6B Wednesday, Dec 30, 2009 Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter REVIEW, from page 1B High-profile murder trial ends in life sentence After an agreement aimed at avoiding a change in venue, the murder trial of Reyes Carrillo-Garcia, accused of brutally stabbing his former girlfriend, Jenny Carrigan, and her boyfriend, Steven Furtado, got underway Sept. 28 The defendant faced charges of two counts of murder, each accompanied by an enhancement for the alleged use of a knife, and two special circumstances-- one for allegedly "lying in wait" and one for an alleged "multiple murder." District Attorney Jeff Cunan painted a picture of Carrillo-Garcia as a jealous ex-boyfriend who planned his attack. Defense attorney Richard Maxion argued, in- stead, that Carrillo-Garcia suffered from acute stress disorder. The jury quickly reached a verdict of guilty on all counts, and Carrillo-Garcia was sentenced Nov. 23 to two consecutive life sentences. He also received a consecutive sentence of two years in prison for two enhancements, because he used a knife in the killings. He was ordered to pay around $50,000 in restitu- tion to families and the victims compensation board. Cunan did not seek the death penalty at the request of the Furtado family, who Steven Furtado Jenny Carrigan Reyes Carrillo-Garcia preferred to see Carrillo- Garcia spend the rest of his days in jail. Logging litigation ends year on a positive note The timber wars continued unabated through 2009, but the year ended on a positive note for logging advocates. In August, a federal judge denied a motion for a pre- liminary injunction from an environmental group to halt the Moonlight-Wheeler Fire Recovery and Restoration Project. Citing a 2008 Supreme Court decision, Winter v. NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council), United States DiStrict Judge Frank C. Damrell Jr. ruled that environmental group Earth Island Institute had not met the legal standard for a preliminary injunction. Then in November, follow- ing up on a tentative ruling he made at the beginning of October, a federal judge determined, after years of litigation, which farest man- agement rules should be in play on national forests in the Sierra Nevada. Not only did he deny injunction requests from environmental groups and the state of California to stop certain timber projects, but he also ordered projects in process or already evaluated and approved by the Forest Service to proceed. The deci- sion affects approximately 75 projects throughout the mountain range. The decision, issued Nov. 4, addresses the long-standing question of which set of rules the 2001 Sierra Nevada Framework or the revised 2004 Framework should govern forest manage- ment in the 11 national forests in the Sierra Nevada. District Court Judge Morri- son England ruled that although there were some procedural deficiencies, which he called "relatively minor," in the Bush-era 2004 Framework, they did not mean the Forest Service the Quincy Library Group should revert to the Clinton- program of work, in place anc~ era 2001 rules.
