Theophilous Washington, 20, was with his pregnant girlfriend Friday morning when he suggested she take some water from his fridge as she was leaving.
When she returned to her on-campus room and drank from the water bottle, she felt a burning sensation in her throat, vomited, and then called 911. Police eventually interviewed her and Washington, who admitted he’d put bleach in the water his girlfriend drank.
He explained that he did not want his girlfriend to have the baby, and hoped to kill it by having his girlfriend drink bleach.
In response to his surprise abortion attempt, Washington was charged with criminal attempt to commit first-degree murder of an unborn child as well as reckless endangering. He is being held in jail on $1 million bail. Dayum!
“The charges are twisted and the intended result nothing short of horrifying,” said District Attorney Craig Stedman. Washington’s girlfriend and her 2-month-old fetus appeared unharmed, according to the doctor who examined her.…
The incident happened last year after the boy’s mother left him in the care of Kernechel while she went out with friends. The next morning, she found her son sleeping on his bedroom floor with his face beaten, lips swollen and missing three teeth.
The boy told his mother that Kernechel was responsible for his injuries and that he was not nice.
She rushed the boy to the hospital and brought along a bag containing the boy’s teeth. “The teeth were bloody but intact, from the tooth through the top of the root,” authorities said in a statement. A medical examination indicated that his “teeth were pulled out.”
Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman said the teeth were “physically extracted, removed from his mouth, forcefully” and that afterward, Kernechel left the boy “to suffer overnight until the morning when his mother found him and saw what had been done.”
When interviewed, Kernechel first told officers he had no idea how the boy was injured.…

According to reports, 21-year-old Joshua Rose accidentally overdosed while doing drugs at the home where 20-year-old Amanda Wayda and 19-year-old Preston Layfield were present.
Instead of calling 911, Wayda called 22-year-old Tyler Mirabelli and asked him to come over and take Rose to the hospital. So far, so good right?
But while in the car the three came up with a different plan. Driving past the hospital, Wayda allegedly put a plastic bag over Rose’s head before Layfield strangled Rose to death with a set of jumper cables.
It took around four minutes for Rose to finally die, but once he did the trio stopped for gas – but not before putting glasses and a hat on Rose to make him look alive. Afterwards, the three are accused of dumping Rose’s body in the woods near some railroad tracks.…
Hunter Reeser got into an argument with his grandmother, 60-year-old Sandra Orton, because he did not want to go to an unspecified school meeting.
So Reeser grabbed a .22-caliber rifle and shot his grandma in the head as she sat in a car outside of her home.
The teen then called his grandfather to tell him he had found his grandmother wounded in the car, but would later admit to 911 that he was the one who shot her.
“We brought the suspect in for questioning, subsequently he confessed to the crime. He was charged with one count of general homicide, one count of aggravated assault, and one count of a firearms violation,” said Lieutenant Kline.
Since the kid is in Pennsylvania, he will be charged as an adult under the Fisher Bill. His future defense attorney can try to move the charges to juvenile court at a later date, but Erie County prosecutors say they plan to oppose that.…
Bettig was reported missing on Aug 15 after Danelle Geier and George Ishler Jr., both 39, said he and his car had not been seen in three days.
According to court documents, the pair said they believed he had gone to California. Two days later police would find that not to be true when the missing man’s body was found at the bottom of Blackhawk Quarry.
It appeared as if Bettig had died after falling 80 feet off of a cliff. However, during their investigation, police would learn Bettig had been pushed.
Turns out that Bettig had taken Geier and her child into his home because they were homeless. Geier’s sister said the two were in love and that Bettig was planning on proposing in the near future.

Imbody was also taken to the hospital to treat several head wounds and to have some BBs removed from his head and chest, said his father.…
According to reports, Schmidt lives in a home with a man and his four children. Police say she was physically abusive towards one of the children, a 6-year-old girl, and once placed the girl’s hands on a hot stove.
But that’s not all. The girl told police that Schmidt has been abusing her since she was 3-years-old, describing how she was hit with a big spoon, forced to hold full gallon jugs of water, and placing her head underwater in the bathtub on multiple occasions.
The girl said the abuse makes “her body feel sad.”
Investigators say the child never came forward before now because Schmidt threatened to kill her if she ever told anyone about the abuse. The girl has since been placed in a foster home.
Schmidt was arrested and charged with felony aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of children. The charges come as no surprise to the grandmother of one of the other children who lives in the home with Schmidt.…

Police have arrested 61-year-old Ira Task after they say he, and other men, recorded themselves raping a 6-year-old boy.
Task’s arrest was the result of an investigation that started when federal investigators alerted Pennsylvania police that 19-year-old William Byers Augusta, who lives in North Middleton Township, had live-streamed the rape of a 6-year-old boy over a video-conferencing website back in July.
When police searched Augusta’s home, they found a laptop in the teen’s bedroom that contained numerous videos and photographs of child pornography. The investigation then led them to a second North Middleton Township where numerous computers and phones were seized, with one of the phones containing a particularly disturbing video.
In the video, which was taken in April, two adult males could be seen raping the same 6-year-old boy that Augusta had raped during a live-stream. Police say the rape was filmed by Augusta, and was shot in a way as to crop out the faces of the two men.…
NORRISTOWN, PA – A horrific case of child abuse is being reported out of Pennsylvania, where a man has been accused of beating his girlfriend’s 4-year-old autistic son and forcibly pulling out three of the boy’s teeth.
Police were notified in July, when the boy’s mother brought him to police with “severe facial and dental injuries” and handed them a bag that contained three of the boy’s teeth.
“The teeth were bloody but intact, from the tooth through the top of the root,” authorities said in a statement.
According to the woman, she had left her son with her live-in boyfriend, 27-year-old Nicholas Kernechel, while she went out with friends for a couple of hours. The following morning she found her son in his room “asleep on the floor, lying on top of dried blood.”
She found her son was missing three upper teeth, had an extremely swollen upper lip, a bloody upper gum line and bruises all over his face. The boy told his mother that Kernechel was responsible for his injuries and that he was not nice.…
BELLEFONTE, PA – Brandi Weaver-Gates, the 2015 winner of a Miss Pennsylvania offshoot pageant, is facing felony charges after lying about having cancer and raking in thousands of dollars in donations.
Weaver-Gates, 23, has been charged with theft by deception and receiving stolen property after investigators say she took money raised from events on her behalf to help pay for her medical bills as she battled chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
However, the state police investigator said Weaver-Gates never had the disease and called her efforts to make people believe she did “an elaborate scheme.” He’s not joking, either.
On top of having relatives drive her to John Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore and make them wait in the lobby for hours as she went to another part of the hospital to pretend to have treatment, she would also shave her head to appear as a cancer patient.
These relatives may also include her own parents. In one interview she described telling her parents about her diagnosis was one of the most difficult things she’s ever had to do.…
PITTSBURGH, PA – Police have arrested 25-year-old Cesar Mazza after they say he became upset that his ex-girlfriend wouldn’t name their newborn son after him, so he stabbed her to death and fatally beat her 72-year-old grandmother.
On May 6, Mazza took his 3-month-old son from foster care and dropped him off at his mother’s home. When asked why he and the baby were covered in blood, Mazza claimed that the blood was his and the result of the baby’s mother, 19-year-old Tionna Banks, trying to stab him because he forgot to bring her a pack of cigarettes when he picked up their baby.
The next day, police performed a wellness check on Banks after she did not report back to a social service agency by her assigned time. When police entered the residence, they would find Banks dead after suffering 15 stab wounds and some fractured bones. Her grandmother, 72-year-old Valerie Crumpton, was found dead with trauma to her head and body.
Mazza was located in New Jersey after he was arrested on May 15 for missing a trial on charges he beat Banks last November when she was five months pregnant.…
