Admitted Travis Dairy killer returns to court on new weapons charge

FAIRFIELD — One of the teens who killed the owner of Travis Dairy in Fairfield during a 2011 robbery is set to be in court Tuesday to be arraigned on a felony gun possession charge.

Dezmon “Young D” Frazier, 20, was stopped by Vacaville police outside an Alamo Drive apartment on the night of July 1. Frazier, who is awaiting sentencing for involuntary manslaughter for the 2011 killing at Travis Dairy, was searched and police said they found a concealed and loaded semiautomatic handgun with a high-capacity magazine.

In spite of the pending sentencing and the new arrest of the self-admitted felon, Frazier was able to post $50,000 bail after being in jail for a few hours.

The new arrest could void the plea deal Frazier was given by prosecutors whose theory of murder for the Travis Dairy crime was damaged by the testimony of forensic pathologist Dr. Susan Hogan and the subsequent controversy surrounding Solano County autopsies.

Frazier previously pleaded no contest to involuntary manslaughter and burglary charges for his role actions in the Travis Dairy heist that netted several packs of cigarettes and $60. The market’s 70-year-old owner, Ho Kim, was assaulted during the incident and had a fatal heart attack. Frazier faced a maximum punishment of four years and eight months behind bars. That punishment could be changed if he is convicted of the new charges.

    That's it , I'm buying a gun, cant depend on the courts to protect me, I gotta look out for myself. Can we (law abiding citizens) get a concealed weapons permit yet ?.

    Maybe soon. I believe that this will be decided by the Supreme Court, after a lower court said that law abiding citizens can. We can't blame the police. They do their best in doing their jobs. Blame our revolving door of justice in this county and the DA's office.

    I'm not sure whose a bigger loser-this fool that can't stay out of trouble, or the DA's office. Can we get it together and stop blaming everything on Dr. Hogan, or bring her up on charges. If she did all these things wrong and wouldn't come to court to testify, why is she getting away with it? Oh that's right, the DA's office with their revolving door of criminals being slapped on the wrist and set free to commit more crimes.

    Odd thing about 'law abiding' and 'good guys'. They all are until that moment when random ones suddenly are not

    It's gonna take kids like this killing another innocent person (while out on bail) before they actually seem him a threat.

    Just stack his pending cases up, his attorney can delay consequences for years with continuances, and bail him out to terrorize the general public. Solano County Court Judges don't live here so they don't give a damn.

    Nice message, thanks! This kid just gave the finger to the judicial system. So they reward him with bail? Sorry to keep saying it but this is a perfect example, the bad guys really are winning.

    Are you kidding me, granted bail???? Has the new DA taken over yet, because if not, she needs to? Maybe what this area needs is a secret bunch of vigilantes that will TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS, true justice for all!!!!!!! Remember, Charles Bronson, in the "Death Wish," series of movies??? That is what is needed in this area!!!!!

    Jess, we need to know the names of the D.A. and the Judge. JUDGE STASHYN, DONNA . Did the DA ask for bail? Did the Judge grant bail? Has this case been in court yet? Why didn't the DA demand a no-bail hold on this dangerous perp? He has multiple cases currently in court and is a danger to law abiding citizens.

    Well there you go. If Donna let em walk Stashyn is the judge, it's no wonder this is happening. She has a revolving door of wrist slaps just like the DA's office. This place is such a f'n joke.

    Agree with just saying . some of us law abiding citizens work and have family to take care of. Could the D/R help us out here and give us the name of the judge and what the DA asked for. Maybe the paper could print these judged records to help us out come election time.

    I'd like to know where the bail money came from and who put it up. This gives (literally) new meaning to revolving door.

    And if Solsno county judges don't live here that is a law that needs to be changed. They should live in the county .

    The headline is inaccurate as of noontime. He was FTA this morning. Which led to a bail increase in the latest case and a no bail warrant in the previous case. Nothing like a failure to appear to impress the judge who will be sentencing you soon--and couple that with a new offense, that just might get you a few weeks in county lockup total. We need more and more cheaper state prison cells to lockup the current generation of neer-do-wells.
