San Francisco StarSan Francisco Star – San Francisco News Headlines, Local & Global
The San Francisco Star is essentially a local San Francisco newspaper, but with a national and international perspective, designed to provide readers with a one-stop shop for San Francisco, national US, regional, and world news coverage, weather and sports information, with live updates on breaking business stories, and what's happening in the financial markets. The biggest advantage we have is that we are an online newspaper, which means we are constantly refreshing our stories as more and more information comes to hand. Often when a story breaks the initial details are sketchy. We and our sources around the world work hard to gather more information, verify facts, and provide a perspective of the major stories. Expert opinion often accompanies our articles to better inform readers, and provide a more complete understanding of the news we deliver. Financial markets and business reports are regular features as we pin down what's happening, and constantly refresh stock market indice readings, dollar currency rates, and breaking business news reports. Our world sports coverage is a priority, as is our regional news. We like to think if you're looking for breaking news out of San Francisco, California, the United States, or the world, you'll look for it first at the San Francisco Star.
Authorities have arrested the 12-year-old brother of an 8-year-old girl who was mysteriously stabbed at her home in a rural Northern California community last month.
CBS News quoted Calaveras County Sheriff Gary Kuntz, as saying that the boy will be charged with homicide.
The boy had told police last month that he encountered an intruder in the home on the day Leila Fowler was killed. He described the man as being tall with long gray hair.
The April 27 attack shook the tight knit Valley Springs community of about 7,400 people and set off a massive manhunt. Investigators did a door-to-door sweep of houses, storage sheds and horse stables. (ANI)
