Grief, tributes follow death of renowned UC Davis animal behaviorist


DAVIS, Calif. - The suicide of a Davis veterinarian who helped pet owners deal with animal behavior problems while teaching her colleagues low-stress clinical techniques has stunned those who knew and respected her.

The body of Dr. Sophia Yin, 48, was discovered Sunday by a friend at her Davis home, according to the Yolo County coroner. The cause of death was listed as asphyxia by hanging.

"Shocked and saddened," wrote one of Yin's many followers on Facebook. "Sophia - you inspired so many of us and made the lives of millions of people and their pets better."

Yin was a 1993 graduate of the University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and became a prolific author, lecturer and video producer.

Jury: Daniel Marsh sane during murder of Davis couple


ID=16510793

A Yolo County jury on Tuesday found that Daniel Marsh was sane when he murdered a Davis couple.

He faces the possibility of life in prison without parole when he is sentenced. Marsh, 17, is ineligible for the death penalty because of his age.

He had been convicted of lying in wait, torture and two counts of first-degree murder. He was accused of stabbing to death Oliver "Chip" Northup, 87, and his wife Claudia Maupin, 76, in their condominium in April 2013.
