9:00 am
charles in honor of the baby's grandfather prince charles and the name arthur is a family tradition, the middle name of both william and charles. today at nine, we'll talk with legal analyst michael cardoza about the laws of dna testing as the investigation into the golden state killer continues. and we're live with oakland a's president as the team makes a move toward the water park ball front at howard terminal. and tom green stops by ahead of his performance at cobs comedy club in san francisco. welcome to the 9, lower your stress level, boost your immunity, and your memory, no, it's not exercise. it's chocolate, as we give you a nice look across the bridge. clouds in the sky, the sun breaking through. a new study presented at the
9:01 am
experiential biology. chocolate, specifically dark chocolate comes with a host of benefits. oftentimes we think it's the sugar in chocolate. in this case, they say the darker the better. these are 85% percent kakao that i found in our kitchen cabinet. i don't eat this stuff. it's too bitter. i like the hersheys with almonds in it. >> if you start eating it, i think you'll get used to it. i have been with this all morning, it hasn't tempted me once. gentlemen, are you interested. >> i'm not chocolate connoisseur, whether it's light, dark, whatever it may be. >> you would eat that? >> i appreciate the study and all they're doing, you know. >> but you're not going to change your chocolate habits? >> i don't eat a ton of chocolate. it's not going to make me eat more bad chocolate. >> i don't want to get in bad with your husband paul. i will sneak it back into the cabinet. let's stick with the big news of the day that we have been
9:02 am
covering since 4:00 on mornings on two. the man suspected of being the golden state killer, joseph deangelo will be in a sacramento courtroom. he's suspected of committing 13 homicides now and at least 45 rapes across our state. police are now taking computers, documents and other potential evidence from the violent crime wave that lasted from the mid-70s through 1986. >> deangelo's brother-in-law says the family is trying to reserve judgment until the trial. >> i'm not trying to say he's guilty. i'm not trying to say he's innocent. i'm just saying let's see how it goes. let's go through the process. >> we know that dna collected from one of the crime scenes was compared to online genetic profiles. prosecutors say at least one of the profiles contained genetic information from a relative of deangelo. >> alex savage has more details that led to the arrest. >> some incredible detective work here. good morning to you guys. investigators originally
9:03 am
compared dna samples from the so called golden state killer against the fbi's criminal data base, but that brought back nothing. that's when detectives took a unique approach in this case. according to the mercury news, they turn to a free genealogy web site called ged the open source site pools genetic profiles that people have shared publicly online. detectives took dna samples from crime scenes linked to the golden state killer and compared those to the online data base until eventually they got a match. it was someone's dna that closely matched the dna of their suspected killer. a distant relative, they believed of the elusive serial killer. detectives built a family tree, they slowly narrowed it down until finally, zeroing in on 72- year-old joseph deangelo. >> what we did using this dna technology is it didn't give us a suspect, what it gave us is kind of a universe.
9:04 am
>> if you want to have these crimes solved, perhaps we have to get used to the idea of giving up a little bit of our personal privacy. >> and this unusual tactic used to crack the golden state killer case is certainly raising some ethical questions and concerns about privacy for those who share their dna samples on these web sites. in this case, detectives did not need a court order to access the large genetic data base on whoever, when it comes to the commercial genealogy sites like 23 and me, and, authorities need to have a warrant to access their dna profiles. those two popular web sites have told ktvu they did not work with investigators on the golden state killer case. instead, it appears it was a free online dna data base that helped authorities crack this case open. >> alex, thank you, for more on the laws around dna testing,
9:05 am
we're joined by ktvu legal analyst, michael cordova, let's say you represent deangelo, and you hear this, do you bring it up in court? >> oh, do you bring it up. you have motions from now until forget about it. i mean, you're doing a motion, how good was their dna testing, how do we know they're as good as the criminalistic labs that we have throughout the state. did you need a search warrant. what type of contract did you have with the people? what about their rights of privacy? there are all sort of issues here. now, all that being said, my opinion, court's going to find all this is good, and that evidence will come in. >> let's talk about sort of from the consumer level. a lot of people don't realize when you scrape your cheek and send it in, you're giving them everything. >> no question about it, and that's why the attorneys will ask, did you sign a contract or did you just turn it over. it would be like taking a coffee cup and throwing it in the garbage, there's your dna.
9:06 am
>> if it's a free open forum and a free web site, you won't need a court order, right, compared to a private one? >> apparently not. some you do, and some you don't. that's the contractual part of it. the ones that contract with you to do your dna, the genealogy, tell you, we, you give us the right to turn it over to other people. you have to give that right up. >> when you check that box, do you think people really understand what that is? no, come on. >> it's like user agreements on the iphone. >> no, no, how many times, you go to the doctors office. you go anywhere, you go online and they say do you agree to this. do you sit there and read the five pages, you do check the box and go i agree. >> is this going to be a new way that the authorities are going to try and find matches to dna because so many people are voluntarily turning over their dna you get a warrant for a company like 23 and me after you're, you know, a suspect and
9:07 am
that's it, right? >> right. i mean, i think it's genius. the way they went about this is genius. you have the coroner in southern california on one of the most brutal murders that happened by this killer, deangelo, that's the one where he grabs wood and bludgeons the people to death, and i'm thinking, boy does that fit in with anything we heard from the neighbors where i heard one lady say, yeah he's out in the backyard yelling, where are my teeth, getting awfully angry, boy i can picture him in the house, grabbing the wood and bludgeoning these people. it just perfectly fits. >> and they said they were looking for someone in law enforcement and military background, which he has both in regards to the way some of the knots were tied and other evidence found at the scene. today's arraignment is at 1:30. walk us through it. what's going to happen here? >> you'll go into court, and it will be up to the defense team whether they're going to enter
9:08 am
a not guilty verdict or not. at some point, they will enter the not guilty verdict and a lot of people say if he did it, why do you enter a not guilty. because that's the start. you don't admit anything. you do the not guilty. then the discovery process begins, vetting the evidence where the prosecution turns other the police reports, did the, in, a reports, all the scientific reports, explains to the defense, here's how we got him. then the defense begins to build their case, and they begin to do their motions. >> you're talking about murder charges in different counties, right? >> that's going to be interesting, michael. i have talked to a lot of d a's in the state. i said will they be able to put these together. there is a code section. if it's a continuing transaction, for example, i rob you here, and then i drive to another county and i rob somebody there, yeah, then they can put it together.
9:09 am
or if there's a nexus between all the murders. i'm sure they'll try. >> sacramento county will try. >> they'll try and they will take the best cases, the ventura case, let us try it or send one of your prosecutors to help us. >> do you think the state's case is rock solid? >> i don't know yet rock solid, but i'll tell you this, the emotion in this case is so high, i know the burden of proof, you know, is beyond a reasonable doubt, that's an abiding conviction of the truth of the matter. that's how you define that. you know, i've got to tell you, jurors are going to get in there and say, okay, i have to find him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. reasonable doubt is what you want, what's an abiding conviction, could mean something to you, different, with each interpretation, jurors are going to sit here and look at this, and go, are you kidding me, a little bit of evidence will do it for me, and they don't want to be the one in the jury that's going to find this one not guilty. do i think they have enough evidence, yes, i do. i don't think any jury will
9:10 am
have a problem with this. but i always thought when i prosecuted and defended, that burden goes down a little when you have these horrendous crimes. people are leaning more toward the prosecution, they shouldn't, but they do. that's human nature. >> michael cordova, thank you for joining us this morning. >> you're welcome. >> ktvu's henry lee is headed to the arraignment. joseph deangelo set to make a court appearance at 1:30 this afternoon. we have asked for a live report on our noon newscast. overseas, history has been made on the korean peninsula with kim jong un crossing over for an unprecedented summit with the president of south korea. >> just a few steps, kim jong un made history, walking across the border to meet south korea's president for their first summit. the two leaders coming to several agreements in principle, including denuclearization.
9:11 am
closer ties, and a permanent peace treaty to formally end the korean war. >> we will make sure the agreement we have reached does not repeat the unfortunate history of unfulfilled promises. >> there will be a valuable beginning toward the complete denuclearization of the korean peninsula. >> the summit is being hailed around the world as a major diplomatic breakthrough. president trump tweeted in part, the united states and all of its great people should be very proud of what is taking place in korea. there's no legal framework for any of those proposals yet but experts say a breakthrough could be just around the corner. >> it has to start with this kind of high level political will. it has to start with the leaders meeting and seeing if they can identify a deal. >> meanwhile, the u.s. says it will continue its maximum pressure campaign against north korea, ahead of an upcoming summit between kim jong un and president trump. >> this president has said he's willing to come to the table, but he always has an exit strategy. he can walk away.
9:12 am
that's what deal maker and negotiators do. >> south korea president moon is expected to visit the north sometime this fall. before that they'll head to the states with a meeting with president trump. in seoul, south korea. do you believe the recent developments will improve the relationship between the united states and north korea, 64% say yes. 36 say now. a lot of tweets. drinking says, i'm -- chris says, i'm optimistic, but reserve judgment. i'm hopeful. i don't trust kim jong un ultimately. >> another viewer says there must be a method to his madness, trump is nobody's fool. and keep your friends closer and your enemies closer, just a thought. >> we'll bring more on the 9 at 9:30. thanks for using our hash tag, ktvu the 9. coming up on mornings on 2 the 9 new hope for a water front ballpark, and

9:16 am
a's in oakland. we're joined by oakland a's president, dave kaval in studio. exclusive negotiations there, isn't that kind of cheating a little bit, it seems like. >> we're parallel passing. we want to make sure we have multiple options in oakland. we have an ema here at the port, which is great. we had a unanimous vote yesterday, and we're pursuing the same type type -- same type of agreement with the city council. >> why not putting your chips in one. >> we tried that with the situation last year, and i think development in california can be challenging and it's just important to have options to make sure we pursue these things in parallel so we can get to an opening in 2023. >> it's hard to get done without opposition. i thought there wouldn't be any. is there any opposition to your coliseum. i guess there would be since you're already there. how do you deal with finding out who your opponents are, and
9:17 am
placating their concerns? >> i think it's important to have a positive vision and plan for a ballpark and associated development and make sure that we partner with the local civic groups and stake holders to have a project that's a win for everyone, andst that you are o intention. we're working with the city and county and port to do that. that's how you can find success. >> the one thing you wish you could change with the current site. >> the howard terminal, the transportation is a challenge. we have to find a way to get people to and from the water front and we are working on every creative idea, including an aerial tram, a gondola, a rubber tire tram to make that happen. at the coliseum it's around creating a sense of place and a ballpark district that people want to come to. >> will the excitement be there at the coliseum, the terminal is new and shiny is that running through your mind? >> well, it's a huge parcel, great transportation access. it has a lot of positives as well, and so each site has its pros and cons, we're weighing
9:18 am
those, working with the different agencies to figure out what the economic deal is so we can get to a successful project. >> in the meantime, you have to hope that your franchise survives all of this and people still come to the coliseum and keep your franchise alive. you did the tree house, keeping things, you continue to do that, right? >> you have to invest in what we have now. we need to add amenities to the coliseum, the tree house, championship plaza with the facebook trucks, great amenities for fans to enjoy our team now. >> four years ago, lou wolf, i remember him saying that the water front site was not really feasible. is it feasible in your eyes? >> well, we're moving through that process right now. this was an important step to deepen the relationship with the port to understand if it truly is feasible. i think transportation is really the big question. we have to solve that. we need to work together with the local agencies to see if we can come up with a plan. >> i know you mentioned the tram and gondola, and people laughed about it when they saw
9:19 am
it, but actually, i know the dodgers are thinking about it. they're considering it. >> they're copying us. l. a. is always copying nor cal, that's always happening. >> it's important to note that both the sites are considering the coliseum site and deep east oakland and the coliseum in west oakland. the neighborhoods could be considered somewhat economically below average. you have a lot of people struggling hoping to make it better who might not be able to afford a huge increase in rent. is that in your mind as well? >> we have to have a project that makes sure we, you know, kind of understand the local character of the neighborhood. >> respect what's already there. >> respect what's there and make sure we preserve and protect those areas. that's something that's a clear guide principle for our project. >> good to hear. >> dave kaval, always a pleasure. coming up in a minute on mornings on 2 the 9 after led was found in the drinking water at oakland's high school, how
