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.
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.
Philadelphia Church official granted bail after his conviction was reversed
After 18 months in prison, Monsignor William Lynn, may be released when he was granted bail following the reversal of his conviction.
Lynn, who served as a secretary for clergy at the Philadelphia archdiocese, will have to give up his passport. He will also be made to wear an electronic device for monitoring.
The Roman Catholic official was sentenced to between three to six years after he was convicted for endangering an abuse victim of a priest.
However, appeal judges reversed Lynn's conviction because the child-endangerment law which he was accused of violating did not apply to him.
Following the reversal, Lynn's defense lawyers asked for his release which the prosecution opposed during the bail hearing claiming that the priest is a flight risk.
However, Philadelphia defense attorney Thomas Bergstrom said that Lynn would never run away from conviction.
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.
