    Concealment of evidence in 2012 capital murder case leads to 7th delay

    For the seventh time, the death penalty trial for a Louisville man charged with killing 15-year-old Gregory Holt in 2012 has been postponed – this time because a judge decided his attorneys have a conflict of interest. James Mallory’s trial was supposed to begin Friday in the slaying of the teen, who is believed to have been an unintended target when he was shot in his home about six and a half years ago. But Jefferson Circuit Court Judge Susan Schultz Gibson ruled Tuesday that Mallory’s attorneys for the last three years have a conflict of interest and she must find him new representation.

    Claims by Dallas Officer Who Killed Man in His Own Home Raise New Questions

    An off-duty Dallas police officer who fatally shot her neighbor in his apartment, claiming she mistook the unit for her own, told the authorities that the door was already ajar when she entered and that she shot him after he ignored verbal commands, according to court records released on Monday. The officer, Amber R. Guyger, 30, who has been charged with manslaughter, could face additional charges in a case that has led to accusations that the officer received preferential treatment and debate about whether race may have played a role in the deadly encounter between a white police officer and a black man in his home.

    Man stops to help stranded motorist who turned out to be hitman hired to kill him

    When police found Carlos Cruz-Echevarria dead near his home last Veterans Day, he was lying face down in a ditch, shot multiple times in the head. Beside him was a truck stuck in the mud. Later, the 60-year-old army veteran’s car was found several miles away, torched. It seemed like a random, senseless killing: authorities thought Cruz-Echevarria had been robbed and left for dead after stopping to help a stranger on a Daytona Beach roadside. But a year long investigation has revealed that it was anything but random.

    Life has apparently imitated art for one romance writer.

Nancy Crampton-Brophy, the writer of sensuous mysteries such as "Hell on the Heart" and "The Wrong Husband," was arrested for murder on Sept. 5 – more than three months after the death of her spouse.

    In a decade that has seen countless horrific images of war, never has one shown soldiers from a military that benefits from American support carry out such a heartless and heart-rending act. A video that went viral last month showed men identified as troops from the U.S.-backed army of Cameroon, but accompanied by other men not in uniform, lead two women down a dirt road. One woman has an infant, perhaps a year old, tied to her back in a traditional African wrap and clinging to her sides. The other woman leads a little girl by the hand who could not be older than six.
