INDIO, Calif. - A man convicted in a horrific Idaho kidnap-murder case could face trial next fall on charges of murdering a Southern California boy in 1997.
     
Joseph Edward Duncan III waived his right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday before Riverside County Superior Court Judge David B. Downing in Indio.
     
Trial was tentatively set for Sept. 1 or within 60 days of that date.
     
Duncan is accused of killing 10-year-old Anthony Martinez, who was abducted in Beaumont more than 12 years ago. His body was found two weeks later in Indio.
     
Duncan was convicted in Idaho in the 2005 killings of two boys, their mother and her fiance, and the abduction of the boys' sister.

The case involved sexual abuse and torture.

    Coffee is life: Washington woman's hands-free drinking tip goes viral

    VANCOUVER, Wash. - With Washington's new distracted driving law in effect, holding a phone while behind the wheel could cost you. In addition to the cell phone crackdown, the law makes eating, drinking or other activities that could potentially take your hands off the wheel secondary offenses. That means if you run a stop sign while drinking a cup of coffee and get pulled over for running the stop sign, you could get a $99 fine for drinking that coffee.
