Hawaii girl's killer's son arrested
The father murdered 7-year-old Xiana Fairchild in 1999
MARTINEZ, Calif. » The teenage son of a man who killed a girl who once lived in Hawaii was arrested in an unrelated murder case, authorities said.
Police described Curtis Dean Anderson Jr., 19, as the suspected triggerman in the Nov. 25 slaying of acquaintance Vance Fisher, 31, in Richmond, said Richmond police Lt. Alec Griffin.
Curtis Dean Anderson Sr., 44, pleaded guilty last month to the 1999 kidnapping, molestation and murder of a former Hawaii girl, 7-year-old Xiana Fairchild.
He was sentenced to 50 years to life in prison on top of the 251-year sentence he already was serving for kidnapping and sexually assaulting another Vallejo girl in 2000.
Anderson Jr. was arrested at a friend's apartment on Thursday and remained in custody Friday at Contra Costa County jail in Martinez in lieu of $1 million bail, jail officials said.
His mother, Kimberly Sigler, 37, who lived at the house where Fisher was killed, was arrested in November in connection with the case but was later released. No charges were filed against her.
