6:03 pm
analyst, by charging special circumstances, which could lead to a death penalty case, the district attorney left the door open for possible bargain for intermission. >> was that tons of the district attorney would have leverage? >> they're not supposed to use the death penalty as a bargaining chip but i'm sure they would like something to approach the defendant with so that if they could get information on where she is, they may be willing to consider that in their evaluation of the case because, obviously that is a significant issue, and something i'm sure the family would want to see. >> again, we learn today that this is a death penalty eligible case because of the with the distant attorney is charging it, murder with special circumstance of kidnapping. we're told he has not yet decided whether or not he will seek the death penalty but the only other option is life in prison without the possibility of parole, if this defendant is convicted of this crime. >> thank you. >> well we have just learned that a bay area soldier has been killed in afghanistan.

6:06 pm
question? >> she says that as something to not want to stay in oakland and the space could be used for other things. she announced today a balanced budget and she told us that the money for reports on this project will come from a reserve fund from that balanced budget. >> this is so big and there is so much money at stake, i'm sure that there are many backdoor deals. but the language that the mayor is using is a little interesting in terms of whether or not this is a real deal for oakland or whether it is real for san fransisco. it is confusing. >> that is correct. it is confusing at this point. there are politics on both sides but certainly she seemed to believe her own words and i think she is putting this plan out there as a way to tell the warriors to come back if they want to. >> congresswoman nancy pelosi went to bat for the california high speed rail system. she is urging state lawmakers to act now to get that $68 billion

6:09 pm
