A woman in North Dakota has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, for the gruesome murder of her 8 month pregnant neighbour last August. 38-year-old Brooke Crews pleaded guilty to murder, conspiracy to commit kidnapping and lying to police officers. Crews did not plead guilty as part of a deal but hoped that her admission would help her sentencing. Prosecutors said that Crews cut the baby out of heavily pregnant 22-year-old, Savanna Greywind, while the expectant mother lost and regained consciousness. Authorities said she bled to death. Her disappearance sparked huge searches until her body was discovered wrapped in plastic in a river. Crew's boyfriend, William Hoehn has pleaded not guilty and is set to face trial in March.

A London jury found Thomas Mair guilty of murdering pro-Europe MP Jo Cox after less than two hours of deliberations on Wednesday. Mair, a 53-year-old far-right extremist, has been sentenced to life without parole in what the judge deemed a "politically motivated" attack. "Because she was a member of parliament your crime has an additional dimension that calls for particular punishment," Judge Alan Wilkie told Mair. The defendant showed no emotion when the sentence was read out. He pleaded not guilty, but refused to present any evidence in his defense. The judge also denied Mair's request to speak following the verdict, saying: "You are no patriot. By your actions you have betrayed the quintessence of our country: its adherence to a parliamentary democracy." The court earlier heard that Mair shouted "Britain first" before firing three shots at Cox with a sawn-off .22 rifle and stabbing her 15 times. The murder came one week before Britain's referendum on its European Union … [Read more...] about Far-right extremist guilty of murdering British politician Jo Cox ahead of Brexit vote
