Two days after Tom and Jackie Hawks were allegedly tied to an anchor and thrown from their boat into the ocean to drown, Jennifer Henderson-Deleon bundled up Jackie Hawks' clothes, kept a bag for herself, sent some to Goodwill and trashed the rest, according to closing arguments in her murder trial. Did that mean Henderson-Deleon is insensitive or good-natured? Defense attorney Michael Molfetta told jurors in his closing argument that donating the clothes to Goodwill showed how generous she is, but prosecutor Matt Murphy said it displayed a callousness.

Paul Clinton NEWPORT BEACH -- Having a bit of fun, two local airport activists submitted a rebuttal argument to a countywide measure that doubles as a cute limerick. Dave Ellis and Richard Taylor, both members of the Airport Working Group, submitted the rhyme as a rebuttal argument to Measure V, which would make Orange County a general-law county. In essence, Measure V would give voters more direct say in government and allow voters to elect a supervisor who leaves a seat vacant to run for higher office.

Paul Clinton NEWPORT BEACH -- It may have the word "Greenlight" in its name, but a newly formed group supporting the planned Koll Center expansion isn't comprised of the usual suspects. In fact, the band of community leaders who led the effort behind last November's successful Greenlight slow-growth measure say this group has nothing to do with them. The new group, which calls itself the Greenlight Implementation Committee, has submitted a ballot argument supporting the Koll expansion Measure G, the first test of the slow-growth initiative.

Shaun Vilan was shot and killed and his friend Taylor Willis was wounded March 8 when they got into a scuffle with Costa Mesa police Officer Scott Dibble in Temecula. But no one will ever be charged in connection with the shooting. It?s not every day someone gets shot and killed and no one gets punished for it. But in this case it was because investigators concluded that the nine-year veteran cop acted in self-defense when the two men attacked him 45 minutes after an argument about Dibble mistakenly patting the fanny of a woman in Vilan?

Costa Mesa police arrested a Corona del Mar man for holding a live Taser when a hotel manager came to his room to inquire about an argument he had with another guest, authorities said Wednesday. At the Regency Inn on Newport Boulevard, Cody Valentine Bish, 30, was allegedly arguing around 11:50 a.m. Monday with a woman who was also staying there, said Costa Mesa police Lt. Mark Manley. After the argument, the woman went to talk with a hotel manager. The manager then approached Bish, who was allegedly found holding a Taser in "spark mode" — meaning it was turned on, with the electric current visible, Manley said.
