Paul Harris, the 75-year old Chalfant man arrested in the death of his wife Lee, will be in Bridgeport Court today for a status conference.
According to prosecutor David Anderson, the initial charge was voluntary manslaughter, but as of late last week, Harris will be facing first degree murder charges.
Anderson would not confirm or deny any of the rumors that have circulated since Harris’ arrest June 19 as the case is still under investigation. He did say the District Attorney’s office and Mono County Sheriff are not looking for any other deceased family members on the property, Harris Haven Farms.
Mono deputies were called to the property for a welfare check early on June 19 and discovered the body of Lee Harris.
