The Anaheim police officer who fatally shot an unarmed man in July, spurring unrest in the city, is a four-year officer who uses the nickname "Buckshot."

Tennis umpire Lois Goodman, charged with bludgeoning and stabbing to death her 80-year-old husband in April with a coffee mug, has passed a lie-detector test administered by a former FBI examiner in which she denied killing her husband, according to her attorneys.

These and other crime-related developments this week will be the subject of today's L.A. Now Live chat starting at 9 a.m. with Times staff writer/crime reporter Richard Winton. Please join us and bring your questions.
