James Myers spent Presidents' Day hunkered for hours in a van parked on a Los Angeles street corner. Long hours of surveillance, even on holidays, are not unusual for Myers, a private investigator who owns his own firm and specializes in insurance fraud. Myers, 51, of Anaheim Hills, learned the trade during five years of working for the FBI in Los Angeles. "In those days, the FBI used to investigate insurance cases," said Myers, whose wife is also a private eye and his business partner.

A man accused of fatally shooting his brother-in-law in an alleged dispute over video games is scheduled to be charged in court Monday. Paul Myers, 30, was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of gunning down brother-in-law Jason Weaver, 26, in the garage at Myers' Moorpark home. Myers was due in court Friday to enter a plea to a charge of murder, but prosecutors say a paperwork delay prevented them from bringing charges. The hearing was postponed until Monday.

Homick, 48, was convicted in the slayings that occurred Dec. 11, 1985.
