Police say 64-year-old Edgard Fuentes broke into his estranged wife’s home Thursday night and poured gasoline on her as she was sleeping.
Her son, 32-year-old Eric Montes, ran to her bedroom after hearing her yell in surprise and got into a struggle with Fuentes.
Montes was also doused with gasoline in his attempts to stop Fuentes, but he was unable to prevent Fuentes from igniting the gasoline and flee the home.
The resulting fire engulfed the home, destroying it. One neighbor described what he witnessed after hearing screaming.
“When I heard some screaming, they were in the back yard. I saw the lady rolling on the floor on fire. There was another lady crying for help,” he said.
Daisy Tapia, 61, and her son were both rushed to the hospital where they remained in critical condition for hours before dying from their injuries.…
The rippin’ and the tearin’ happened on Thursday during an argument between Tara Pegues and her boyfriend, Anthony Black, inside their apartment.
Police were called to the scene by a neighbor and arrived to see the couple shouting at each other. Both Pegues and Black told the cops that everything was fine and that their argument was not physical.
But, as the Black was speaking with police, he “reached down and picked something up that had rolled onto the ground,” according to reports.
Police said his posture changed immediately and he told them that “his testicle had just fallen out onto the ground.” (*GOT DAYUM!*)
Once Black was rushed to the hospital for treatment, he told police what had really happened. He said Pergues “snapped” during and argument over Black’s possibly infidelity, and began physically assaulting him.
Black said when he went to leave the apartment, Pegues grabbed his testicles and caused one of them “to detach from his body.”
Pegues was subsequently arrested and charged with both aggravated and domestic battery.…

He told police that his daughter-in-law, 24-year-old Krystle Villanueve, had attacked him with a knife and that she was still inside the home with her 5-year-old daughter.
The man told police he had been making lunch in the kitchen when he saw Villanueve walk into a back bedroom with a knife and then heard her daughter, Giovanna Hernandez, start crying.
She then walked out of the bedroom and started stabbing him in the back and forehead. He managed to wrestle the knife away from her and run outside. Neighbors told police that after the man exited the home, Villanueve also came out brandishing a shotgun before returning inside the home.
A SWAT team was called and entered the home to find Villanueve naked after having just taken a shower.…
Last November, police got a call from a woman who said she was shopping in a Walmart when a “creepy” man, later identified as 26-year-old Timothy Blake, was stalking her.
She said the man eventually got within inches of her when she felt something wet on her lower back and foot. She rushed to the bathroom and discovered the substance was sticky.
Police reviewed surveillance footage and could see Blake walking up to the woman and using a syringe to squirt her with some kind of liquid, later identified as Blake’s semen.
On Dec 28, a second woman called to report a similar incident and surveillance video would reveal the then unidentified Blake driving away from the store in a pickup truck. That truck was spotted two days later and stopped by Marietta police.
When Blake was questioned, he told police that he had simply thrown egg yolk at the women.…

The reason for the beating? The boys, ages 7 and 9, had apparently opened their Christmas presents early after finding them stashed in their mother’s closet. The boys’ sister got them out of the house and called police.
The boys told responding officers that Collins hit them with a belt buckle, threw them against a wall and bit one of them. Police noted that both boys were suffering injuries that corroborated their story.

On Nov 10, a family stepped outside of their home to investigate what their dog was barking at.

Mary Gaspar admitted to police that she got angry with her boyfriend, FIU senior tight end Jonnu Smith, for not paying enough attention to her.
The two had been arguing all day and while “feeling extremely emotional and stressed,” she boiled the water and attacked him with it in his dorm. When Smith did not react the way she wanted, she began hitting him.
Smith was taken to the hospital suffering from severe burns to his head, neck, back, shoulder and arm. Not only do these injuries sideline Smith, a prospect in next year’s NFL Draft, they could very well end his promising career.
Smith made the mid-season John Mackey Award watch list in 2014 and 2015, and the pre-season Mackey Award watch list in 2015 and 2016. Early NFL Draft projections have Smith as a late-round pick or un-drafted free agent.…

Lonnell McDonald was found guilty on Friday and sentenced to 10 years in prison for aggravated assault. The 28-year-old is still facing a pending charge for conspiracy to commit capital murder.
For any of you who may have missed the original story, the victim was raped and impregnated by her older brother in 2012 when she was just 14-years-old. She did not report the crime because she was embarrassed, but five months later her family could see that she was pregnant.
Fearing other children in the home would be removed by CPS if the details surrounding the girl’s pregnancy were investigated, the family decided to hide the crime. At first, 45-year-old Sharon Jones tried giving the girl multiple doses of birth control pills, emergency contraception pills and cinnamon tablets.
When none of these methods killed the baby, the family decided the only course of action was to beat the baby out of her.…
The boy was found Sunday morning, running down the street in a dirty diaper. He told authorities that his mother and her boyfriend forced him to live in a closet, beat him regularly, and fed him only protein shakes and cans of okra.
Prosecutors say the boy claimed to have been beaten with an extension cord, a pole, and a baseball bat. Even more disturbing is the boy’s claims that he was once forced to sit on the stove as his genitals were burned with a curling iron.
These allegations were later backed up by a court-appointed doctor who examined the boy and said that the he had the most injuries he had ever seen on one person. The boy and his 2-year-old sister are now in state custody.
Woods was arrested and charged with assault. She was denied bail by the judge who called her actions “depraved” and told Woods she was “a danger to society.” Police are still looking for her boyfriend.…
