>> reporter: no cameras were allowed inside the courtroom today. muller was wearing a red jumpsuit. he seemed very stoic today. he will be back in court in two weeks. that's when the judge will decide whether or not there's enough evidence to hold him over for trial in the home invasion case. now, the kidnapping case, mueller's attorney says he hasn't gotten any formal paperwork on that. reporting live in pleasantton, cheryl hurd, nbc bay area news. her family said justice is finally in motion. three years after the disappearance of sierra lamar, her suspected killer has a trial date. anthony torres was in court today, suited, clean shaven and slimmer since his arrest back in 2012. robert honda has been reporting extensively on this case and joy joins us in santa clara this evening. >> reporter: we came to talk to sierra lamar's family about today's stunning turn of events.

of violent crimes killed in the mayfair community. the church is located on the dividing line between rival gangs. at one point one gang claimed the back of the church and the other the front. >> the gangs just divided the churches and said, this is our territory. here's a unique place where they both come together, because the line is right here on the back of the parish. the grounds. we're right on the line, or right on the border. so people come from both sides. >> reporter: for years the rival gangs have considered this church with 7,000 parishioners neutral territory. >> we can take them on retreats together. >> in essence the parents, or maybe grandparents of the now gang members built this church. so there's a legacy there that has been instilled in these members since they were little. >> reporter: a legacy of peace the parishioners hope will one

that colder onshore westerly wind. and also the fog that banked up against the coastline. winds out of the west at 25 throughout the coast. that's translating to 20 to 25-mile-per-hour sustained winds. very comfortable breeze tonight. you can see right now we have the fog lingering in san francisco. this is our view from engelside. oakland hills, you'll also see patchy clouds continuing over here throughout contra costa, also alameda county. in the south bay, it's been all about the beautiful weather in san jose. no clouds throughout downtown at the current moment. tomorrow's forecast will offer again another round of low clouds returning. in the futurecast, it will be the thickest at the coastline. notice the areas of green just to the south of half moon bay, throughout the peninsula, spotty drizzle that could happen. also towards fremont. and low patchy clouds for san jose and east bay.
we eventually get the sunshine in here. we'll look at that forecast. you can see we'll top out at 80 degrees in the south bay. tri-valley, 81. san francisco 68. and for the north bay 79. curious about the labor day forecast? we want to focus in on that. we'll have hotter temperatures by your labor day. if you have any plans next monday and you happen to be off, you will notice temperatures will jump to 94 degrees in the tri-valley. 93 in the north bay. and 92 in the south bay. at this point, it does not look like we will reach 100 degrees. we did talk about the el nino impacts on the wildlife just before our weather hit. if you did not see this yesterday, we're looking at the above-average chance of rainfall specifically for the bay area, january, february, also into march. again, likely linked to our developing el nino. i'm back with more weather in about 25 minutes. >> see you then, jeff. a bay area landmark, the flipt stone house up for sale. the reason? there's room to bargain if you want to put in a bid for this.

pasadena come after a lower court overturned the death sentence of a convicted murderer. earnest jones. calling the state system ineffective, and an example of cruel and unusual punishment. >> this is an opportunity to inject into the judicial system a sort of a wide-angle imax picture of the whole dysfunctional adventure of california. >> reporter: frank is a death penalty expert and critic of a system he said by all reasonable statistics is dysfunctional. consider this, of all the ways california inmates have died on death row since 1978, execution ranks third. behind natural causes, and suicide. in total, 749 people have been sentenced to death in that time frame. but only 13 have been executed. despite those numbers, attorney general harris is fighting to preserve the status quo.
she says the lower court's decision to overturn jones' execution, quote, undermines the important protections that our courts provide to defendants. this flawed ruling requires appellate review. and that's what's happening right now. so the court of appeals could wipe away capital punishment in california. but zimmering said it's not likely. >> the verdict that is being defended in the ninth circuit is a long shot. the most likely outcome will be that a panel of the ninth circuit will reverse it. >> reporter: on what grounds? california may show it's not up to the courts to decide the issue in the first place. or attorneys might point to delays as proof the state doesn't want to execute innocent people. adam shift's hunch, still, he believes the court proceedings will lead to change one way or another. >> given the cost of the death penalty, given the difficulties we've had, and the difficulties
other states are experiencing, we need a wholesale review whether this makes sense. >> reporter: this court case could very well prove a tipping point. >> i have major problems with the district court's exhaustion ruling. >> reporter: an entire subject here in california. i'm sam brock. that's this edition of "reality check." thank you, sam. we turn things now to jeff ranieri. >> why not. i'll take the wheel, guys. it's all about the cooler temperatures today across the bay area. you notice the cloud cover moving in, even if you're way back in contra costa and alameda county through the interior valleys. that fog is why we cooled down. check it out right now, 73 degrees in the south bay and peninsula. we're completely fogged in on the woodside weather underground camera. that's a sign of things to come. back to san francisco, 67 degrees. we're still mild here in the north bay with 75. let's take you to the east bay. that really is where temperatures drop the most, anywhere from 9 to 8 degrees compared to this time yesterday.
if you like the temperatures today, we have more coming our way for tomorrow. the morning forecast on thursday, you'll find as we've been mentioning the usual areas with the thick fog. like san francisco at 59. also for the peninsula with upper 50s. the south bay coming in at 57. again, the fog at the immediate coastline was the main driver behind these temperatures dropping. this is a profile of the atmosphere right near the surface at the coastline. we take a look at this to find out how thick the marine layer is. a lot of colors on this map. focus in on the pink and also the blue colors. that's where the coldest temperatures with the fog are located. we line it up to the side of the chart and you can see an altitude right around 3,000 feet of the marine layer at the coastline. because it was so thick today, and we expect it to stay just as thick tomorrow, that's why the temperatures will stay very, very enjoyable. let's take you to the forecast as we head throughout tomorrow. what you'll find here is the storm system is going to be off
to the north producing some showers in the pacific northwest. for us, we'll get some slightly cooler air with that. again, the fog will keep temperatures below average. let's get a look at how comfortable it's going to stay. in san jose, that will mean 78 degrees. cupertino coming in at 80. morgan hill, very nice, even down toward santa ter reesa in the lower 80s. san francisco it will be a day where everybody goes back to the 60s. let's get you to the north bay, east bay and the tri-valley. awesome. awesome day here. pleasanton, 80 degrees. danville at 82 for the east bay. 79 in fremont. the best weather, no doubt my forecast will be in napa 80 degrees expected tomorrow. hotter weather coming our way for the labor day weekend. it doesn't look like we'll have any 100-degree heat, but it is still going to be getting warmer. let's look at the labor day
weekend forecast. you can see saturday i think will be the most comfortable day when it comes to our temperatures. south bay 85 degrees. sunday five-degree jump in temperatures to 90. monday, 92. the north bay will be at 90 on sunday and 93 by monday's forecast. yes, it gets warm. but still i think it's going to be great barbecue weather throughout saturday, sunday and monday. pick a day, or barbecue outside all three days with this kind of weather. >> and barbecuing on labor day. >> we'll be here. former 49ers owner is in the headlines tonight. this might be the most crucial night of the season for the giants. no kidding. ==ess/too==ere prf ofow e u cmad inhe ldeess..pri
