The Arcata City Council was met with a full house this Wednesday as Humboldt State Students, Arcata residents and Charmaine Lawson, mother of David Josiah Lawson who was killed at a party in April, filled the council chambers asking for more answers to a case that has lasted close to five months.  Charmaine Lawson was accompanied by friends and family as she presented a petition with a thousand signatures from students and community members from Humboldt County and Lawson’s hometown in Southern California’s Inland Empire.
