5:00 am
good morning, i'm michelle griego. >> hi, everyone. i'm frank mallicoat. it is nearly 5:00 on this thursday. and a developing story spanning two bay area cities as the search for a missing brisbane mother takes some very chilling turns. kpix 5's jackie ward joins us live in brisbane with the very latest on the search for shelly titchener. >> reporter: here on san jose avenue in brisbane there are two memorials one in front of shelly titchener's home the other on a corner under a missing persons flyer. this morning neighbors are concerned about what happened to shelly especially after hearing her husband jumped off the bay bridge. 12 days ago shelly was reported missing leaving home without her medication or cell phone. then on sunday, a woman's torso not confirmed to be shelly's was found in a marsh near the dumbarton bridge. then tuesday shelly's husband paul jumped off the bay bridge to his death. a neighbor said how he was coping with the disappearance of his wife. it wasn't so much what he
5:01 am
said. it was just his emotion and he got teary-eyed that she was mentally ill and didn't have her medication about how much he loved her and the two sons were really worried about her, about the missing of their mother. >> although paul had not been named a suspect, he was a person of interest. neighbors are wondering how it's all connected. the torso found in fremont has yet to be identified as shelly's and she is still considered to be a missing person. jackie ward, kpix 5. breaking news out of l.a. county where crews are battling a large brush fire there. we have some live pictures of that fire. evacuations are under way in the malibu area where flames have burned at least 20 acres and more to come. among the evacuees, about 300 children attending two nearby camps. some of the homes evacuated, as well. the fire started at the pacific
5:02 am
coast highway and mulholland highways around 3 a.m. new details in the case of a bay area man accused of killing a car salesman in a test drive crash. ontario police now say alex demetro was driving with a suspended license tuesday when he allegedly crashed a corvette into a tree. the collision left the car salesman next to him dead. officers there also say demetro a union city resident was under the influence of prescription drugs. he hasn't been charged. protests planned later today after uc-berkeley administrators granted an appeal to a student convicted of rape. back in 2014, protestors celebrated when a panel found omar pedroza guilty of raping a fellow uc-berkeley student stephanie garcia. the university's vice chancellor granted him an appeal and a chance to return to campus. stephanie's supporters plan to protest the decision at sproul plaza. a counterprotest is also planned at noon in that same location. apple's ceo tim cook has 24
5:03 am
hours to comply with a federal judge's order to help the fbi hack into the phone of san bernardino killer syed farook. so far cook has been very clear he has no plans to comply. kpix 5 reporter kiet do is live near apple headquarters in cupertino with more on the showdown between sillicon valley and capitol hill. kiet reporter: apple is doubling down on its stance against the fbi. the big news this morning, the "new york times" is reporting apple engineers right now are working on developing a new security measure that would make it impossible to break into the iphone in the way that the federal government is ordering apple to do so. now, last week, a federal judge ordered apple to help carry out a so-called brute force attack on the iphone of san bernardino shooter syed farook. the government wants apple to write a new version of its operating system that would allow millions of pass codes to be entered in at once without the phone erasing itself. right now, all iphones allow the operating system to be upgraded without entering the pass code. it's a feature meant to make it
5:04 am
easier to repain malfunctioning -- repair malfunctioning phones. but if the apple engineers remove the feature, and they will, the government will have to issue a whole new round of court orders essentially sparking an arms race with the tech giant. when apple appeals the court order, sources say the company will argue that the american people through congress should decide this issue. >> what is at stake here is can the government compel apple to write software that we believe would make hundreds of millions of customers vulnerable around the world including the u.s.? >> it's a long-standing principle in our justice system that if an independent judge finds reason to believe that a certain item contains evidence of a crime, then that judge can authorize the government to conduct a limited search for that evidence. >> reporter: that was u.s. attorney general loretta lynch saying the government is not overstepping its bounds in this case. apple has until tomorrow to appeal the court order. we are live in cupertino.
5:05 am

in just a bit. 5:06 times. tonight the five remaining republicans will get together for one more debate before next week's big super tuesday presidential primaries. many see the debate in houston as the last chance for marco rubio and ted cruz to slow the momentum of the front-runner, donald trump. the other candidates, john kasich and ben carson have been polling in single digits in most states. the obama administration is reportedly considering a republican as a nominee to replace the late supreme court justice antonin scalia. nevada governor brian sandoval is a former federal judge. could be a candidate. nomination of the republican could be seen as an attempt by president obama to break a senate republican blockade of any choice. new this morning, california water officials say they are able to double predicted water deliveries this year. last month the department of water resources thought it could only provide 15% of contracted amounts but it wound up receiving double that
