Three boys — ages 13, 15 and 16 — accused of killing a man during a robbery two weeks ago will remain in custody at least until Sept. 11, when a judge will decide whether reasonable grounds exist to hold them further on second-degree murder counts. If he finds such grounds, which is formally called probable cause, East Baton Rouge Parish Juvenile Court Judge Adam Haney said he’ll then determine whether any of them are entitled to bail. The suspects were brought into Haney’s courtroom for separate appearances Friday and the judge explained to each the serious nature of the charge. The two older boys could be sentenced to life in prison if tried as adults and found guilty of second-degree murder in the slaying of Spencer Hebert, 32, outside a North Foster Drive strip mall. Saturday homicide victim was fixture in his neighborhood, which has been plagued by gun violence in recent years Spencer Hebert spent most of his days at the Foster Car Wash just around the … [Read more...] about Juveniles arrested in seafood restaurant parking lot killing appear in EBR Juvenile Court

Britain's youngest lottery millionaire is hoping money can buy her love – and wants to pay the right man £60,000 a year to date her. Euromillions winner Jane Park, 23, is making the cash offer after a string of failed relationships left her alone with her fortune. She is launching a website where blokes can apply to be her boyfriend for a £60,000 annual “allowance” so they can wine and dine her. A source told how she will film the interview process for a documentary, set to air next year. The source said: “Jane is amazing and has so much to give but she has found herself alone again as since she won, she’s had terrible luck. “She’s never sure whether she is being loved for herself or for her bank balance. So she would rather have the arrangement out in the open. Jane has a tendency to be insecure sometimes and worries about people’s motives. She is willing to pay the right price for someone loyal.” She has splashed out on cars, holidays and plastic surgery ( Image: … [Read more...] about Youngest Euromillions winner Jane Park wants to pay man £60,000 a year to date her
An early morning Christmas Day car bomb exploded in downtown Nashville on Friday, in what police believe was a deliberate attack. A large blast was reported at 6.30am local time in a commercial district of the Tennessee capital, which had been packed with Christmas shoppers the day before. Three people were injured in the blast, though none critically. Authorities said it was uncertain whether anyone was inside the recreational vehicle when it exploded, but police reported hours later that investigators had found possible human remains near the site. In a dramatic sequence of events that shattered the early morning peace, police were in the area responding to a call of shots fired. They found no immediate signs of a shooting, but officers then noticed a suspicious vehicle and called for a bomb disposal unit. Police said the car, a motorhome, parked outside an AT&T phone facility was playing a recording saying that the vehicle would explode in 15 minutes. Officers then … [Read more...] about Three injured in ‘intentional’ Nashville car bombing on Christmas morning
BLOCKED driveways can be a common cause of neighbour disputes but what can you do to stop it? Here are your rights and when you need to complain to the police or your local council if your neighbour keeps blocking your driveway. It can be frustrating when someone blocks your driveway, especially if it is a neighbour doing it regularly. Neighbours have been known to fall out on a regular basis over driveway issues. But while The Highway Code has plenty of tough rules and fines for where and how you park on public roads, the rules and laws are a little blurry about blocking private driveways. In some cases it may be a civil matter that the police may avoid and tell you to contact the council. There may be some situations where your driveway can be blocked, such as if there is a designated space outside your property and a raised kerb. Guidance from comparison website Confused.com said: "Strictly speaking, it’s not always technically illegal to park in front of a … [Read more...] about My neighbour keeps blocking up my driveway and I need ambulance access – what can I do to stop it?

The Democratic and Republican congressional baseball teams proceeded with their annual game to benefit charity Thursday night under the lights at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., only 36 hours after a shooter unleashed gunfire at a GOP team practice. The Democrats won the game, 11-2. Democratic Rep. Mike Doyle of Pennsylvania, his team's manager, accepted the trophy, then gave it to his GOP counterpart, Rep. Joe Barton of Texas, to put in Scalise's office on behalf of the Democrats. After accepting it gracefully, Barton cracked, "Next year we won't be so nice." The Congressional Baseball Game for Charity -- usually a low-key event that draws about 10,000 people -- had sold more than 20,000 tickets and raised more than $1 million for charity as of Thursday afternoon, according to organizers. That's about twice much as the event raised last year. The stadium projected a rare sense of unity in Washington, as members of both parties rallied together after the shocking shooting … [Read more...] about Congressional Baseball Game carries on, one day after shooting
Two boys ages 15 and 16 will be tried as adults in the Aug. 11 killing of a man at a North Foster Drive car wash during what prosecutors called Tuesday a botched deal for marijuana. A 13-year-old co-defendant will remain in juvenile court. East Baton Rouge Juvenile Court Judge Adam Haney found reasonable evidence to proceed with second-degree murder cases against all three juveniles in the shooting death of Spencer Hebert, 32. Because of their age and the alleged crime, the two older boys, 15-year-old Gregory Howard IV and 16-year-old Tayan Jackson, will be moved into the 19th Judicial District Court, where penalties can be more severe. Haney set the 13-year-old's bail at $100,000. In the hearing Tuesday, Haney found probable cause that each of the three boys committed the offense based on store surveillance video showing the three boys walking to the location of the shooting, then running away, as well as statements two of the boys made to police. The pair admitted they had a … [Read more...] about Prosecutors say drug deal led 3 boys to kill; 2 of them will face charges in adult court
Coronation Street’s Chesney Brown (Sam Aston) struggled after his young son Joseph (William Flanagan) went missing, but it seems he’s about to wave goodbye to the cobbles for good in upcoming scenes. The youngster ran away from home earlier this month leaving his family in turmoil. It came after Joseph believed he would get more attention from his father Chesney who’s been busy working to provide for his five children. However, despite recent episodes confirming Joseph’s return , it seems there could be more anguish in store for Chesney after new photos show him and his son at Manchester Airport. In photos obtained by the Daily Star , an emotional looking Chesney is seen hugging Joseph as his grandmother Linda (Jacqueline Leonard) stands by with suitcases in tow. Linda presumably is looking to take her grandson away to Portugal, where she now resides. A source told the publication: ‘These snaps suggest all is not well. It looks like Joseph could be heading … [Read more...] about Coronation Street spoilers: Katy Armstrong’s mum Linda in emotional return for grandson Joseph Brown

Just 15 months after his stepfather was fatally shot, a Baton Rouge teen was gunned down in the same apartment complex off Swan Avenue, bordered by Southern University. Jaquincy Ross, 18, was killed Saturday near his family's apartment, just yards from where his stepfather, Quinton "JR" Johnson, was killed in June 2017 in the complex's parking lot. Both were pronounced dead at the scene, police said. Neither killing has been solved and police are not indicating if the slayings are related. "His little brother lost his daddy. In a year, now his brother's gone," Ross's mother, Lakisha Ross, said Tuesday. Still in shock, she said she is most concerned about her 3-year-old son, who will no longer have his older brother or father, both who were involved in his life. While Ross said she still doesn't know exactly what happened in either shooting, she believes the the two killings are just a terrible coincidence, involving different circumstances at the same location. 3 … [Read more...] about 15 months after his stepdad’s slaying, 18-year-old gunned down in same apartment complex off Swan Avenue
