Prosecutors in the murder trial of retired Los Angeles Police Department Det. Stephanie Lazarus rested their case Friday after three weeks of testimony, including that of a former FBI criminal profiler who said the killer staged part of the crime scene in an effort to throw off investigators. Lazarus, a 25-year veteran of the LAPD who retired after her 2009 arrest, is accused of the Feb. 24, 1986, beating and shooting death of Sherri Rasmussen, a 29-year-old nurse who married a man Lazarus had dated.

For those who have a lot of cash or can get credit, this could be an ideal time to buy a house ? the foreclosure crisis has pushed prices down and interest rates are way low. But beware if you are looking to buy a condominium, co-op, town house or other property that's part of a homeownership group. Another side effect of the foreclosure crisis is that you could end up responsible for some of your neighbors' bills. That's because people in shared ownership communities chip in to pay the cost of maintaining the buildings and amenities such as swimming pools.

"I've been livin' la vida Yoda, and it's time to go," says comedian, writer and actor Barry Sobel, who has listed his condominium in a gated Venice complex at $849,000. A decade ago he was splitting his time between the two-bedroom "fortress," as he calls it, and the Paramount Hotel in New York City while writing for "Saturday Night Live." One Friday before a Saturday show, comic Jimmy Fallon was working with Sobel on a parody song in the unit's second bedroom/office and "Livin' La Vida Yoda" was born.

A small town house with sweeping views in the center of a gently curving complex designed by architect Allyn E. Morris has come on the market. Built in 1973, the three-story, 44-unit Lago Vista encompasses two buildings that arc roughly 120 degrees around a hillside overlooking Echo Park's lake. The units have balconies with views of Silver Lake, the San Gabriel Mountains and downtown Los Angeles. Although not as celebrated as some of his fellow Modernists, Morris -- who died last year -- left a rich legacy of innovation by delving into the design theories of Modernist maverick Rudolph Schindler, according to architect Alan Hess, author of numerous books on architecture.
