OJAI : Man Checking Attic Wires Electrocuted

An Oxnard electrician checking wires in the attic of an Ojai house Tuesday apparently electrocuted himself, authorities said.

The 43-year-old man, who was working in a house in the 600 block of Del Norte Road, sent his partner to pick up some parts about 5 p.m. When the partner returned, he found the man dead with electrical burns on his face, chest and right hand, said Lt. Joe Funchess of the Ventura County Sheriff's Department.

The Ventura County coroner's office could not release the victim's name Tuesday evening.
