angela-binghamFELTON, DE – Police have arrested 51-year-old Angela Bingham after she killed her 3-year-old grandson and lived with the boy’s corpse for over a week.

Police responded to Bingham’s trailer Tuesday morning after she called 911 to report she was going to kill herself and that she’d already killed her grandson, Rilan Everett.

Responding officers found Bingham walking on the road near her home and detained her without incident. Inside her home they would find Everett decomposing on his bed “with blue and decomposing skin and fluids flowing from the facial area.”

Bingham admitted to officers that on Sept 18 she held a washcloth over Everett’s mouth and nose as he lay awake in bed after telling him “it was time to go.” She removed the washcloth once the boy stopped struggling.

She told police that her initial plan was to kill her and Everett, who was living with her after his mother abandoned him to be with a boyfriend, by turning up the gas in the trailer. When that didn’t work she chose to smother Everett.…

Ashley TullSELBYVILLE, DE – Police in Delaware have arrested 30-year-old Ashley Tull  after her 4-year-old girl went to daycare and started passing out bags of heroin to other children.

Workers at Hickory Tree Child Care Center called police Monday morning after they observed some of the kids with small bags of an unknown substance. The substance was later determined to be heroin.

An investigation would reveal a 4-year-old girl found 249 small bags in the backpack her mother, Ashley Tull, had given her to use after her own backpack was ruined by the family pet that night. The girl believed the small bags contained candy and began distributing them to her friends.

Although the teachers at the center were able to confiscate the bags before any of the children opened them, some were taken to the hospital for precautionary measures.

Police interviewed Tull and then took her into custody. She’s currently charged with maintaining a drug property and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child. Tull was released after posting $6,000 secured bond.…

KaronNEWARK, DE – Two boys, ages 13 and 14, have been arrested in connection to videotaped attacks on a mentally challenged man.

The videos were posted online and showed 26-year-old Karon being beaten by several teenagers while other teenagers stood around and watched. The teens can be seen repeatedly punching Karon in the face and body slamming him.

Karon’s mother says he suffers from Williams Syndrome and has the mental capacity of a second grader. “He doesn’t do anything to anyone but be kind,” she said.

The cool thing about this story, aside from the teens getting busted, is how they got busted. A 16-year-old girl saw the videos and wanted to do something about it.

Angeliz Marrero re-posted the attacks Saturday using #TheBullyProject. Within 24 hours, she had 18,000 new Instagram followers. “It spread so fast and I’m just so grateful for everybody that’s helping me out because if it weren’t for everybody helping, supporting and everything, this wouldn’t even go viral and that man really deserves justice,” said Angeliz.…

Melissa KingDelaware – Miss Delaware Teen USA, Melissa King, has resigned her crown after an online porn video surfaced that she supposedly stars in.

King is denying the woman in the video is her. “Absolutely not,” she said. “It is not.” When asked about the porn site’s claim otherwise, she said, “There are comments saying this, however, it’s not comments that are true.”

That being said, she has resigned her crown. “I would like to confirm to you that the Miss Delaware Teen USA pageant has received a resignation letter from Miss King’s attorney,” pageant spokeswoman Dara Busch.

So far her attorney, J. Gregory Hannigan, has made no comments regarding his client, the video or her resignation.

I’ve seen the video and it’s not that good. But the woman in it definitely looks and sounds just like Melissa King. Adding even more evidence to the woman in the video being Melissa King, are some of the things she says just before her mouth is stuffed with penis.

For example, a man interviewing the woman asks when she turned 18, to which she answers “about three months ago.…

Milford, DE – Sandra Hardy, a 47-year-old mother of five, is out on $74,000 bond today after allegedly sharing pornographic material with two boys, aged 13 and 11, on numerous occasions, and attempting to coerce the 13-year-old into having sex with her.

She is charged with six counts of providing obscene material to a person under 18, three counts of sexual harassment, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, two counts of tampering with physical evidence and one count of first-degree indecent exposure, police said.   Personally, I’d tack on “attempting to turn a male minor totally gay” and possibly “cruel and unusual punishment,” but I’m a realist.

Between 2009 and 2011, Hardy is believed to have watched adult pornographic movies with the boys, shown them her sex toys, and made overt sexual overtures to the 13-year-old, asking him to have sex with her and showing him lewd pictures of herself (as if there could be any other kind) taken with her cell phone which, miraculously, did not spontaneously combust in her hand.…

NEW CASTLE, Del. — A drunk mom has been arrested for driving drunk and reckless endangerment after her drunk ass left her 4-year-old daughter in a gas station’s portable bathroom.

Shortly after 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, police say 28-year-old Jennifer Holmwood pulled into the Valero Gas Station to get gas. While there, she took her daughter to a portable bathroom at the gas station, but returned to her vehicle and drove off without her.

Luckily a truck driver noticed the little girl alone and took her inside the store to try and find her parents. Meanwhile, a motorist had stopped to help Holmwood whose car had broke down. The driver called police after Holmwood informed them that she could not find her daughter and she needed help.

Police were able to connect the dots and Holmwood was arrested, charged with reckless endangering and her fifth DUI charge. Her daughter was not injured and turned over to family members who must be real proud of Jennifer.…

Port Penn, DE — Joshua Jones was taken into custody on Thursday, charged with first-degree rape and unlawful sexual contact, after police say his girlfriend found evidence he had been sexually assaulting her 8-year-old daughter.

The 28-year-old woman called police on Wednesday to report that she had discovered two videos on a desktop computer that showed her young daughter performing oral sex on Jones. When confronted with the evidence, Jones ran from the home.

Taken into custody without incident, Jones was reportedly transported to the Wilmington Hospital for an evaluation before being shackled and caged. At this point, there is no explanation for the medical evaluation.

Joshua Jones, 23, remains behind bars at the Howard Young Correctional Institute on $55,000 secured bail.…

Dover, Delaware — Joseph Tighe, 62, was arrested yesterday for allegedly carrying on a relationship with a 16-year-old high school student. The Dover Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Unit arrested Tighe for eight counts of rape in the fourth degree and other charges after an investigation revealed that Tighe had an ongoing relationship with a Dover High School student.

Tighe and the student had allegedly been meeting at hotels in the area. Tighe is a music instructor at the high school the girl attends. He teaches string instruments at a middle school as well and has been teaching at the schools for about a year and a half. He is now on paid suspension from the district. An unpaid suspension is not an option according to Tighe’s contract, Superintendent Dr. Michael Thomas said. The Dover Police Department called Thomas late Wednesday afternoon regarding impending charges against Tighe. Thomas said he can’t divulge the details of the district’s internal investigation now in effect.

Tighe is currently in James T. Vaughn Correctional under a $45,500 secured bond.…

NEWARK, Del. – According to 7-year-old Zach Montero, a 14-year-old neighborhood boy threatened to damage his bicycle if he did not enter a nearby portable toilet. The boy did as he was instructed and once inside, the 14-year-old allegedly tipped over the toilet so that it landed on its door trapping Zach inside while wasted poured over him. Zach’s friends helped lift the toilet up so that he could get out, and the teen reportedly walked away laughing. Zach’s father was not amused when is son came home covered in human waste and sporting a knee injury so he called police on the teenager. “He’s just a boy in the neighborhood that’s constantly bullying other kids. Kids are afraid to say anything to anybody about it because of his older brother,” said Zach’s father, Dave. Zach’s older brother echoed his father stating that the 14-year-old is known to bully younger kids in the area, even hitting them in the groin for kicks. The older brother countered saying that his brother is not the bully he is being made out to be and in fact, he says that no one made Zach get into the toilet as he and his friends were already inside it.…

Babysitter, 19, Accused Of Raping 11-Year-Old Boy

September 17, 2010 at 8:48 am by  

Felton, DE – Cassandra Epperson, 19, has been arrested on charges of child rape after the mother of an 11-year-old boy accused her of raping the child while she was babysitting late last month.

At some point between 8:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m., Epperson allegedly followed the young boy into the bathroom, pulled down her pants and underwear and demanded the child do the same.

Delaware —  Nicole Hoffman, 18, was driving in excess of 90 mph with a blood alcohol limit almost twice the legal limit while texting when she lost control of her car. Her vehicle left the road and flipped, ejecting 20-year-old Shawn Zimmerman who died from head injuries. On Friday, Judge Jan R. Jurden sentenced Hoffman to nine years in prison for her trifecta of driving idiocy, more than four times the minimum mandatory and three years more than what prosecutors were even asking. The judge went on to ban her from social media websites during her four years of probation and once she is released, to speak at every public high school in the state about the dangers of drinking and driving and texting while driving. The reason for the harsh sentence stems from the fact that Hoffman’s Myspace page was littered with pictures of her drinking underage, and the fact that on the weekend before she was going to plead guilty to manslaughter, she was arrested for underage drinking and disorderly conduct and a second time for assault.…
