    From last week:


    A Pomona man was charged with murder Tuesday after prosecutors said he burned to death the mother of his children on Christmas Day.

    Clarence Duwell Dear, 51, could face the death penalty if convicted in the torture and murder of 41-year-old Dawn Hensley...

    [H]is arraignment was delayed until Jan. 28. He is being held without bail, Robison said.
