    EDMONTON — Alberta mom Allyson McConnell will be deported back to her native Australia on Monday despite pending appeals by Alberta Justice for her to face murder charges in the 2010 drowning deaths of her two young boys. The 34-year-old Millet mom is being returned home after completing a 10-month sentence at the Alberta Hospital Thursday for the manslaughter of her 10-month-old son Jayden and two-year-old son Connor. ...During the hearing, defence lawyer Peter Royal didn’t argue the custody ruling as McConnell is mere days away from leaving Canada. “She’s been fully co-operative and compliant throughout and that remains the...

    The Virginia House and Senate voted Wednesday to ban abortion coverage in insurance plans sold through the health care exchange that will be set up in compliance with the Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare." The amendment was proposed by the state's governor, Bob McDonnell. Senate Democrats were hoping to block the measure, but failed when two Democrats joined Republicans to move the amendment forward, according to NBC Washington. The state had already passed a similar amendment in 2011 but a new amendment was necessary because Virginia opted to let the federal government set up the exchange rather than set up...

    The man suspected of killing Colorado's prisons chief was still supposed to be behind bars. But because of a clerical error, Evan Ebel was let out of prison in January -- four years early. Authorities suspect he went on to kill Tom Clements, who led the state's prison system, last month. They have also said there is a "strong connection" between that killing and the murder of Nathan Leon, a pizza delivery driver who was found dead in suburban Golden, Colorado.

    Being one of the living dead would be a big advantage if you're charged with murder. And you could probably trash your neighbor's property and not be successfully sued. Ryan Davidson, a lawyer who also blogs about "superheroes, supervillains, and the law" at Law and the Multiverse, tells The Huffington Post that "if zombies are effectively unconscious, then they would be incapable of performing voluntary actions and thus immune to criminal liability (or civil liability, for that matter)." He'll be discussing that conclusion and "various legal aspects of being a zombie" on Friday at the WonderCon convention in Anaheim, Calif....

A piece of the same material around his throat was tied on to the shower rail above him, indicating he apparently hanged from the rail. But police told a coroner they still cannot rule out murder. Det Insp Mark Bissell said: “The results of the postmortem found that the cause of death was consistent with hanging. "The pathologist has found nothing to indicate a sign of struggle or third party involvement.” He added...

    Brasilia, Mar 28, 2013, Reuters: A Brazilian doctor who was charged with killing seven patients to free up beds at a hospital intensive care unit may have been responsible for as many as 300 deaths, according to a Health Ministry investigator. Prosecutors said Dr Virginia Soares de Souza and her medical team administered muscle relaxing drugs to patients, then reduced their oxygen supply, causing them to die of asphyxia at the Evangelical Hospital in the southern city of Curitiba. De Souza, a 56-year-old widow, was arrested last month and charged with seven counts of aggravated first degree murder.

    The Philadelphia media is one of the most race-adverse media outlets in the country. They do anything and everything to hide the facts of race-based assaults and killings. Such is the case in Upper Darby PA where a 12-year-old white boy, Bailey O’Neill, was jumped and beaten in school by two black kids. Baily was rushed to the hospital, spent 2 months on life-support, and died this week. The kids who killed him? They were suspended from school for two days. Jesse Jackson would be proud. Maybe - because of quotas for black discipline - they are waiting for two...

    A teenage boy who had been shot by his grandmother pleaded with a 911 dispatcher to send help as the 75-year-old shot him again, a prosecutor told jurors on Tuesday. Sandra Layne is on trial for the first-degree murder of her grandson Jonathan Hoffman, 17, whom she is accused of shooting dead on May 18 last year at their shared home in suburban Detroit. Hoffman 'thought he was safe... Sandra Layne walks up and shoots him again. This time in the stomach,' Paul Walton, Oakland County's chief assistant prosecutor, said during his opening statement today. Defense attorney Jerome Sabbota countered...
  • Holder: Obama could order lethal force in U.S.

    However, Holder says that in situations akin to the 1941 assault on Pearl Harbor or the September 11, 2001 attacks, the president might have to order the use of deadly force in the U.S. "The question you have posed is entirely hypothetical, unlikely to occur, and one we hope no President will ever have to confront," Holder wrote. "It is possible, I supposed, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the President to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory...

    While American patriots watch in drop-jawed horror at the criminal actions, endless lies, and gut-wrenching anti-Americanism of this current administration under Barack Obama (or whatever his name is), there is a man sitting in jail not getting a speedy trial, because he is being protected by Obama’s military. Not only is he not getting a speedy trial, but his case is grossly misclassified. I am talking about the enemy combatant Muslim, Nidal Hasan, who infiltrated the United States Army and waged a beastly jihad attack on unarmed soldiers and civilians at Fort Hood,Texas back in 2009, killing thirteen adults, a...

    An elderly man from the Gresham neighborhood who’s already facing attempted murder charges is now accused of harassing his alleged victim and trying to persuade her to drop the case against him. Walter Wilson, 80, of the 8700 block of South Bishop, was arrested Saturday and charged with violating an order of protection, unlawful communication and harassing a witness. On Sunday, Cook County Jude Israel Desierto ordered him held in lieu of $250,000 bail. Police said Wilson called his alleged victim’s cellphone more than 25 times and left her messages. They also said Wilson talked to the woman and told...

    An 18-year-old woman with a necrophilia fetish had three-way sex on the corpses of two men who she and her sexual partners strangled, it was claimed today. Joshua Miner, 24, piled the bodies of Eric Glover and Terrence Rankins, both 22, together and placed a beige sheet across them so he and his longtime girlfriend, Alisa Massaro, could lie together on top of them at Massaro's home in Joliet, Illinois, according to police reports. Adam Landerman, the 19-year-old son of a police sergeant, may have joined Massaro and Miner's sexual romp, as well, the report says. After killing the men,...

    Nightmare on Hickory Street, Part 1: After the savage strangling of two young men, two of the accused killers decided to have sex atop the corpses of the victims, police learned. Joshua Miner remembered his teenage girlfriend confiding “years back that she wanted to have sex with a dead guy,” states a police report documenting last month’s double murder on Hickory Street. That's why Miner got the idea to ask girlfriend Alisa Massaro to have sex with him on the corpses of two men he's accused of helping to kill, police said. Massaro “made a smirk on her face” and...

    Last week, the judge who granted bail to Oscar Pistorius was in the international spotlight, presiding over dramatic hearings in a courtroom as the Olympic athlete sat in the dock charged with murdering his girlfriend. This week, the judge is in private mourning. Desmond Nair, chief magistrate of the Pretoria Magistrate's Court, confirmed Tuesday that he is related to a woman suspected of killing her two children and committing suicide on the weekend. The revelation was the latest twist in the saga of Pistorius and prominent figures linked to the case against the double-amputee athlete, who faces a charge of...

    BANNED steroid drugs were found in Oscar Pistorius’s house after he shot dead lover Reeva Steenkamp. Police also discovered a blood-stained cricket bat in the Blade Runner’s mansion in Pretoria, South Africa — and evidence of heavy drinking before the 3am shooting. Cops are now probing a theory that Pistorius may have blasted Reeva in an explosion of fury caused by the performance-boosting steroids. They are investigating whether murder suspect Pistorius was in the grip of “roid rage” — a side-effect of high doses of the outlawed drugs. Officers who searched the 26-year-old’s home after lover Reeva was killed in...
