    Ryan Stanush, 28, remains behind bars. He’s accused of beating his girlfriend so badly, she ended up in the hospital without a pulse and bleeding internally. "Mr. Stanush stated that the injuries occurred while they were having consensual rough sex,” says Lt. Jeff Shook from Converse Police Department... "We do see a lot of domestic violence during the holidays,” Lt. Shook says. Locally, the past few years we’ve seen deaths from domestic violence on a steady rise. Nationwide, the National Domestic Violence Hotline reports calls are up 40% this year. Extra counselors are manning the phones this holiday season, expecting...
  • The grim holiday tradition of counting Baltimore’s murder victims

    Yesterday, the Baltimore Police Department confirmed that another body dropped on the streets of Charm City had brought their 2018 murder total to 297. The unnamed victim was a known gang member, described by police as “a former Public Enemy No. 1” and had been acquitted of a firebombing over the summer. Given the city’s recent history, the odds of there not being at least three more killings over the next sixteen days are not encouraging, to put it mildly. If this plays out as expected, it will represent four years running where the death toll has exceeded 300, and...

    In a rare step, the California Supreme Court has blocked Gov. Jerry Brown’s attempt to issue a pardon to a 37-year-old Cambodian refugee who killed a woman when he was 14 years old. The court gave no reason for the rejection, but earlier noted it only had the authority to do so in the case of an “abuse of power.”Brown’s pardon would have effectively stopped Borey Ai’s deportation to Cambodia, a nation where his mother was born but he has never seen. The governor in the last 10 months has pardoned seven ex-convicts who otherwise faced the threat of deportation...

    An Irish lecturer was stabbed to death by a student outside the Paris university where he taught on Wednesday for allegedly insulting the prophet Mohammed by displaying a drawing of him during class.

The suspect, who is set to be indicted for murder on Friday, told the authorities that, while he killed Dowling to defend his faith against a perceived slight, he has also long maintained a...

  • Judge allows 2nd-degree murder charge in Noor case (Justine Damond Murder)

    A judge is allowing prosecutors to add a second-degree murder charge against Mohamed Noor, the Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed Justine Ruszczyk, according to court records. Judge Kathryn Quaintance signed an order allowing an amended complaint Friday. In the order, Quaintance stated, "the State argued that a sufficient basis exists for the additional charge." Last week, prosecutors argued that since Noor is already charged with third-degree murder, three of the four elements of a second-degree charge are satisfied. Their petition argued the shooting also satisfied the fourth element - that Noor intended to kill Ruszczyk. Noor and his...

    A long-time associate of a U.S.-based Islamist terrorist organization, Muslims of America (MOA), has been arrested in Johnson City, NY. Authorities discovered that he had a large cache of weapons inside a storage locker. A source inside MOA says the weapons were intended for the group’s “Islamberg” headquarters in Hancock, NY. The suspect, 64-year old Ramadan Abdullah, was previously arrested in 1977 when he and another man tried to rob a candy store in Brooklyn and someone was murdered in the process. When police searched his home, they found enough material to build 50 bombs. In the end, the charges...

    Prosecutors are seeking to add a second-degree murder charge against the Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed Justine Ruszczyk. A court filing states that since Mohamed Noor is already charged with third-degree murder, three of the four elements of a second-degree charge are satisfied. The filing argues the shooting also satisfies the fourth element - that Noor intended to kill Ruszczyk. "The circumstances surrounding the crime show that the defendant acted with the intent to kill," prosecutors wrote. "He fired at Ms. Ruszczyk from no more than six feet away. He fired with tragic accuracy, managing to send a...

    Gunmen ambushed a convoy carrying Honduras' top prosecutor, but neither he nor his bodyguards were harmed, police said Sunday. Police spokesman Orlin Cerrato said Attorney General Luis Alberto Rubi was riding on a northern highway when assailants opened fire Saturday night. Cerrato said no one was hurt. One car was damaged. He did not give a motive for the attack or say whether it was related to Honduras' four-month political crisis. But he speculated the attack could be an attempt to "provoke unease in the country." After the June coup, it was Rubi who filed criminal charges against ousted President...

    Is it any wonder that Lance Mason believed that he could get away with killing his wife? On the way back from a funeral, Judge Lance Mason beat his wife so badly that he broke her orbital socket.  A woman who called 911 had described a horrifying scene of “fists flying” inside the car. Their two children, ages 4 and 6, were in the SUV when their father assaulted their mother, choked her and bit her on the ear and the cheek. According to Aisha, Judge Mason "struck me in the face, yanked my hair, slammed my head into the...

    It began when a Central American migrant was interviewed on video, threatening to shoot Mexicans who are protesting against the caravan. It is unclear where this took place but most likely in Tijuana Mexico, near the POE with the United States. He threatened to shoot Mexicans that interfered, saying, “If they want violence, that is what they will see. What are 30 a$$holes going to do against 30k migrants?” he asked. He is heard about next in a video posted on social media after he is kidnapped and is being tortured

    GREELEY, Colo. (Reuters) - A Colorado man was sentenced to life without parole on Monday for strangling his pregnant wife, smothering their two young daughters and dumping their bodies in an oil field so he could pursue a romantic affair. Christopher Watts, 33, was spared the death penalty at the urging of family members of his wife, Shanann, 34, who was 15 weeks pregnant, and their daughters Celeste, 3, and Bella, 4. “This is perhaps the most inhumane and vicious crime I have handled,” Judge Marcelo Kopcow, who has 17 years on the bench, said in the packed and windowless...

It has invaded my lung tissue and requires me to wear an oxygen tank most of the day to breathe. I've had 18 surgeries. I plan to fight my illness for as long as I can. I enjoy life. But at the end stage of my disease, I do not want...
