Attorney, CHP Officer Charged With Old Murder

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, August 19, 2015

A prominent Stanislaus County defense attorney and three California Highway Patrol officers were among nine people arrested Friday in connection with the 2012 murder of a Turlock man.
Frank Carson - who made an unsuccessful run for Stanislaus County district attorney last year - faces charges of first degree murder, conspiracy, false imprisonment and solicitation of a crime. The murder charge includes a firearm enhancement and a special-circumstance allegation of lying in wait.
Carson's wife Georgia Defilippo faces the same charges, as does former California Highway Patrol officer Walter Wells.
In a 326-page affidavit, investigators with the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department allege Carson acted as the ringleader in the conspiracy to murder 26-year-old Korey Kauffman in 2012. Kauffman's body was found a year and a half later in a remote area of Mariposa County.
