The man who played the role of the husband pulled out a gun. Others involved started kicking the wife in the head while she’s lying on the floor. 

Three suspect were arrested as they were stopped in California for a traffic violation, and the fourth surrendered. They are Kiyoshi Higashi, 22 of Tacoma, Joshua Reese from Tacoma, Amanda Knight of Sumner. 

The father, James Sanders was shot three times after he broke out of his restraints for trying to protect his 14 year old son who was being pistol whipped.  James Sanders is dead. 

The ring was posted on Craig’s List for $1050.

The four are charged in the State of Washington with first degree murder, assault, and burglary.

This is another warning about Craig’s List and doing business with strangers. 

This is a cautionary tale.
