Four killed, two others wounded during 12-hour wave of violence in Newark >NEWARK - Four people were killed and two others were injured in a series of attacks that occurred over a 12-hour period Tuesday and today in the state's largest city, officials said. >The deaths mark the latest wave of violence in Newark, which has seen its homicide total jump to 82 so far this year and could surpass 100 for the first time since 2007. >The four people killed in the latest wave of violence were targeted, according to Police Director Samuel DeMaio, who described the slayings as "pre-meditated, calculated, murders." >The bloodshed began around 3:45 p.m. Tuesday, when 54-year-old Ruby Green and her 64-year-old boyfriend were found dead inside their South 11th Street home, Essex County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Thomas Fennelly said. >Green was stabbed multiple times, while her boyfriend was beaten around the head and face, according to law enforcement sources who spoke to The Star-Ledger on Tuesday. The boyfriend, whose identity has been withheld until prosecutors can locate his family, was pronounced dead at the scene, Fennelly said. Green died at University Hospital in Newark. >Green was a lifelong member of the Providence Missionary Baptist Church and is survived by a daughter and granddaughter, said the Rev. J. Vincent Grove, pastor of the church. She will be mourned during a memorial service there this evening. >Around 8 p.m. Tuesday, Dana Andre Pridgen, 38, of East Orange, was gunned down on West End Avenue, less than two miles from where Green and her boyfriend were killed, Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray said. >DeMaio said Pridgen, who was released from prison less than three months ago, was shot by multiple assailants while sitting inside a parked car. Nearly 30 rounds were fired during the attack, according to DeMaio, who said Pridgen was trying to reclaim his former drug territory in the weeks before the shooting. >"It appears that when he got back from jail he tried to get right back into the game," DeMaio said. >Three hours later, Jahid Jordan, 22, of Irvington, was shot and killed on South Orange Avenue, Murray said. DeMaio said a drug dispute was also likely the motive behind Jordan's killing. >The violence culminated 3 a.m. today when two people were shot in an attack near the intersection of East Peddie Street and Elizabeth Avenue, DeMaio said. Both victims are expected to survive, but investigators have not determined a motive or suspect in the event. >The killings of Pridgen and Jordan were not linked to the couple's death, and police have made no arrests, DeMaio said. The spasm in violence follows a three-day span that left five people dead last week, and a series of slaying that left ten people dead in ten days in late August and early September. >There have been 82 homicides so far this year, up from 72 at this point last year, DeMaio said. With overall crime down by 7 percent and non-fatal shootings down 16 percent in 2013, DeMaio said the surge in homicides is not indicative of a citywide increase in violence. >"When someone has the drive and the motive to per-meditate, calculate, stalk and kill someone, it's a difficult thing to stop," DeMaio said. "What we're seeing is more of these types of shootings that are out and out assassinations then we've seen in previous years." >During a press conference held on Wednesday morning to announce his public safety plan, mayoral candidate and former assistant attorney general Shavar Jeffries said city residents would not have to live in fear if Newark's leaders were committed to combating the violence. >"We don't have to read article after article as we did waking this up this morning of three more Newarkers murdered," he told a crowd at the Philemon Missionary Baptist Church. "We don't have to live like this but we'll continue to live like this if we don't have leaders who know what they're doing."

>>3060271 Holy shit, that's very near where I live. I can tell you that this is one of the most heavily policed (and with heavily militarized police) parts of the nation. The article names no less than 6 police agencies working on the manhunt, and I can name another two or three that could get involved without even trying. Also, the article has an update. >Stephon Prather, the man who shot a Howard County police officer Wednesday afternoon is still on the run seven hours later.
>>3060271 >>3060408 another update: http://www.wjla.com/articles/2013/10/officer-shot-in-howard-county-95829.html >LAUREL, Md.

He was then taken to a local shock trauma center to be treated for a gunshot wound to the leg. >It's not immediately clear how Prather sustained the gunshot wound, though authorities say he exchanged gunfire with Houk during the incident.
So it seems the pigs cornered this fucker and shot him out of vengeance. I told you the cops around here don't fuck around.

He was sentenced to 20 years total, 10 years of which was suspended. He was serving two 5-year sentences concurrently, and got about 3 years through that when he went into a drug treatment program. >He ended up on probation from December 2007 to December 2012. >Law enforcement expert Ed Clark is helping us connect the dots. >"If he does it with family members, this individual could more than likely do it out there, and we saw what happened with our Howard County police officer yesterday," said Clark. >In researching Prather's past, Assignment Desk Editor Bill Starks noticed our sister station WFMY in North Carolina had a story on Prather. WFMY reported that Prather was arrested in 2011 in North Carolina. Police tried to pull him over, he crashed his car, got out and ran. Later, police found him in a home, and he was charged with breaking and entering among other charges. >But, remember Prather was on probation in 2011. >Clark explains, "He's involved in the state of North Carolina and has serious felony charges for whatever reason there was a breakdown where they did not notify the Maryland Department of Parole and probation officers." >If they did, would Prather have been serving that 10 year suspended sentence? And does that mean that Prather would have been in prison on Wednesday rather than putting police in his crosshairs? Clark responds, "Had they done that in a timely manner, the state may have been able to file a violation of probation warrant and have this individual arrested and brought before the criminal justice system." >Our last stop on our quest for answers tonight took us to an Upper Marlboro home where police say Stephon Prather lived back in 2006. No one answered the door. >Officer Steven Houk is out of surgery tonight, Howard County Police say he is in serious but stable condition and doing well.

He was assigned to the group home, run by Consumer Support Services, by Franklin County Children Services last year. >According to a search warrant filed in Franklin County Municipal Court, Juergens' body was found by township police officers after Willy Mutai, a staff member at the group home, called police shortly after 6 p.m. Sunday, to say Stewart was acting suspiciously. >Mutai said he had taken Stewart and another resident to the park late Sunday afternoon.

He has been in the care of the agency off and on since 2010. >Juvenile Court records show that Stewart lived with his maternal grandmother but that she was unable to control his behavior.

She left this year to start her own consulting company, of which AMP was a client, said Kent Carson, spokesman for the company. >She was a member of Women on Fire, a national coaching and support organization for women. >Debbie Phillips, founder of Women on Fire, said Juergens had been one of the early members of the group.

The Colony police release sketch of woman's alleged assailant
>THE COLONY - Melissia Conzett knew this day would come; the day the sketch of her kidnapper would be released to the public. >"I keep saying, 'I'm OK… I'm OK… I'm OK.' I'm not," she said. >The Colony woman waits tables at a friend's restaurant and cracks a smile every now and then. It's the one place where she feels somewhat safe. >"I just wish it was over. I wish it hadn't happened," Conzett said. >She said she was kidnapped in the parking lot of her apartment at the Budget Suites in The Colony last week. She said a black male asked her for a cigarette, and then pointed a gun at her and forced her into her own car. >With a gun pointed at her, Conzett said she drove for nearly 45 minutes with the kidnapper in the passenger seat. >Conzett even shared video with News 8 as she retraced her steps with investigators. In the video, she pointed to a green patch where she said she was nearly raped.

It is a service that is contracted out, like so many small and medium-size police departments in Texas. >"Generally we don't do sketch artists until leads have ran dry, because we're hoping to get forensic evidence and other video evidence," explained Lt. Darren Brockway. >He said getting any video surveillance in this case was a remote possibility, and most of the evidence had likely been washed away by rain. >Brockway said the sketch of Conzett's assailant was done by an artist at the Denton County Sheriff's Department. The Colony police hasn't put out a sketch in 10 years. >Conzett and a friend are now hoping to appeal to lawmakers to ensure there is proper funding for sketch artists at all police departments, big and small. >If you have any information or recognize someone matching the description in the sketch, call The Colony police at 972-625-1887.
Recruiter accused of shooting commanding officers at National Guard Armory
>MILLINGTON, TN - (WMC-TV) - A Tennessee National Guard employee remains in custody after reportedly shooting his commanding officers at the National Guard Armory in Millington Thursday. >FBI officials searched the Cordova home of the suspected National Guard Armory shooter later in the evening. Neighbors say the home belongs to Sergeant First Class Amos Patton. >Patton served as a recruiter for the Army National Guard for 14 years. Before the shooting, Patton's bosses had come to town to talk with him about administrative policies and procedures and to relieve him from duty because of "misconduct." >According to the FBI, Patton went to his car in the midst of his meeting and retrieved government-issued gear to return it. When he came back to the meeting he had a fanny pack, which he previously did not have. >An Action News 5 reliable source says he took a semi-automatic 380 pistol out. The guardsmen shouted "gun." Our source says Patton emptied his weapon and fired seven to 10 shots at his commanding officers. The officers jumped on Patton and wrestled him while managing to keep the gun down. >The gun fired at Maj. Jeff Crawford striking him in the thigh; he has an entrance and exit wound. A bullet hit Sgt. Maj. Ricky R. McKenzie in the foot. Lt. Col Hunter was grazed by a bullet right below the knee, according to the National Guard. All victims were sent to the Regional Medical Center (The MED) to be treated for their injuries, but they have since been released. >Patton was "taken down" by a fellow guardsman after he emptied his weapon and attempted to run. >"I want to send out my sincere concern to the families of the two soldiers, guardsmen, that we had injured," said Major General Max Haston, Tennessee National Guard. "We hope that the two victims will soon be recovered and soon be back to work." >Major General Haston added that the two people who were shot were seasoned recruiters, headquartered out of Jackson, Tennessee. >According to Haston, one of the victims served in Iraq in 2005. He believes the other may have served in Afghanistan. >"I know both of the individuals who was injured, I know that the Major and I were in Iraq together in 2005," he explained. >Maj. Gen. Haston said that everyone on the scene at the time of the shooting responded according to protocol. The shooting happened at the National Guard Armory, which is the non-secured part of the base but is still on navy property. >"I'm sure there could have been more injury if they hadn't taken him in custody or gotten him restrained," said Millington police chief Stanback. >Police responded in a matter of seconds after a call was received around 12:45 p.m. >"The community here responded outstanding," he said. "It amazed me. They told me the timeliness of the response. The citizens in the community here should be very proud of that." >Despite the response, Haston admitted that it scares him to death that something like this can happen. >"It concerns me today what's happened all over the world, Washington D.C., that Washington Naval Yard, you never think something like this will happen on your watch, in good ol' Tennessee here," he said. "But it did happen." >Officials temporarily enforced a lockdown at the Millington Navy base as well as Millington Elementary and a golf course, which are both nearby the Naval Support Activity Mid-South installation. >Police say Patton did not speak and seemed to be in a daze while he was transported to the Millington jail, where he was questioned by the FBI. >Neighbors in Patton's Cordova community say they are shocked. >"He was very nice. Introduced himself. Asked if we ever needed anything. Came over. Wife the same thing," said a neighbor who did not want to be identified.

Man receives life sentence for home-invasion rape of UGA grad in west Athens >A 20-year-old man on Friday was sentenced to life plus 70 years in prison for a home-invasion rape last year at a Westside Athens apartment complex. >Allen Hendric Robinson was sentenced soon after a Clarke County jury returned guilty verdicts on charges of rape, burglary, false imprisonment, armed robbery, aggravated assault and sexual battery. >Jurors began deliberating Thursday afternoon after sitting through three days of testimony. >Among those who testified were the victim, who at the time of the July 2012 assault had recently graduated from the University of Georgia and was preparing to move back to her home town when Robinson attacked her at the Abbey West community off Epps Bridge Parkway. >"She did an exceptional job," the prosecutor, Western Judicial Circuit Assistant District Attorney Rebecca Fogal, said of the victim's testimony. "It was an incredible and gut-wrenching thing for her to do." >Fogal said the sentence handed down by Superior Court Judge H. Patrick Haggard was appropriate. >"Obviously this case was horrendous because it involved a high level of violence that included a home invasion, a rape, the use of a firearm, and (Robinson) said some very horrific things" during the assault, Fogal said. "On top of that, there was a very disturbing level of planning." >During the trial, another woman testified that Robinson had approached her at Abbey West one week prior to the rape and asked if he could use her cellphone because his was dead, than asked to use an outlet in her apartment to recharge his phone. >He locked the door behind him and turned up the volume of a television set before the woman was possibly saved from an assault when her roommate returned home. >Prior to that incident and before the rape, Robinson had been lurking in an apartment building's stairwell. >That woman reported her encounter with Robinson to police after he saw his photograph in the Athens Banner-Herald for the home-invasion rape. >On the afternoon of July 23, 2012, Robinson talked his way into the rape victim's home by first asking to use her cellphone because his was not working, then requested a glass of water. Authorities said Robinson approached the victim while she loaded belongings into her car for the move back home. As the victim was returning with a glass of water, Robinson was standing outside her doorway, authorities said. He then put a pellet gun resembling an actual firearm to the victim's head, forced her back inside, locked the door and raped her. >"The parallels between the two incidents were just incredibly disturbing," Fogal said. "During sentencing, I said I just found it very chilling." >The victim's roommate was home during the assault, and called police to report a burglary in progress because she heard noises. While locked in her room and on the phone with a 911 dispatcher, she heard her roommate begging Robinson not to hurt her. >When officers arrived, they saw Robinson jump from the second-floor apartment and run into some woods, but they gave chase and arrested him inside a home at a nearby subdivision. >He ran into the house through an unlocked door and struggled with an officer who pepper sprayed Robinson on a back patio. >When searching Robinson, officers found a cellphone and cash that he'd stolen from the victim. >"What he did to (the victim) was simply heinous," Fogal said. "She was trying to help a stranger, going out of her way to give him a glass of water on a hot day, and look what happened to her in exchange."

I have to search my God to help me have strength to not hate you and to not wish that you would die and just go straight to hell." >Two of Robert Marchand's long-estranged seven natural children told of his good works later in life to help the needy after bad choices earlier in life and how his death took away any chance of their reconnecting with an older, wiser father that they were proud to learn about in death. >Lorna Marchand Weber, 56, of Houston, recalled how Marchand's bishop told her during the funeral that Marchand was being counseled to reconnect with his children and was hopeful he had been close to doing that. >"The greatest personal impact to me is that by murdering Irwin, Shirley and Doug, you have permanently removed the opportunity for reconciliation and a renewed relationship between Irwin and me, as well as with all of his children," said Weber, Robert Marchand's oldest child. >Aikens would have faced the death penalty if found guilty at trial and if he could not convince the court to rule on his claim he is mentally retarded and not eligible for the death penalty. >Turner had the option Tuesday to decide whether to order the mandatory life sentences to run concurrently or consecutively under the plea deal. >In a motion filed Monday, Aikens' attorneys argued their client's three life sentences should be concurrent because the murders arose out of the same plan. >Turner did not buy the argument. >"Three lives were taken as result of Mr. Aikens action, and the court cannot ignore that fact. To run these sentences concurrent would be an insult for taking the lives of these individuals," Turner said. >After the hearing, District Attorney Ricky Babin said he was pleased with the ruling. >"You can't serve but one, but it's a huge victory as far as the judge recognized that fact that three people lost their lives, and not one, so it was sentenced accordingly," Babin said. >During the hearing, Aikens, wearing an orange prison jumpsuit and bound with shackles on his hand and legs, read a brief statement. >"I am truly sorry for what everyone is going through in this courtroom. Everyone has taken a loss, the Marchands, the Dooleys and also my family," Aikens said, appearing to choke up. >Aikens' attorneys declined to comment Tuesday after the hearing but told Turner they were planning an appeal. >As for the remaining four defendants, O'Bannon, the assistant district attorney, said prosecutors plan to bring Bernard James, 26, 36344 Lorena Drive, Prairieville, to trial on April 22 on three counts of first-degree murder. >Trial dates have not yet been set for Travis Moore, 21, 4950 Wilot St., Baton Rouge; Devon James, 25, 40140 S. Autumnwood, Prairieville, and Rolando Durrell Stewart, 23, 15379 Roy Rogers Road, Prairieville, all charged on three counts of first-degree murder.

Widow of paramedic killed in Oakland speaks, teen on trial for murder >OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) - Liz Boyer is holding out hope that her late husband's dream of a better Oakland will be the ultimate result after his murder. >She was in court today when a judge ruled a 16 year-old boy will stand trial for killing her husband, off-duty paramedic Quinn Boyer. Boyer was shot to death in Oakland last April. >A police sergeant testified Christian Burton confessed to firing the shot that killed Boyer. Burton's attorney says his client's confession was coerced. >Boyer's widow said this is a case where everybody loses. >"It's just, it's travesty all around. There's no, I don't see where it's going to have a happy ending," she said. >Liz Boyer said she didn't come to court to seek retribution, but rather answers as to why her 34 year-old husband became a random victim on an Oakland Hills street. >"I'm more concerned with how it came to pass in the first place, as opposed to really pinning or focusing on a punitive solution, because for us there's no satisfaction. We don't get Quinn back," said Boyer. >Boyer and a large group of family, friends and her late husband's fellow paramedics appeared for a preliminary hearing for Burton. >Burton is accused of firing a single shot that hit Boyer in the head. Burton's family and his attorney claim the boy is innocent. >"There's an independent witness who basically told police that the shooter had a white baseball cap and the witness does not describe my client as the shooter who had a jean jacket on," said Burton's attorney Ernie Castillo. >But prosecutors argue Burton was one of six young teens on a crime spree that began with a carjacking at a High Street market, a crime partially caught on video surveillance. >Later, prosecutors say the same group, in the stolen car approached Boyer as he sat on the side of Keller Avenue and that the teens intended to steal his car and iPhone. >"The best possible thing that could come from this whole situation would be for people to remember Quinn. The things that he believed in, one of which was he loved this city and he wanted to see it reach its potential," said Liz Boyer. >A judge ordered Burton held for trial as an adult. If convicted, he could face the death penalty.

Texarkana man gets new trial in 1997 double murder >ASHDOWN, AR (KSLA) - A Texarkana man on death row for killing an Ashdown couple 16 years ago is getting a new trial. >Timothy Howard was convicted in 1999 of shooting Brian Day to death and leaving his body inside a padlocked U-Haul truck in Ogden. His wife Shannon was later found strangled to death in their Ashdown home. >Howard lived across the street from the couple, who had an infant son and a 5-year-old daughter at the time. The 7-month-old boy was also found in the home, stuffed inside a duffel bag with an extension cord wrapped around his throat. He survived. For that, Howard was charged with attempted murder. The little girl was not at home at the time of the attack. >Among the evidence used at trial, fingerprints matching Howard's lifted from the U-Haul truck, and a pair of boots belonging to Howard with Brian Day's blood on them. >Howard, now 44, appealed his conviction, there were too many questions about the evidence and how it was handled at the time of the trial. >On Tuesday afternoon, Little River County Circuit Judge Charles Yeargan granted Howard a new trial, citing several problems with the DNA. >Among the concerns, the fact that the lid popped off one of the hair samples during testing. The incident did not come to light until after the trial. While there was enough of the sample remaining to finish testing and a total of 3 samples returned results matching Howard, Judge Yeargan concluded that he could not be sure that a jury would not have decided differently. >A conviction on a capital murder charge with the death penalty at stake requires a unanimous jury. >Leaving court Howard told KSLA News 12's Fred Gamble that "It's a blessing, a combination of a lot of good people doing a lot of hard work." >Prosecuting Attorney Bryan Chesshir was not in office when Howard went to trial in 1999. While he says he respect's the judge's ruling, his concern lies with the family of Brian and Shannon Day. "It is sad for the family. You know, after 17 years, after all the appeals, you would think they Would get some closure but we start from day one again." >Howard will be transferred from the custody of the state prison system into the custody of Little River County to await trial. A new court date has not yet been set. >Arkansas doesn't have any pending executions. The state last executed an inmate in 2005.

He lifted his shirt to show the entrance and exit wounds. >"It came in right here right below my lowest rib and exited about a half inch above my belly button." >The robbers are described as African-American males. >Police describe the shooter as: >*18 to 20 years old >*5'5" >*Wearing a leather Red Sox jacket and blue jeans >The accomplice's description: >*16 to 18 years old >*5'10" >*Wearing a black vest with orange sleeves, dark jeans and a black hoodie >UC police interim chief Jeff Corcoran said there's been a decrease in the number of armed robberies near campus this year. >"What we've done this fall semester is in conjunction with Cincinnati, we're both putting a lot of extra officers out in the neighborhood around the campus," Corcoran said. >Corcoran advises people who are being robbed to give up their property so they're not harmed. He's also warning students and others to avoid walking on the streets late at night. >UC offers a free shuttle service called Night Ride. Students can arrange a ride by called 513.556.RIDE. >Lampe said police arrived quickly to the scene but the teens got away. >He's hoping the teens won't be on the loose for long. >"It's a shame that people can't walk five minutes down the street without being robbed or even worse, assaulted. So, I think these kids deserve whatever they have coming," Lampe said. >Anyone with information about the robbery can call Crime Stoppers at 352-3040.

Minister gets 2 years for setting fire in phony Chesterfield hate crime
>A Baptist minister was sentenced today to serve two years in prison for setting his front porch ablaze in a phony Chesterfield County hate crime attack that included racist graffiti he painted to deceive police. >Olander D. Cuthrell, 42, a minister of music at Gospel Shepherd Baptist Church, told the judge he was ashamed and embarrassed for pouring a mixture of oil and gasoline across part of his family's front porch and igniting it March 15 after becoming overwhelmed by financial problems. >Minutes before the fire, he spray-painted the N-word on two sides of his rental house in the 7800 block of Little Ridge Court to divert attention from himself and bolster his claim of being the target of a racially motivated attack. >He further perpetuated the fraud by igniting a 16-ounce bottle filled with oil and gas inside an inoperable, family-owned 1992 BMW parked outside the house. >After Cuthrell set the two fires, Chesterfield County prosecutor Laura Khawaja said in arguing for a stiff punishment, he went back inside the house, undressed and climbed into bed, "waiting for the house to burn down." >Fortunately, his oldest son discovered the porch fire after the family dog woke him, and was able to extinguish the flames with water before it spread to the house occupied by Cuthrell and four other family members. The car fire burned out on its own. >The incident prompted Chesterfield police and the FBI to investigate the matter as a possible hate crime, and Cuthrell fueled that notion by telling several news outlets he was the victim of a racially motivated attack. >Investigators quickly became suspicious and Cuthrell became the focus of their investigation within 10 days. He was arrested April 2. Cuthrell eventually admitted to setting the fires, telling investigators he was motivated by family financial problems. >Khawaja said there was a pattern to Cuthrell's deceit. She noted how 12 years ago in North Carolina he falsely claimed to police he had been robbed in an attempt to cover up his theft from an employer. He was convicted of filing a false police report. >Because Cuthrell set an arson fire to an occupied dwelling, his offense was elevated in terms of the law and his punishment. Judge T.J. Hauler of Chesterfield Circuit Court sentenced Cuthrell to 10 years with eight years suspended. State sentencing guidelines called for a punishment of between 11 months and two years, seven months. >Cuthrell will also have to pay restitution for the damage he caused to the rental home, but the precise amount has not yet been calculated. >In their investigation, police learned that Cuthrell was three months behind on his rent, or $4,500, and a recent check he wrote to his landlord for two months' back payment bounced. Cuthrell was told his family faced eviction if he didn't immediately pay his full debt. >Cuthrell also told authorities he was under stress related to legal troubles involving one of his sons in North Carolina. >Cuthrell told the court today that he was "deeply, deeply remorseful" and he now sees the severity of his actions. "It was the most irrational decision that I made in my life," he told the judge. "I can't say just how bad I hate it." >Several family members and friends attended today's hearing to support Cuthrell, including the pastor of Gospel Shepherd Baptist Church, which will allow Cuthrell to continue as music minister when he's released from prison. >"I think he is a good man who did something bad in a moment of weakness," defense attorney Richard Gates told the judge.
>SEATTLE - A 45-year-old man is in serious condition with a gunshot wound to the stomach after an argument inside the Union Gospel Mission at around 11:45 Wednesday morning. >Seattle police initially arrested an 82-year-old man, but later released him in the afternoon when he told them a 45-year-old man was trying to rob and assault him. >Union Gospel Mission staff identified the 45-year-old as Darren Jerome Nelson. Nelson, who has previously served prison time, had been coming to receive services for the last few months. Staff told KIRO 7 Nelson is a frequent visitor who is trying to turn his life around. >Nelson's fiancee, Nicole Simper, said she saw the whole exchange. She said Nelson was not trying to rob anyone. >Simper said she and Nelson were in the community room, a holding place where 70 people were gathered before going into the dining room before lunch. >She said she saw Nelson get up to talk to a friend. When the friend left, he somehow got into a heated exchange with the 82-year-old man. She heard Nelson say some racial remarks to the older man. >Simper, who is Caucasian, said that her fiance, who is African-American, never speaks like that. She said he must have been provoked. She then saw the 82-year-old shoot Nelson. >Police said he shot twice. Staff at the mission said Nelson was hit in the stomach. >Simper said, "What if you knew that person that was shot? What if you were in my shoes, knowing that shooter was still out there? And my husband - is in - not breathing on his own?" >As of Wednesday night, Nelson was in serious condition at Harborview Medical Center. >This location of the Union Gospel Mission includes a men's shelter, a dental clinic, legal services and a drug rehabilitation program. >Terry Pallas, the director of the men's shelter, said his office was right upstairs from the community room. >"As soon as I heard a shot and a scream immediately following, I ran downstairs, mobilized the staff," he said. "There was a tussle, the weapon was exposed, and they were able to get the weapon on the floor and quite a ways away from the perpetrator. He just actually stood on the gun with his foot until police came just to keep it on the exact same location." >Pallas said that they have a strict no-weapons policy at the Union Gospel Mission. Those who have shown any aggression in the past are not permitted to enter. >He said the staff did not know the 82-year-old well. He said the man was not in the mission's register and that some staff only knew him to be someone who slept in his car a few blocks away. >Pallas said they do not have a pat-down procedure for people entering, and they only occasionally wand people entering to sleep for the night. >"The entire reason why we exist as an organization is really to create a space for folks to get in out of the elements, to get a warm meal when they don't have the ability, to eat or have a safe place to sleep," he said.
Northern Marion County home invasions raise worries among neighborhood groups >As police continue to investigate a string of violent home invasions in northern Marion County over the past several days, neighborhood groups are taking action. >The violence started Oct. 24 when four young men armed with guns robbed a home in the 7000 block of North Spring Mill Road. Police say the homeowners were tied up while the men ransacked the house and made off in one of the victims' vehicles. The victims also were assaulted and sustained minor injuries. >Tuesday morning, about 3 miles away, four men broke into a house in the 800 block of East 79th Street in the Windcombe neighborhood. They shot one woman and assaulted another before fleeing in the victims' three vehicles. >Both incidents remain under investigation, and police will not publicly speculate as to whether the invasions are related. >But local neighborhood association representatives say they are concerned about the rash of crime and are looking for ways to keep one another safe. >"These last incidents were extremely brazen, and I think that's what's terrified people," said Terry O'Brien, a Meridian Hills town councilman. Meridian Hills borders the site of the Oct. 24 incident and is close to the second. >"Your heart goes out for the families that were affected, but it does put the fear of God in you when you think you can't go in your backyard to rake leaves or leave your garage door open without something bad happening." >O'Brien said Meridian Hills is planning a meeting for its residents and has been consulting with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and the town's part-time police patrols. >In the Windcombe neighborhood, the attitude is similar. Paul Forbes, president of the Windcombe Neighborhood Association, said he has contacted CrimeStoppers and officers at IMPD about how the neighborhood can best proceed after Tuesday's home invasion. >"We're keeping everybody abreast of everything we know," Forbes said, adding that he hopes to hold a meeting with residents and police officers in December. >"I've been here 23 years," he said. "It's outrageous. Nobody would think that that could happen here." >IMPD spokesman Chris Bailey said police are asking anyone with knowledge about either home invasion to step forward.
Three men arrested in Far Northside home invasion >Indianapolis Metropolitan police have arrested three men in connection with the robbery of an East 79th Street home Tuesday and the sexual assault of a woman inside. >The arrests also appear to connect the men to a similar crime committed Oct. 24, when a group of men armed with guns tied up the owners of a home on North Spring Mill Road, ransacked their house and made off in one of the victims' vehicles. Police say property found during the investigation that led to the arrests belonged to the North Spring Mill Road homeowners. >Trey Spells, 18, and Alexander Dupree, 23, were arrested and preliminarily charged with rape, criminal deviate conduct, robbery and criminal confinement, authorities said. Each is being held on a $200,000 bond. >Michael Pugh, 21, was arrested and preliminarily charged with serious violent felon in possession of a firearm. He is being held on an $80,000 bond. >Police said the investigation is ongoing. >The attack in the 800 block of East 79th Street was carried out by as many as four or five men, police said, who also shot a woman and stole three vehicles from the Far Northside home shortly before 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. >The two women were sleeping at the time, a police dispatcher said. A woman in her 50s was shot in the leg and taken to St. Vincent Indianapolis Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. >She and her husband, who is also in his 50s, were inside the two-story brick colonial with their daughter, who is in her 20s. The men forced their way inside the residence, police said, and at one point forced the women to drive to an ATM and withdraw money. >Although the crime was initially reported as a robbery, the incident was later categorized in a police report as a rape. >A police report about Dupree's arrest said he was taken to Wishard Memorial Hospital for a forensic examination before being taken to the Arrestee Processing Center. A detailed probable cause affidavit, the report said, would be forwarded to the Marion County Prosecutor's Office at a later time. >He has yet to be formally arraigned on the charges. >Dupree has four prior felony convictions for robbery and criminal confinement for robbing four people at gunpoint on the Northwestside. In the July 15, 2009, incident, Dupree also forced victims to drive to an ATM to withdraw cash, according to court documents. >One of the victims told police she and her parents were walking on Knollton Road, near Michigan Road, when Dupree - armed with a handgun - approached her parents from behind and demanded money. The victim said she ran after her boyfriend, who was just driving around the corner, to ask for his help. But Dupree, documents said, followed the victim to the car and demanded that they drive him to an ATM machine. The victim's boyfriend later withdrew $200 from his Chase bank account and gave the money to Dupree. >The parents, who were left behind, called police while Dupree, their daughter and her boyfriend were at the bank, documents said. >Doug Garrison, spokesman for the Indiana Department of Corrections, said Dupree was initially sentenced to 16 years in prison for the armed robbery and criminal confinement charges, but the court suspended eight years of that sentence with two years to be served in community corrections. That left six years of the sentence to be served in prison beginning on March 2010. In February 2012, Dupree was accepted into a community transition program and was released on probation in April 2012. >Garrison said Dupree's sentence was further shortened after he earned good-time credits and credits for completing a substance abuse program and PLUS, a faith- and character-based program. >Pugh also has a prior felony robbery conviction. He was sentenced to six years in prison in June 2010 and was released on supervised parole last January. Like Dupree, his sentence was shortened through credit time earned and for completing a substance abuse program. >Spells does not appear to have a record with the Department of Corrections. >It's unclear whether police expect additional arrests - at least one or two more men were suspected to be involved in the home invasion - but IMPD Police Chief Rick Hite described the investigation as ongoing. >"We're still looking for the remaining members" of the group, Hite said. "We're taking this very seriously. This was a heinous crime that is unacceptable in the city. >"We will find them. We will look for them as long as it takes."
>NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Few items are as attractive to a would-be thief as a Smartphone. One Wilson County woman recently found out the hard way when her iPhone was stolen. >Tai Hall, a special education teacher, said she was shopping two weeks ago with her mom and sister at Opry Mills Mall when she noticed her iPhone 4 was missing. >"My cell phone went missing from my purse," she recalled. "I have an app to track it, so I track it to the middle of the Opry Mills food court. There's a machine that take cell phones and gives you money. I alerted my phone and I heard it ringing in the machine, so I know it's there." >The machine made by ecoATM, is described by the company's Web site as an automated, consumer self-serve kiosk that quickly evaluates and buys back used consumer electronics directly form consumers for cash. >The purpose of the machine is to help recycle hundreds of thousands of old cell phones. >The Web site states the company has machines locally at Opry Mills Mall, Rivergate, Stones River and the Governors Square malls. >According to ecoATM, every cell phone seller must provide a driver's license and a thumb print, which is electronically recorded and made available to police as part of the transaction. >Hall, however, said she does not believe the machines are a good idea, especially if just anyone can sell phones. >"I really want people to know this machine exists and it is awful," she said. "Without the app, I'd never [get my phone] back. I don't like that anyone can pick up a phone, theirs or not, put it in there and immediately get cash." >Metro police told Nashville's News 2 Quan Fisher is the man who sold Hall's phone at the kiosk. >The 18-year-old is charged with theft of property and was identified as the seller of the device by ecoATM technology. >Company officials said they shared all of Fisher's information, which he supplied when he sold the phone, with police working the case. >By phone, Nashville's News 2 Investigates spoke with Fisher who said he is not a thief and that he feels like he was conned by a woman who got him to sell the phone for her by using his fingerprint and identification. >"All I did was give my ID and my thumb print and my picture," he said. "I didn't get any money out of it. I thought she was trying to get some money together to buy herself an iPhone. I didn't think it was stolen." >Fisher said the woman he helped sell the phone for is around 27-years-old, five foot, three inches tall and had blond hair with glasses. >He added that he didn't know the woman, but she had been hanging around the mall where he worked. >"I happen to be dumb. That messed me up. I mean, I made a dumb decision. I am paying the price for it," Fisher said. "I am not a thief. [I've] never stole anything in my life. I have no record, well, now I do, but I do because of this." >Nashville's News 2 Investigates asked Metro police about Fisher's assertion there was another person involved in selling the stolen electronic. >Officials in the public information office said Fisher did not raise that concern when he was arrested. >By phone, ecoATM told Nashville's News 2 Investigates their company is very law enforcement friendly and they are proactive in working with police all over the country. >"One thing we can do is reach out to police," Director of Marketing and Communications Ryan Kuder said. "What we're going to do is be cooperative with police. There are dozens of places in Nashville right now to get cash and sell stolen cell phones and there will be no questions asked." >He continued, "But If a thief sells a stolen phone at an ecoATM, they have increased the chances of returning that stolen phone by about 100%. If a stolen phone is found in an ecoATM we give the phone back at our own expense. We are victims too. We pay the shipping costs and the cost of the phone that we bought." >As to why Hall's phone has not been returned to her, Kuder said, "Our machine is an ATM. It has cash. It has phones in it. It is highly secured. It has a lot of security features. You just don't pop them open in mall. It could be a danger, making someone a target." >According to Kuder, Americans buy 150 million new phones per year, while many people have five or six old phones lying around at home. >He said the goal of ecoATM is to serve as an easy and convenient way for people to recycle their old devices. He added that the company recycles thousands of phone per day and that one in 1,500 phone sold are reported lost or stolen.
Suspect in cellphone robbery arrested after stolen phone captures face, location >Auburn, Wash. - Kailen Hall, 26, is in jail for investigation of robbery in the second degree. Jeremy Risinger said Hall grabbed his cell phone on a street corner in Auburn last Saturday and then threatened to pull out a gun and shoot him. Risinger said, "it just upset me, because I don't take to threats kindly." >He was more angry than scared, but quickly got his revenge. Risinger bought a new Samsung Galaxy smartphone and pulled up an ap he subscribed to called Look Out Mobile Security. The ap had snapped Hall's photo with the stolen phone when it sensed someone was trying to unlock it. It also gave Risinger the location where the picture was taken, within a few feet of Hall's apartment. Then Risinger went to his own Dropbox site on the web, where every photo taken with the stolen phone was automatically uploaded. There he found 39 still images and a couple of videos that were presumably taken by the guy who robbed him. Risinger said, "I started laughing really hard out loud and I was just like, what an idiot, I can't believe I actually got it." >Auburn police recognized the face in many of the pictures, because they've arrested Kailen Hall before. They simply went to his apartment and arrested him again. He's now being held in the jail at the Regional Justice Center in Kent. His bail has been set at 100-thousand dollars.

PD: Terrell Murder Suspect Had Hoped To Kill Even More
>TERRELL (CBSDFW.COM) - There is haunting new information about the terror that played out in Terrell. We now know police believe the gunman intended to kill at least two more people - if not three. >According to a Terrell police affidavit, Charles Everett Brownlow Jr. killed five of seven that he had hoped to kill. >Brownlow seemed to be going around town looking for people he knew. The Taqueria Dos Aces restaurant was one of several places he visited in the midst of the killing spree. >The affidavit written by a Terrell police officer details how in addition to the five victims, Brownlow tried to kill two other people… unsuccessfully. >When Brownlow walked into the taqueria, Terrell police say he had already shot and killed his mother and his aunt.

BULLETIN: Jeffrey Eldon Miles Sr. pleads guilty to murder in 2010 killing
>Jeffrey Eldon Miles Sr., 50, formerly of State Line pleaded guilty to murder in general in Franklin County Court today in connection to an April 2010 killing. >Miles was scheduled to go to trial next month for the stabbing death of Kristy Dawn Hoke, 29, of Hagerstown, whose body was found in Waynesboro. >In exchange for the plea deal, District Attorney Matthew Fogal said he would not pursue the death penalty against Miles. >The court will now decide the degree of the murder. A degree of guilt hearing is expected to begin Nov. 18 to determine whether Miles committed first- second-, or third-degree murder. Fogal said the hearing is expected to last four days, and he expects to call 12 witnesses. >Miles was arrested and charged with criminal homicide on April 6, 2010, when he reportedly led local law enforcement officials to Hoke's body, which had been dumped in a wooded area off of Ninth Street. Miles had been found earlier that morning along an Interstate 81 overpass on State Line Road threatening to harm himself. >Miles also has been charged with criminal homicide in the 1995 killing of Waynesboro teen Angie Lynn Daley. Charging documents indicate police found a notebook written by Miles that outlined the murder, and said he led police to her remains on a Waynecastle farm the day Hoke's body was found. >Miles is still awaiting trial in Daley's murder. It has been postponed until January 2014. He does not face the death penalty in that case. >Guilty plea >Judge Douglas Herman asked Miles a series of questions during the hearing, noting for the record he did understand he was voluntarily submitting the plea. Herman also asked Miles to tell him what happened on April 4, 2010, the day Hoke was killed. >"I'm responsible for stabbing Kristy Dawn Hoke with a pair of scissors that caused her death," Miles said. >The state now has to determine why Miles killed Hoke, and whether the murder was committed with malice. >If convicted of first-degree murder, he will face a life sentence without the possibility of parole. A second-degree murder conviction also would yield a life sentence, and a third-degree murder conviction would result in a 40-year prison sentence. >Read Wednesday's Record Herald for the full story.

Testimony begins in Terrance Hale murder trial >OMAHA, Neb. -Prosecutors say a man on trial for murder called 911 to report the incident. >During opening arguments in Terrance Hale's trial Tuesday, deputy county attorney Beth Beninato set the scene for the jury comprising seven men and six women. >Hale, 30, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Raymond Vasholz, 83. >Authorities said Hale broke into the Vasholzes home near 33rd and Martin streets, demanded money and set fire to the residence on Feb. 7. >"(Elizabeth Vasholz) heard a loud crash, the sound of glass breaking in the basement," Beninato said. >When Elizabeth Vasholz went to the top of the basement steps that morning, Beninato said, she recognized the man as someone who had shoveled her walkway previously. >Beninato said Hale told the couple their home was on fire and demanded money before attacking them. Elizabeth fought back, but when she leaned over to check on her husband, she felt a couch cushion on fire being pressed on her back. >The Vasholzes were taken to area hospitals, and Raymond later died from his injuries. >The defense argues, however, that no one else witnessed Hale attack either of the Vasholzes or start a fire. >"The state has not met the burden of proof and can't prove beyond a reasonable doubt Hale did this," assistant public defender Scott Sladek said. >Beninato said the case is about control and manipulation. >"The defendant himself makes a 911 call," Beninato said. >Sladek said the court will hear from a man who saw that Hale never once tried to leave or flee the scene even though Elizabeth Vasholz pointed at him, accusing him of the crime. >"Terrance replied to her, 'I didn't do it; I was trying to save you,'" Sladek told the jury. >Sladek urged the jury not to let natural emotions play a role in the trial. >Prosecutors called Omaha firefighters to the stand Tuesday, asking for details on what they saw when they arrived and what they found inside the home. >Firefighter Steve LeClair, who helped get Raymond Vasholz out of the home, testified that when he arrived at the scene, he saw police officers struggling with a man outside. LeClair was not able to describe the man when asked during cross-examination, however. >Firefighter Kyle Staudt said he noticed a stove had been moved, blocking the entryway to the dining room from the kitchen. He also noted blood streaks on the refrigerator. >Staudt testified that Raymond Vasholz was found in the master bedroom on the southeast corner of the home. >Testimony will continue Wednesday.
Anderson County man sentenced to 375 years in prison for sexual assault of child
>PALESTINE, TX - Willis Demond Carwell, 32, of Palestine was sentenced to a total of 375 years in prison on five counts of sexual assault of a child on Tuesday afternoon at the Anderson County Courthouse. >A jury of eight men and four women reached verdicts of 75 years on each count at 1:13 p.m. on Tuesday following a sentencing hearing which started on Monday. >Carwell showed little emotion as District Judge Pam Foster Fletcher who presided over trial read the jury's substantial verdict. >Anderson County Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Watkins represented the State of Texas with assistance from District Attorney Doug Lowe. >Carwell had earlier pleaded guilty to the assaults which are second degree felony. However, the possible punishment range was increased to a minimum of 5 years and maximum of 99 years or life because Carwell had been to prison for burglary of a habitation. >The female child victim testified in response to questioning by Assistant District Attorney Watkins about how she came to know Carwell. >"My mom took me with her to a meeting of Alcoholic's Anonymous and we met and I talked to him (Carwell). He came over to our house after that," the victim said. >"He came to my 14th birthday party," the victim,now 15 told the jury. >"The first time we had sex I left my window unlocked and he snuck in. When we had sex I thought it was wrong, but didn't say anything," said the victim. >"I felt like I was in love with him (Carwell). He was 31, but I didn't think about his age,"related the victim to the jury. >"Then I started getting a urinary infection so my mother took me to the hospital," the victim said. "The nurse told me I was pregnant. My mom was in shock." >"I had the baby because I believe abortion is wrong. I plan on raising my baby," added the victim. >The jury heard testimony from Anderson County Sheriff's Office Sergeant Ronnie Foster the case's lead investigator that DNA testing proved Carwell was the father of the baby born to the victim. >Jessi Jones, RN and Anderson County Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner testified the child victim's physical development was age appropriate for a fourteen year, but that the victim was obviously emotionally immature. >"She told me that they were going to get married and live happily ever after," Jones related to the jury. >Jones told the jury "This is why the law says children cannot consent to sexual encounters. Even if they have the physical ability to have sex, they are not emotionally equipped to handle the results." >In closing arguments Assistant District Attorney Watkins told the jury, "This defendant was manipulative and a user. It's not up to a child to say 'no;' it'sup too the 31 year old grown man not prey on a vulnerable and easy target. And, now it's up to you to decide theright punishmentt. " >District Attorney Doug Lowe commented on the verdict and said "The defendant's crime and his lengthy criminal history justify the longprison sentences. It's obvious to me that Carwell took advantage of a child and preyed upon her immaturity,added Lowewe. >Evidence presented during the trial showed Carwell was on parole at the time of the crime. >Under Texas law, an offender serving a 75 year sentence iseligible for parole after 30 years. >However, Judge Fletcher elected to "stack" one othe sentenceses so Carwell will serve at least 60 years before he is eligiblfor parolele. >Local attorney, Mark Cargill represented Carwell. >The identity of the victim or victim's family is noprovided inin order to protect the privacy of the injured parties.

>ZANESVILLE, Ohio - The third attacker in the beating and burning death of Celeste Fronsman is scheduled to be sentenced on Wednesday, following the sentencing of two attackers this morning. >Muskingum County Prosecutor Mike Haddox said he will recommend that county Common Pleas Judge Kelly Cottrill sentence Katrina Culberson to life in prison without parole for her role in the murder, plus 11 years consecutive for kidnapping. >That's the sentence Cottrill gave LaFonse Dixon Jr. yesterday morning. >Cottrill followed the sentencing recommendation the jury made on Oct. 22. >The same jury found Dixon guilty on Oct. 17 of aggravated murder, aggravated arson and kidnapping. Dixon, 34, of Canton, could have received the death penalty. >Also this morning, Muskingum County Common Pleas Judge Mark C. Fleegle sentenced Monica Washington to life in prison with parole eligibility after 25 years for aggravated murder, aggravated arson and kidnapping. The judge merged the murder and arson into one sentence and also sentenced her to 11 years, to be served concurrently, for kidnapping. >Culberson, who joined Washington in pleading guilty to the same crimes and testified with her against Dixon at his trial, deserves a tougher sentence than Washington received because she played a more prominent role, Haddox said. >"She and Dixon were in this together from the beginning," Haddox said. "Culberson was the one who poured the gasoline on the victim and lit her on fire." >Washington sobbed and trembled as she stood to face the judge for sentencing. "I take full responsibility," she said. "I am so sorry. I would like to ask her family to forgive me." >Family members of Fronsman were not in court this morning. Her aunt has said previously that she was satisfied that Dixon would be in prison the rest of his life. >Dixon showed no emotion at his sentencing and declined the judge's invitation to speak. He said he stood by the remarks he made on Oct. 22, when he told the jury at his sentencing hearing that the case against him was built on lies. >As he stood to be sentenced today, Cottrill told him, "Ms. Fronsman died a horrific death at your hands. Your self-absorbed, anything-goes lifestyle led directly to her death." >Prosecutors said that on August 26, 2012, Dixon, Culberson and Washington drove Fronsman from Canton to Muskingum County, where they beat her, choked her and set her on fire. The brutality was retaliation. Prosecutors said Dixon thought Fronsman had snitched on his drug dealing. >She lived for two more days after a motorist found her on Rt. 208 near Zanesville, wailing in agony and burned over 70 percent of her body. >Fronsman, 29, was a prostitute addicted to crack cocaine. She knew her attackers from her life on the streets of Canton, where Dixon sold drugs. >Culberson, 22, and Washington, 25, who also were crack-addicted prostitutes, took plea deals in which they pleaded guilty to aggravated murder, aggravated arson and kidnapping in exchange for county Prosecutor Mike Haddox taking the death penalty off the table. They testified against Dixon as part of the deal. >Culberson testified that after Fronsman was beaten and choked during the drive from Stark County to Muskingum County, the group stopped at a secluded spot. >Dixon dragged Fronsman to a thicket of tall grass. There, Culberson testified, she poured gasoline on Fronsman and then flicked Dixon's lighter and set her on fire.

Harvey was in a green Honda Accord carrying one person. >Walker cut Harvey off when both vehicles tried to make a left turn at the same place. >The two drivers exchanged angry words as their cars swerved around each other on the shoulder of the road. >Both eventually came to a halt, and Harvey, an unmarried truck driver, allegedly shouted racial epithets as he approached the officer's van. >Walker fired several shots from six to 12 feet away at Harvey, who was unarmed. >Walker was charged with murder and is free on $1 million bail. He was suspended from his job without pay. >The charge has had a profound effect on his life. >"Emotionally, it rocked me,'' he said. "I've spent my life trying to protect and serve. I can't describe how emotionally devastating it's been. >"I am a dedicated law-enforcement professional, someone who, when I come home from work, takes off his tie and roughhouses with his son and plays with dolls and has tea parties with his daughters. >"I help my 10-year-old daughter with her homework, then I sit down and watch television with my wife." >Walker's lawyers say there's evidence Harvey had downed several alcoholic beverages prior to the clash and had been spewing racial slurs. >"He certainly had been drinking prior to the incident," said one lawyer, Anthony Pope. >"He also used the N-word. This was confirmed by witnesses,'' including Harvey's passenger, Adam Pidel. >Another of Walker's attorneys, Patrick McAndrew, told The Washington Post that Harvey was out of control. >"He [Harvey] was enraged, screaming at the [Walker] family in their van. His wife was in the passenger seat, she could distinctly hear [the slurs]. There were threats of violence; they were on notice," he said. >No trial date has been set, but Walker, who claims self-defense, said, "I look forward to my day in court and clearing my name and obtaining justice." >The office of the Maryland prosecutor that brought the case declined comment. >A friend of Harvey's, Jennie Jones, who had known him since he was a child, told Baltimore TV station WJZ that she'll be in court for the trial. >Jones, who said she heard Harvey was shot as he was falling, added she's praying that her friend "gets justice."
