KCRA 3’S MELANIE WINGO IS LIVE IN ROSEVILLE THIS MORNING WITH MORE ON THIS CASE AND THE SENTENCE THAT SOME HOPE COULD TURN THE TIDE IN THIS GROWING CRISIS. MELODY. WELL, GOOD MORNING. YEAH. A LITTLE BIT LATER THIS MORNING, THERE WILL BE A SENTENCING HEARING AND THAT IS ALL HAPPENING HERE AT THE COURTHOUSE IN PLACER COUNTY. AND IT RELATES TO A CASE THAT WAS RESULTED IN A CONVICTION BACK IN JULY. NATHAN DANIEL CABACUNGAN RECEIVED THE STATE’S FIRST EVER FENTANYL MURDER CONVICTION IN CONNECTION TO THE DEATH OF A TEENAGE GIRL FROM ROSEVILLE. ACCORDING TO THE PLACER COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE, THE GIRL WAS FOUND DEAD OF FENTANYL POISONING IN JUNE OF 2022. CABACUNGAN FACED SECOND DEGREE MURDER AND FELONY DRUG CHARGES IN CONNECTION TO HER DEATH. THE DA’S OFFICE SAYS CABACUNGAN FACES A POSSIBLE SENTENCE OF 15 YEARS TO LIFE IN PRISON.

WE WILL HAVE LIVE COVERAGE FOR YOU DURING THE HEARING AND IMMEDIATELY AFTERWARD. WELL, THE FENTANYL CRISIS WAS THE TOPIC OF A TOWN HALL MEETING HOSTED BY SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY HEALTH SERVICES IN A COMMUNITY MEETING. AND THEY DO WANT TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT THE SYNTHETIC OPIOID AND WHAT YOU CAN DO TO ACTUALLY FIGHT BACK. SO LAST NIGHT’S TOWN HALL AT STOCKTON’S WENTWORTH EDUCATION CENTER WAS A CHANCE FOR PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT COMMUNITIES TO TALK ABOUT THE DEADLY DAMAGE THAT FENTANYL IS CAUSING. DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE SAYS THAT MORE THAN 90 PEOPLE HAVE DIED OF FENTANYL POISONING LAST YEAR IN THE COUNTY, AND THIS YEAR THE NUMBER IS ON PACE TO GO MORE THAN 100 PEOPLE. HEALTH SERVICES STAFF SAYS THAT THIS IS IMPACTING PEOPLE OF ALL AGES, BUT THEY ARE ESPECIALLY WORRIED ABOUT YOUNG PEOPLE. PEOPLE 15 TO 34. THAT’S WHERE WE’VE SEEN MORE THAN HALF OF THE DEATHS FROM THAT AGE GROUP. SO THAT’S A POPULATION THAT WE WANT TO REALLY TACKLE, MAKE AWARE OF THE DANGERS, ESPECIALLY IN TERMS OF NOT ONLY THE STREET DRUGS THAT ARE OUT THERE, BUT ALSO ANY DRUGS THAT PEOPLE OR ANYTHING THAT YOU’RE TAKING FROM A FRIEND OR SOMEONE BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW IF IT’S WHETHER IT HAS FENTANYL OR NOT. LAST NIGHT’S FULL EVENT ALSO FEATURED LESSONS ON HOW TO USE NALOXONE TO REVERSE THE EFFECTS OF AN OVERDOSE. AND EVERYBODY WAS GIVEN A DOSE OF THAT MEDICINE TO TAKE HOME. WELL, HAPPENING RIGHT NOW, ISRAEL HAS FOLLOWED THROUGH ON A PROMISE TO POUND THE GAZA STRIP. THIS IS WHAT THE SCENE WAS LIKE IN GAZA CITY. ISRAELI ROCKETS LEVELED DOZENS OF BUILDINGS THIS MORNING. OFFICIALS SAY THAT THEY HAVE REGAINED CONTROL OVER THE SOUTHERN PORTION OF ISRAEL AND THEY HAVE SECURED THE BORDER AS WELL. AT LEAST 1600 PEOPLE ON BOTH SIDES HAVE DIED AND POSSIBLY HUNDREDS MORE. ISRAEL SAYS HAMAS IS HOLDING MORE THAN 150 HOSTAGES IN THE WEST BANK. AND THEN ALSO TODAY, ISRAEL EXPANDED THE MOBILE IZATION OF RESERVISTS TO. 360,000 PEOPLE. RICHARD ENGEL IS COVERING THIS FOR TODAY. ISRAEL SAYS THE GOAL NOW IS TO DESTROY HAMAS, TO GET RID OF THE REGIME THAT CONTROLS THE GAZA STRIP. BUT HOW DO YOU CARRY OUT REGIME CHANGE IN AN AREA WHERE HAMAS IS DUG IN THE GAZA STRIP IS FORTIFIED AND HAMAS IS HOLDING DOZENS, PERHAPS MORE THAN 100 HOSTAGES, INCLUDING VERY LIKELY IT SEEMS, AMERICANS. HAMAS ALSO SAYS NOW IF THE ISRAELI ATTACKS AGAINST GAZA CONTINUE, THEY WILL START EXECUTING THE HOSTAGES OF A FULL STORY COMING UP ON THE TODAY SHOW. WELL, TODAY, THE PRESIDENT WILL MAKE HIS FIRST SPEECH ABOUT THIS SITUATION IN ISRAEL. MEANWHILE, THE PENTAGON IS SENDING WEAPONS TO ISRAEL AS THE STATE DEPARTMENT IS TRYING TO SECURE AMERICANS CAUGHT UP IN THE CONFLICT. BRANDI CUMMINGS. JOINING US NOW WITH MORE ON THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION’S RESPONSE. HEY, GUYS. GOOD MORNING. THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS AT LEAST 11 AMERICAN CITIZENS HAVE NOW BEEN CONFIRMED KILLED. IT IS LIKELY AMERICANS ARE ALSO AMONG HAMAS HOSTAGES. THE WHITE HOUSE RELEASING PHOTOS OF PRESIDENT BIDEN AND HIS TOP ADVISERS MEETING ABOUT THE US RESPONSE. THE PRESIDENT WILL GIVE A SPEECH ABOUT THE ATTACK THIS AFTERNOON. THE US, THE UK, FRANCE, GERMANY AND ITALY HAVE ALL CONDEMNED HAMAS’S INVASION AND THEY’VE PLEDGED SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL. IN A JOINT STATEMENT THAT WAS ON MONDAY. AS YOU CAN SEE, THE WHITE HOUSE WAS LIT IN ISRAELI BLUE AND WHITE LAST NIGHT. ALSO IN A SHOW OF SUPPORT. NOW, IN ADDITION TO MOVING AMERICAN MILITARY ASSETS CLOSER TO THE REGION, THE PENTAGON IS SENDING AMMUNITION AND AIR DEFENSE WEAPONS TO ISRAEL. MEANWHILE, THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY AND FBI ARE MONITORING FOR THREATS CONNECTED TO VIOLENCE IN ISRAEL AS WELL. DEIRDRE TAHOE, BRANDY, WE UNDERSTAND WE’RE SEEING THIS ISSUE KIND OF BEING POLITICIZED ON CAPITOL HILL. WHAT’S GOING ON THERE? YEAH, SO DEFENSE HAWKS, PARTICULARLY REPUBLICANS, WANT THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION TO TAKE A MORE ACTIVE ROLE IN THE CONFLICT. SENATE MINORITY LEADER MITCH MCCONNELL CALLING ON CONGRESS TO RAMP UP MILITARY SPENDING, SUPPORT ISRAEL’S COUNTER STRIKE, WITH MORE WEAPONS AND ENACT NEW SANCTIONS ON IRAN. ALL OF THAT, THOUGH, EVEN THOUGH THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION HAS NOT OFFICIALLY DRAWN THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE HAMAS ATTACK AND IRAN, NOW OUSTED HOUSE SPEAKER KEVIN MCCARTHY SAYS THE WHITE HOUSE SHOULD RESPOND BY REENACTING TRUMP ADMINISTRATION POLICIES IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND AT THE SOUTHERN BORDER AND RAMP UP DOMESTIC OIL AND NATURAL GAS PRODUCTION. SO UNDOUBTEDLY A CONVERSATION THAT WILL BE GOING ON FOR SOME TIME. DEIRDRE, BACK TO YOU. ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU. IT’S 609 NOW. THE US CAPITOL, NOT THE ONLY BLUE AND WHITE LIGHTS SHINING IN SUPPORT OF ISRAEL. THIS IS A LIVE LOOK NOW AT THE STATE CAPITOL, WHICH IS LIT AS WELL. GOVERNOR NEWSOM ALSO TWEETED A PHOTO OF THE CAPITOL DOME WITH THE CAPTION CALIFORNIA STANDS WITH ISRAEL AS THE CONFLICT BETWEEN ISRAEL AND HAMAS INTENSIFY. GUYS, WE’RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO MONITOR IT. YOU CAN FIND THE NEWEST INFORMATION AROUND THE CLOCK ON KCRA.COM AND ON OUR KCRA APP.
