The attorney is typical of trying to get a killer off by insanity. The truth is someone saw Jarrod killing Taylor. My question is why do we have to take care of the killer now and give him an attorney and all the other crap. He was caught red handed and there was a girl there to, so why not just get rid of this killer and be done with it, o i forgot the attorney needs money, poor attorney needs to make money,so hes going to help poor defensless little Jarrod who mutilated a young boy who just turned 21, attorneys make me sick,and there only there for you to take advantage of all the money they can suck out of you,they are blood suckers,and help to keep viruses like Jarrod around for all of us to feed and house,isnt that nice,the attorney doesnt even care about Taylor 21!! The only time it sinks in is when its one of theres. Taylor was a good kid, who looked up to Jarrod to teach him marShal arts. And Taylor basically gave his life to save the girl who was there.Taylor is a HERO!And Jarrod should have beed given a bullet right between the eyes.

o and the sheriffs dept is crying like a little bitch now cause they dont want Jarrod housed in the local jail, lol they are afraid he will hurt one of them or staff,they want him put at pelican bay state prison,why should the correctional officers have to take him? after all i can remember when the cops and hiway patrol said that the correctional officers are over paid and dont earn there money and that prison guards dont have a dangerous job,and that guards shoulnt get paid for the job they do, so with that being said,i say.let the sheriffs dept keep him. Its just goes to show you who the real little whinners are,im so thankful we have REAL MEN AND WOMEN who watch out for us, Thankyou pelican bay guards for housing the worst killers ever,and dont expect us out here to respect the cops in this town or the hiway patrol,there all of abunch of whinny bitches who get paid 3 times more than our guards.I say give the guards back there money and pay the hiway patrol less,the hiway patrol gets to carry heat to protect themselves and they have a car to get away. guards cant pack heat,they have to go it alone and keep killers off our streets.O and lets not forget our D.A. of crescent city,hes such a upstanding citizen to. What a pillar of the community he is! You can read about him about every other week here lately!!

Wyatt enters not guilty plea

Judge inclined to deny request to move suspect to Pelican Bay

The attorney representing Jarrod Wyatt entered a not guilty plea on behalf of his client during a brief court appearance Thursday.

Wyatt, 26, is suspected of killing 21-year-old Crescent City resident Taylor Powell in Klamath last Sunday, and in addition to murder is accused of aggravated mayhem, torture and special allegations of using a “sharp bladed instrument” as a deadly weapon.

There was some confusion over what was supposed to happen at Thursday’s proceeding as Wyatt’s attorney, James Fallman, had brought witnesses to the courtroom to argue against a “safe keeper” motion that aims to move his client from the Del Norte County Jail to Pelican Bay State Prison over security concerns.

A hearing on that matter is now scheduled for Tuesday, and Del Norte Superior Court Judge William Follett said he is inclined to deny the request to move Wyatt because a declaration written by Sheriff’s Office Cmdr. Bill Steven is based in large part on “hearsay.”

Steven’s declaration, which was filed earlier this week, states Wyatt had been involved in a number of alleged assaults in the weeks leading up to Powell’s murder. It also states Wyatt’s mother — who is one of Fallman’s witnesses for the upcoming hearing — has described her son as a “very dangerous person who has the potential to harm jail staff” due to his training as a mixed-martial arts fighter.

Some of the other concerns Steven noted in his declaration included attempts by Wyatt to kill himself and occasions where he supposedly was hearing voices instructing him to do “violent things.”

Fallman did not waive time for his client’s preliminary hearing, something Follett said was “unusual in a case like this.” That proceeding is scheduled for April 13, with a readiness

conference set on the day before.

During the preliminary hearing, Fallman said he expects to present an “affirmative defense,” which he explained after Thursday’s court proceedings as “something you can put on at the (preliminary hearing) that may tend to negate a crime or lower the degree of the crime or establish a full or partial defense.”

Wyatt was arrested early Sunday morning at his residence in Klamath after Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a 911 call about a possible stabbing on Fizer Road.

Powell was found dead inside the house, and Wyatt was taken into custody without resisting.
