A Canyon Country man accused of killing his father in Santa Clarita’s only murder in 2013 had a hearing setting; a Stevenson Ranch woman accused in an alleged DUI crash, also had a hearing.

Juan Mejia, 31, of Canyon Country, is the lone suspect in the shooting of his 53-year-old father, who goes by the same name.

He’s due back in court May 13.

Suzette L. Crockett, 46, of Stevenson Ranch, was booked Aug. 11 on a charge of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated for a crash.

First degree murder charge in Canyon Country

The defendant was expected to schedule a preliminary hearing in San Fernando, according to the court calendar, however both sides agreed to push the scheduling date to May 13, said Nathan Bartose, deputy district attorney for Los Angeles County.

“They’re putting together information for my office to see if there can be mitigation,” Bartos said, referring to a plea negotiation. “There’s no offer (at this point), but it doesn’t mean there won’t be.”

At a preliminary hearing, the evidence in the case is presented to a judge who decides if there is enough evidence to merit a trial.

At approximately 11:47 p.m. on May 16, he produced a gun and shot his father in the head, according to a Sheriff’s Department Homicide Bureau detective.

The shooting took place at the 19000 block of Newhouse Street in Canyon Country, at the elder Mejia’s residence.

The son allegedly fled the scene shortly after his father was shot.

Homicide Bureau detectives worked with Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station detectives to find the younger Juan Mejia.

After a special bulletin was put out by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Mejia was found the week after the shooting.

The public’s help was part of the reason why deputies were able to find and detain their suspect for questioning, according to a sergeant with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

Detectives believe the suspect arrived home intoxicated and began to argue with his parents at their home.

Mejia first answered the charges in May, when he pleaded not guilty to first degree murder.

Mejia is being held in lieu of $ 2,055,000 bail at the Pitchess Detention Center.

Stevenson Ranch Woman Charged In Fatal Crash

Crockett is due back in court April 28 for the setting of a preliminary hearing in her case.

Crockett allegedly was driving a 2007 Matrix north on The Old Road, near Sagecrest Circle, approaching a green light in the left-turn area, according to a California Highway Patrol report.

Johnny Sanchez, 58, of Lake View Terrace, was driving southbound in a 2005 Suzuki motorcycle on The Old Road, where Crockett allegedly failed to yield to Sanchez, according to the collision report.

“She made a left-hand turn directly in front of the motorcycle, and the motorcycle  broadsided her,” said Officer Glauser of the California Highway Patrol, who investigated the scene.

CHP officers and Los Angeles County Fire Department personnel responded to the crash.

Sanchez was taken to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital Monday morning, where he was treated for major injuries, according to Glauser said.

He later died from injuries he sustained in the crash.

That’s when Crockett’s charge was upgraded and Crockett turned herself in, and then made bail.

Crockett is free on $ 100,000 bail.

SCV Dodger Talk: No rookie was more valuable or exciting than Puig

No rookie was more valuable or exciting than Puig

The five-tool talent helped to energize the Dodgers after June promotion from Minors

LOS ANGELES — If making an impact from the moment of your Major League debut until the final game of the season is a key consideration for a Rookie of the Year Award winner, consider Yasiel Puig.

He was promoted from Double-A Chattanooga June 3. The Dodgers were in last place. He was an immediate late-night highlight reel. He hit four homers in his first five games. By the end of the month, Puig not only was the National League Rookie of the Month, but also the NL Player of the Month — the first player to win both awards in his first month in the Major Leagues.

MAKING THE CASE

The Dodgers were en route to the greatest in-season turnaround in franchise history and it didn’t happen only because of Puig, but it wouldn’t have happened without him, either.

Puig hit .436 with a .713 slugging percentage that month. His 44 hits set a Los Angeles Dodgers rookie record for a month and were second all-time behind Joe DiMaggio’s 48.

Understandably, Puig couldn’t keep up that pace and finished the season hitting .319 with 19 homers and 42 RBIs in 104 games. The club was 66-38 in games he played. His average was the highest for a Dodgers rookie since James Loney‘s .331 in 2007. The homers were the most for a Dodgers rookie since Mike Piazza’s 35 in 1993.

Puig became an immediate fan magnet because he plays with an unbridled energy that sometimes turns reckless, earning the nickname “Wild Horse” from Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully. “His energy was infectious,” said manager Don Mattingly.

It also earns him occasional scoldings from teammates and staff for fundamental mistakes that are inevitable when a player is rushed to the Major Leagues with less than one year of Minor League seasoning.

“We take the bad with the good,” said Mattingly.

Puig showed up late to a game in Miami and was fined, having already been benched for a dugout tantrum thrown while he was slumping. Another time, Puig was yanked mid-game for a lack of concentration. He was ejected for his part in an on-field brawl against the D-backs. And he infuriated umpires during the playoffs for showing them up. So, there are still rough edges needing to be smoothed.

But then there’s the five-tool talent that a Dodgers prospect hasn’t possessed since perhaps Roberto Clemente. Puig’s Superman imitation started in Spring Training and continued at Double-A Chattanooga, where he was hitting .313 with eight homers, 12 doubles, three triples, 37 RBIs and 13 stolen bases in 40 games.

Puig was signed last summer for a staggering $ 42 million, seven-year Major League contract. The Cubs were believed to be the Dodgers’ most aggressive competition for Puig’s autograph. The $ 42 million was considered by most clubs as wildly excessive, but the Dodgers needed impact hitters in their farm system and wanted to make a statement that the years of ignoring international talent because of economics were over.

With a body like Bo Jackson, Puig possesses power, running speed, ball-catching skills and a powerful right-fielder arm. But with limited exposure as a young Cuban ballplayer, Puig’s raw skills were relatively under wraps when he escaped his homeland for free agency.

Puig showed up four years ago on the radar of Dodgers scout Mike Brito, who shared the credit with Corito Verona for the signing of Fernando Valenzuela 3 1/2 decades ago. Brito and current scouting vice president Logan White watched Puig bat in a controlled workout in the summer of 2012 in Mexico City, then White took the ball in a full-court pursuit that resulted in Puig’s stunning signing.

Valencia-Based Solid Concepts Manufactures First 3D Printed Gun

Valencia-based company Solid Concepts is making breakthroughs in the world of 3-D printing, a fast-growing industry that is changing the face of manufacturing.


Don’t miss a thing. Get breaking Santa Clarita news alerts delivered right to your inbox.


3D printed gunAt their Austin, Texas facility, Solid Concepts recently created a metal gun assembled only from printed parts.

Using a process called laser sintering that prints with powdered metals, each part of the 1911-style gun was printed separately and built by hand.

This breakthrough is not the stuff of science fiction, but the result of decades of development by Solid Concepts.

Though 3-D printing has recently caught public attention, the technology has been around for years, according to Solid Concepts’ Vice President of Marketing Scott McGowan.

“Our company was founded in 1991, and we’ve been 3-D printing all that time,” he said.

3D printed gun componentsAt both their Austin facility and Valencia headquarters, Solid Concepts prints parts for companies in the aerospace, special effects, sporting goods and electronics industries, among others.

McGowan said that at first the company printed prototypes and concept models, but as technology improved they were able to produce parts “used for real life applications.”

Solid Concepts decided to print a gun after receiving a Federal Firearms License, but they are not interested in selling firearms so much as proving what 3-D printing can do.

McGowan described the company as a “manufacturer that supports other people manufacturing things.”

3D printed gun testThus they expect to provide the complex, detailed parts needed by firearms manufacturers.

Yet, because of the interest this breakthrough has sparked, McGowan said that Solid Concepts may decide to print whole guns for customers in the future.

McGown cautioned that even with new and developing technology, it will be a long time before this kind of 3-D metal printing is available to the layman.

The printing machines alone start at $ 400,000 and require an industrial facility to operate.

But the industry has come a long way since 1991.

“The challenges that the industry has to overcome and the types of material and the speed of the equipment,” McGowan said. “We’ve seen those improve over time.”

“I see a very bright future for 3-D printing,” he said.

Solid Concepts also has facilities in San Diego, Phoenix and Tucson, Ariz. and Detroit, Mich. For more information or to learn about the services they offer, visit their website or call 661-295-4400.

3D printed gunAt their Austin, Texas facility, Solid Concepts recently created a metal gun assembled only from printed parts.

Using a process called laser sintering that prints with powdered metals, each part of the 1911-style gun was printed separately and built by hand.

This breakthrough is not the stuff of science fiction, but the result of decades of development by Solid Concepts.

Though 3-D printing has recently caught public attention, the technology has been around for years, according to Solid Concepts’ Vice President of Marketing Scott McGowan.

“Our company was founded in 1991, and we’ve been 3-D printing all that time,” he said.

3D printed gun componentsAt both their Austin facility and Valencia headquarters, Solid Concepts prints parts for companies in the aerospace, special effects, sporting goods and electronics industries, among others.

McGowan said that at first the company printed prototypes and concept models, but as technology improved they were able to produce parts “used for real life applications.”

Solid Concepts decided to print a gun after receiving a Federal Firearms License, but they are not interested in selling firearms so much as proving what 3-D printing can do.

McGowan described the company as a “manufacturer that supports other people manufacturing things.”

3D printed gun testThus they expect to provide the complex, detailed parts needed by firearms manufacturers.

Yet, because of the interest this breakthrough has sparked, McGowan said that Solid Concepts may decide to print whole guns for customers in the future.

McGown cautioned that even with new and developing technology, it will be a long time before this kind of 3-D metal printing is available to the layman.

The printing machines alone start at $ 400,000 and require an industrial facility to operate.

But the industry has come a long way since 1991.

“The challenges that the industry has to overcome and the types of material and the speed of the equipment,” McGowan said. “We’ve seen those improve over time.”

“I see a very bright future for 3-D printing,” he said.

Solid Concepts also has facilities in San Diego, Phoenix and Tucson, Ariz. and Detroit, Mich. For more information or to learn about the services they offer, visit their website or call 661-295-4400.
