An investigation into the slaying of a Placentia girl that baffled law enforcement officials for eight years came to an end this week when authorities charged a convicted rapist in connection with her death. Raymond J. Barthlett, 34, was arrested Friday after DNA evidence linked him to the slaying of 14-year-old Wendy Osborn. She was abducted Jan. 20, 1987, while walking to school and was later raped and killed.

A San Bernardino County sheriff's deputy about to serve an eviction notice was wounded in the face and arm Tuesday morning in a drive-by shooting that authorities characterized as an ambush. The veteran deputy was hospitalized in good condition at Loma Linda University Medical Center and is expected to survive, authorities said. A San Bernardino police sergeant spotted the suspected gunman's car a quarter of a mile away from the shooting scene. The driver was taken into custody after a short foot chase.

The chairman of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors on Friday called for a special meeting next week to discuss ways to oust recently arrested county Assessor Bill Postmus from his job.

The state attorney general's office will join an expanding probe of political corruption in San Bernardino County centered largely on the past activities of the assessor's office, officials said Monday. So far the investigation has led to the arrest of former Assessor Bill Postmus and four former employees in his office. Allegations include using the assessor's staff to do political work, forgery, grand theft, perjury and failure to report gifts from a developer. Postmus was arrested in January on drug charges.

Two small earthquakes struck San Bernardino County near here Sunday night. No one was hurt and no damage was reported. The larger quake, measuring 3.4, hit at 6:05 p.m. about 12 miles east-northeast of Barstow, said Steve Bryant, seismologist at Cal Tech in Pasadena. The smaller quake, which registered 3.3, occurred 23 minutes later at the same location, Bryant said. Both were aftershocks to a magnitude 5.1 quake that jarred the area March 18.
