Woman charged in death of fiancé’s two-year-old daughter
Melinda Muniz has been arrested and charged with the death of Grace Ford, the two-year-old daughter of her fiance, who reportedly broke up with her.
Aside from being the fiancee of the victim's father, Muniz was also the caregiver of the little girl.
Muniz's arrest has generated widespread anger with hundreds expressing their disgust for the suspect online.
Robbie McClung, a Dallas criminal attorney who will be defending for Muniz, urged the public to wait for all the facts before judging Muniz.
The police have also stated that Muniz is not considered guilty until proven otherwise.
Former highschool hoopstar meted with life imprisonment for murder
William Paul Langrum II will be spending the rest of his life in prison for killing Shearl Bennett, 50, in 2011.
Langrum, who used to play for the Lincoln High Tigers, and a companion had attacked and robbed Bennett.
Dallas attorney Richard Franklin, who was appointed by the court to represent Langrum, said it was a difficult case to defend as they had nothing to counter the accusations.
The prosecution had the murder weapon and a witness who identified Langrum as the perpetrator.
Langrum was also previously convicted for assaulting his wife and girlfriend.
Jury deadlock prompts judge to declare mistrial
Murder suspect Alex Roberson will undergo a new trial for the killing of a toddler after Judge Mike Snipes of the State District announced a mistrial.
The mistrial was prompted when two of the 12 jurors made a stance in their belief that Roberson was not guilty of beating to death one-year and eight-month old Trey Jenkins, the son of his girlfriend.
If the jury had not been deadlocked, Roberson would have automatically received a sentence of life imprisonment.
Roberson has been accused of mauling the little boy which resulted to broken ribs. The boy also had damaged liver, adrenal glands and lungs, which caused his death.
During the trial, Dallas criminal defense attorney Bill Cox said that the toddler's mother, Precious Williams, could have been the one to inflict the fatal injuries on her boy.
Shequitta Kelly, who was prosecuting the case, said that Williams may be far from an ideal mother but she could have never killed her own son.

Los Angeles lawyers insist on client's release
Blair Berk and Leonard Levine, defense lawyers in Los Angeles, are arguing for the release of their client, Darren Sharper, who used to play in the National Football League.
Sharper has submitted a not guilty plea to sexually assaulting two women in Los Angeles.
However, Sharper remains on indefinite custody with no bail after prosecutors pointed out that he also has an arrest warrant issued by authorities in Louisiana.
Sharper's lawyers are insisting on his release because no case has been filed yet pertaining to the Louisiana arrest warrant.
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.
Man cleared of theft charges
Kevin Keheley can breathe a sigh of relief after a jury exonerated him of theft.
Keheley was accused of defrauding a man after entering into a contract of developing an application for a smartphone, which he was never able to produce.
The contract was for $17,000 and Keheley was paid up front with $10,000.
Keheley then relocated to Austin but promised to finish the application. This, however, never happened.
Denver criminal lawyer Laurie Schmidt, who defended for Keheley, said that what happened was a business dispute.
Schmidt added that Keheley had no intention of running away from giving back the money that he received as evidenced by emails showing his intention to pay the money back.
Sexually abusing four differently-abled women nets man prison
William Walker was handed a minimum of 24 years and a maximum of 60 years in prison after admitting to rape charges.
Walker submitted a guilty plea to allegations that he raped four women who are disabled in a span of 12 days in 2012.
The judge said Walker is a danger to society and rehabilitating him may not help.
Philadelphia criminal defense lawyer Catherine Berryman said Walker was abused while growing up.
20 years in prison for murder conviction in nightclub shooting
A murder conviction will have Mark Anthony Garcia spending 20 years in prison for the death of Michael Angelo Morales.
Morales was shot to death outside a nightclub in 2008.
Garcia's first murder trial ended in a mistrial but he was not so lucky in the second trial.
Albert Acevedo, a defense attorney in San Antonio, said that his client, Garcia, was not the killer.
Instead he was the one who tried to stop another man, Hector Lozano, from shooting Morales.
Lozano is still awaiting for his own trial.
