Local DA provides more details to the big city reporters

Butte County District Attorney Michael Ramsey revealed more details than have previously been described in the media in the Sacramento CBS affiliate’s newscast tonight, in a story that comes complete with props and dramatic reading (link to video / text).

We now learn:

  • Elizabeth allegedly held the girls down for “several hours” while Kevin beat them, hence the two being tried together for the same crimes.
  • For Zariah, “being a liar and a bad influence on the seven-year-old” was what set them off (we already knew about the alleged mispronunciation trigger).
  • According to the story, the Schatzes admitted to police that they were followers of Michael and Debi Pearl.

I also just heard in the local news promo here in Chico 20 seconds ago that Zariah has been released from the hospital. Thank the Lord.
