    Did the title of the thread get changed or has his last name been incorrect the entire time?

    “Two men accused in the stabbing death of a Chula Vista music producer whose body was found in a drum floating in San Diego Bay were bound over for trial, a judge ruled Wednesday.

    After hearing testimony over two days from law enforcement officials, Judge Stephanie Sontag ruled there was sufficient if circumstantial evidence for Timothy John Cook to be tried on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of Omar Medina, and Derrick Spurgeon to stand trial for being an accessory to murder.”

    And Oct. 1st is the last I've seen these guys on the court roster. They are on my "daily list" to look up. But nothing...

    Unless someone can find another court site to their actual case? TIA, if you can!
