Carmichael father arrested for attempted murder of his children


A Carmichael man has been arrested by Sacramento County sheriff's detectives for allegedly trying to kill his two children.

Deputies were dispatched to 38-year-old Charles Lee Ewers' home in the 5000 block of North Avenue about 9 p.m. Saturday when the children's custodial parent reported their father had not returned the children from a child visitation, according to the sheriff's department. Deputies reported no one answered the home's front door but they could hear a car engine running in the garage so they forced the garage door open.

Officers found the children, ages 8 and 10, in the car's backseat. They were semi-conscious with serious physical injuries, deputies said. Ewers was in the front seat. All three were transported to a local hospital.

The children were described as in serious but stable condition.

Ham and Asparagus Skillet Meal

While a table loaded with food is wonderful during your Easter celebration, it also means you could have plenty of leftovers to use. Don’t fret! Those leftovers can be used in creative ways to help you make the most of every dish.

Swapping in pre-cooked ingredients in recipes not only saves you time, but also reduces grocery costs and food waste. Plus, you’ll also be building upon the flavor profile, making for a one-of-a-kind dish. No more boring leftovers!
