Man Indicted in Slaying of Wife

Three months after charging his lover with murder, the Ventura County Grand Jury indicted an Oxnard grocery clerk Friday in the kidnapping and slaying of his wife.

Police took Michael Dally, 36, into custody at his Ventura home after the grand jury indicted him on charges of murder, kidnapping, conspiracy to commit kidnapping and murder with special circumstances of lying in wait and financial gain.

His longtime girlfriend, Diana Haun, 35, was re-indicted on the same charges. She had been charged with all the same offenses in August except for the special circumstance of financial gain.

Dally and Haun are being held without bail in the grisly slaying of Sherri Dally, 35.

She was abducted May 6 from the parking lot of a Ventura department store, and her slashed and bludgeoned body was found June 1 in a ravine north of Ventura.
