The death of a 5-year-old Davis girl who was found dead in her mother's car trunk was officially ruled a homicide, coroner's officials announced Friday. Her mother, Aquelin Crystal Talamantes, 29, was arrested Sept. 26 after she drove to a family member's apartment in Sacramento from Davis with her 4-year-old son. Her daughter, Tatiana Alexia Rose Garcia, allegedly was in the trunk, local media reported. Her relatives called police after becoming concerned when she arrived at the apartment with the boy but not her daughter, authorities told the Sacramento Bee.   Soon after Sacramento police arrived, they discovered Tatiana unresponsive in the trunk of the car. With the help of neighbors, first-responders tried to revive her. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.

A 19-year-old seeking adventure by hopping freight trains and riding the rails was killed by three transients who were also riding illegally on the trains, Roseville, Calif., police said. Detectives last week announced they had arrested three train hoppers -- two men and a woman -- in connection with the March 2013 killing of John Paul Alpert of Palmdale. Alpert attended community college and left his family to go on a “first-time adventure” by hopping aboard trains and riding the rails across California, police said.

C.K. McClatchy, chairman of the McClatchy chain of newspapers in California, Washington state and Alaska, died Sunday after collapsing while jogging in Sacramento. A soft-spoken man known for his abiding independence, McClatchy, 62, was jogging in William Land Park, near a school bearing his family's name, when he apparently suffered a heart attack, said McClatchy Newspapers President Erwin Potts. "He was just a great friend and a great boss," said Potts, who knew McClatchy for 13 years.

Two employees have been fired and three others disciplined at a Las Vegas hospital accused of "patient dumping" -- sending mentally ill patients to other states, including California. The Nevada Department of Health and Human Services announced Monday that 10 of roughly 1,500 patients discharged from Rawson-Neal Psychiatric Hospital had been placed on buses within the last five years without "a support system/family/friends/housing at the destination," the Sacramento Bee reported.

A man who spent more than three years in a Sacramento jail on charges that he killed his 4-month-old son was released Thursday after prosecutors told a judge they could no longer prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he had inflicted the injuries. Everett Bobbylee Quinn, now 24, was arrested about a year after his infant son died in a hospital July 29, 2007. Quinn and his girlfriend called 911 on May 19, 2007, to report that the baby had become unresponsive after vomiting blood.

More than a year after a 13-year-old girl was found brutally beaten and stabbed to death in a Sacramento park, authorities said they have arrested a man in connection to her death. Sacramento County sheriff's detectives announced Thursday that DNA evidence led them to arrest Ryan Douglas Roberts, 23, on suspicion of killing Jessica Funk-Haslam, who was found dead March 6, 2012, from a stab wound, blunt-force trauma and asphyxia. Authorities said he wasn't even on their radar until DNA collected at the scene matched his. “We knew pretty early on we had a foreign DNA sample there and it was our obligation, obviously, to figure out who it belonged to,” said Det. Tony Turnbull.
