Jeffrey Duvardo, 44, was convicted of elder abuse and two counts of first-degree murder with a special circumstance by a jury of seven men and five women in a Northern California courtroom.

The basics One of eight towns that make up the city of Santa Clarita, Valencia is a planned community 35 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles. Created by Newhall Land & Farming Co. in the mid-1960s, Valencia was designed by urban planner Victor Gruen, who believed residents should be able to walk or bicycle to nearby destinations without having to cross busy streets in much the same style as some European towns.

Authorities are searching for a man suspected of robbing the same Valencia bank three times in six months, the FBI said Wednesday. The robber walked into a First Interstate bank at 24301 Magic Mountain Parkway about 3 p.m. Tuesday and took $3,800 from a teller, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said.

An 80-pound female mountain lion found sleeping in a Valencia resident's backyard was shot to death Tuesday by state Fish and Game officials, who say the animal posed too great a threat to capture. The incident began at 6:45 a.m. Tuesday when Lori Powers, who lives in the 23900 block of Rotunda Road, saw the lion resting on her patio, just inches from her sliding glass door. "She looked at me, I looked at her and it just moseyed away," Powers said.

Forget the red bow and the boughs of holly. Nick Kobe is decking his yard with a leather-clad Santa riding an actual Harley-Davidson motorcycle. In some neighborhoods, people might find such a flourish outrageous, perhaps even an eyesore. But here it constitutes just a small fraction of the blinking, mechanized splurge that has turned tiny Rio Reyes Court just off Bouquet Canyon Road into the Santa Clarita Valley's version of Candy Cane Lane.
