CA - Larry Fisk, 57, murdered, Palm Springs, 13 Nov 2009
I searched and searched and can find no thread on this murder. If the mods know of one, please merge this. I don't understand how this woman is NOT guilty of murder. I also don't understand why LE would take her journal without a search warrant. She seems central to the murder, however.
Girlfriend to be tried as accessory in ‘satanic' murder
"Prosecutors for a third time lost out on their bid to try a 39-year-old woman on a murder charge for playing a role in a Palm Springs slaying that investigators claim had satanic overtones.
Superior Court Judge Victoria E. Cameron ordered Wednesday that there was insufficient evidence to hold Cara Williams-Covert to answer for a murder charge, instead decreeing that she stand trial on being an accessory to a murder.
Cameron ruled that there was insufficient evidence that Williams-Covert knew her boyfriend, 49-year-old Dale Farquhar, would murder Larry Roger Fisk, 57, of Apple Valley, when she brought Fisk back to a Palm Springs condominium on Nov. 13, 2009. A jury convicted Farquhar, 49, of second-degree murder in June 2010, and he was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison..."
"...The judge ruled that a journal that had been used in Farquhar's trial that indicated the pair had acted out a satanic script in the killing was inadmissible because police had failed to obtain a warrant to seize it...."
"....the journal showed that Williams-Covert called herself a “witch'' and Farquhar identified himself as a “true demon'' and a “sociopath.''
