Women found guilty of Woodland carjacking and theft


The Yolo County District Attorney's Office announced Monday that a Woodland woman charged with stealing a local man's car while he left the engine running in the driveway was convicted of carjacking, robbery and auto theft. And Marissa Price's accomplice, Vanessa McKee-Salazar, also of Woodland, was found guilty of auto theft and grand theft.

The district attorney said witnesses testified at trial that Price, 19, and McKee-Salazar, 23, were riding their bikes about 6 o'clock the morning of Nov. 8, 2014, when they saw the victim's car unattended. As the pair moved to drive off with the car, the victim, hearing voices, ran out because he thought his 9-year-old daughter was in the car. The victim and his daughter had been getting ready to hang flags in downtown Woodland for Veterans Day, according to the D.A.'s office.

ID=26066045

A small town community is in shock after a teenager was gunned down at a Dixon park. Police said the suspect was also a teen.

The incident marks Dixon's first homicide since 2008.

The family identified the victim as 17-year-old Charlie Moore, Jr.

Grief-stricken relatives embraced one another at Dixon's Northwest Park. A memorial now sits there where the teen was fatally shot.

"He's just a sweet kid. We love him. He'll be missed but he's still with us," said Katrina Partida, the victim's grandmother.

UC Davis vet called to rescue wildlife around the world


He didn't get to celebrate Christmas with his family last year -- UC Davis Veterinarian Dr. Mike Ziccardi was called away on Dec. 22 to the Mongla region of Bangladesh to help more than 800 species of animals threatened by an oil spill.

The world's largest mangrove forest was at the heart of a 92,000-gallon oil spill caused by a tanker-freighter crash. The mangrove forest is home to 20 species of globally protected animals.

Ziccardi, head of the school's "Oiled Wildlife Network," joined other scientists from around the world to come up with a plan to save the region's oil-drenched wildlife. He is the man to call when wildlife needs help.

"Anywhere in the world if assistance is needed, we're one of 10 international organizations that are leaders in this field," Ziccardi said. "So we may get a call at times depending on what the needs are."
