    Watch out, guys! An Austrian femme fatale known as the “Ice Cream Killer” will have plenty of new men to choose from at her new lockdown. Estibaliz Carranza, 38, will be transferred to an all-male prison because she’s too dangerous to be locked up at a women’s facility, but authorities might be playing right into her hands. The maniacal murderess has a history of luring men into her web and then killing and slicing up their bodies with a chainsaw.

    Fox’s choice of conservative stalwart Tucker Carlson to replace trend-bucking news star Megyn Kelly is a telling pick — a rightward shift back to what the channel’s viewers are used to.

    Bristol County Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson is offering to ship his inmates off to the southern border to help President-elect Donald Trump build a massive wall. “We need to turn this country around and put law and order back in place,” Hodgson told the Herald last night. He’s proposing to send “eight to 10” inmates with a guard to help build a wall along the Mexican border. He said he has sent his pitch to Trump’s transition team. And, he added, he’s been told by other sheriffs across the country they are ready to join in.

Facing the New York Giants with a 4-2 lead and the National League championship at stake, he threw a high fastball in the ninth inning to the Giants’ Bobby Thomson, a dangerous hitter.

The girl, who was shot in the hand and leg and is expected to survive, was the second child among those victims, after a 9-year-old was injured last Sunday.
