A federal appeals court on Monday restored the death sentence of a bank robber convicted of killing his best friend, his friend's fiancée and their three children. In a 32-page opinion, a three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a lower court ruling that would have freed Ronald Jeffery Prible Jr . if the state did not retry Prible within six months. The panel ruled Prible, 50, failed to raise issues sufficiently compelling to discredit his conviction and sentence. A Harris County jury condemned Prible to death row in 2002 for killing Esteban "Steve″ Herrera; Herrera's fiancée, Nilda Tirado; Tirado's 7-year-old daughter Rachel Elizabeth Cumpian; Herrera's 7-year-old daughter Valerie; and the couple's 22-month-old daughter Jade Herrera in 1999.

The children died from smoke inhalation from the resulting fire. … [Read more...] about Death sentence restored for bank robber convicted of killing his best friend, his friend’s fiancée and their 3 children

She told the judge, “In writing the lyrics, I drew partly on experiences in my life and, in particular, unrelenting public scrutiny of my personal life, ‘clickbait’ reporting, public manipulation, and other forms of negative personal criticism which I learned I just … [Read more...] about Taylor Swift claims ‘Shake It Off’ lyrics ‘were written entirely’ by her amid copyright lawsuit
A former Nazi guard, now aged 101, who was involved in sending more than 3,500 people to their deaths at a German concentration camp has been sentenced to five years in jail.

The trial took nearly nine months as doctors had said the man, whose full name was not disclosed due to German trial reporting rules, was only partially fit to stand trial, and sessions were limited to two and a half hours a day.
