In March 2006, Chris Duve, 31, formerly of Lake Elsinore and Angela Shaver, 46, of Meadowbrook were arrested on suspicion of the murder of Paul Cline, then 60 and a resident of Old Cary Road in Anza.
Jury selection, for separate trials for both suspects, is likely to begin this week.
Meanwhile, Judge Kelly L. Hansen is considering Duve’s defense attorney Stephen Sweigart’s pre-trial motions regarding Duve’s initial Miranda rights and suppression of statements made between Duve and Shaver.
Investigators from the Riverside County Sheriff ’s Hemet Station responded to reports of a theft at the Cline residence. They served a search warrant at the residence on evening of March 21, 2006.
During a search, evidence supported the search warrant for theft and indicated that Cline had been the victim of a murder.
Cline’s body was found during a nightlong homicide team investigation of his home and a nearby hillside north of Bautista Road in Anza.
According to the Central Homicide Unit, Duve and Shaver were “friends or acquaintances” of Cline.
