Pair Accused of Hate Crimes to Stand Trial

From Times Staff Writers

A judge ordered two white men Monday to stand trial on charges they stalked and made death threats against an African American businessman from Canyon Country.

David Wayne Haisten, 19, and Kevin Michael Conroy, 21, each face four felony counts and a maximum of nine years in state prison if convicted, prosectors said. They are being held in lieu of $380,000 bail.

Authorities said they arrested Haisten and Conroy after the pair followed the victim home from work between April 24 and June 11, threatened his life and targeted him with racial epithets.
