L.A. Now Live: LL Cool J, Natalie Wood and a celebrity-crime recap

August 22, 2012 |  8:42 am

Times crime reporters Richard Winton and Andrew Blankstein will join L.A. Now Live for a discussion of some of the latest stories on their beat, including details on LL Cool J, who police said thwarted a burglary at his Studio City home Wednesday morning.

The live chat is scheduled for 9 a.m., and Winton and Blankstein will be available to take questions.

In other celebrity news, Los Angeles coroner's officials have amended the death certificate for actress Natalie Wood. Renewed efforts to resolve the mystery of her death have provided few answers, and the case remains open.

Winton will also have the latest on the arrest of a top U.S. tennis umpire, Lois Goodman, who was apprehended in New York as she was preparing to officiate at the U.S. Open. Authorities said she bludgeoned her 80-year-old husband with a coffee mug, but told investigators he died in a fall down the stairs.
