hour – twice.” Lt. Joseph Peyton of West Traffic Division, who led the Sunset closure from the San Diego Freeway to Rockingham Drive, was proud to have protected the president, but was sorry for the logjam. “We did the best we could … it went without a hitch. Our command staff, with short notice, swung into action. It’s the most outstanding moment I had anything to do with,” he said. “Unfortunately, there were inconveniences and we apologize for that.” In Simi Valley, police reported no traffic slowdowns. For the children of Kenter Canyon Elementary who had planned to see “The Wizard of Oz” at Pepperdine University, their buses were 90 minutes late. They missed the last performance and will not be given a rain check on $6 tickets. “All the Kenter Canyon parents, they are not happy with (Bush) right now,” said Fahn, 33, whose 5-year-old twin girls had prepared for their field trip for months. “He’s not at the top of any list. “The kids did not see the wizard.” Dana Bartholomew, (818) 713-3730 dana.bartholomew@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
