YUMA, Ariz- Today is day 8 of the trial for Rachel Spry- she is facing second degree murder charges in the case in which her three year old grandson shot himself with her gun.

The case agent assigned to the investigation was the last to take the stand this morning before closing arguments. He admitted in questioning the day of the incident- he told Spry she could have accidentally shot the child due to her mental condition and poor motor skills. The defense council noted a part of her written statement where she said I thought I put it out of reach. He also questioned blood patterns on the walls of the bathroom where the gun discharged, saying it shows inconsistencies in accusing spry of pulling the trigger.

Court continues at 9 a.m. Friday morning.

Arizona and California residents traveling to Mexico for more affordable medicine http://yourtvfamily.com/arizona-and-california-residents-traveling-to-mexico-for-more-affordable-medicine/ http://yourtvfamily.com/arizona-and-california-residents-traveling-to-mexico-for-more-affordable-medicine/#comments Fri, 18 Dec 2015 05:21:35 +0000 http://www.kyma.com/?p=11863 YUMA, Ariz.-

Prescription drug costs in the U.S. are on the rise. A new report says drug prices have cost taxpayers over a billion dollars in the last decade. With insurance companies not able to pay as much as they did in the past co-pays are spiking and with no regulation on price people from Arizona and California travel to Mexico to get the medicine they need for a fraction of the price. 

 

Thousands of people travel to Algodones to get their prescription drugs, but Jacob Shwarz with Yuma Regional Medical Center center says you may not be getting what you are paying. “There have been a number of studies that I have looked at about Mexican medication and seeing that the drug listed is actually not found in the tablet or capsule.”

Another reason why prescription drug costs have increased is because of production and development. Industry groups say it can take about a decade and well over $1 billion to get a new drug approved, though that includes development costs for the many drugs that don’t work out.

There are local pharmacies like Fry’s, Kroger, and Walgreens that do have discounted prices for prescription drugs.

PHOENIX (AP) – Phoenix police say one person was injured in a shooting that occurred as a security guard checked out what turned out to be a domestic dispute in a parking lot.

Sgt. Trent Crump says shots were fired Thursday morning after the security guard confronted people involved in the domestic dispute.

According to Crump, shots were fired at the security guard and the security guard then fired at a person Crump describes as “the suspect” as that person drove off.

Crump says police found the vehicle at another location and then found the driver following a search.

According to Crump, the driver has been released from a hospital following treatment for a minor apparent gunshot wound.

He says investigators continue to question those involved.

Federal agencies have unveiled an interactive web display showing high-water to low-water data and images resulting from a historic 16-year drought in the Colorado River basin.

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation titles the presentation “Drought in the Colorado River Basin – Insights Using Open Data.”

Bureau spokesman Peter Soeth said Wednesday that project folks just call it the “drought visualization tool.”

It’s a self-guided tour using graphs, charts, photos and maps.

It shows reservoirs drying like puddles on a river that serves seven Western states and supplies drinking water to one in 10 Americans.

The Colorado also irrigates farms in a land area comparable to New Jersey, the Garden State.

The release comes amid projections that water deliveries to Nevada, Arizona and Southern California may be curtailed as early as 2017.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – California has added nearly 350,000 people, bringing its total population to a smidge under 39.1 million.

The Department of Finance released the numbers Wednesday. The growth covers the period July 1, 2014 to July 1, 2015.

Most of the population boost is due to what’s called “natural increase.” In other words, there were more than 500,000 babies born in the one-year period and 245,000 deaths. The rest comes from migration into and out of the state.

Five counties accounted for more than half of the state’s population growth. They are the Southern California counties of Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego and Riverside, and the Northern California county of Santa Clara.

Department officials say smaller counties in remote areas continue to lose people or post smaller gains.

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama plans to meet with families of the victims of this month’s mass shooting in San Bernardino, California.

The White House says the meeting is set for Friday. Obama is adding the stop in Southern California to a previously scheduled trip to Hawaii for Christmas vacation.

Fourteen people were killed and 21 others were injured at a workplace holiday party in San Bernardino by a gun-wielding husband-and-wife team. Federal authorities say the couple had become self-radicalized years before the Dec. 2 attack.

The California shootings came soon after attacks in Paris that killed 130 people on Nov. 13. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the Paris attacks.

Both incidents have heightened public fears of additional attacks on U.S. soil.

YUMA, Ariz. – After giving the Cibola Raiders a clean sweep last season, the Kofa Kings got all they could handle from them this time around.

Going into the match, the Kings have made it no secret they were on a mission to make a statement this season; after missing the playoffs last year with just one loss. Kofa had previously dismantled it’s first three opponents before this Gila Valley Region opener at home.

The confines of Irv Pallack Field wouldn’t matter to Cibola. The Raiders held a lead at the half that they would extend to three goals with Enrique Zamora scoring the gold and black’s fifth and final goal of the night; with about 30 minutes left in the match.

Even though Kofa was down 5-2 at that point, they wouldn’t quit. The crimson and white went into desperation mode, putting Cibola’s defense in an almost constant pressure situation; even missing out on a number of scoring opportunities.

After missing out on a few himself, Kofa’s Angel Lopez would score with just under 20 minutes to go; followed by an additional goal to cut the Raider lead down to a single goal.

With just over a minute to go, a long distance shot attempt by the Kings looked like it went in from some far range angles. But, the referees called it a “no goal”, allowing Cibola to keep the one goal lead for good.

The Raiders hold on to land the 5-4 upset on the road!
