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.
Irish nanny facing murder in death of 1-year-old girl denied bail
Aisling Brady McCarthy, a nanny from Ireland, will have to await her murder trial in jail after she was denied bail.
McCarthy is accused of the death of Remah Sabir, a one-year-old girl who had suffered a head trauma while under her care. She was brought in to the hospital and died two days later.
However, McCarthy may get a reprieve after the judge got frustrated with the prosecutors' delay in handing over medical proof which could prove critical for her defense.
David Meier, a criminal attorney in Boston defending for McCarthy, said that the evidence they were asking for is necessary to the case.
McCarthy's defense said they are not ready to go to trial in April because of the delay.
NSA employee accused in adopted son's death
Brian Patrick O'Callaghan is facing murder charges after it has been alleged that he had beaten his adopted son which resulted to the 3-year-old's death.
O'Callaghan is a former marine and a war veteran who now works for the NSA.
The suspicion against O'Callaghan started when police were called to the hospital where the boy was confined.
The boy was suffering from brain hemorrhage and fractures in the skull, injuries consistent with beating.
O'Callaghan had told police investigators that his wife had gone out of town thus he had been caring for the boy.
While under his care, O'Callaghan said the child had hit his shoulder in the shower after falling backwards. The next day, when he went to check on the boy who was napping, he said he noticed mucus coming out of the boy's nose and when he picked him up, the boy started vomiting so he brought him to the hospital.
Steven McCool, a defense lawyer in Washington representing O'Callaghan, is insisting on his client's innocence.
He said the allegations have no basis and that O'Callaghan is disputing that the child suffered several injuries in the head.
Ex-cab driver agrees to plea deal in murder charges
A plea deal agreement has Broderick Kenyo Smith admitting to manslaughter instead of capital murder in the death of Arlando Maurice Pritchett in 2012.
The plea agreement will have Smith serving just a year in jail for a split sentence of 10 years.
His jail stay will be followed with probation for three years.
Should Smith violate his probation, he could be made to serve the rest of his 10-year sentence.
According to the police, Pritchett had an argument with a cab driver prior to his shooting while Smith admitted that he had been driving a cab during the time of the incident.
Birmingham defense attorney Charles Salvagio said Smith had shot Pritchett because the latter had robbed him.
NFL player's non-cooperation sees theft charges dropped against woman who stole his jewelry
Theft charges against Subhanna Beyah were dropped after her victim, New York Giants' Shaun Rogers, refused to cooperate with the authorities.
Jonathan Meltz, Beyah's lawyer in Miami, could not be contacted to comment on the issue.
Miami prosecutors believed that Beyah did to Rogers what she did to two other men, wherein she drugged them before stealing their valuables.
According to the police, Rogers had met Beyah at the nightclub of the hotel where he was staying.
Together with another couple, they had gone up to his room where he went to sleep while the others were partying. Before he went to sleep, he put his jewelry inside a safe in the room. When he woke up, Beyah was already gone and so was his jewelry worth almost $500,000.
Rogers had told the prosecution that he was not willing to cooperate during the one time he spoke with them.
Despite the failure of the theft charges to prosper, the prosecution instead will go ahead with charging Beyah for violating her probation wherein she is looking at a 20-year prison sentence if convicted.
