Millete denied request to modify court order prohibiting contact with kids

CHULA VISTA (CNS) – A Chula Vista man whose wife remains missing more than two years after vanishing from her home was denied a request today to modify a protective order prohibiting him from contacting his three children. Larry Millete, 41, is set to go to trial in October on charges of murdering the children’s mother,  May “Maya” Millete, who has not been seen or heard from since Jan. 7, 2021. Shortly after his arrest in October 2021, a court order was issued prohibiting Millete from speaking with his children, now ages 13, 11, and 6. His defense attorney, Bonita Martinez, lodged a request to have that order altered. During a Thursday morning hearing she told Judge Enrique Camarena the ongoing restrictions were harming the emotional and mental wellbeing of her client and his children. Martinez said the children have expressed wanting to speak with their father. Currently, communications between Millete and the children are first reviewed by a court-appointed Guardian Ad Litem, who redacts certain portions before passing letters on to the children and vice versa. The attorney said not being able to communicate directly

Matt Araiza’s Attorney: The truth has finally come out

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – San Diego State alumnus and former Buffalo Bills Punter, Matt Araiza, who was accused of rape last year, has broken his silence after prosecutors said he was not present during the alleged incident. After the rape allegations were made, the Buffalo Bills dropped Araiza just two days after the allegations, which are now known to be false, were made. In a statement to Pro Football Talk, Araiza said “I am deeply gratified for the thorough work of the DA’s office in San Diego and for all the witnesses that were willing to come forward to tell the truth. I am thankful that the facts of this case as provided by the witnesses will prove that what I have been saying from the beginning is in fact the truth.” Araiza’s attorney, Dick Semerdjian, joined KUSI’s Lauren Phinney on Good Morning San Diego to discuss the case, and how he proved Araiza’s innocence. Yahoo Sports recently obtained a 200-page transcript of a meeting between the then 17-year-old accuser and a deputy district attorney last summer. During which, the attorney concluded Araiza couldn’t have

Chaos at US-Mexico border on eve of Title 42’s expiration

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – With the pandemic-era Title 42 policy to block immigrants at the southern border set to expire at 11:59 p.m. Thursday evening, officials around the county are asking for federal aid, even as the White House rolls out new rules. On Wednesday, President Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced a new rule in the wake of the expiring Title 42 which requires refugees and migrants to first seek and be denied asylum in another country before reaching the United States. “We are finalizing a new rule to encourage individuals to use available lawful, safe and orderly pathways to enter the United States,” Mayorkas said Wednesday. “The rule presumes that those who do not use lawful pathways to enter the United States are ineligible for asylum.” Since Title 42 went into effect three years ago, Customs and Border Protection has turned away more than 3 million asylum seekers. In April 2022, the CDC announced it would terminate the public-health order this spring. Last week, President Joe Biden sent an additional 1,500 troops to the border in preparation for the

San Diego clears homeless encampment after residents get criminal acts on video

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The San Diego Downtown Partnership’s official homeless count made another record high for April 2023, as the population downtown reaches 1,958. In recent weeks, Retired Marine and East Village resident, Giorgio Kirylo, has been publishing video of various criminal acts that downtown residents witness and endure daily. Kirylo lives on the corner of 15th and Market St., where the majority of videos took place. In a two week time frame, Kirylo shared video with KUSI that were published on our respective social platforms of overdoses, urination and defecation, drug deals, swinging large knives, and pulling guns on people walking by. Some examples are below. The various videos and interviews with Kirylo gained hundreds of thousands of views online, and those in Mayor Todd Gloria’s office were among those who saw them. Gloria’s communications director, Rachel Laing, rarely replies to KUSI’s requests for comment on issues important to San Diegans, but she replied on Twitter to the video of the man wielding a large knife and slamming it into a wall. Laing wrote, “you mean Mayor Gloria, who’s in Sacramento *right now*
