• Bail has been set at $1 million dollars each for two men arrested Friday in connection with the shooting of 23-year-old Justin Flick Grange at the Brews and Cues bar in Yakima.

    Police tell KNDO News Louis Kennedy Ayala shot Grange multiple times after he lost a bet on a game of pool.

    Authorities say Luberto Fernandez Rodriguez helped Ayala after the shooting. Both are facing murder charges and are being held in the Yakima County Jail.

  • Bail was set at $500,000 for the driver of a van that crashed Friday ejecting his daughter before he fled the crash scene.

    Miguel Alcala is being held in the Yakima County Jail.

    Authorities say Alcala faces charges of felony hit and run and vehicular assault. His four-month-old daughter was injured and remains in serious condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. The crash happened at the intersection of North Sixth Avenue and Hathaway Street.

    Alcala fled the scene but was arrested a short time after the crash. The other driver was not injured.

  • There is a new bioreactor at the Yakima Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant. A ribbon cutting ceremony is set for Thursday at the plant.

    The nearly $7 million dollar project allows waste from Yakima fruit processors to be treated separately from domestic wastewater.

    The result is a savings of $10,000 per month in electrical costs, increased treatment capacity to handle domestic waste and a new tool for keeping and attracting businesses that produce high sugar wastewater.
