Jury convicts man of killing ex-girlfriend

Wade Bradford's defense did not convince the jury as they found him guilty in the shooting death of Natalie Allan.

Bradford and Allan had met when Allan worked in one of Bradford's massage parlors. While they were dating, Allan was also dating Kevin Myles, her massage client.

During the trial, the prosecutors told the court that Bradford had shot Allan when she broke up with him and she and Myles had gone to Bradford's place to get her things.

This was countered by Phoenix defense lawyer Jamie Jackson saying that Bradford did not know that he had shot Allan.

According to Jackson, the gun accidentally went off because Myles had suddenly lunged at Bradford.

The jury, however, did not buy this.

Aside from Allan's death, Bradford is also facing charges for the death of another of his former girlfriend, Eleanor Su.

New trial set for 1989 murder of 4y.o. Christopher

Debra Jean Milke, the mother of Christopher, the four-year-old kid murdered by two men in 1989, will be retried on Sept. 30.

A few decades back, Milke was meted the death penalty after she was found guilty of handing her son to two men who killed the boy in the desert.

Prosecutors had told the court then that Milke made a confession to Det. Armando Saldate of the Phoenix Police. However, the detective had no recording of the confession.

The Federal Appellate court reversed Milke's conviction last March after ruling that the prosecution failed to tell the court of Saldate's several misdemeanours that resulted to dismissed cases.

Houston defense lawyer Michael Kimerer, representing Milke, said his client is still overwhelmed that she was allowed to post a bond for her release.

The prosecutors, however, said that they will again ask for the death penalty in Milke's retrial.

Jury hands man guilty verdict for killing motorist

John Chester Stuart has been found guilty of shooting to death Thomas "Tom" Beasley after an argument on the road in 2008.

The jury did not buy Stuart's excuse that he was only trying to defend himself when Beasley got out of his vehicle to argue with him.

This was Stuart's second trial for the incident. The first one wherein he had represented himself ended in a hung jury.

In this trial, Stuart had hired Phoenix criminal lawyer Rick Poster for his defense.

With Stuart's sentencing slated for October 24, more than 40 years of prison stay looms for him.

Judge denies third trial for man convicted of murder

Nicholas Christopher Ferro was denied a third trial for the death of Marques Butler in 2009.

Ferro's first trial had ended in a hung jury. In his second trial, he was convicted of murder in the second degree last September.

However, he had asked for a third trial with Miami attorney Carlos Gonzalez pointing out several things, the main of which is that the charges should not have been murder in the second degree because of the scant amount of time that Ferro and Butler have known each other before the incident happened.

According to Ferro's defense, a murder in the second degree charge would require that the perpetrator and victim are familiar with each other thus the need for a time requirement on how long they have known each other basing on the murder laws of Florida.

However, the judge said the amount of time is not required.

With Ferro's demand for a third trial denied, a life imprisonment sentence looms for him.

Murder charge dismissed in shooting death of man from Trussville

The murder charge filed against Freddie Earl Patton,53, for the shooting death of his girlfriend's father, Kenneth Millar, 81, has been dismissed upon the request of the Deputy District Attorney.

An order for Patton's release from jail has been signed, however, he may not be off the hook yet as the DA's office has stated that the case will be turned over to the grand jury in Jefferson County.

The prosecution moved for the dismissal after arguing with the defense who wanted to further question the detective about the autopsy report.

Birmingham criminal attorney John Lentine said that a manslaughter charge should have been filed instead of murder because the shooting was an accident.

If Patton gets indicted, he will have to go back to jail.

Cop gets two months for shooting trainee during an exercise

William S. Kern, a Baltimore Police instructor, was handed a 60-day jail stay, for shooting Raymond Gray, a police recruit, while they were doing exercises.

Kern, who has been in service for 19 years, told the court during his trial that he had brought a live gun to the exercises and he had accidentally used it instead of the training weapon.

Gray was hit in the head and was blinded in one eye when Kern fired his gun through the window to show the recruits the danger of lingering near the door, the window or the hallway.

Kern said that he brought his gun to the training for the safety of the recruits because the facility where they were having their exercises is not secure.

Baltimore defense attorney Shaun F. Owens had argued for Kern's release saying that his client's eventual dismissal from the service would already be enough of a punishment.

Kern is on a 60-day suspension while the Baltimore Police conducts an investigation within its ranks.

Gray's family, who expressed dissatisfaction with the sentence, has also filed a civil lawsuit in relation to the incident and is being represented by Baltimore litigator A. Dwight Pettit.

Former prosecutor sentenced to 10 days for wrongful conviction

Ken Anderson, the former District Attorney of Williamson County, was meted with a 10-day jail term after the judge accepted his no-contest plea for the charge of contempt of court.

The charge steamed from the wrongful conviction of Michael Morton who was found guilty for the murder of his wife in 1986 and was sentenced to life imprisonment.

However, in 2011, Morton's conviction was overturned using DNA as proof that he did not kill his wife.

In the light of that development, Anderson, who had prosecuted Morton's case, was scrutinized and was determined to have erred when he withheld evidence which would have been beneficial for Morton's defense.

Aside from the short jail stay, Anderson will also have to give up his license as a lawyer and as part of the plea bargain, he will also be disbarred for five years.

Austin attorney Eric Nichols, however, pointed out that there will be no conviction for Anderson on any criminal charge.

Morton, for his part, said he is more than happy with the result because all he wanted was for Anderson not to practice law anymore to prevent what happened to him from happening to anyone else again.

Anderson was also fined and made to do community service.

Man sentenced to prison in domestic violence conviction

Lashawn Sheldon was meted a sentence of about four years in prison after he was convicted of kidnapping and other domestic crimes.

Springfield defense attorney Dale E. Bass said that his client, Sheldon, committed most of the offences while he and the victim were breaking up.

Court heard that when the victim had decided to end her relationship with Sheldon, he had abducted and threatened her. He had also harassed her in her work place.

After serving his prison term, Sheldon will be put under probation for three years.
