Stringfellow, 25, of Quincy, was found guilty of second:degree murder and assaulon a child causing death. He faces 25 years to life in prison when he is sentenced June 12. The nine men and three women on the jury deliberated for a full day before announcing their verdicts Thursday evening, April 2, in Plumas County Superior Court. Stringfenow was found not guilty of committing domestic violence against his then live-in girlfriend, Demi Sullivan. It was Suilivan's 22-month-old son Braylon Duguay who suffered fatal injuries while Stringfellow was watching him alone Dec. 11, 2013. The child died two days later at Renown Medical Center in Reno. An autopsy revealed Duguay had numerous injuries over his body and head. Dr. Ellen Clark, a forensic pathologist who performed the autopsy, testified the boy died "due to multiple injuries of blunt force trauma." Clark testified she didn't think the injuries were caused by an accident. "They appear to have been inflicted," she said. She said that trauma to the head was the likely cause of death. However, the boy's body also had bruising caused by at least 10 human bite marks. See Guilty, page 5A Kenneth Stringfellow Roman Day Tomorrowi "Bus Stop" opening night, 7 p.m., West End Theatre.

An East Quincy resident said, "Snow in April is better than no snow at all!" Photo by Jenny Lee Hospital chief announces partnership with Renown Debra Moore Staff Writer Collaboration continues to be the hallmark of Dr. Jeff Kepple's tenure as the chief executive officer of Plumas Distrlct Hospital. The latest effort is a pilot program with Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno. "The goal is getting patients back to their home towns," Kepple said. When patients are discharged from Renown they typically are sent home or to another nearby facility for rehabilitation. Kepple wants local patients to come back to PDH if they need more time to transition from acute care to home. Renown will be providing a care coordinator who will know which patients are being discharged and what follow-up care is required. PDH will be one of two California hospitals and two Nevada facilities as part of the free pilot program. The timingis good because PDH is now equipped to take care of swing-bed patients -- those patients who typically need a week or so of additional care and rehabilitation before being discharged. "Our first swing-bed patient started March 31," Kepple told the board of trustees April 2. "It took a lot of teamwork," he added and described the various components that needed to be in place. The f'st patient required physical therapy and Kepple wants to add the ability to provide speech and vocational therapy as well. Swing beds will produce See PDH, page 4A
