  • Let's go Power Rangers!

    NEWPORT BEACH, California (Reuters) - A former child actor already facing trial for hijacking a yacht and throwing the owners overboard, bound to the anchor, has been charged in a second murder, prosecutors said on Friday.

    Skylar James Deleon, 26, who once appeared in the "Power Rangers" TV series, was accused in the second case of luring a man to Mexico in December of 2003, slitting his throat and leaving the body by the side of a road.

    His wife, Jennifer, and cousin Michael William Lewis, both 24, were charged with helping conceal the murder of 45-year-old John Jarvi.

    Police linked the Deleons to Jarvi's unsolved murder after finding that he had been incarcerated with the one-time child actor at the Seal Beach City Jail in 2003, Orange County Deputy District Attorney Susan Schroeder said.

    Schroeder said that the day before the murder Jarvi had cashed two $25,000 checks and made a phone call to Deleon.

    Two hours after the call, she said, Deleon spent $18,000 in new $100 bills at a boatyard and deposited $21,000 into a joint account with his wife. He also bought a $2,200 wedding band for her, Schroeder said.

    Defense attorneys for the Deleons declined to comment, saying that they had not yet seen details of the accusations.

    The charges were announced just three days after the Deleons were ordered to stand trial for the murders of a Newport Beach couple, Thomas and Jackie Hawks, who vanished in November of 2004 and whose bodies have never been found.

    Also charged in that case, which baffled police for months as they searched for the missing couple, are 40-year-old Crips gang member John Fitzgerald Kennedy and ex-jailer Alonso Machain, 21.

    Prosecutors say the Deleons posed as interested buyers of the 55-foot (17 meter) yacht and convinced the Hawks to take the vessel on a test run.

    Miles off the coast of Newport Beach, prosecutors say, Thomas and Jackie Hawks were attacked with a stun gun, handcuffed and gagged with duct tape. After signing over power of attorney to one assailant, they were tied to the boat's 66-pound (30-kg) anchor and thrown overboard.

    The couple was reported missing by relatives and police were led to the Deleons, who produced a bill of sale for the yacht and the power of attorney. Authorities believe the bill of sale was falsified.

    Police also found that Deleon had unsuccessfully tried to access the Hawks' bank account using the power of attorney.

    I didn't look at the article...but I'm assuming it was the one I read earlier about the dude that was on Power Rangers and is now up on two separate murder charges...

    Very nice. Tying the couple to the anchor after forcing them to give him Power of Attorney was a nice touch too...

      You have to give him credit for doing something with some imagination and not so pedestrian as robbing a convenience store or selling drugs...

        That settles it - no Power Rangers for the kids.

          Several news sources have cited this guy as appearing in power rangers, some say he starred in it. This is totally inaccurate. He is listed in no credits for any show.
