Back in January, Carie Charlesworth had to call police three times in one weekend due to harassment issues involving her ex-husband, Martin Charlesworth. On Monday morning, when she went to work, she advised the principal of the situation and asked that police be called if he showed up at the school. Not deterred by the restraining order he had just been served, he showed up at the school.
The school went on lockdown, and Martin Charlesworth was arrested on two felony counts. After that incident, Carie was put on indefinite leave with pay and her four children who were attending the school were also banned.
Finally, in April, she received a letter from Holy Trinity School advising her that because of her ex-husband’s threatening and menacing behavior, her presence at the school posed a safety risk to the students and that she would not be receiving a teaching agreement for the next school year. In other words, after working there for 14 years, she has been fired even though she has done nothing wrong and her children have also been kicked out of school.…Continue Reading
Daly City, CA – Back in 2011, we reported on 39-year-old Jesusa Tatad, the woman who poured boiling water on her sleeping ex-husband and then whacked him with a baseball bat. On Wednesday, Tatad pleaded guilty to second-degree murder after the man died from his injuries.
Tatad and her ex-husband, 36-year-old Ronnie Tatad, were still living together in 2011 after their divorce three years prior. Tatad said Ronnie had promised to re-marry her and bring their two daughters, aged 9 and 14, back from the Philippines to live with them.
But the years passed and Ronnie never re-married her and he never brought their children home. To add insult to injury, Ronnie had gotten himself a girlfriend. In retaliation, Tatad waited for Ronnie to fall asleep, then dumped a pot of boiling water on him. When Ronnie jumped up and ran to the bathroom, Tatad whacked him in the head with a baseball bat.
Ronnie ran from the apartment half-naked, and was found hiding behind a car by a maintenance worker who called 911.…Continue Reading
This all started last week when Christopher and his 20-year-old girlfriend began to argue inside a parked car because she did not want to drive him to Valparaiso. Niloff became enraged and proceeded to hulk out on the car’s dashboard.
Niloff’s father, who happened to witness the commotion, came out to defuse his son’s hissy fit. This only further enraged Christoper, who got out of the car and began pummeling his 61-year-old father in the chest.
Also witness to this unfolding train wreck was Niloff’s 65-year-old uncle who decided the best course of action would be to call the cops and let them handle it. Niloff disagreed and charged his uncle before snatching away his phone. Now having the upper hand in the situation, Niloff allegedly grabbed his future baby’s mama by the throat and shoved her into a patio chair before ordering his dad and uncle to sit next to her or he would kill them all.…Continue Reading
Firefighters and police responding to a fire at an apartment building early Friday morning discovered the dead body of 24-year-old Michael Gonzales in one of the apartments.
His girlfriend, Gina Virgilio, initially told investigators that Gonzales had been drinking while celebrating his birthday when he started spitting gasoline from a cup on the floor and couch. When he lit a piece of paper, she says she ran out of the apartment. She said she heard glass break behind her, but never looked back.
After she left, she borrowed a cellphone to call her mother. She told her Gonzales had been abusive and was spitting gasoline at her while also using an aerosol can as a flamethrower. She said a fire broke out and that she had left the apartment. Virgilio was interviewed by police later that morning and then released that evening.
Her mother demanded to know what really happened when she returned from the interview and Virgilio did.…Continue Reading
Memphis, TN – Sometimes, as in this case, I post an article simply because of one line in the original article that I can’t help but find hilarious. Unfortunately, this article is regarding a fairly violent domestic assault out of Memphis.
Police say 30-year-old Angelus Gwynn and his girlfriend, 34-year-old Lakisha Cash, got into an argument over a car that led to Gwynn wrapping a tow chain around Cash’s neck and choking her until she passed out.
One neighbor who lives two doors down heard what happened when she got home,”They said she was literally on the ground. We had kids all out here and they thought she was dead. She was laying in the middle of the ground. They thought she was dead.”
Another neighbor who witnessed the events told police that, and here is the line I mentioned earlier, while Cash lay unconscious on the ground, Gwynn bounced a basketball off her head while he drank a beer.
Trust me when I say I do not find domestic abuse funny. But dammit, out of context, the visual that description puts in my head just cracks me up and I am positive that fact is helping secure my spot in Hell.…Continue Reading
New Haven, CT - Michael Wallace, 40, was arrested Saturday after continuously pounding his wife with a six-pack of beer and a coffee pot.
Police officers were dispatched to the couple’s home after receiving a complaint of domestic violence. Wallace’s common law wife, Chastiny Atkinson, had several visible bruises from the attack.
Atkinson confirmed that Wallace was intoxicated when he began arguing with her over “two dudes that don’t even exist.” He was unsatisfied with the damage caused by the coffee pot he started beating her with so he proceeded to pick up a six-pack of beer and began beating her with that as well.
He then ripped hair from her head and began choking her. Before fleeing the scene, Wallace warned her that if she called the police, he would seek retribution. Police were called back to the scene two hours later after a report that Wallace was trying to enter the home. Wallace was located in his car several blocks away.
His side of the story is a little different than Atkinson’s.…Continue Reading
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. – A man is in jail after a fight with his girlfriend involved him biting one of her kids and punching the other.
Police say a fight broke out between 41-year-old Edward Critten and his girlfriend over the condition of the apartment they were living in. A television was broken during the fight and the two got into a physical altercation.
When the woman’s two boys, ages 9 and 11, ran out to defend her, Critten turned on them as well.
“It was at that time that the suspect bit the 11-year-old’s chest and then punched the 9-year-old in the chest,” said Capt. Corey MacDonald with the Portsmouth Police Department.
One of the boys ran to a neighbor to have them call 911. When police arrived, they found the 11-year-old had fallen down a flight of stairs during the argument and had to be taken to the hospital.
Critten was arrested and charged with second-degree assault, two counts of simple assault and one count of criminal mischief. Not surprisingly, he has a lengthy criminal history that includes charges of possession of controlled substances and possession of a deadly weapon.…Continue Reading
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – An 82-year-old Florida man will find out later this month if he will be serving life in prison after being convicted Monday of beating his girlfriend to death with a flashlight battery.
Back in 2010, Alfred Infosino called 911 and said he had just “killed somebody.” He told the dispatcher that he had beat his girlfriend to death with a flashlight battery and was now drinking ammonia.
When police arrived at his residence, they found 77-year-old Rita Chirel laying naked on the floor of the master bedroom in a pool of blood. Paramedics tried to revive Chirel, but she would die as a result of blunt force injuries and loss of blood.
Police had no record of ever visiting the couple, but neighbors reported that the couple had been arguing lately, Infosino saying he was thinking of moving out and Chirel had dropped him as executor of her estate.
On Monday, Infosino was convicted of second-degree murder and will be back in court later this month where he could be sentenced to life behind bars.…Continue Reading
Daly City, CA - A woman in California has been charged with torture after she allegedly poured boiling water on her sleeping ex-husband and then whacking him with a baseball bat.
Police say 39-year-old Jesusa Ursonal Tatad and her ex-husband lived together until last month when Tatad reportedly became a tad upset after learning her ex had a new girlfriend. Prosecutors say she waited for the man to return home from a late shift, then dumped a pot of boiling water on him as he slept.
When the poor guy jumped up in excrutiating pain and ran to the bathroom, his psycho ex was waiting for him there wielding a baseball bat. After she clubbed him in the head, the man made it out of the home and flagged down someone who called police.
The man was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, suffering from second- and third-degree burns to over 60 percent of his body. Because of his injuries, the man was unable to speak but according to San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, he is expected to survive but ‘he’s in for a long, long recovery.’
Tatad is facing life in prison if convicted on charges of aggravated mayhem, assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence as well as torture.…Continue Reading

Coralville, IA – Lucinda V. Kinder, 32, has been charged with domestic abuse assault without intent causing injury after police say she bit her boyfriend’s penis during a heated argument.

How do you bite a man’s penis to the point of drawing blood without intent to commit injury?!? I am injured by the thought of it alone.
FOND DU LAC, WI — A man was arrested and charged with domestic abuse after getting mad at his girlfriend and assaulting her with a hamburger. Shawn A. Posthuma, 24, told police he went all James Cagney on his woman after she refused to eat the food from McDonald’s he had purchased for her. His girlfriend said Posthuma threw fries at her so she threw some back at him. He retaliated by slamming a hamburger in her face and holding it there. But he wasn’t done. When his girlfriend’s sister tried to intervene, he threw her into a glass patio door. When his girlfriend tried to call police, he threw her to the ground and her cell phone across the room. Not quite finished with his tantrum, he head-butted his girlfriend in the face, causing a cut to her nose. Posthuma admitted he has anger management issues and needed help. He was charged with disorderly conduct, misdemeanor battery, disorderly conduct and felony intimidation of a victim. …Continue Reading
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – Police say that during a domestic dispute with his wife, Tony Brian Knolle, 24, tried to burn a 9-week-old pit bull to death. Police were flagged down by Miacarla Knolle as she was out trying to find help for her puppy named “Red” who was suffering from burns, singe marks, blisters and gashes along his left hip and leg. Red was taken to the animal shelter where he received medical treatment. “It tears me up. I hate to see any animal like this,” Detective Jonathan Perkins said. “With animals and domestic violence, it will start with the animals and then move to the kids and the wife.” Red will remain at the shelter and put up for adoption, eventually chewing off kid’s faces with relative ease. Tony Knolle was arrested and charged with felony animal cruelty but it’s just too bad he pulled this stunt now, and not after December 1st when North Carolina’s Susie’s Law goes into effect. This law was just signed by Gov. Beverly Perdue and ensures tougher penalties in animal abuse cases.…Continue Reading
Des Moines, Iowa- Usually, when you call someone and they don’t answer the phone it means they are probably too busy to talk.
