    JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Circuit Judge Joseph Loper dropped the charges against Curtis Flowers on Friday. The indictment was dismissed with prejudice after Flowers was tried for murder six times. The order, signed by Attorney General Lynn Fitch, states, “it is in the interest of justice that the State will not seek an unprecedented seventh trial of Mr. Flowers.” Flowers was charged with murder in the deaths of four people at Tardy Furniture in Winona, Mississippi, in July of 1996. Carmen Rigby, Robert Golden, Bobo Stewart and Bertha Tardy were all killed

    The U.S. on Wednesday announced it blacklisted Chinese officials and business executives involved in the military buildup of the disputed South China Sea, further ratcheting up tensions in the region ahead of the November election -- the same day that Beijing reportedly fired missiles including an "aircraft-carrier killer" into the sea as a "warning" to the U.S. China had claimed a U-2 spy plane entered a no-fly zone without permission during a naval drill in the Bohai Sea, a military source told the South China Morning Post. The Pentagon has given few details, but said a U-2 flew "within the...

    Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said all school districts in the state can open and have students, teachers and staff return based on the low infection rates recorded in every region, but the state leaves the specifics of how to return to classes or whether or when to do so in-person to the school districts themselves. The governor said the school districts have much work to do to inform their communities, answering the concerns of parents and teachers of the specifics of their reopening plans. Cuomo said he expects districts to post those specifics for public review "by the end of...

    Over two decades have passed since Terebea Williams shot and left 23-year-old Kevin "John" Ruska Jr. for dead. Williams, now 44, was sentenced to 84 years-to-life in prison after she was convicted in 2001 of first-degree murder, use of a firearm, carjacking and kidnapping. Last month, California Gov. Gavin Newsom pledged to release 8,000 inmates by Aug. 1 to protect them from a coronavirus outbreak behind bars. "Just want folks to know, advocates for urgency to know, your voices are being heard," Newsom said on June 29. "For family members with loved ones in those facilities to know your voices...

    In a 5-4 vote Thursday, the state Supreme Court of Washington rejected a lawsuit calling for the release of thousands of inmates to help stem the spread of the coronavirus, according to reports. Those narrowly missing a shot at freedom included Gary Ridgway, the so-called “Green River Killer,” who in 2003 was sentenced to life in prison after confessing to killing as many as 49 women in the 1980s, Seattle’s KIRO radio reported. A lawyer representing the inmates being considered for release – about two-thirds of the state’s prison population, according to KIRO – argued that those behind bars aren’t...

    Authorities searching the California home of a UPS worker who threatened a mass shooting found body armor, tactical rifles and 20,000 rounds of ammunition, police said Monday.

Authorities said they received a report Sunday night that Andrews was planning a mass shooting at the UPS facility in the city of Sunnyvale, near San Jose.

Her daughter, Heaven, was calling 911 for help when the dog named Amigo pounced on the woman, who had a history of seizures. “I don’t think he was trying to attack her,” her daughter told WJAR. “I think the dog was just trying to help my mom but he’s just a dog and he didn’t know...

    A parolee charged with killing a University of Illinois at Chicago honor student spotted her as she walked alone past a CTA Blue Line stop on campus early Saturday morning and grew angered when she ignored his repeated attempts to talk, Cook County prosecutors alleged Tuesday. As Ruth George reached her car in a UIC parking garage, prosecutors said, Donald Thurman grabbed her around the neck from behind and put her in a chokehold. With his arm still wrapped around her neck, Thurman dragged an unconscious George to her car and threw her in the back seat, where he sexually...

    When you think of serial killers, names like Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy and even Houston's own "Candyman," Dean Corll, probably pop to mind. But the FBI says Samuel Little is the worst of the worst, having confessed to 93 murders, and even sketching many of his victims from memory to help police identify them.

    Mickaël Harpon had contact with members of the Salafist movement. He had exchanged text messages of a religious nature with his wife before the attack, the prosecutor added. He also defended the 2015 terrorist attack on the magazine Charlie Hebdo and other atrocities, Mr Ricard said. Anti-terror investigators took over the inquiry on Friday. It was initially regarded as a criminal matter. The 45-year-old IT expert, who worked at the police headquarters, was shot dead on Thursday by a junior police officer after he attacked colleagues in several offices at the central police building.

    A “documented gang member,” who police said "should have been in prison," was responsible for a two-hour stabbing and robbery rampage in Southern California that killed four people and injured two, authorities said Thursday. Garden Grove Police Chief Tom DaRé told reporters that Zachary Castaneda "could have injured or killed many other people" had he not been apprehended as he walked out of a convenience store in the neighboring city of Santa Ana, dropping a knife and a gun he had taken from a security guard he had just killed. Police told reporters the violence appeared to be “random," with...

Chemirmir was already in prison from charges he faces from 2018 involving another alleged murder of an elderly woman. The story garnered national attention and was widely reported on...

    Every year, Earth passes through the tail of the comet Encke - twice. This isn’t unusual. We regularly cross cometary trails of ice and dust. But this one may be different. It could have been the source of the dramatic 1908 Tunguska airburst which flattened hundreds of square kilometres of Russian forest. The 45m wide comet fragment struck on June 30, at the height of the Beta Taurid shower. Was it, in fact, a part of that shower? Astronomer and science advocate Dr Phil Plait says it is possible. Calculations of its trajectory indicate the Tunguska object came from the...

    The gunman who shot and killed Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona Thursday night has been identified as Kevin Douglas Limbaugh, a 48-year-old man who was ordered last fall to surrender a semiautomatic rifle after he was convicted in a battery case. Yolo County Superior Court records show Limbaugh was charged in September with battery with serious bodily injury, a incident that a source said stemmed from him punching a co-worker at Cache Creek Casino in the face after a dispute. The case was resolved as a misdemeanor conviction, and California Department of Justice records show he agreed to surrender a...
