When Child Stars Attack

No, really, when child stars attack:
A former child actor and his wife were ordered to stand trial on Tuesday for the murder of a wealthy California couple who, prosecutors say, were tied to the anchor of their yacht and thrown overboard alive, never to be seen again.
Orange County Superior Court Judge John Conley ordered 26-year-old Skylar Deleon, who once starred in the "Power Rangers" TV series, and his wife, 24-year-old Jennifer Henderson Deleon, to stand trial for the murders after a two-day preliminary hearing in Santa Ana, south of Los Angeles.
And we all thought Todd Bridges and Dana Plato were bad seeds...
eMail this entry!
After reading through some stuff on this it appears the title "child star" is a bit of a stretch. Seems he was in two episodes as a non-speaking extra. It is still screwed up what they did though.
And what dumbasses at that. How in the hell they think a surprise power of attorney and bill of sale written over to them would not look suspicious is beyond me. Dumbasses.
well, stealing a large yacht is also one huge, huge sign of "Hi! I'm involved in this somehow...".
IF you're going to do something like that, you need to manage to get the yacht out of the country, repainted and updated so it doesn't look like the older yacht, and you'd better have enough money to live on the thing by yourself so you don't have to come back to the states.
