Fire crews extinguish El Dorado Hills house, grass fire

EL DORADO HILLS, CA - A house fire lead to a grass fire Sunday in El Dorado Hills.

A family home at 2790 Aberdeen Lane caught fire at the back around 10:45 a.m., said fire crews on the scene.

The fire spread to ¾ of an acre behind the home, which is part of the property. CalFire was able to put out the wildland fire.

El Dorado Hills fire crews also responded to the fire. About four to five engines were on scene.

Fire crews believe no one was home at the time of the fire.

Crews have not been able to go into the home because the structure is unstable.

Garridos transferred to prison

SACRAMENTO, CA - Jaycee Dugard's kidnappers, Phillip and Nancy Garrido, have been taken into custody this week at the respective state prisons where they will serve their sentences.

The couple, who pleaded guilty to multiple counts of the kidnapping, false imprisonment and sexual assault, were sentenced June 2.

Phillip Garrido, given a 431-years-to-life term, is now incarcerated at California State Prison-Corcoran in Kings County. He is in a segregated cell but expected to be housed in the facility's protective housing unit, said Terry Thornton with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

Nancy Garrido was taken to the Central California Women's Facility in Chowchilla to serve a 36-years-to-life sentence.

The Garridos had been behind bars at El Dorado County Jail since their arrest in August 2009.

Colver convicted of Joanne Witt's murder

PLACERVILLE, CA - A Placerville jury has found 21-year-old Steven Colver guilty of first degree murder in the slaying of his former girlfriend's mother two year ago.

The jurors also convicted Colver of special allegations of lying in wait, use of deadly weapon and killing a witness to a crime.

Prosecutors alleged Colver fatally stabbed Joane Witt, 47, in her El Dorado Hills bedroom sometime on June 11 or 12, 2009. Colver and Witt's daughter, Tylar Witt, were reportedly afraid Joane Witt would report him to authorities because the two were having a sexual relationship. Tylar Witt was 14 and Colver was 19 at the time.

With hands clasped and head bowed, Colver appeared to take several deep breaths as the verdict was read. He will receive life in prison without the possibility of parole because of the special allegations when he is sentenced Aug. 12.

Jury deliberations lasted less than a day.

Use Caution on Area Rivers

Use Caution on Area Rivers

EID urges a cautious approach to local streams and rivers. As the weather continues to warm  up, the snow at higher elevations in the Sierra Nevada is continuing to melt. Due to the considerable snowpack this  year, it is anticipated that local streams and rivers—including Caples Creek and the South Fork and Silver Fork  American River—will be noticeably higher and colder for a longer period than usual. These factors will likely make  recreation areas and trail crossings along streams hazardous and unusable well into the summer recreation season.
