Man Charged With Fatally Stabbing Mother, Uncle in Altadena

first_img Dr. Carol Anne Brown, 67A man was charged today with fatally stabbing his mother and uncle at their Altadena home while his mother was on a Zoom call with colleagues from Pasadena City College — one of whom witnessed part of the attack.Robert Cotton, 32, was set to be arraigned later Wednesday in a Pasadena courtroom on two murder charges stemming from the Monday afternoon killings of Carol Anne Brown, 67, and her brother, Kenneth Wayne Preston, 69.The charges include an allegation that he personally used a knife in the commission of the crime.Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies from the Altadena Station went to a residence in the 3100 block of North Marengo Avenue at about 2:45 p.m. Monday on a report of a possible kidnapping in progress, Deputy Tracy Koerner said.Brown, a Pasadena City College employee, was in her living room on a Zoom call with a colleague who saw part of the attack on Preston and called 911, according to sheriff’s Lt. Barry Hall, who said the tipster saw a man dragging another man into the living room but did not see either victim being stabbed.When deputies arrived, they found Preston, who had been stabbed several times, dead in the driveway and Brown dead inside the home and learned a Lexus SUV belonging to one of the victims was missing from the residence.While investigators were canvassing the crime scene, Cotton showed up on foot and identified himself as a resident of the home, sheriff’s officials said. He had allegedly ditched the Lexus in the neighborhood.A motive for the stabbings was unknown.Pasadena City College President-Superintendent Erika Endrijonas posted a message on the school’s social media site in which she wrote that “our PCC family suffered a terrible loss. Dr. Carol Brown, who most recently served as a co-coordinator of the Black STEM program, was the victim of a violent crime where she and her brother lost their lives. The attack did not occur on the campus. The incident occurred during a remote conference call with othercollege employees.”Endrijonas said counseling services were being made available to help her colleagues cope with the tragedy.“More information about how we can come together in response to this tragedy and remember Carol will be forthcoming,” she said. “I am completely shocked and horrified by what has happened.”Cotton has remained behind bars since his arrest, jail records show.

Get my plane! Virus-era EU summit not all smiles and elbow bumps

first_imgEuropean Union leaders had hoped the relief of seeing each other face-to-face after five months apart under coronavirus lockdown would ease their fraught debate.It did not turn out that way — despite beginning with cheerful elbow bumps and birthday gifts for 66-year-old Angela Merkel, Germany’s chancellor and a veteran of Brussels’ conference rooms.When the 27 leaders emerged into the dawn light on Belgium’s national day on Tuesday to unveil their post-virus recovery plan, they had been locked in a formal summit for four days and nights — more than 90 hours of horsetrading. This made it the longest EU summit since the marathon meeting in Nice, France in December 2000, after which President Jacques Chirac declared: “It’s not normal to finish at five in the morning.”Two decades later, summitry European-style had hardly changed, with EU leaders squabbling over a massive recovery fund to lift the European economy.And it all began quite pleasantly.When the summit started on Friday morning, Merkel, Europe’s most powerful leader, received gifts of an Austrian torte, a favorite French white burgundy wine and a silver flask of rose oil from Bulgaria. ‘Losing their cool’ Hours later, the first clash. Macron, fed up with the Frugals’ refusal to buckle, was said to have ordered his staff to prepare the presidential jet to take him home to Paris.Rutte, speaking to Dutch journalists, just shrugged it off and said he knew of no ultimatum.As the hours ticked on through more bilateral on Saturday, tempers frayed.One diplomat complained that the “Frugals” were making behind-the-scenes warnings to the south that financial markets could react dangerously if they didn’t cave.At a dinner, Macron, irritated by three days of fruitless discussion, denounced those who “endanger the European project” through “selfishness”.Again he threatened to storm out of the negotiations, with French officials insisting Merkel was ready to leave too.In the summit room, Macron, according to witnesses, attacked Austria’s Kurz for leaving the meeting to make a call and accused Rutte of behaving like former British leader David Cameron — whose strategy “ended badly”.At dawn on Monday, Kurz had his own take on Macron’s aggressive stance.”It’s understandable that some people, when they don’t get enough sleep, end up losing their cool,” he said.At 6am, the leaders ended up with their package, but were perhaps left wondering — like Chirac, two decades ago — whether there was some better way to reach an EU deal. Topics :center_img As the leaders removed their masks and sat down around a huge conference table in the European Council’s Europa building, for a moment thoughts of recession or pandemic seemed far away.But, as a grumpy Dutch premier Mark Rutte remarked two days later at a summit low point: “We’re not here with the intention of meeting each other on our birthdays for the rest of our lives.” ‘At an impasse’ To be fair, he’d had a bad night, culminating with a harangue from a table-thumping French President Emmanuel Macron that caused him to worry the negotiations might collapse.The first round of talks had been cordial enough.Each leader delivered their vision of what was needed from Europe — or not — in an extra-large conference room usually reserved for EU-Africa summits, to allow for social distance.The next day, the leaders got down to business with a new blueprint for the 750 billion euro package that — if agreed — would be a pioneering moment for the European unity project.EU Council Chief Charles Michel hosted leaders in small groups or one-on-one on the terrace of his Europa Building HQ with its view over Brussels, lending the summit the air of a rooftop lounge.But there was no spritz and pretzels as matters became increasingly tense and Rutte more entrenched in his low-spending position and insistence on austere labor-market reform.”We are at an impasse. It’s very complicated, more complicated than expected,” admitted Italy’s Giuseppe Conte.As big powers France and Germany went into a duel with the “Frugals” — Sweden, Denmark, Austria and the Netherlands — the leaders of smaller neutral countries wandered off to buy chips.Belgium’s Sophie Wilmes and Luxembourg’s Xavier Bettel appeared on Twitter in a sunny and festive Brussels square, and again later with the Estonian prime minister in tow for the city’s favorite snack.last_img read more

The Daily Orange’s unofficial positional breakdown: No. 5: The wide receivers

first_imgFootball beat writers David Wilson, Stephen Bailey and Trevor Hass are counting down the days until Syracuse football opens its season against Penn State on Aug. 31. They’ll show you what you can expect from each position as the Orange moves toward its Atlantic Coast Conference debut, with the top position showcased in the DO’s annual season preview guide to be released on Aug. 29. The guide will also feature a more in depth look at the quarterback position.No. 10: Kick returners/punt returnersNo. 9: The secondaryNo. 8: The defensive lineNo. 7: Tight endsAdvertisementThis is placeholder textNo. 6: The quarterbacksThe departure of Ryan Nassib grabs the headlines. The quarterback, perhaps the best in school history, is an understandably difficult piece to replace.Either Terrel Hunt or Drew Allen will take over, but what they’ll be greeted with is an arsenal almost as inexperienced as they are. Jarrod West takes over as the top target after being the No. 3 receiver a year ago, but behind him is a barren unit. There is talent, of course, but it’s raw and fails to compare to the gifted 1-2 punch of Alec Lemon and Marcus Sales.Key returning playersWest, who hauled in 43 catches for 588 yards, is far and away Syracuse’s most experienced returning wideout. In 2013, he’ll be counted on as the team’s top target.Alongside him will be either Jeremiah Kobena or Adrian Flemming. Kobena was limited to eight games due to an upper body injury, but gives SU a potential burner on the outside.Flemming, though, has been the one that’s impressed most during training camp. He played in five games last season, but didn’t catch a pass.“He’s probably had the best camp of any receiver,” wide receivers coach Rob Moore said. “He’s really done a great job of really improving in a lot of areas. He’s looked very good for us.”Christopher Clark, with 11 catches, was the only other true wide receiver to haul in a pass last season. Running back Ashton Broyld, who’s listed as an H-back, caught seven passes and has primarily worked as a slot receiver during practice this summer.“Ashton is a wild card,” Moore said. “He’ll be in a lot of different places. He’s an extremely talented player, so we’re going to find a lot of different ways to get him the ball.”Reasons for optimismWhere there is youth, there is potential and there’s youth aplenty in the Syracuse wide receiving corps. If West can become a solid No. 1 receiver, the Orange has a sizable pool to pluck from to play opposite him.Flemming right now looks like that No. 2, with Kobena giving them another reliable option.Alvin Cornelius, a redshirt freshman, is perhaps SU’s most purely talented wide receiver. Sean Avant, a freshman from Miramar, FL., is part of the talent boon that tripped up from Florida to Syracuse. Ben Lewis, another redshirt freshman, was a frequent target during Syracuse’s scrimmage in Fort Drum, N.Y., grabbing screen pass after screen pass.The two most intriguing new faces, though, are the Orange’s two raw, gifted playmakers. Quinta Funderburk, who originally landed at Arkansas as a four-star recruit, has worked often with the second team and hasn’t done anything particularly noteworthy. Brisly Estime, the freshman who’s behind Broyld on the depth chart at H-back, has worked in that similar slot role that Broyld has, shuffling between the second and first teams.“He’ll have a role,” Moore said. “How significant that role is I think is still being established.”Somewhere down the road, this group of wide receivers could be great. To start, though, it could be bumpy. Reasons for concernSales is the owner of maybe the best single-game performance by a wide receiver in Syracuse history – the 2010 Pinstripe Bowl. Lemon was the mark of consistency and turned in maybe the best drive of the 2013 season – his game-winner against Missouri.Sales and Lemon are both competing for spots on NFL rosters now. That’s tough to replace. And trying to do that with a hodgepodge of young guns makes that even tougher.Especially when the unit’s leader, West, is an unfinished product. He’s never had to be the main guy in the passing game and doesn’t possess any particular standout skill. Even Moore wasn’t necessarily enamored with his top threat, and has had him run with the second team at times during camp.“He’s still got some work to do,” Moore said. “He had a great offseason, training-wise, and we’re still waiting to see that more consistently, practice-to-practice.”The verdictLike so many positions on the Syracuse roster in this transition year there is talent, but the inexperience seems to overshadow it. There’s only so much that can be expected of a unit when its potential No. 2 guy didn’t even catch a pass the previous season.But let’s say Estime becomes an immediate star, or Funderburk or Broyld live up to their lofty potential. Then this unit can be devastating.Those are all big ifs, though. One day the wideouts could carry the team, but with a first-year quarterback it could be a tough group to rely on.Grade: BCome back to on Saturday to see what position comes in at No. 4.
