Humboldt Last Week is a way to hear highlights from Humboldt’s last week a news. It’s available on iTunes, SoundCloud, top podcast platforms, and at kymkemp.com

In the latest episode of Humboldt Last Week (11:10): (Warning: Explicit content) A high-profile murder that occurred in the dark of night in Manila last winter includes five young adults accused of luring a 20-year-old man out there, carjacking him, and then shooting him to death. It was recently reported that one of the suspects flipped, pleading guilty to a lesser charge of manslaughter and agreeing to testify against her former co-defendants.

In the podcast, Lost Coast Outpost reporter Rhonda Parker discusses what’s believed to have happened that night, who the suspects are in relation to each other, unproven accusations of child molestation as a possible motive for the murder, and how the flipped suspect could impact the case moving forward.

On Jan. 9 the courts are set to discuss trial scheduling the remaining suspects.

The interview begins at 11:10.
