The San Francisco woman accused of using a clock as a deadly weapon will be in court today when the little hand is on the 9 and the big hand is on the 12.



Kira Roueche, 34, was arrested on Nov. 9 after allegedly beating her boyfriend, Cameron Miller, to death with both the aforementioned clock and a vodka bottle. In addition to murder charge, Roueche is facing a pair of assault with a deadly weapon counts for the clock and bottle -- with enhancements for great bodily injury.

Rouche has pleaded not guilty to all charges; she will be in court today to set the date for a preliminary hearing.

Finally, when SF Weekly asked the District Attorney's office what manner of clock was involved here, we were told it was likely a bedside clock radio. When we queried how this could be a deadly weapon, we were told that just about anything can be classified as such if used repeatedly as a bludgeon.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
