STOCKTON, CA - Yesterday, three fugitives in three separate cases appeared in court with a heavy security presence.
1.People v Randall Saito. An identity hearing was set for Saito for December 5th. At the hearing, a judge will determine if the person named Randall Saito in a fugitive warrant from Hawaii is the same person currently in custody at the jail on that warrant. When identity is confirmed, Saito will be sent back to Hawaii.
2.People v Tramel McClough. McClough was arraigned on charges of evading police in Stockton weeks after his escape with fellow inmate, John Bivens, from a Palo Alto courthouse on November 6. Both faced robbery charges there. Then, on November 21, McClough and Bivens were spotted by California Highway Patrol as they drove northbound on Interstate 5, south of Eight Mile Road. CHP pursued the vehicle to Trinity Parkway, where McClough jumped out and ran into a Walmart. He was then taken into custody.
Bivens, however, was able to escape capture at that time. On Sunday the 26th, U.S. Marshals captured Bivens at a San Leandro motel. The San Joaquin County District Attorney's Office has not yet determined whether it will file any charges against Bivens.
McClough's next court hearing is December 5th at 8:30 AM.
3. People v Daniel King. King was arraigned today on murder charges for the November 1 murder of Henry Dunalp. Mr. Dunlap was shot to death at a Chevron gas station located on Lower Sacramento Road. Stockton Police detectives were able to develop King as a suspect when they learned he had fled California with his mother. A fugitive warrant was issued on November 13th and King and his mother were arrested shortly after in Idaho. King was transported back to California last Tuesday. King's mother, Lynn Ricketts, has been charged with aiding her son in evading capture. She remains in Idaho awaiting extradition.
King's next court hearing is December 12th at 8:30 AM.
