[Excerpts] A former Siskiyou County sheriff's deputy and Weed police officer entered not guilty pleas Tuesday to charges he tried to kill his estranged wife. Keith Alan McIntosh, 47, was arrested Jan. 18 after Redding police found him locked in a frantic struggle with his wife, Renee Sue McIntosh, and three neighbors...

McIntosh also called his mother earlier in the day to tell her that "if anything happens to me, I want you to take care of the dog"... After the call, he made a call to his wife, who had just gotten back from a camping trip with her former neighbors and was staying at their house next door.

After the call, McIntosh went next door and knocked. When his wife answered the door, he grabbed her by the shirt and pulled her outside, Wilson said. McIntosh yanked her by the hair to the ground and tried to "choke her out," Wilson said. During the scuffle, she saw him pull out a loaded 9 mm pistol from the small of his back and point it at her head...

McIntosh waived his right to a preliminary hearing in front of Shasta County Superior Court Judge Wilson Curle... [Investigator Rob] Wilson said assault rifle charges also may follow. Investigators seized nine firearms from McIntosh's home, including a Colt AR-15, an HK 93 and a Ruger Mini 14, according to Wilson's affidavit... [Full article here]
