In San Bernardino, California, we either have two related shootings in the same block or a very strange coincidence. 2 victims have been shot and killed, and a 3rd victim was injured. No one has been arrested for either alleged crime.
1200 block of N. Sierra Way (separate incidents but same block)
Victim Jared Lee Belton was shot and killed on Friday night, April 12, 2013. It was about 7 at night.
Victim Adante Whittiker was shot and killed on Thursday, April 11, 2013. The exact time was not provided. A 2nd victim with Whittiker was shot but survived. His name was not released.
There is no known suspect at this time in either the shooting of Jared Lee Belton or Adante Whittiker.
The interesting part is that these two shootings took place on the exact same San Bernardino block. While this could be a coincidence, police are obviously looking at any possible connection between these two incidents for a common suspect and motive.

The following NBC crime news video comes from the Los Angeles, California affiliate. It is about the alleged homicide of a 2-year-old girl victim and the arrest of a suspect, Amanda Sorensen. That suspect is none other than the victim’s father’s girlfriend.
The child is believed to have died from ingesting an excessive amount of chili powder. The working theory seems to be that that suspect was using chili powder to discipline the child. However, police have not confirmed that.
This is not your typical murder case and may end up being more like a manslaughter case unless there is proof that the woman intended to seriously injure the child. However, in cases where a child dies, there is a separate crime styled as child abuse resulting in death. According to ShouseLaw.com, a conviction on that crime results in imprisonment for 25 years to life. However, the prosecution must prove that the assault on the child (abuse) was likely to cause great bodily injury. It doesn’t sound like chili powder is “likely” to cause great bodily injury. But the suspect could potentially still be convicted of manslaughter or various other child-abuse or similar charges.
We don’t know if there was any kind of confession in this case. If not, Sorensen might also claim that the child got into the chili powder by herself, causing the fatal accident.
