Grier D. Rush, who owns a boat company in Maywood, surrendered to authorities in Arizona as the news spread through the Laguna Hills and Mission Viejo communities where the victims lived.

Edison International said it wouldn't pursue regulatory approvals for the Arizona portion of a power line that has drawn opposition from state regulators.
