    From September 2011:


    Michael Gold confessed that he waited until his stepfather, Elmer Eugene McDonald, fell asleep in his La-Z-Boy recliner, then grabbed his head from behind and slit his throat, Gold's cousin testified Wednesday in Sutter County Superior Court.

    McDonald's body parts, except for his torso, were found at Beer Can Beach on the Feather River in south Sutter County in late 2009 and early the next year.

    According to the cousin, Kathy Avery, Gold said he killed McDonald because he was threatening to report her sister — Gold's other cousin — to police for selling drugs to McDonald's wife Lela.
    From March 2012:


    Michael Shaine Dwayne Gold was sentenced on Friday by a Sutter County judge to life without the chance of parole for killing Elmer Eugene McDonald in November 2009...

    Gold's mother, Lela McDonald, was sentenced last year to three years' probation for helping Gold cover up the killing.
