NEVADA COUNTY, Calif. - New evidence has been found in the murder of a Nevada County Vietnam veteran.

A team from the Human Identification Laboratory at Chico State joined deputies in identifying the new clues.

Deputies say 70 year old Stanley Norman's life ended in a violent attack in the backyard of a Nevada City home. On Friday investigators served a search warrant at the property. They found human teeth, bone fragments, and rings.

Investigators warned that there are a lot of details that are going to come out that don't paint a pretty picture of how Stan Norman's life ended.  They said that the puzzle pieces are falling into place due to the amazing team of professionals that are working to figure out what exactly happen to the veteran.

Two men are now under arrest in the murder and torture case. Police arrested Sean Bryant over Memorial Day weekend. Investigators arrested a second suspect, Michael Mccauley, a week ago.

Both will be formally charged this week

Showers are tapering off early Tuesday, and we're left with areas of dense fog for your Tuesday morning commute. We'll have clearing skies and warmer temperatures ahead for your Tuesday afternoon, but the next wet system will arrive on Wednesday. Some showers will linger Thursday, but we'll dry and and become chilly late this week. A substantial wet system will then bring heavy rain and snow to our region from Sunday through at least the start of next week.
