The sentencing for Lupe Almaguer, a former Mammoth Lakes daycare provider who was arrested last October on child sexual abuse charges, was continued yet again at the request of Almaguer's attorney Tuesday.
Almaguer was on the court calendar to be sentenced March 29, but was granted a continuance to April 26, according to Todd Graham, Mono County Deputy District Attorney.
Graham said earlier that the District Attorney's office would be ready to move forward on March 29. "I will state on the record that I am ready to proceed with the hearing," he said in a March 25 email.
A 24-year-old former Mammoth man was arraigned Tuesday morning on murder and arson charges related to the September killings of his estranged wifeâ€™s grandmother and his two-year-old stepson, the Reno Gazette-Journal reported Tuesday.
Washoe County District Attorney Richard Gammick and his staff will be meeting to decide if they will seek the death penalty against Justin Tu Ouimet, currently of Reno, who is accused of fatally stabbing Lana Stone, 62, and Connor Lawrence, the two year old, the newspaper reported.
