The State

Skeletal remains unearthed from a secluded mountain grave in the Santa Cruz Mountains are those of a 52-year-old woman who was killed last summer by a voodoo-obsessed lover who later drank a fatal mixture of cyanide and water, police investigators said. Police were led to the grave of Caroline Mariano Rubia of San Jose by the discovery of a foot by a puppy. An autopsy has not been performed, but police say they are certain the killer was her lover of 20 years, Che Francois Toussaint, 47. Toussaint, a roofing contractor who legally changed his name from Charles William Turner, was found dead in his apartment on June 7.
