About $900 has been raised by employees at Bob's Big Boy restaurants around Orange County for the 21-month-old daughter of a waitress killed Jan. 5. Organizers collected the last of the donations last week, said Elliot Sousa, manager at the Huntington Beach Big Boy where Tammy Davis, 19, worked as a waitress before being shot just minutes after getting off work. The suspect in the case is Brian Keith Framstead, Davis' former boyfriend and father of their daughter.

Brian Framstead, who shot to death his former girlfriend--the mother of his child--and then set himself afire, was sentenced to 29 years to life in prison Friday for first-degree murder. The sentence came almost two years to the day that the 30-year-old Inglewood cabinetmaker stalked Tammy Davis, forced her into his car and, after she fled, shot her at close range with a sawed-off shotgun in Huntington Beach.

A two-thirds vote on property tax increases is the only safeguard homeowners have against the ever-present and always greedy political forces that would drive those taxes to levels unreachable by most residents. Since roughly a third of the people living in California are actually living in homes they own, it seems reasonable that they have a voting voice equal to the two-thirds of non-taxpaying residents who find it quite easy to vote for property increases, especially for "good" causes.

Brian Framstead was convicted Wednesday of first-degree murder in the killing of Tammy Davis of Stanton, his former girlfriend and the mother of his child, after she ended their stormy relationship. Framstead, 30, of Inglewood, who drove into the desert and set himself on fire after the killing, took a deep breath as the clerk read the words that could imprison him for 30 years to life: guilty of using a firearm in a premeditated murder.

Brian Framstead, on trial for murdering his girlfriend because she jilted him, testified Tuesday that she hurt and angered him by lying about her activities and whereabouts in the weeks before her death.

Brian Framstead, who made headlines last year when he killed his girlfriend and set himself on fire, so passionately needed a happy, stable family life that he murdered the young woman because she broke off their relationship, a prosecutor told jurors Thursday. His face and head covered with burn scars, Framstead stared blankly ahead as lawyers sketched conflicting portraits of him on the opening day of his trial in Orange County Superior Court.

Hanging his head and fighting tears, Brian Framstead on Wednesday recounted the last minutes of his girlfriend's life as she crouched on a stranger's doorstep, cowering before the shotgun in his hand. "I heard a noise," Framstead testified in almost a whisper. "I turned real fast to see if someone was coming out from the door. . . . When I turned, the gun went off."

Waiting tables on the last night of her life, Tammy Davis knew danger was on the way. Every few minutes, she would peer nervously out the big glass windows of Bob's Big Boy, convinced her ex-boyfriend would drive up with a gun. The 19-year-old told friends that night that Brian Framstead, the man she once loved and the father of her child, had been demanding to see their baby before he began a six-month jail term. Frightened of his past outbursts, she had refused.

Orange County prosecutors filed murder charges against an Inglewood man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend. Brian Keith Framstead, 29, was in critical condition at San Bernardino County Medical Center with burns over much of his body, suffered when he doused himself with gasoline and set his car afire near Victorville. "We could arraign him right in the hospital room, but I'm not even sure he's coherent," Deputy Dist. Atty. Charles J. Middleton said.

Employees at a Bob's Big Boy are leading a countywide effort to raise money for the 21-month-old daughter of a waitress there who was fatally shot just minutes after leaving work. All of the Bob's Big Boy restaurants in Orange County are involved in the fund-raiser, which began a few days after Davis' death on Jan. 5. The Huntington Beach Bob's has raised at least $200 in donations from customers and employees, and other locations report similar amounts.
