    Three generations of the Aggas were in court.

    Arnold Aggas Sr: facing charges of murder, several charges of rape, sodomy of child under 14 with force, rape of unconcious victim, charge of forcible oral copulation. ( murder charge in connection to Kimberlie)

    Arnold Aggas Jr. and his daughter Brittney Trifaro-Aggas:

    attempted murder, aggravated mayhem, mayhem and assault with a deadly weapon. Brittney is charged with being an accessory to a crime and inducing false statements during the investigation.
    Those charges stem from Jr. stabbing his roommate.

    Sisikyou County DA is interviewed re: cold cases. Hannah Zaccaglini. K. Katonen both going through the courts.

    Very hard to prove since no body. Have suspect in custody. Suspect might also have connection to Karen Marrow.

    Bringing cases to trial very hard they have to establish that victims aren't alive.

    Arnold Aggas is the man charged in this case. Says her body was placed at the bottom of the Klamath River. Still, case will be hard.

    DA says it is rare to open a cold case and it usually takes DNA to do it.

    --please excuse the quick transciption

    Although it says that Kimberlie was seen at Aggas' home the day she went missing, I can't find anything that describes the relationship between the two. I also didn't see anything that mentioned who the father of Kimberlie's baby was, or if she was married or had a boyfriend. Was it possibly Aggas?

    Aggas Jr. was the father of the baby.

    Kantonen’s mother, Shirley Hall, described her daughter’s life, saying that Kantonen did not deserve what happened to her.
    “How could you kill your own grandchild?” Hall asked. “That’s something that’s not even human.”
    Aggas received the maximum sentence of 13 years, minus the time he served in jail awaiting trial. In all, he will likely spend eight-and-half years in prison, according to District Attorney Kirk Andrus.
    Hopefully he will reveal where Kimberlie is.
