Would they bring JG back to court unexpectedly to arraign him on additional charges? Maybe for murdering Amber? Court starts at 2:00pm PT=5:00pm ET.



REGION: Gardner case unexpectedly back in court Friday
By TERI FIGUEROA tfigueroa@nctimes.com | Posted: April 15, 2010 6:21 pm

The case facing accused murderer John Albert Gardner III will be in court Friday afternoon, but officials are mum about why the hearing has been scheduled.

Gardner's case has a status conference set for 2 p.m., according the Web site of the San Diego Superior Court, and will be in the same downtown courtroom where he was arraigned March 3 in the slaying of Poway teenager Chelsea King.

It is unclear if Gardner will attend the hearing.

The San Diego County Sheriff's Web site on Thurdsay afternoon also listed Gardner as scheduled to be in the courtroom Friday afternoon. The web site, however, was later changed to say Gardner's next court appearance is August.

The hearing set for Friday comes as a surprise. Gardner, who is in jail, was not due back in court until Aug. 4, for a preliminary hearing, a key pretrial proceeding.

Details about the case against Gardner have remained closely held by officials. Superior Court Judge David Danielsen issued a gag order in March barring prosecutors, defense attorneys and their agents and representatives from discussing the case.

Gardner was arrested Feb. 28 in connection with the killing and possible rape of Chelsea King, 17, who disappeared Feb. 25 while running near Lake Hodges.

Her body was found in a shallow grave near a lake tributary March 2.

Gardner, 31, also is charged with attacking a female jogger at the same park in December, and is a suspect in the February 2009 disappearance and death of Amber Dubois, a 14-year-old Escondido girl whose remains were found in Pala on March 6.

He's going to plead GUILTY

It's my understanding he will be receiving 2 consecutive life sentences.  Count #1 murder of Chelsea King with special circumstances = guilty  Count#2 Candice M attempted rape = Guilty,  Count #3 Murder of Amber D = Guilty

John Gardner pleads guilty to murdering King and Dubois

A convicted sex offender pleaded guilty Friday to killing a 17-year-old Poway High School senior and a 14-year-old Escondido High School freshman, and he was expected to be sentenced to two consecutive life prison terms without the possibility of parole.

John Albert Gardner III, 31, also faces an additional 33 years to life in prison for assaulting a woman Dec. 27.

Gardner, whose plea spares him from a possible death sentence, is scheduled to be sentenced June 1.

His plea also bars him from filing an appeal of his conviction and sentence.

Gardner admitted attacking, raping and killing 17-year-old Chelsea King, who disappeared after going for a run Feb. 25 at Rancho Bernardo Community Park. The avid runner and straight-A student's body was discovered five days later in a shallow grave near a tributary of nearby Lake Hodges - not far from Gardner's mother's home.

He also admitted killing 14-year-old Amber Dubois, who vanished while walking to Escondido High School in February 2009. Her skeletal remains were found last month in Pala.

In 2000, Gardner was sentenced to six years in prison after pleading guilty to assaulting a 13-year-old girl at his mother's home. He was released after five years.

The District Attorney's Office said it offered Gardner a plea deal in that case to spare his young victim from testifying at trial. The offer came despite a psychiatrist's recommendation that Gardner receive the maximum sentence of 30 years in prison because he showed no remorse and would continue to be a threat to children.

At the time of Gardner's arrest in the King case, authorities said he was a focus of the investigation into the murder of Dubois.

John Albert Gardner III pleads guilty to King, Dubois murders

John Albert Gardner III pleaded guilty to the murder of 17-year-old Chelsea King and 14-year-old Amber Dubois Friday.

4.16.10
John Albert Gardner III pleaded guilty to the murder of 17-year-old Chelsea King and 14-year-old Amber Dubois Friday. Gardner waived his right to a speedy trial and in exchange for the plea, with the families’ consent, District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis will not seek the death penalty.

Gardner was charged last month with murder with a special circumstance of rape or attempted rape in King’s death. The 17-year-old Poway girl went missing Feb. 25 at Rancho Bernardo Community Park, where she had gone for an after-school run.

Her body was found in a shallow grave on Lake Hodges on March 2. Dubois‘ skeletal remains were found in Pala March 6. The Escondido girl went missing Feb. 13, 2009, and investigators had no break in the case until last month.

Gardner was also charged with sexual assault on a jogger in the same park on Dec. 27.

He pleaded guilty in 2000 and served five years in prison for assaulting a 13-year-old girl. A psychiatrist who evaluated Gardner warned he would be a continued threat to young girls.

A leaked search warrant in Gardner’s case was posted on a Los Angeles radio station’s website Thursday. According to the documents on KFI-AM 640’s site, authorities seized gardening and lawn tools – including pickaxes and shovels – and clothing from Gardner’s Lake Elsinore home.

Authorities also searched Gardner’s mom’s home in Rancho Bernardo, a storage unit in Escondido, and a car that belongs to Gardner’s girlfriend, according to the radio station.

King’s family and Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher traveled to Sacramento this week to rally support for Chelsea’s Law (Assembly Bill 1844). The new law would increase penalties and parole requirements for some registered sex offenders and establish safe zones to limit where sex offenders visit.

The bill had 16 cosponsors and the support of Assembly Speaker John Perez Tuesday. More than 150 people traveled to Sacramento for a ceremony outside the capitol to voice support for Chelsea’s Law.

Sex Offender Pleads Guilty To Murdering 2 Teens

SAN DIEGO (AP) ― Sex offender John Albert Gardner pleaded guilty Friday to murdering two teenage girls in San Diego County after prosecutors agreed not to seek the death penalty.

Gardner, 31, faces life in prison without parole for killing 14-year-old Amber Dubois and 17-year-old Chelsea King.

Gardner, wearing a dark blue jail jumpsuit with his shackled arms hanging at his sides, said nothing but "yes" repeatedly as the judge asked him for his pleas.

Amber vanished in February 2009 and the investigation produced few solid leads until Chelsea disappeared Feb. 25 near the site where Amber went missing.

Gardner was arrested three days later and initially pleaded not guilty to murdering Chelsea.

Chelsea's body was discovered March 2 in a shallow lakeside grave after a massive search. Prosecutors say Gardner was linked to the crime by DNA found on Chelsea's clothing.

Amber Dubois' bones were discovered March 6 in a rugged, remote area north of San Diego. She vanished with a $200 check to purchase a lamb she was to raise for Future Farmers of America. The check was never cashed.

He Killed Both of Them
John Albert Gardner III admits he murdered Chelsea King and Amber Dubois.

In a dramatic turn in two high profile murder cases, John Albert Gardner III pleaded guilty at a hearing Friday to murdering both Chelsea King and Amber Dubois.

Charges in Amber's death were added at a status conference Friday at 2.30 p.m.

Gardner, wearing a dark blue jail jumpsuit with his shackled arms hanging at his sides, said nothing but "yes" repeatedly as the judge asked him for his pleas. He pleaded guilty to both Amber and Chelsea’s murder.

In the plea deal, Gardner will avoid the death penalty and get two consecutive life terms without parole and a third life term with a minimum of 33 years. He relinquished his right to appeal.

At the hearing, Gardner admitted he raped, strangled and killed Chelsea within an hour before dragging her body to a shallow grave.

Gardner also admitted to raping and killing Amber one and a half hours after he met her.

Chelsea and Amber’s families were consulted in the plea bargain and understood and supported the deal.

Gardner looked and sounded composed and aware of what was going on during the hearing. He only consulted with his attorney one time when he was questioned by the judge about his plea.

After the hearing, District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis turned around to speak to Chelsea King's parents. Kelly King was visibly distraught as her husband comforted her.

Amber’s father, Maurice Dubois, waited patiently for the Kings to speak to Dumanis, before leaving the courtroom with the Kings.

Amber vanished in February 2009 and the investigation produced few solid leads until Chelsea disappeared Feb. 25 near the site where Amber went missing.

Gardner was arrested three days later and initially pleaded not guilty to murdering Chelsea.

Chelsea's body was discovered March 2 in a shallow lakeside grave after a massive search. Prosecutors say Gardner was linked to the crime by DNA found on Chelsea's clothing.

Amber Dubois' bones were discovered March 6 in a rugged, remote area north of San Diego. She vanished with a $200 check to purchase a lamb she was to raise for Future Farmers of America. The check was never cashed.

Search warrant documents posted online by Los Angeles radio station KFI640AM show investigators removed a number of items from John Gardner’s home on March 9, 2010 including shovels, pick axes, digging tools and articles of clothing -- just two days after police found the body of missing teen Amber Dubois.

The site got access to “tons of documents” according to a station employee and worked over the last week to sort through them and post them to the station’s website.

Among them are an affidavit where investigators listed specific items they were looking for in a search of Garner’s Lake Elsinore home including rope, tape, handcuffs and other restraining devices, human hair, tissues or fluids, jeans, sneakers, and several shirts including a black T-shirt with writing that said “Hard Rock Café Baghdad on the front with ‘Farsy’ script underneath the print.”

A receipt lists the items taken from the home. They include a pick ax and a shovel taken from the front of the house by the front door. From the shed in the backyard, officials took 10 shovels, two pick axes and a yellow plastic carrier with digging tools. They also seized a pair of Reebok shoes size 12, five pairs of jeans and a white T-shirt with “Hard Iraq Café Baghdad” size 2XL from Gardner’s bedroom.

Gardner will be sentenced June 1 at 1.30 p.m.
