Dad Allegedly Put Bounty on Daughter's Boyfriend 

Adam Gault/Thinkstock(LA MESA, Calif.) -- A man allegedly posted signs at Grossmont College offering a $3,000 bounty for the "dead or alive" capture of his teenage daughter's boyfriend.

Domingos Oliveira, 49, was arraigned Tuesday for solicitation of murder after being arrested Friday. Police said they found evidence linking Oliveira to the crime at his home.

The 19-year-old college student's boyfriend is a 33-year-old registered sex offender, convicted of lewd and lascivious acts against a 14- or 15-year-old, officials said.

The poster promised $3,000 cash for the delivery of the boyfriend's body, complete with a picture of the man and his name. The poster listed the man as a resident of El Cajon, Calif., and enrolled at Grossmont College. Police also said the poster identified him as friends with a 19-year-old student at the college.

La Mesa Police Officer Carlos Midiro said he can't recall an alleged crime quite like this in La Mesa. There were eight fliers recovered from the campus grounds, he said.

A representative from Grossmont College said that privacy regulations prohibited the college from saying whether any of the parties involved are students at the school. But the school was notified of the incident.

Police said they were able to track down the suspect because his daughter and her boyfriend came to the police station to report the fliers. A neighbor of Oliveira next to his Spring Valley residence, Verne Howe, said Oliveira and his daughter were not on good terms.

ABC News contacted the Oliveira home but received no immediate response.

Oliveira is being held on $250,000 bail.

Photo Courtesy - ABC News(YALE, Mich.) -- A Michigan couple's 17-year-old adopted daughter and two other people were charged Sunday in connection to Friday's brutal attack on the couple. Police are still investigating the incident that left the father dead and the mother in critical condition, according to officials.

Jonathan Aaron Kurtz, 18, James Leslie Preston, 18, and Tia Marie-Mitchell Skinner, 17, where charged with open murder, attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder, according to Sgt. Daniel Drake of the Michigan State Police.

Paul and Mara Skinner were in bed around midnight Thursday when two people in Halloween masks broke into their Yale home through a bedroom window and began stabbing them as they slept, police said. Paul Skinner, 47, was able to rouse himself to fight with the attackers, and was eventually able to drive them out of the house.

The couple's son, who was sleeping in the basement at the time of the attack, heard the commotion as his father was fighting the attackers out of the house and came to help, but too late, police said. Skinner's son tried to revive him, but was unable to.

Mara Skinner, a 44-year-old junior high school teacher, was stabbed more than 20 times, but was expected to recover, police said.

Michigan State Police Det. Pat Young said the Skinners had disapproved of a relationship their adopted daughter, who is their niece, was having, and that "may have been a factor" in the attack.
