Sequeira combed through this direct evidence last week with a series of law enforcement witnesses. He sought to give the seven men and five women jurors, plus five alternates, “a big picture” of the case against Warren, 31, who has a 14 year criminal record dating to his teens. He is on trial for two counts of first degree murder and two counts of attempted murder in the violent deaths within an hour of each other of a Hoopa mother and a Bayside mother in 2012.◼ Warren Trial, Day Six: The Evidence Mounts - Ryan Burns/Lost Coast Outpost 11/12/15
Two other local women could have been killed in the second murderous assault with a motor vehicle.
The evidence against Jason Anthony Warren piled up during the sixth day of his trial for two counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder. The evidence presented today in court included extensive security camera footage placing Warren at the scene of one of those murders, plus an audio recording of one victim crying out the name “Jason” as she was killed and a sheriff’s investigator testifying that she recognized Warren on camera leaving immediately afterwards with a large sword in his hand.◼ Investigator testifies to Warren’s presence at victim’s Hoopa home - Jesse Faulkner/Times-Standard 11/12/15

Suzanne Seemann, married, husband Hank, two children. These Humboldt County women didn't know each other and had no connection in life. In the early morning hours of September 27, they would be horribly connected in death."◼ Jury hears graphic audio of Dorothy Ulrichs last words as Jason Warren tells her to be quiet while whacking sounds are heard - John Chiv/Words Worth 11/4/15

For the first time in recent memory, the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office is in the process of simultaneously trying separate double-murder cases.
Prosecutors gave opening arguments Sept. 24 in the case against Jason Michael Arreaga, the 30-year-old Lucerne man with a violent past who stands accused of gunning down Harley Hammers and Angel Tully in front of a Fieldbrook home last fall. Then, four days later, special prosecutor Paul Sequeira began the process of selecting a jury to hear the case against Jason Anthony Warren, who is accused of murdering Dorothy Ulrich and Suzanne Seemann in 2012.
Jury selection may take awhile in the Warren case, which will see full days of trial testimony and is expected to stretch into December. Meanwhile, the Arreaga case, which is being handled by Deputy District Attorney Zach Curtis, is expected to conclude by early November.
