    Joel Michael Guy Jr. drove up from his Baton Rouge, La., apartment last week to join his parents and three adult sisters for a last Thanksgiving dinner at the West Knox County home his parents had sold. Afterward the sisters returned to their homes in Maryville and Kingsport. Everything seemed fine during the family gathering at 11434 Goldenview Lane, authorities said. But sometime between Friday night and mid-day Saturday, the 28-year-old son attacked his parents with a knife, possibly tortured them and dismembered their bodies, leaving remains in various rooms of the 2,256-square-foot home, according to Knox County Sheriff's Office...

    Maryland jurors have convicted a 16-year-old girl of soliciting the slaying of her father who was stabbed to death outside the family's Hagerstown home on Halloween. The Washington County Circuit Court deliberated about 90 minutes Wednesday before finding Danielle Black guilty of solicitation of first-degree murder. She faces up to life in prison when she is sentenced. The 20-year-old man charged in the death of 47-year-old Billie Lee Black is not the same friend she spoke to on a school bus about killing her father. The girl contends she only wanted her father roughed up, not killed. She told police...

    HAGERSTOWN, Md. — Danielle Black wasn't shy about it: She told her peers she wanted her father hurt, maybe even dead. So when Billy Lee Black was fatally stabbed in the alley behind their rented duplex on Halloween, it didn't take police long to question his 15-year-old daughter, who told friends her father had physically abused her. Danielle, a smart but troubled sophomore at South Hagerstown High School, is charged as an adult with soliciting first-degree murder by asking a boy on her school bus to kill her father. A judge was to decide Thursday whether to refer her to...

    PHOENIX — A Mesa teenager says he fatally shot his father last month because he wouldn't let him use the Internet, police reports show. According to a Mesa police report released Wednesday, 15-year-old Hughstan Schlicker told a homicide detective that he considered committing suicide in front of his father after finding a 12-gauge shotgun and ammunition in the garage of their home, but decided to murder his father instead and then commit suicide. Hughstan apparently surprised 49-year-old Ted Schlicker, who was standing in the kitchen when the boy approached him from behind, the police report said.

    An off-duty Philadelphia police officer is dead, and his 13-year-old daughter is charged with his murder. Angry because her father disciplined her, Brittany Talington poured "some kind of liquid" over clothes and paper and set it aflame, causing the death of her father, Tyrone, Police Commissioner Sylvester Johnson said today. Witnesses said they saw the girl, who has been charged as an adult, running from her father's Loretto Avenue home in Oxford Circle early yesterday as flames engulfed the duplex. It was not clear whether anyone else lived there, police said. Johnson said he believed the 32-year-old 10-year veteran was...

    WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - A jury rejected an insanity defense and found prison inmate Joseph Druce guilty Wednesday of first-degree murder in the strangulation of pedophile priest John Geoghan, a central figure in Boston's clergy sex abuse scandal. Druce admitted sneaking into Geoghan's prison cell in August 2003. He jammed the door shut with a book, then beat and strangled the 68-year-old before guards could stop him. The defense had argued that Druce was mentally ill and under the delusion that God had chosen him to kill Geoghan and send a message to pedophiles around the world. Prosecutor Lawrence Murphy...

    FONTANA - Years of abuse suffered at the hands of her father failed to sway a judge Wednesday from sentencing Alma Frakes to 22 years in prison for the fatal shootings of her parents in their Bloomington home. When Frakes discovered her father had molested her teen-aged daughter, the 35-year-old woman snatched her boyfriend's .45-caliber Sig Sauer semi-automatic pistol and drove to the home of her parents Sept. 12, 2004, where she shot and killed them. The family was wrought with incest, deception, lying and manipulation, Frakes has said, and she and her five sisters all suffered molestation at the...

    RALEIGH -- If homeschooling families want to draw attention to their lifestyle and education methods when their children excel -- as in academic competitions -- they've got to accept that they will draw unwanted scrutiny when one of their own does something horrible. Such is the case with 18-year-old Pennsylvania murder suspect David Ludwig, who abducted his 14-year-old secret girlfriend Kara Borden Sunday after he allegedly gunned down her parents in their home. Ludwig was arrested in Indiana Monday with Borden in tow, after crashing his vehicle. Both were homeschooled and, according to some media reports, "deeply Christian." The nature...
