the deputies are in the same jail where this alleged crime is alleged to have happened. the correctional deputies are named jerry lubrin, matthew fe a ferris. the man died in his jail cell. he was badly beaten with lacerations to some of his intern internal organs. some observers are surprised with how fast the sheriff moved in making the arrests. he was on the sixth floor of the jail reserved for gang members and inmates in protective custody. he did not have a cell mate and was about to be transferred to a treatment facility. for the last week, the guards were making a routine welfare check when they noticed he was unresponsive and called paramedics. the three guards face three
felonies. they could spend the rest of their lives in prison. i am told that the correctional deputies are here at the main jail. they will be transferred into another facility for their safety and security at some point either today or later on this week. i'm told that later today, the coroner will be here at the news conference. he is expected to announce the cause of death is, in fact, a homicide. the d.a. tells me they do not have the file yet. these charges are not formal yet. they will review and see if they will stick with those charges o under the color of authority. we will follow this and bring you the latest at 5:00 and 6:00. >> thank you very much. another developing story for you. two children are in the hospital this morning after they were hit by a car.

case. at 1:30 the hearing continues to determine if he will stand trial. so far, police -- investigators have recalled what people nearby the shooting saw and told them immediately after kate was shot and killed on pier 14. her parents filed lawsuits against the bureau of range management for a ranger's gun stolen from his car used in the killing, against immigration authority and the san francisco sheriff's department for among other things what they call a lack of communication in allowing sanchez, who had been deported many times and has a criminal record to go free after a non-violent offense earlier. the defense is that the gun went off accidentally. we should know whether he will stand trial by day's end. the judge is scheduled to go on vacation and wants to wrap this up before. if sanchez stands trial and is convicted of second degree murder, he could face 40 years
to life in prison if it is involuntary manslaughter and with his prior convictions, his minimum sentence could be 19 years in prison. more at 5:00 and 6:00. >> thanks, chuck. to one of the bay area's most high profile murder cases. after dozens of delays, the man accused of killing a 15-year-old will finally face a jury. investigators arrested him in 2012 after a grand jury indictment. yesterday, a judge set an april 2016 trial date. victims advocates say four years is too long for a family to wait for justice. lam lamar's father says that after waiting all of those years, the decision caught him off guard. >> relieved. i was shocked. that's probably the most overwhelming emotion was shock, because i had my expectations
set pretty low. >> the attorney filed aid mot d to dismiss the case saying the grand jury did not hear all of the evidence. legal experts say it's one of several motions expected to be filed in this death penalty case and it is possible that the legal maneuvers will affect the trial date. on the run for weeks, but today behind bars. the last of three suspects has been found and arrested for a deadly shooting. this man is in jail without bail. police tracked him down in san jose. he and two other men are accused of terrorizing and killing a man in an office building last month. it was caught here on surveillance camera. he is seen holding a ball and chain-type weapon. he is the only suspect still alive. the other two were killed in separate police shootings. napa valley college police are trying to track down a man who allegedly sexually assaulted a female student inside a campus

ailing mother. when he tried to come back, sal czar, born in mexico, only had a green card. that's because his mother made mistake number one when the family re-entered the u.s. shortly after he was born. >> what they have done is apply for him as a citizen. instead what they did is they applied for the family as lawful residents. >> customs saw an arrest record, six years ago. no problem if you are a citizen. but trouble if you only have a green card. he told any agent that he would listen that he's a u.s. citizen. nobody listened. that's mistake number two. >> i keep telling them my mom was a u.s. citizen. she was born in texas, corpus christi. they didn't pay attention to me. they ignored me. >> they are supposed to interview the person. it's supposed to be recorded, sworn testimony. >> mistake number three, brow brownsville area attorneys conjured up a defense based on his green card status.

>> i haven't seen it. i haven't heard it. i heard they filed something in federal court. we will look at it. >> reporter: in court, three people took the stand in the home invasion. he is accused of slipping into this home, hitting the homeowner in the head and leaving him before robbing him. police say on this way out, he dropped his cell phone. his attorney wants to make sure the search of that phone by detectives didn't break the law. >> if the cell phone was like a key that unlocked the case. so what happens with this cell phone in front of this judge is very important for the remainder of the case. >> reporter: the phone is important to the kidnapping case that was considered a hoax by police. a police officer investigating the home invasion saw similarities in the kidnapping case. now he is charged with both crimes and that cell phone is taking center stage. >> it's incumbent upon law enforcement, if you search something without a warrant, you
have to make that search clean. our lady of guadalupe church is rich in history. you have heard it before. it's where caesar chavez launched his fight for migrant workers. >> it's a sanctuary in the middle of a gang turf war. why gangs consider it a safe zone. >> reporter: as candles burn inside, outside you will find a glaring reminder of the violence surrounding the parish. these crosses represent victims of violent crime killed in the community. gang violence is a reality here. 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. >> gangs just divided the church and said, this is our territory. here is the unique place where
they both come together, because the line is right here on the back of the parish grounds. so we're right on the line or we're right on the border. 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. >> the parents or maybe grandparents of the now gang members built this church. so there's a legacy there that has been instilled in the members since they were little. >> reporter: alega legacy of pe they hope will extend beyond the walls of the church. now to an investigative unit exclusive, lying on your resume can have serious consequences. a ceo from yahoo! was booted from the company after saying he had a degree in computer science when he didn't. right now the they are looking
into claims that betasoft, a tech staffing firm, is crafting fake resumes on purpose for some of its trainees. the company advertise d and placed workers. two job seekers spoke with nbc bay area saying they paid $500 to $1,000 for training. but near the end of the course, trainers gave them resumes with years of job experience they did not have in companies where they had never worked. >> five page resume. how much of this would you say is real? >> about 1% to 2%. >> completely fabricated. >> no one from betasoft would speak to us. tonight at 11:00, we investigate the complaints and why some of the job seekers say they were instructed to lie. if you have a tip for our
investigative unit, give us a call or send an e-mail. the state's death penalty has been called broken and dysfunctional and a violation of basic rights. >> the california supreme court is taking up the case. could it be the end of capital punishment in california? >> we do not believe there's any evidence -- >> reporter: the state of california has staked out its position. the death penalty should live on. arguments come after a lower court overturned the death sentence of of a convicted murderer, ernest 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 picture of the whole dysfunctional adventure of california.
>> reporter: this man is a death penalty expert and critic of a system he says 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 the numbers, the attorney general is fighting to preserve the status quo. she says the lower court's decision to overturn jones' execution "undermines the important protections that our courts provide to defendants. this flawed rules requires appellate review." that's what's happening right now. the court of appeals could wipe away capital punishment in california. it's not likely. >> the verdict that is being defended in the 9th circuit is a long shot. the most likely outcome will be
that a panel of the 9th 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. that's this congressman's hunch. he believes court proceedings will lead to change one way or another. >> given the cost of the death penalty, given the difficulties we have had in it and the difficulties other states are experiences, we need a review whether this makes sense. >> reporter: this court case could prove a tipping point. >> i have major problems with the district court's exhaustion ruling. >> reporter: on a tired subject here in california. as kids head back to school, some parents in orlando are upset with new rules about social media. >> administrators will be monitoring students' facebook,
their twitter, instagram and just about any other iteration of social media when they are on campus but also when they're off campus. here is kerry sanders. >> reporter: when kids post on social media, it is there for anyone to see. now a new computer program in orange county is combing the internet for their social media accounts. and some complain school administrators looking is a violation. >> i don't like it. that's a private thing for me to use. >> reporter: in orlando, where kids returned to school less than two weeks ago, administrators say it's a sign of the times. in maryland three years ago, a student opened fire at school. the teenage gunman had posted threats on facebook before the rampage. in washington state last year, a student gunned down four classmates after posting violent threats on twitter. orlando believes the computer program from a company call eee
snaptrends could save lives. >> it monitors key words that present threats, gun or attack or kill, words of that nature. >> reporter: the district says because social media can be the source of bullying, school threats or mass cries for help, we believe it is appropriate to monitor public sites where anybody can view comments. some parents say they welcome the monitoring when the kids are in the classroom. what bothers them is school administrators are watching the kids when they're off campus. >> their role isn't the parent. they need to stick to educating our children and let the parents parent. >> by them monitoring your social media, it's like they are inviting themselves to sit at your kitchen table. it's not okay. >> reporter: orlando is not alone. schools in glendale, california, monitor. educators say there's one goal, prevent violence. the bottom line from the perspective of the school administrator is to better to be safe than sorry.

forward and said, yeah, i might be a surrogate. at first we thought, that's crazy. we started reading about other families doing it. >> reporter: after trips to specialists and countless tests, mandy's mother was chosen as the best candidate. >> pregnancy was easy. i like being pregnant. i never minded being pregnant. if it was something i could do for her, why not. i knew they were the only ones that really could go through it all. i know my mom is the only one that could. she was a rock star. it's not an easy process at all. >> reporter: it brought an added benefit for sherry. >> i didn't be a surrogate to put my m.s. in remission. that was an after thought. >> reporter: after the big decision came a waiting game and finally the moment the family had hoped for. >> i had to look at the line and i had to put my glasses on. i had to run to my husband, put your glasses on.

developing and rolling across the bay for the overnight hours and into the day tomorrow. we will see more of this as we go into tomorrow afternoon and then on saturday, i think we will keep the mostly clear skies. we have 60s along the coast. then some 70s and 80s for the inland areas. because of a nice onshore flow that keeps the winds up to about 20 to 25 miles an hour. during the weekend, high pressure will build and it will knock back the winds and changing the wind direction with the sinking air, we still have -- we will have clear skies but temperatures will be heating up starting on saturday and then continuing into sunday. i think sunday will be a great beach day. if you are heading down to pacifica, it will be 71. there will be spots you can cool off. water temperatures in the lower 60s. half moon bay, the high 75 on sunday. winds out of the northwest at 15 to 20. the waves may be very choppy. in santa cruz, 83 degrees. one of the warmer spots.
