San Marino impostor on trial for murder; intruder shoots Monterey Park man; support for community pharmacies

News from around the West San Gabriel Valley:

San Marino impostor on trial for murder (NBC Southern California)A jury trial begins this week for Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter, a man charged for a 1985 San Marino murder. Gerhartsreiter, who went by the name Chris Chichester, moved into a San Marino neighborhood in the 80s, became friends with neighbors, and joined a local church. His friends were confused when the man disappeared, but they didn't link him to the murder of a local couple, Linda and John Sohus. Gerhartsreiter traveled the country under names like Christopher Crowe, Chip Smith, and, most notably, Clark Rockefeller. But authorities have brought him back 25 years later with a murder charge, believing a bag of bones found near his former residence in San Marino may be linked to the Sohuses' murder.

Monterey Park man shot by intruder (ABC Local)A man was shot Friday by an intruder in his Monterey Park home. The victim was shot after he and his wife entered their home on Moonbeam Drive and interrupted a burglary. He was transferred to USC Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Witnesses say two Hispanic males were seen running southbound on Moonbeam Drive after the incident. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Frescas at (626) 307-1241.

Support for independent community pharmacies (South Pasadena Patch)Rep. Judy Chu (D-Pasadena) introduced a bill last week that would help independently owned pharmacies compete with larger companies by offering them exemption from antitrust laws. These laws currently prohibit community pharmacies from collaborating with others to negotiate better contract terms with insurance companies and pharmacy benefit managers.
