Andrew WardPHOENIX, AZ — Andrew Ward, the man accused of murdering his little brother to death because he felt like it,  has now been accused of murdering his cellmate.

Last month I reported on 27-year-old Andrew Ward after he was arrested and accused of stabbing his 12-year-old half brother to death for no reason other than he “just felt like killing.”

For the last three weeks, Ward has been in custody at Maricopa County jail while awaiting his trial. His cellmate during this time was 33-year-old Douglas Walker, who was serving a few years for armed robbery.

On Wednesday night, inmates alerted guards that the two men were fighting. When they made their way inside the two men’s cell, officials would find Walker dead after Ward turned his head into a bit of psychotic performance art.

According to officials, Ward used a golf pencil to stab Walker in the eyes, used a playing card to slit Walker’s throat, smeared peanut butter on his head and shoved a plastic bag down Walker’s throat.…

Veronica DiazPhoenix, AZ — A couple of shitstains out in Phoenix were arrested this week for allegedly neglecting and/or refusing to feed their 9-month-old son. Kid tipped the scales at a whoppin’ 7 pounds during a recent medical exam.

On March 19, when the child was seen by medical staff, his father, 32-year-old Ryan Morris, reportedly told police he had not been fed since the beginning of March.

Mom, 27-year-old Veronica Diaz, reportedly told police she ran out of formula on March 12, and had been giving the child one bottle of water during the day and a little bit of regular milk before bed up until the 19th.

When asked why she didn’t feed the child, Diaz first responded with “I don’t know.” At which point I would have lunged across the table and pummeled her stupid face. She then claimed that she had no money. And, dammit, she had four other kids that had to be fed and taken care of, so she just kinda “gave up” on the littlest one.…

Andrew WardPHOENIX, AZ — Police arrested 27-year-old Andrew Ward after he admitted he’d stabbed his 12-year-old half-brother to death in the family’s home.

On Wednesday morning, Andrew Ward called 911 from a convenience store claiming he had stabbed someone without going into any further details. When police arrived and detained Andrew, he had blood on his hands and clothes, had a knife in his pocket, and appeared out of it.

He told police the person he stabbed could be found in his family’s home nearby. When police entered the home, they found Andrew’s younger brother, 12-year-old Austin Tapia, dead from multiple stab wounds.

At about this time, the mother arrived home with her two teenage daughters and was informed that her older son had killed Austin. She told police they were returning from dinner and that Austin had opted not to go with them. She said as they were leaving, they saw Andrew returning home on foot.

Family members said Andrew has a history of violence and substance abuse, but police said Ward told them nothing happened between him and Austin that led to him stabbing the boy as he played video games.…

Travis SchellingPhoenix, AZ — A 35-year-old man is facing numerous charges after allegedly assaulting his girlfriend over a misunderstanding of how Facebook works.

According to police, Travis Schelling thought other men were sending direct messages to his girlfriend on Facebook anytime one of her friend’s posts popped up on her feed. And every time he read one of those messages, he hit her. In addition to the hitting, police say, Schelling also violently shook the woman by her hair, ripping it out in clumps. It is believed that Schelling also sexually assaulted her.

Police say he held his girlfriend captive from about 11:30 Friday night to 3:00 Saturday morning, threatening to kill her, her family and her friends if she dared alert authorities. The woman finally convinced Schelling that she wasn’t going to tell, and he released her at about noon on Saturday.

Police said the victim had bruising on her face, arms, legs and a cut and swollen lip when she reported the incident.

Schelling has been booked on charges of kidnapping, sexual abuse, aggravated assault, threatening and intimidation.…

Joseph Andrew DekenippFlorence, AZ — An inmate at the Pinal County Adult Detention Center apparently escaped his cage Friday in order to spend Valentine’s day with his woman. *swoons*

Joseph Andrew Dekenipp, 40, was taken into custody at their rendezvous spot, the Gallopin’ Goose Saloon & Grill, about three hours after his escape. Witnesses say the police arrived at the bar just minutes after the girlfriend did.

Dekenipp didn’t just wander off the property, either — police say he had to scale a 12-foot fence, shimmy through some razor wire, and scale yet another wire-topped fence in order to leave the property. And what, exactly, did you do for your significant other for VDay? He was treated for his injuries prior to being returned to the facility.

Police are now trying to figure out if Dekenipp was assisted by any other inmates.

Dekenipp was initially jailed on suspicion of vehicle theft, trafficking in stolen property, unlawful flight, theft and driving on a suspended license on January 10 — bond was set at $5,000.…

Ashley Marie PrenovostGlendale, AZ — A 24-year-old woman is facing several charges after allegedly pitching a fit and breaking stuff, and slightly injuring her infant, after her boyfriend refused to give her the D.

This may come as a surprise to none of you, but this isn’t the first time we’ve covered such a story. We got a beatin‘, a fish-hookin‘ and a dick bitin‘… just to name a few. Will you men never learn?

Anyway, police were called to the couple’s home Monday and found Ashley Marie Prenovost nekkid, bloody and drunk. It  is alleged that after the boyfriend refused coitus, Prenovost went on a rampage. Police say she punched a couple of holes in the bedroom wall and smashed a picture frame, causing injuries to both of her hands.

Then, for whatever reason, Prenovost picked up the four-month-old child she shares with her boyfriend, and began carrying her around the house, yelling and screaming and bleeding all over the place. At some point during the alleged tirade, the child’s head met a dresser.…

Keri GonzalezManara, AZ — A 34-year-old woman was left with a broken ankle and a criminal record after allegedly jumping from the second-floor window of a 15-year-old boy after his mother caught her nekkid ass in his bedroom.

At about 2:00 a.m. on January 21, the boy’s mother heard some sort of knocking sound coming from his bedroom. When she attempted to investigate, she found the door was locked. The kid must have realized mom wasn’t leaving anytime soon and eventually allowed her into the bedroom. It was then, police say, that she spotted a naked female crouching on the floor near her son’s bed.

Mom demanded the woman leave the premises, and after the woman collected her clothing, she complied…. right out the window. After what I assume was a hard landing, the woman limped off down the street.

About 30 minutes later, the woman returned to the home and informed the boy’s mother that she had broken her ankle. Mom then realized the woman that had shagged her son was a family acquaintance … an acquaintance she had previously warned to stay away from her son after she was caught flirting with him.…

Rose VogelCHANDLER, AZ – Police have charged 65-year-old Rose Mary Vogel with attempted murder after they say she put shit in her husband’s IV while he was recovering from heart surgery.

Vogel was with her husband in his recovery room at Chandler Regional Medical Center when two nurses walked in and found Vogel handling her husband’s IV. The nurses said they saw Vogel touching the IV pump when the pump’s alarm went off, and said she told told them the line needed to be flushed.

One of the nurses noticed something brown in the line and removed it from the man’s arm. She went for help when she noticed the line smelled like shit. When the nurse returned to the room, she said Vogel was trying to empty the IV bag into the trash, but the nurse was able to get it away from her.

Tests would later show that the brown substance was fecal matter. Vogel was originally looking at an aggravated assault charge until investigators searched her purse and found two syringes containing fluid, and a third syringe with what appeared to be traces of feces.…

Jessica BurlewGLENDALE, AZ – Police have accused 16-year-old Jessica Burlew of killing her 43-year-old boyfriend during some kinky foreplay that included strangulation.

According to Burlew, she and Jason Ash liked to engage in strangulation and cutting during sex, but she took things a little too far last Saturday. Everything was going ok until she wrapped some electrical wire around Ash’s neck and choked him for a tad too long, killing the guy.

At first Burlew though Ash had simply passed out, so she tried to get him to wake up by cutting him with a razor. When that didn’t work, she did the next best thing and used the razor to start cutting herself. Eventually Burlew realized that also wasn’t working, and called her mother to inform her Ash was dead.

When her mother arrived at the apartment, she found Ash dead on the bed with a cord around his neck. He was fully clothed but his pants were unbuttoned. Able to handle stressful situations better than her daughter, she called 911 and tried performing CPR instead of conducting an interpretive dance and punching Ash in the crotch.…

Gary SherrillPHOENIX, AZ – A man has admitted to hacking up his 13-year-old son with an ax because he thought the boy was a demon sent from Hell to eat him.

Police were called to 51-year-old Gary Sherrill’s home after his ex-wife called to report Sherrill had not returned their son to her. The couple shared custody of the boy and Sherrill was supposed to bring him back to her home on New Year’s Eve.

When police arrived at his home, Sherrill initially told them his son was not home. He eventually allowed the officers into his home to check for themselves, and the officers found David dead inside. The boy had suffered stab wounds and lacerations to several parts of his body.

When asked what the hell happened to his kid, Sherrill told them he killed the poor kid with an ax. But it was self defense, Sherrill explained. His son was actually a demon and was going to eat him.

Police arrested Sherrill and charged him with first-degree murder. Some of Sherrill’s neighbors said they’d seen the couple arguing in the past, and that Sherrill had been acting strange lately.

14-Year-Old Arizona Girl Found In Dumpster

Alex Anthony MadridMesa, AZ  — A suspect has been arrested in connection with the rape and strangulation of 14-year-old Claudia Ann Lucero whose body was found in a garbage dumpster last Friday.

It was reported that she was strangled with a form of ligature although further details have not been given.

The girl was last seen at home the day before in the early morning hours but was not in attendance at Westwood High School after leaving home for school. Her mother proceeded to file a missing-persons report the same evening.

Lucero’s body was found early the next day at the Sun Garden Apartments, a few miles from her home, by professional dumpster divers searching the trash container for recyclables. Upon the recovery of the girl’s remains, Lucero’s mother immediately had a suspect in mind.

The piece of shit in custody is 31-year-old Alex Anthony Madrid. Madrid is charged with first-degree murder, kidnapping, sexual conduct with a minor, molestation of a child, sexual abuse, child abuse, abandonment/concealment of a dead body and tampering with physical evidence, according to Mesa police.…

McDsMesa, AZ — All kinds of people were dialing 911 from a Mesa McDonald’s after one couple noticed their hash browns were missing from their order earlier this week. What? Hash browns are serious business, people!

Michael and Nova Smith were feeling a little ripped off the other morning when they realized their orders, a Number 2 and a Number 4, were missing both one extremely important item —  the hash browns.

“It’s a meal,” Nova said in an interview with ABC15. “Just like you should get fries with your hamburger, we should have got our hash browns with our breakfast sandwiches.”

Nova claims that after confronting a store manager, and after being denied a refund or even an order of hash browns, she got a little pissy and threw her bag of breakfast sandwiches at ’em.

“And that was out of frustration which I probably shouldn’t have done, but I did. Fighting over $2 of hash browns is ridiculous. It is ridiculous to have to fight that hard just to get customer service.”

Michael called 911 and headed back behind the counter to have his own talk with management.…
