6A Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2001 Court News 1 1 By Dave Keller Staff Writer Two psychologists have been appointed by a Plumas County+judge to examine ac- cused killer Rain Dancer Dickey-O'Brien, who may not be mentally competent to stand trial.

Rockey Marino, 20, faces up to four years in state prison for the offense, which took place last month. But, as part of his plea deal with Jeff Cunan, the deputy district attorney, Marino could get less time. The probation department will conduct a report and then make a recommendation about Marino's punishment to Superior Court Judge Ira R. Kaufman. The defendant will be sen- 1 tenced at a Nov. 9 hearing. Marino also pied no contest to a misdemeanor count of forgery. Two other defendants in the case--Norman B. Frost and Aristeo Chavez--were sched- uled to face a hearing Oct. 16 to determine whether they should face felony charges. But it was possible Frost and Chavez may have entered pleas Oct. 15 at pretrial con- ferences. The cases involving the three other defendants--Julie M. Farry, Rolanda Openshaw and Geoffrey R. Brister--have been severed by Kaufman be- cause they are charged only with misdemeanor drug in- toxication charges. 1 This fall, Plumas County able in the County.

There will be one viewing By Dave Keller Staff Writer A Chester man accused of stabbing his father faces felony assault charges. Ian Barenchi was originally arrested by the sheriff's de- partment on an attempted murder charge. But, concluding that it had insufficient evidence, the Plumas County District Attor- ney's office filed assault charges instead. According to a sheriffs de- partment report, Barenchi al- legedly attacked his father at a Bridge Street residence. Barenchi allegedly tried to stab his father in the chest but missed, allegedly slashing him on the left hand instead, the sheriff's department re- ports. In addition, Barenchi al- legedly stabbed a dog during the Oct. 9 incident. Barenchi was scheduled to be arraigned in Plumas Coun- ty Superior Court Monday. In the June 20 edition of the newspaper, it was incorrectly reported in an article about Plumas County's family court services that among the problems a consultant said she "encountered was animosity toward current family court me- diator Shelley Meredith." The consultant, Sandra Parnell, did not say she encountered animosity toward Meredith. Irl I -- --J , 7 . . I I IIII I I III I ..+ .....
