BRIEFLY : MOTHER SENTENCED FOR ENDANGERING GIRL.



A Northridge woman found living with her 7-year-old daughter in a filthy motel room last week was sentenced to 120 days in jail Wednesday afternoon after pleading no contest to a child endangering charge.

Van Nuys Municipal Court Judge Alan Ellis also placed the mother, Alison Mae Chase, 35, on three years' summary probation requiring her to attend at least 26 parenting classes.

Chase was arrested early July 18 at the El Royal Motel, 11117 Ventura Blvd., after officers investigating a car burglary involving the mother's car found her room covered with debris such as screws, razor blades, broken car stereos, broken electrical items, tools, and glass bottles.

Chase's daughter has been placed in the care of a grandparent.

Coroner probing death of ATF ATF Molecular virology Activating transcription factor A cellular protein that stimulates transcription of adenovirus E4 transcription unit, which acts early in infection at any of several 'enhancer' binding sites  agent

Coroner's investigators worked to determine Wednesday whether the shooting death of a special agent for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms was suicide or an accident.

A conclusion about the death of Special Agent Nathaniel Medrano, 32 of San Pedro was expected today, said coroner's spokesman Scott Carrier.

Medrano shot himself in the agency's downtown office Tuesday night. He had just returned from a temporary assignment in the southern United States The Southern United States—commonly referred to as the American South, Dixie, or simply the South—constitutes a large distinctive region in the southeastern and south-central United States.  where he assisted in the investigation of arson fires at African-American churches, said John D'Angelo, an ATF spokesman in Los Angeles.

Medrano had been assigned to help pursue leads in the investigation, said D'Angelo, who had no other details.

An ATF statement issued Wednesday appeared to suggest the death was accidental, saying the Coroner's Office had ruled it to be ``accidental versus suicide.''

D'Angelo said the statement was intended to indicate only that a determination had not been reached.

Plane passengers get 9-hour delay

Nearly 500 passengers waited in a Tower Air jetliner for nine hours while the ground crew tried to fix a mechanical problem, the airline said.

Passengers were not allowed to get off the Boeing 747 during the wait Tuesday night because the ground crew kept saying the repairs would only take about an hour more. Two hours are required to move passengers off and back onto the plane, said Tower Air spokeswoman Terry Dejuli.
