One of four young men charged with murder in the November 2000 slaying of a lawn mower shop owner at his Chino Hills home pleaded guilty Monday to voluntary manslaughter and agreed to testify against his co-defendants. Wilson Kim of Chino Hills, who turns 22 on Sunday, entered the plea in San Bernardino County Superior Court in Rancho Cucamonga. Instead of the usual orange jail jumpsuit he wore a green jumpsuit, which shows he is in protective custody.

A car used in the abduction was recovered Tuesday afternoon abandoned in the community of Rubidoux, near Riverside, but detectives said their investigation, including interviews with the surviving victims, had produced little useful evidence.

An ex-convict suspected in a string of after-hours robberies, rapes and one murder in offices from San Bernardino to Los Angeles counties has been linked to at least three of the crimes by blood tests, Rialto police said Wednesday. Among the victims was Nancy Willem, a 35-year-old rape counselor and feminist activist who was raped, robbed and beaten to death Feb. 4 in a Rialto office. Police say she probably resisted the attack, enraging the rapist.

A blues musician was stabbed to death outside the Ontario Airport Hilton as he took a break from a performance at the hotel, police said Thursday. Investigators said Neal Newman, 41, of Oak Hills was dead on arrival at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center after the apparently random attack about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. Detectives said Newman was walking back and forth near the curb in front of the hotel, humming a tune to himself, when a man ran up and--"without a word"--slashed the musician's neck.

Their families had been next-door neighbors and close friends in Armenia, and the Gumuryan brothers thought it would be a relaxing break to take Armen Shakhkaramyan to Big Bear on a fishing trip. "He didn't even have a chance to say any last words," Shakhkaramyan's grieving brother, Sarkis, said Thursday, struggling to make sense of his brother's slaying. "I just don't understand. They gave them the money, and they shot them anyway. Armen was asleep, and then he was dead."
