District Judge Kenneth Martinez today denied a motion to acquit Ronald Santiago, who is charged with the murders of John and Bernadette Ohlemacher in their Paradise Hills home in 2005.

Attorneys for Santiago had asked the judge for a directed verdict of acquittal.

The prosecution rested earlier today, and the first defense witness is scheduled to testify this afternoon. The defense has estimated two days for its witnesses, so closing arguments are likely to be made later this week before the case goes to the jury.

Santiago, a former loan processor at Countrywide Mortgages, had worked on a loan application for the Ohlemachers, and that knowledge is what led law enforcement to look at him as a suspect.

BC-EU--Russia-Underwear Ban-ref
Trade ban has Russia's knickers in a twist

This photo taken on Sunday, Feb. 16, 2014, shows women during a protest against the ban of lace underwear  in Almaty, Kazakhstan. A trade ban on synthetic underwear has Russia and her economic allies with their knickers in a twist. Post-Soviet consumers reacted with dismay to news that synthetic underwear will be banned within the Eurasian Economic Commission, which regulates a customs union between Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, from July 1. Consumer outcry against the restrictions reached a fever pitch after a Sunday protest in the capital of Kazakhstan, where thirty women wore lace underwear on their heads and shouted "Freedom to panties!" as they were shoved into police vehicles.

Many see the underwear ban as yet another example of the misguided economic policies of many post-Soviet countries
