6:01 am
it is pretty slow here this morning. if you use this route, pack the patience. we're almost to the weekend. back to you. . breaking news. we are waiting to learn more about a hard helicopter landing that killed an american marine. it happened last night at camp lejeune in north carolina. the helicopter came down during a training exercise. at least nine other marines were hurt. the name of the marine who died has not been released. a marine spokesperson says the crash is under investigation. now to a story you'll only see on nbc bay area. a man held by immigration agents for months finally free this morning. he was nearly deported to mexico but he says he's an american citizen. now there are many questions about how something like this could happen. chuck coppola joins us live in the san francisco newsroom. all this confusion actually caused this man to miss his own mom's funeral. >> that's one of the human costs of the situation. immigration authorities now taking this case very, very seriously but it comes after
6:02 am
ricardo salizar, whose mother was born in the u.s., was detaped by immigration authorities for four months after he tried to return to his home in texas from a trip to mexico to get less expensive medicine for his mother. salizar had only his green card. salizar's attorney said salizar's claims of citizenship should have been investigated sooner. >> there was a memorandum from 2009 that was issued that explains what the procedure is for someone that claims u.s. citizenship. i.c.e. is supposed to basically investigate it. they're supposed to interview the person. it's supposed to be recorded. >> salizar was freed after his attorney presented his mother's passport proving her u.s. citizenship that should have extended to him despite the fact that he was born in mexico. further compounding his situation at the texas border, salizar also had an arrest record and his family never
6:03 am
formally filed his citizenship papers. in the san francisco newsroom, chuck coppola, "today in the bay." 6:02. today we could find out if there is enough evidence to try juan francisco sanchez for murder for a woman who was shot and killed while walking along the embarcadero with her father in july. the defendant's lawyers say the shooting was accidental. on the run for weeks but today behind bars. a suspect considered armed and dangerous is accused of a deadly office shooting. being held without bail. police tracked him down in san jose. he and two other men are accused of terrorizing and killing a man inside of an office building last month. investigators say aguero was seen on this surveillance video holding a ball and chain. as you slow down to the picture form right there.
6:04 am
aguero is the only suspect still alive. the other two were killed in separate police shootings. 6:03. another bizarre twist in an already strange kidnapping case. the man charged in a vallejo kidnapping for ransom is now blaming his behavior on side effects from a vaccine. he blamed it during an off the record interview with the fbi in march. he also claimed to have acted alone. but nothing is off the record when you are being interviewed in jail. >> i haven't seen it. i haven't heard it. i heard they filed something in federal court. we'll take a look at it. >> muller is accused of slipping into a dublin home, strike being t the homeowner in the head but he dropped his cell phone when leaving. that's how police found him and found evidence linking him to a

kidnapping. 3 1/2 years of pain. so many unanswered questions for the family of sierra lamar. after numerous delays the case against the morgan hill teenager's accused killer is finally moving forward. garcia torres is being held right now and a trial date is set but could there be even more complications in this case? >> reporter: that's right, sam. 3 1/2 years is also how long garcia. torres has been sitting in that jail cell behind me at the main jail in san jose. it looks like he'll finally have his day in court. you might recall sierra lamar disappeared from morgan hill as she was walking to school in march of 202012. weeks later investigators arrested garcia-torres. sierra's body has not been found but prosecutors are still pushing forward with the death penalty for garcia-torres in sierra's murder. garcia-torres' lawyers are still trying to fight the charges and
6:06 am
sierra's father told the nbc bay area he's pleasantly surprised by setting of a trial date next spring. >> there's some serious problems with this case that have been there since the beginning. and might have a question about the appropriateness of the death penalty in this case. >> i was glad. i was happy. yeah. a little bit relieved. >> but relieved. i was shocked, too. that's probably the most overwhelming emotion was shock because i had my expectations set pretty low. >> reporter: again, april 25th is when garcia-torres is expected to go to trial. but his lawyers will add challenges, including a possible change of venue request taking this to another county, possibly causing more delays. >> thank you very much. 6:06. many local veterans now say they may get some closure thanks to a
6:07 am
vandalism case in the east bay. an 18-year-old man from utah is now facing a felony charge after allegedly spray painting a war memorial at oak hill park in danville. many people say it is a sacred place. it happened back in june. in other news, one person dead after a fire erupted at a shed in bay point. this is video from our nbc chopper. it happened shortly after 4:00 yesterday afternoon. they found the victim's body after they put out the flames. no word yet on what caused that fire. today, an appearance in front of a federal judge for the kentucky clerk refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses defying the supreme court. >> your interpretation of the bible does not trump the constitution. your interpretation of the bible does not trump the united states constitution. >> a lot of contention. davis' lawyers call it a battle for religious freedom but others
6:08 am
say she's violating civil rights. "today in the bay's" kris sanchez joins us now. this clerk and her deputy face big fines, even jail time. >> jail, finds are on the table as rowan county could you clerk kim davis faces that federal judge in just about two hours. while he could throw the book at her, as an elected official she cannot be fired. supporters and opponents are already gathered outside the federal courthouse in ashland, kentucky waiting for are that hearing right now. the federal judge will ask davis to explain why she is defying the supreme court in refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. her lawyers have argued that the state of kentucky has an obligation to accommodate her religious objections if it would be reasonable to do so. in the meantime, davis says she's not discriminating against anyone in refusing to issue those marriage licenses. >> you do not work in a religious institution. if you wish to discriminate -- >> i'm not discriminating
6:09 am
because i'm not issuing licenses to anybody. >> davis says she's not disobeying the supreme court either because she's waiting for an appeal. however, a federal appeals court, and the u.s. supreme court, refused to lift a lower judge's order for her to resume issuing those marriage licenses. meanwhile, another county clerk in casey county kentucky also refusing to sign marriage licenses. he's on a 400-mile bike ride to show solidarity for kim davis who he says was just doing the job she was elected to do. davis heads to federal court this morning. if she's found guilty of misconduct and goes to jail for that, eventually the state legislature could impeach her but that's far down the road, h hours. could be a long process. but the process of getting to your weekend? that's right around the corner. >> temperatures will be rising quickly heading into the weekend. so enjoy cooler weather today while it still lasts. this is what you need to know as

6:15 am
maryland democratic senator barbara mikulski says she will support the deal. it will ease economic sanctions in iran in exchange for iran ending its nuclear program. her support means the president has enough backing to sustain any veto if republican lawmakers follow through with their threats to try to block the deal. from the president, to presidential hopefuls. it looks like a campaign, but it's not. at least not yet. we're talking about vice president joe biden who's swinging through florida this week. he's focusing today on iran amid speculation about whether or not he is going to run for office. analysts say that he could be more of a threat to republicans than hillary clinton. >> will yhe be able to connect with voters. >> it is a very political, difficult issue in america. but i believe -- >> clinton's numbers have dwindled with questions about her e-mails and her private server. but politics is largely about

6:34 am
walking to the school bus stop in morgan hill back in march of 2012. sierra's body has still not been found but prosecutors are still pushing forward with the death penalty for garcia-torres. the delays were due, in part, because garcia-torres had to change lawyers at one point. he's now being represented by the alternate defender's office. sierra's father says he was pleasantly surprised by the new imminent start of the trial while the suspect's lawyer says he will continue to fight. >> i was glad, i was happy, yeah. a little bit relieved. and i was shocked, too. that's probably the most overwhelming emotion was shock because i had my expectations set pretty low. >> there are some serious problems with this case that have been there since the beginning and might have a question about the appropriateness of the death penalty in this case. >> reporter: this trial is now scheduled to start on april 25th of next year. and there are indications the
