In The Mean Time...
Bayswater, Australia – The sentencing hearing has begun for David Warwick Hopkins, 42. Hopkins has pleaded guilty to killing his former girlfriend, Nicole Joy Millar, by first stabbing her – and then incinerating her – at a gas station in the early morning of June 1, 2010.
The incident wasn’t entirely without warning. The court heard testimony that, a week earlier, Hopkins had smashed his vehicle into Millar’s and threatened to kill her.
On the morning of June 1, though, Hopkins was reportedly with Millar – filling the tank of her car while she sat inside it. The court account says that Hopkins then leaned in Millar’s car, stabbed Millar in the neck with a knife and sprayed her with gasoline from the nozzle. He then lit her on fire using his cigarette lighter. Millar, engulfed in flames, fell from her burning vehicle. Witnesses – thinking that it was a tragic accident – tried to come to her aid.
Prosecutor John Champion told the court that Hopkins slashed at his own chest with the knife and warned the witnesses that they would be attacked if they approached.…
Holland, MI – Chad Bradbury, 24, was supposed to marry his fiancée, Samantha Stille, 23, today. The wedding is understandably off due to the fact that he – and the bride’s brother – died in a car crash Thursday night. The crash was as spectacular as it was tragic.
Bradbury, Michael Stille, 22, and best man, Jeffrey Hinds, 25, were reportedly on their way to the tuxedo shop when the vehicle they were in left the roadway, went airborne, and landed on a house. Stille died in the crash. Hinds, who was driving, is in fair condition at a local hospital – but is expected to be okay.
News reports said that speed is believed to be a factor in the crash.
On Thursday Bradbury left work at Vandenberg Stereo, telling the guys he’d ‘be back soon.’
“That’s what’s so haunting,” said Ron Vandenberg, Bradbury’s boss, “when he left we had no idea that was the last time I was going to say goodbye to him. So devastating.”…
Wauconda, IL – The minister of a fringe religious sect is being investigated after a claim by one of his flock that his unorthodox personal prayer sessions may have involved minors.
The sessions, which minister Phillip Livingston calls ‘light therapy’, involve him and one of his
sheep followers alone in a room together. Naked. Touching each other. On their hoo-hoos. I am so starting my own church.
The therapy sessions occurred in his home, and started off somewhat less creepy. A patient would lay on a couch, fully clothed and Livingston would touch them as they prayed. His wife would be present and no one was touched inappropriately. It wasn’t long, though, before Livingston subtracted his wife and clothes from the equation while adding a private room and some good old fashioned junk-touching. He would touch them, even penetrate them with his digits, while they touched him and both prayed.
He claims that the therapy produced miraculous results, curing drug addiction and turning homosexuals and sex addicts into ‘virtuous people’.…
Bond, reportedly annoyed by the girlfriend’s voice and loud music playing in the background, allegedly lunged at the woman, grabbed her by the throat and shoved her. Police said Bond also tried to trip the woman.
The 28-year-old then allegedly smashed the woman’s cellphone on the bathroom vanity and threatened to kill her.
Bond was booked on charges of fourth-degree assault and intimidating a witness. A bail amount has not yet been made available.
In my opinion, a reaction like that can only be brought forth by that John Denver dude – Take Me Home, Country Roads makes me feel all kinds of violent.
Kind of off topic here, but I gotta know – is there a particular song out there that makes ya want to punch a bunny every time you hear it? Doesn’t matter if it’s playing on the radio or being whistled by the man behind you in line at the grocery store, you just hate the fact that it even exists.…
UK – A 46-year-old man admitted he “lost it” after a 13-year-old boy killed his character in Call of Duty: Black Ops and would not stop taunting him.
Mark Bradford said: “I’d been playing the whole day and he was baiting me and baiting me and just would not shut up. He went on and on and I just lost it. In a moment of madness I went round to his house. I didn’t know what I was going to do.”
So he improvised.
Bradford admits he confronted the teen and put his hands around the teen’s neck.
The unidentified boy said: “I was just sat playing. We’d had a bit of a joke and then he stormed in and grabbed me. I didn’t know what was going on.”
Bradford’s attack was interrupted by the teen’s mother who pulled Bradford off of her son. Bradford simply walked away without saying a word.
In court answering to assault charges, Bradford’s lawyer said his client has mental health issues and the attack was not planned.…
MERRIMACK, N.H. – I know it’s a sickness but my penis has a hard spot for crazy women with anger management issues like 28-year-old Cassandra Beauchesne. She has been arrested for the fourth time in one year, twice in one week, for abusing her husband in some fashion.
It all started back in December of last year when Beauchesne, a reading and math teacher at Maple Avenue Elementary School, was charged with simple assault for allegedly slapping and punching her husband in the face as well as choking him twice.
In March those charges were dropped on the same day she was arrested and charged with second-degree assault. According to court documents, she tried to strangle her husband by “wrapping her right arm around his neck and applying pressure.” She also switched up her strangulation method using the old-fashioned, yet effective, method of using both of her hands.
The other day police were called to the couple’s home on a domestic disturbance call where they found she had smashed her husband’s computer.…
Ferndale, MI - 43 year-old Steven Fitch died from a meth overdose at the home of a reverend he met on a gay dating website that day.
Reverend Mark Bidwell,52, is known to be gay, so that part isn’t a shock. What is shocking, though, is that Bidwell was the town’s police chaplain before this happened, having since been let go.
Bidwell invited Fitch over to his house for a little game of ‘hide the pickle.’ When they were done, though, Fitch allegedly produced a syringe containing meth, and injected both himself and the reverend with it.
While all the other homosexual, anonymous-internet-sex-having reverends where tucked safe and sound in their beds, Bidwell went back online and found a third person to join them around 3:30am. 28 year-old Bret Colpaert now has a story to tell when the topic of internet sex horror stories comes up.
Shortly after he arrived, Fitch began having breathing troubles and turned blue. At 5:30am Bidwell called 911.When asked the age of the victim, Bidwell responded by saying he didn’t know.…
Little Falls, NY — Jennifer R. Riesel, 28, is in custody after police charged her in the killing of 74-year-old Francis R. Nelson. Nelson’s body was reported to have been found Tuesday morning near his abandoned vehicle by a farmer outside of town. His hands and feet were tied. According to NY State Police, Riesel was driving a friend’s Chrysler Sebring when she ran Nelson over with the car, killing him.
At a news conference, NY State Police Capt. Mark Lincoln said Riesel told police that Nelson told her that he was terminally ill and promised her $180,000 to kill him by running him over with a car. The story was corroborated by others who may have been approached by the man earlier for the same reason, Lincoln said.
Riesel’s attorney, Ed Kaminski, said Riesel had known Nelson for at least four years and that he was “like a grandfather [to her].” According to Kaminski, Riesel said Nelson wanted his death to look like a deadly robbery. …
On Sunday, Marcus Trotman shot and killed his wife, 30-year-old Danielle Lorenzo, and his mother-in-law, 56-year-old Linda Scudera, before turning the gun on himself. The asshole did this inside their home in front of Danielle’s 5-year-old daughter, Angelique.
The little girl ran next door to Allison, a woman who lived in an adjoining town home, who called 911. The uncut recording (listen to it here) has been released and I gotta admit that listening to Angelique asking Allison if she could live with her since her family was dead tugged at the heart strings a bit — and I don’t even have one.
A judge is now deciding where to place the girl who is currently in the care of a paternal grandfather. On Tuesday a man attended a court hearing claiming to be the girl’s father and consented to a DNA test.…
NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – A California woman is facing some legal issues after police say she drunkenly flipped her vehicle with her 4-year-old inside and then tried to flee the scene without her kid.
Reports are that early Wednesday morning, the woman crashed her car into some parked cars causing her to roll her vehicle on its roof.
Neighbors say that when they heard the crash they came out and helped pull the woman’s unrestrained child out of the car as her drunk mother was running around asking where her other children where.
Neighbors then began searching underneath cars and around the general area fearing that there may be possible victims who were ejected from the vehicle, but would not find anyone.
I’m guessing it was during this time that the woman tried to leave the scene through a neighboring field without her child. Police would catch her a block away and arrest her on suspicion of drunk driving and child endangerment. Neither she nor her child suffered any life-threatening injuries.…
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Police have arrested a man, charging him with punching his girlfriend’s 3-year-old son in the face, breaking his jaw.
I’m posting about 21-year-old Troy Woods, the “man” accused of breaking the kid’s face, not only because of what he did, but also to commend the kid’s grandparents for what they did afterwards.
When the boy’s grandparents first noticed the boy was lethargic and drooling blood, they rushed him to the hospital and then went to Woods’ apartment, where he had been babysitting the boy, in an attempt to gather evidence. They allegedly discovered a trash bag inside the dumpster that contained: a white belt with feces on it, a children’s undershirt with what appeared to be saliva-diluted blood stains, and several blood-stained napkins.
A case worker from the Indiana Department of Child Services was contacted by hospital staff after the boy was found to be suffering from bruising and scratches to the buttocks and hips, swelling to the face, bruising to the forearm and abrasions to the wrist.…
Winnipeg, CA — Back in 2009, Jaded brought you the original story of Nikita Eaglestick, 21. I encourage you to read it, but I will summarize here.
On Aug. 31, 2009, Eaglestick had been out of jail just three days after having been charged with charged with assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm, and 12 other charges related to an attack she had allegedly perpetrated on a woman using a screwdriver. Eagletrick was under court order to abstain from alcohol.
After admittedly drinking on that day, she headed to a Winnipeg house party where more alcohol would be served. It was… and she drank it.
According to court documents, at around 4:30AM, Eaglelick picked up 13-month-old Vanessa Houle – who was asleep on the couch – and took her outside. There, she started smashing the baby’s face against the sidewalk. She did not stop.
Thankfully, not long after a neighbor, Tyler Bilsborrow, stepped outside his family’s home for a cigarette when he heard what he described as “weird sounds, like screaming sounds.” Bilsborrow followed the sounds around the corner and saw Eaglehick beating a child.…
IOWA CITY — Police arrested a woman in Iowa, charging her with domestic abuse, after she ripped a door off a house and smacked her bitch up after he refused to have sex with her.
Police say 28-year-old Melissa Minarsich got into an argument with her boyfriend after he refused to feed her vagina. Minarsich allegedly did not take her her demands for dick being rebuffed and became violent, hitting her boyfriend a couple of times and ripping a storm door off the house.
When police arrived they noted Minarsich smelled strongly of alcohol and was slurring her speech. She also did not deny the allegations. “All shy wansh ish a p-p-piece of ass *hic* izat too, too…. *hic* too mush to ask fer?” Minarsich asked the police.
Because this is the second time Minarsich has been charged with domestic assault, having been convicted of it once before in 2009, she’s looking at a possible two year prison sentence and a fine of $6,250.…
It all started when a police officer happened across a couple of drunk teenagers….
The officer had detained the two teens for underage drinking, and when asked where their parents were, one of the juveniles pointed to a car parked nearby and told the officer he would find her mother in there.
When the officer approached the vehicle, he found Wilson and the teen “engaged in a sexual encounter.”
Wilson was booked on a single count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and was ordered held on $75,000 bail.
Police say Wilson was charged earlier this year with misdemeanor contributing to the delinquency of a child and possessing drug paraphernalia. That case still is pending.…
According to police, Mills entered Shenaniganz Bar with the child Sunday evening, approached a male patron and pulled his hair. Wait…what? Baby or no baby, that’s a real pussy move. I guess he must have left his purse in the car…
Anyway, the hair tuggin’ led to some sort of fight, which I imagine was nothing more than a couple of bitch slaps and a few girlish screams.
When the first fight (?) concluded, Mills reportedly handed the child to a friend in the bar and confronted a second man, striking him with his fists. No word on whether anyone lost any hair or suffered any broken nails during that confrontation.
At some point during all this rumblin’, Mills managed to toss back about six beers. Fortunately, the police arrived before Mills could take off with the infant in his car.
The little spitfire wasn’t quite done – when the arresting officer placed him under arrest, Mills reportedly struck him.…
According to police, the woman bumped into 34-year-old Dennis Dodson in a field behind a Home Depot while taking a shortcut home from the bank last Thursday. Police say she gave the man $5 and some food, returning later with a little more cash and a promise to help find him a place to stay. Later that evening, she called the Salvation Army and her church to arrange housing for Dodson. They, in turn, suggested the woman call police to do a well-being check on the man.
She returned to the field the next morning to find Dodson lying on the ground and surrounded by beer cans. When the woman told Dodson she had spoken with police and firemen about local homeless shelters, he attacked.
Police say an agitated Dodson grabbed the woman by the shoulders and began kissing her, trying to force his tongue in her mouth.…
Pistey had at some point been involved with Hendershot. She would tell her new boyfriend that Jacob had raped her. On July 14th, Hendershot received a text message from Pistey’s current catch, telling him off. Hendershot was later lured to a residence where he was beaten by three men: William Chase, Joel Millsap and James Gay. One of the men allegedly punch Jacob with a chain wrapped around his wrist. Jacob would then be strangled and have his throat cut.
Millsap and Chase then allegedly took a boat into East Bay and dumped their and Hendershot’s clothes into the water. His body was placed in a storm drain where it would be for damn near a month before anyone found it. All three of the men would be arrested eventually, as would 30 year-old Tammy Lee Morris.…
OKLAHOMA CITY — The man who doused his sleeping girlfriend with kerosene before lighting a match and setting her on fire has been charged with her murder.
Earlier this month, 28-year-old Vincent Green got into an argument with his girlfriend, 46-year-old Sherrie Mead. Green became exceptionally angry when Mead informed him that she would not be coming home after work the next day, telling her that he was going to set her and the house on fire.
Figuring this was an empty threat, Mead went to bed later that evening. She would find out she figured wrong when she awoke later that night to Green pouring Kerosene on her, then lighting a match. Mead was rushed to the hospital, suffering from second and third degree burns to 38 percent of her body.
Green was arrested and charged with arson, assault and battery with intent to kill, maiming and assault and battery causing great bodily injury. Yesterday he was charged with murder after Meade died during surgery last Saturday at Integris Baptist Hospital.…
