    A Vista man accused of fatally stabbing a woman moved into a home across the street from her two weeks earlier, planned the break-in and stalked the victim, a prosecutor said yesterday.

    The comments came during a brief court hearing over which attorney will represent Derlyn Ray Threats, 24, who is charged with murder, residential burglary, residential robbery and attempted rape in the Sept. 1 slaying.

    Threats hid in Neville's home, on Diablo Place near Paseo Rio, attacked her when she walked into the master bedroom and stabbed her 70 times, the prosecutor said.

    Neighbors who heard Neville's screams called the Sheriff's Department, When deputies arrived, they found Threats climbing over Neville's backyard fence with a suitcase containing a stolen Xbox video game system, Trevino said.

    Threats was arrested about five houses away with blood on his clothes, deputies said. He remains held in the Vista jail without bail.

    The man accused of stabbing a woman 70 times during a violent struggle in her Vista home Sept. 1 had spent the two weeks prior to the attack staying with a friend who lived across the street from the victim's upper-middle-class home, a prosecutor said Friday.

    Deputy District Attorney Christine Trevino said there is no evidence that slaying victim Carolyn Rebecca Neville had ever met defendant Derlyn Ray Threats, who is accused of killing the young mother after she interrupted him while he was allegedly burglarizing her home.

    Trevino said evidence shows that Threats entered Neville's unlocked home and was in the middle of stealing an X-Box from the living room when he spotted Neville coming back from dropping her 6-year-old son off at school.

    Threats attacked Neville when the woman reached the top of the stairs, Trevino said. The ensuring struggle stretched throughout the home, and Neville was able to get outside at one point before Threats dragged her back, Trevino said.

    When Threats was caught, he was carrying a stun gun ---- believed used in the attack on Neville, Trevino said. He also had the wooden handle from a hammer, she said.

    Trevino said Neville's wounds indicate her attacker also used a hammer and hedge clippers. Police also believe Threats used two large knives on Neville, she said.

    Also on Friday, Escondido police detective Lt. David Mankin said that on Aug. 29, days before Neville's slaying, Threats was a back-seat passenger in a sport utility vehicle at the Escondido Transit Station when someone drove up and fired shots into the SUV.

    The bullets hit a 15-year-old boy, who was climbing into the back seat of the SUV Threats was in, Mankin said.

    Derlyn Ray Threats, a 28-year-old former Camp Pendleton Marine, faces the death penalty or life in prison without the possibility of parole in the death of 24-year-old Carolyn Neville.

    The penalty phase of the trial begins Monday, in which jurors will be asked to recommend one of those two sentences for Threats. The panel deliberated over parts of four days at the Vista Courthouse before convicting the defendant of first-degree murder, robbery and burglary, and finding true three special circumstance allegations; murder during a robbery, murder during a burglary and murder by torture.

    A jury on Friday recommended that convicted murderer Derlyn Ray Threats be put to death for the 2005 killing and torture of newlywed and young mother Carolyn Neville in her Vista home.

    Threats, 28, a former Camp Pendleton Marine sergeant, was convicted by the same jury of eight men and four women last month.

    Thank you, jurors!

    And I'm glad Mr. Neville was able to get the street name changed to Via Angelica.
