Correction: Beach Slayings story
SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) — In a story May 16 about an arrest in the 2004 killing of a Midwestern couple, The Associated Press reported erroneously the name of one victim. She was Lindsay Cutshall, not Lindsay Cushall.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Man charged with 2004 Northern California beach slayings
A Northern California man has been charged with killing a Midwestern couple as they slept on a remote beach more than a decade ago
SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California man has been charged with killing a Midwestern couple as they slept on a remote beach more than a decade ago.
Authorities Wednesday said Shaun Gallon of Forestville was charged last week with two counts of murder. He appeared in Sonoma County Superior Court on Monday but didn’t enter a plea.
Prosecutors say Gallon used a rifle to shoot 22-year-old Lindsay Cutshall of Ohio and her fiance, 26-year-old Jason Allen of Michigan, as they lay in sleeping bags on Fish Head Beach in Jenner in August of 2004.
Authorities say Gallon didn’t know the couple, who were on a sightseeing trip.
Gallon already was charged with shooting to death his brother last year and trying to kill a man with a package bomb in Guerneville in 2004.
