  • Lucky dog: After eight harrowing days lost in the Plumas National Forest, a missing Shetland sheepdog was found. He was hungry, tired, cold, scratched, limping on bloody paws and missing some fur. But his tail was wagging.
  • On trial: The trial for a Quincy man accused of inflicting fatal injuries on a toddler in 2013 is scheduled to begin March 12.

A Plumas County judge ruled there is enough evidence for a Reno man to stand trial on eight felony charges, including murder.

Gregory Chad Wallin-Reed is expected to have a jury trial this summer in the shooting death of Rory McGuire, of Susanville.

Wallin-Reed, 36, is accused of killing McGuire and wounding two other men with an assault rifle following a July 2, 2011, car chase near Antelope Lake.

Investigators from several state and county agencies followed a lead contained in an email written by a condemned serial killer to his hometown newspaper Friday, Jan. 27, but the search for the remains of one of his victims failed.

According to a press release from the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office, investigators from the San Joaquin County and Calaveras County sheriffs’ offices and the Department of Justice (DOJ) searched an area in Calaveras County in an effort to recover the remains of Cyndi Vanderheiden — a 25-year-old woman believed murdered by Loren Herzog and Wesley Shermantine in 1998. No remains were uncovered.
