I hope he gets and then some. I knew Deanna very well, we used to hang out before I moved away from Santa cruz, she was a awesome person. This is just so tragic to happen. No one deserves to die like this. R.I.P beloved Deanna.

This is truly a very sad story. Unfortunately it happens everyday, a argument spirals out of control and someone ends up seriously injured or dead.

It only takes one blow to the head. I hope Richard Chavez is really taking that all in. He has ruined
many peoples lives because of his actions. Including his own.

Me and my whole family have Deena and her family in our prayers. Richard was my loving brother. My heart bleeds for what he did. Deena was a high spirited good hearted woman who did nothingbut help him. I heart goes out to the family. I am so sorry for my brothers horrific act.

Stop posting your nonsense. Your wife should have been given twenty years. My guess would be twenty to life on second degree murder charges. It doesn't appear pre-meditated. I agree with everyone; shame for the kids I hope the can heal.

I best guess, this fight was fueled with booze and drugs. It only takes that split second of stupidity and anger to ruin the lives of lots of people..many, many victims here. Johnny at the Harbor, Shaking his head again.
