Boyfriend arraigned in woman's death
By NAHAL TOOSI
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

October 2, 2005, 2:08 PM EDT


A man accused of killing a woman and leaving her 4-year-old daughter on a Queens street was arraigned Sunday on multiple counts including murder, endangering the welfare of a child and tampering with evidence.

Cesar Ascarrunz, 32, had been arrested Saturday in connection to the death of 26-year-old Monica Lozada-Rivaineira.

Police were led to Ascarrunz by a dozen tips that came in from the public after 4-year-old Valery Lozada appeared on television Thursday.

The child, with her hair in pigtails, described her mother as looking "like a princess." Police ultimately used records from Valery's day care center to figure out her mother's identity.

Ascarrunz was remanded into custody after his arraignment on Sunday, said Kevin Ryan, spokesman for Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown. His next court date was scheduled for Oct. 17.

Ascarrunz's attorney, Christopher Renfroe, declined any comment.

Authorities were still looking for the body of Lozada-Rivaineira. Ascarrunz is accused of dumping her bagged corpse in a pile of trash on a Queens street corner.

Child welfare officials took the unusual step of putting Valery on television in the hopes that it would produce more information.

Authorities were unable to find her mother since she was discovered crying and shivering on the street in Queens. She told neighbors her father left her there and drove away.

Kevin Flood, a city firefighter who gave her a drink and a fruit snack that night, said her hair was tousled as if she had just been awakened. But she showed no signs of abuse and neglect, authorities said.

"She was scared. She was crying," said Flood, 34. "She said her daddy had left her on the corner." Valery had been asking to see her mother, but it was unclear if officials at the city Administration for Children's Services had told her of the death. A call seeking comment Sunday was not immediately returned.

Ascarrunz also was charged with reckless endangerment and child abandonment. If convicted on the murder charge, he faces 25 years to life in prison.

Lozada-Rivaineira was last seen at the apartment she shared with Ascarrunz late on Sept. 24, authorities said.

According to a criminal complaint, Ascarrunz choked Lozada-Rivaineira to death in the apartment, put her body in a plastic bag and left it in the living room for two days.

On Sept. 26, he took her body from the apartment and dumped it in a pile of trash on a Queens street corner, the complaint said.

Investigators found traces of blood throughout the apartment.

Ascarrunz told police he had cut Lozada-Rivaineira's throat in an effort to revive her after choking her, according to the complaint.

They still have not found the mothers body, and the little girl does not know. In many parts of the world, husbans kill their wives for a number of reasons and dont have to face any prosecution, I wonder if these ancient customs are coming to the USA with the influx of immigrants, also I beleive in some countries it is perfectly legal to maim or mutilate your wife or daughter for any perceived negative behavior. This is 2005 lets leave that caveman shit behind.

I certainly would not want to be the one who had to tell the little girl that her Mommy is dead. I hope the boyfriend gets sent away for a long time.

The Yankees. The hype is beginning again.
That's all anyone will be talking about for the next few weeks.
Go Boston or Anaheim!

YOu're right about Ferrero, a complete bozo. The pickings are very slim.
Bloomberg is being an ass about giving the teachers a raise. I pray to god I don't run into him on the street campaigning, coz then, it'll be

It has nothing to do with immigrants. Men from all walks of life are killing their women (and sometimes the children too).

Believe me I know that, I was just pointing out that a lot of countries still have ancient traditions and habits that find nothing wrong with this type of barbarism, Brazil comes to mind, also India


Preferential Treatment of Offenders

The reportedly lenient treatment accorded assailants in wife-murder cases is especially troubling because a large majority of defendants are already "privileged" under Brazilian law as first-time offenders.66 As one defense attorney interviewed noted, "You don't kill your wife twice."67 Because such offenders are often people of good standing with no prior record, the large majority not only defend their cases while at liberty but also receive reduced penalties.

The principle of first-time offender was introduced in Brazil in a 1977 penal code reform which became known as the Lei Fleury (Fleury Law, named after a notorious police chief who was one of its early beneficiaries). The Fleury Law affects all forms of imprisonment for first-time offenders awaiting trial, sentencing or a decision on appeal. It gives judges discretion at any of these stages to grant liberty to first offenders pending a judicial decision on the merits, so long as there is no cause for preventive detention. Preventive detention is only used by judges to preserve the public order and to ensure the appearance of the accused at trial or pending appeal. The 1990 heinous-crimes law modified the Fleury Law, exempting from its benefit first-time offenders accused of heinous crimes, including rape.

Criminal defendants should be accorded reasonable bail. However, social prejudices lead judges to release offenders in wife-murder cases far more often than in other homicide cases, even when there is a legal basis for their detention. According to several defense attorneys and judges interviewed by Human Rights Watch, an estimated 90 percent of the defendants who areconvicted in wife-murder cases pursue their case without ever spending a night in custody until they are finally sentenced, which is often years later.

In the Aníbal Abreu e Silva case discussed above, the prosecution requested the preventive detention of the accused on the grounds that he had fled the scene of the crime and retained ample means to flee the country. The judge denied the prosecution's request, leaving Anibal to pursue his case while at liberty, a status which benefits the accused in several ways, which includes exacerbating the judicial system's already chronic delay. As one defense lawyer noted, "time gained by being at liberty works in favor of the accused. Society begins to forget."68 Moreover, according to judges and prosecutors with whom we spoke, offenders in wife-murder cases often take advantage of their freedom to flee, thereby rendering prosecution—which in Brazil requires the presence of the accused—practically impossible.

First-offender benefits are also invoked after conviction. One criminal court judge asserted:

Our law is loose and sloppy. Somebody's condemned to six years for killing his wife and he's a first-time offender with a good background, he won't even serve eighteen months. He usually goes to a semi-open prison and then one year later is granted conditional liberty (liberdade condicional) which is not linked to anything. We don't even watch him.69

The benefits of provisional liberty for deserving candidates should be preserved, but judges should weigh such liberty against the gravity of the crime, the desirability of speedy justice, and the potential for injustice resulting from flight—and should not allow social prejudice about the crime to influence their judgment. The Brazilian government is not per se responsible for deeply rooted social prejudices which underlie the honor defense, misapplication of the violent emotion defense, unwarranted reduction of charges in wife-murders and preferential treatment of offenders. Nor are such discriminatory attitudes unique to Brazil. However, insofar as Brazil's police and judges legitimate such prejudices by routinely allowing them to influence their disposition of wife-murder cases, the government is responsible for failing to fulfill itsobligations under both domestic and international law to guarantee equal protection to its citizens without regard to sex.

66 Several activists interviewed by Human Rights Watch pointed out that first-time-offender status would be denied to any perpetrator who had a previous record, and that many wife-murder crimes culminate a long period of domestic abuse. Unfortunately, as detailed in the section of this report on battery, such crimes often are not reported to the police, or, more important, when reported, are not always registered in an official police bulletin. And, even when registered, they are rarely prosecuted. Thus a wife-murderer who is a "first time offender" might actually have a history of committing domestic abuse, but it would not necessarily have been registered with the authorities.

Cheney Says New York's Rangel Is 'Losing It'
By DEVLIN BARRETT, AP

Vice President Cheney struck back at Rep. Charles Rangel, a frequent critic of White House policy.

Talk About It: Post Thoughts

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


WASHINGTON (Oct. 3) - Vice President Dick Cheney contended Monday that Rep. Charles Rangel, the dean of New York's congressional delegation, is "losing it" - striking back after months of verbal attacks from the Harlem lawmaker.

Rangel had criticized Cheney in recent interviews, saying the vice president, who has a history of heart trouble, might be too sick to perform his job.

"I would like to believe he's sick rather than just mean and evil," Rangel said last Friday on NY1, the New York City-based all-news channel.

In an interview with nationally syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh, the 64-year-old Cheney suggested it was the 75-year-old Rangel who may not be up to the demands of his job.

"I'm frankly surprised at his comments. It almost struck me - they were so out of line, it almost struck me that there was some - Charlie was having some problem," said Cheney.

"Charlie is losing it, I guess."

Cheney added to his criticism later in the day in an interview with conservative radio talk show host Sean Hannity.

"I don't know what I did to offend him, but he's gotten pretty nasty lately.... I think Charlie is a lot older than I am, and it shows," said the vice president.

Rangel, the top Democrat on the House Ways and Means Committee, is one of Congress' most caustic critics of the Bush administration. He has denounced the administration's handling of the Iraq war, tax policy, and a host of other matters.

Emile Milne, Rangel's spokesman, refused to comment on Cheney's remarks.

Rangel's verbal broadsides on Cheney escalated in late August, when the same local news station asked him if President Bush was spending too much time on vacation.

"Oh no, it makes the country a lot more safe," Rangel said. "The further Bush is away from Washington, the better it is. And sometimes I don't think even Cheney is awake enough to know what's going on."

Cheney, 64, has had four heart attacks, quadruple bypass surgery, two artery-clearing angioplasties and a pacemaker placed in his chest. An annual heart checkup in July found him in good health.

On Sept. 24, Cheney had surgery to repair aneurysms behind both knees and was walking with a cane last week as a result.
