Jury selection for the trials of Chris Duve, 31, formerly of Lake Elsinore and Angela Shaver, 46, of Meadowbrook is completed and opening arguments are scheduled for Thursday, April 19.
Early in the week, the court heard two motions regarding the testimony and criminal history of one of the witnesses, Vincent Valdez, and the defendant’s borderline intelligence.
In March 2006, both Duve and Shaver were arrested on suspicion of the murder of Paul Cline, then 60 and a resident of Old Cary Road in Anza.
During a search of the Cline’s residence, evidence supported the search warrant for theft and indicated that Cline had been a murder victim. Cline’s body was found during a nightlong Sheriff’s 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.
