Babcock as his personal residence, the two-story house retains much of its original character. The entry opens to a foyer and a tower staircase with Batchelder tile risers. Features include arched doorways, a formal dining room, a butler's pantry, dormer windows and fireplaces in the living room and master bedroom.

After hearing testimony for three days, a judge Wednesday said a gay junior high school student in Oxnard was fatally shot in class "with the cold-blooded precision of an executioner" and that 15-year-old Brandon McInerney should stand trial for the crime. Summing up evidence from investigators, Ventura County Superior Court Judge Ken Riley took note of McInerney's telling other students about his intent to kill Larry King, a 15-year-old who wore makeup, earrings and high heels to school.

The boy who allegedly gunned down a gay classmate at an Oxnard junior high school was motivated at least in part by neo-Nazi beliefs, prosecutors contended Tuesday. Brandon McInerney, who was 14 when Larry King was fatally shot during a computer lab class, was acquainted with local neo-Nazis and kept a notebook with elaborate drawings of Nazi symbols and regalia, according to testimony from an investigator. McInerney, who is now 15, has been charged as an adult with first-degree murder.
