    CA - Anastasia Melnitchenko, 21, strangled, El Sobrante, 22 Oct 2005

    A National Park Service Law Enforcement officer found a woman's body Sunday in the trunk of a car that was pulled over at the Marin Headlands near Hawk Hill, U.S. Park Police spokeswoman Christine Powell said.

    According to Powell, the officer pulled over a male driver shortly after noon because he was apparently sick. The officer decided to arrest the man and as normal procedure, inspected the car, only to find the corpse in the trunk.

    The man was taken to Marin General Hospital for treatment.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    An El Sobrante man was arraigned for murder Monday after his girlfriend's body was found in the trunk of his car in the Marin Headlands.

    Scott Thomas McAlpin, 25, was charged with the murder of Anastasia Melnitchenko, 21, in federal court in San Francisco, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. He did not enter a plea, but was ordered to appear in court for a detention hearing on Oct. 31.

    McAlpin was arrested in the Marin Headlands, across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco, around noon Sunday after National Park Service officers found him vomiting next to his parked car, according to an affidavit.

    McAlpin had a history of domestic violence dating back to March 2002, and a restraining order issued two years ago ordered him to stay away from Melnitchenko. He was previously convicted for multiple felonies against her, including assault with a deadly weapon, stalking, false imprisonment and domestic violence, according to the affidavit.

    Angry

    Guess he decided that she didn't deserve to live if it wasn't going to be with him. Where do these guys get off anyway! None of them learn anything from each other. Don't they watch the news or read newspapers? "Hey guys...news flash....you end up getting caught stupid Now you either get the death penalty or you get to sit in prison for the rest of your lousy lives."

    Two things really get to me, and they are sex abuse or any kind of abuse of a child, and domestic violence. To me, there are so many things that could be done when domestic violence has been identified. Unfortunately they cost money, so they aren't done.
    There needs to be longer sentencing for domestic violence perps, court ordered counseling for both the perp and the victim, and some monitoring for a while.

    In 2003, Anastasia Melnitchenko pleaded with a judge to lock up her former boyfriend after she and prosecutors said he assaulted and stalked her for more than two years. She told the judge she feared for her life.

    On Sunday, authorities found the 21-year-old stuffed into the trunk of a car driven by her former boyfriend in the Marin Headlands. He was arraigned on murder charges Monday in federal court.

    Over the course of four years, Scott Thomas McAlpin, 25, of El Sobrante, continuously stalked Melnitchenko at school, broke into her family’s home, held her hostage at her workplace and threatened to kill her, according to authorities.

    Despite pleas from her family and prosecutors, two different judges handed him sentences prosecutors considered far too light

    I hope they do like the Steve Groene is reportedly doing. This is one case where I think the judges need to be sued for their decisions. They need to be shown that these are not just your average Sat. night domestic violence situations, and they aren't a violation of the suspect's rights- they are really about people who are in danger!

    I happen to know from personal experience that when a guy has the gumption to stalk you for two years, he's not kidding. After the man who stalked me was forced to leave town, the police officers gave me the calendar he had been keeping. On it was my every move for over a year. Every appt., every shopping trip, every salon visit, what time I got to my office, what time I left, what time I had lunch and with whom and where, and even everytime I went to my mothers. He highlighted on maps when I went someplace new, the exact route I took and the date. Its the scariest thing I ever saw.

    Yes, he was arrested after he broke into my apartment and held me for about 26 hours. I got away still tied up when he fell asleep. They were going after some pretty hefty prison time, but since his family convinced me and the judge that they could get him to leave the state (he apparently ended up in Florida) and got some mandatory mental health hospitalization, we agreed it was probably for the best. They said that he'd just get angrier and probably kill me when he was released from prison. I moved from the area myself not too long afterward and have never heard from him again.

    I am glad it worked out well in your situation. :kiss:
    You were very lucky.
    When is the justice system going to understand that restraining orders don't work? Neither does probation. If they don't do some real mental health counseling and follow that up with real time monitoring, they are just delaying the inevitable.

    This young woman spent the last several years of her life having to live in fear, look over her shoulder constantly, move, change jobs. She did all the presumably right things to protect herself and the system let her down, letting him out time and time again, whether it be on bail, his own recognizance or after having served his time. I have a 19 year old daughter and this woman's story scares the h**l out of me.

    Police said Tuesday that Scott Thomas McAlpin, 25, was previously convicted for multiple felonies against Anastasia Melnitchenko, including assault with a deadly weapon, stalking, false imprisonment and domestic violence. He had eight felony domestic violence convictions in all and had been in and out of jail. But he had never been sentenced to state prison.

    Melnitchenko was awarded a restraining order two years ago that ordered McAlpin to stay away from her. But she still feared for her life.

    "Anastasia said she always believed Mr. McAlpin would kill her," San Francisco prosecutor Leslie Cogan said.

    McAlpin was charged with the murder in federal court Monday, but did not enter a plea. He was ordered to appear in court for a detention hearing on Oct. 31.
