Glendale family, LCF resident to have preliminary hearing
GLENDALE -- A preliminary hearing was set Tuesday for a Glendale
family accused of abusing mentally ill adults by housing them in
squalid care facilities and siphoning money from their bank accounts.
Abraham DeGuzman, 52, Alicia DeGuzman, 48, and Abraham's mother,
Natalie Buendia, 73, will appear in court Jan. 29 for their
preliminary hearing. Devere McGuffin, 59, of La Canada Flintridge and
then-chief executive officer of Glendale-based California Adventist

Court cases delayed for local men
GLENDALE -- A preliminary hearing in one Glendale case was
rescheduled for Monday to allow one of the defendant's attorneys
continue trial in an unrelated case, while a La Canada Flintridge man
was ordered to return in February to set a date for his hearing.
Edgar Hatamian, 21, Gagik Galoyan, 53, Gayk Tadevosyan, 38,
Andranik Safaryan, 24, all of Glendale, and Edvard Gyulnazaryan, 40,

people in an alleged murder-for-hire ring. The preliminary hearing
will take place Monday and a judge will ultimately decide if enough
evidence exists to send the case to a trial. Each man was being held
Tuesday for bail amounts ranging from $2 million to $10 million.
Timothy Whelan, 35, of La Canada Flintridge was also being held
Monday without bail for allegedly killing three people, including two
children, after crashing into the car in which they were riding on
