Ex-Boston College student linked to boyfriend’s suicide to be arraigned Friday, report says

Inyoung You, a 21-year-old former Boston College student accused of encouraging her boyfriend to kill himself, is scheduled to appear in court Friday.

You had returned to her native South Korea but is due in a Suffolk County courtroom to face charges of involuntary manslaughter in the death of 22-year-old Alexander Urtula, FOX 25 of Boston reported.

The woman was in South Korea when she was indicted in October. She and Urtula had dated for 18 months before Urtula, a New Jersey resident, jumped to his death from the top of a parking garage May 20, the day of his college graduation.

Earlier this week a public relations firm working on behalf of You released text messages suggesting she tried to intervene before Urtula died, FOX 25 reported.

After the announcement of her upcoming arraignment, David Guarino, a spokesman for the Urtula family released a statement that read in part:

“Since losing Alexander in May, the Urtula family and everyone who loved Alex has been devastated by his loss. Not a minute of any day goes by without those who loved Alex grieving and continually feeling the sharp pain of his passing all over again. memory by allowing his family and friends the privacy they need during this difficult time.”

The couple exchanged some 75,000 texts in the weeks before Urtula’s death, MassLive.com reported. Some of those from You said “go die” and that his loved ones would be better off without him, Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins told the news outlet.

A backyard gathering of football fans turned into a bloodbath after gunfire broke out in Fresno, Calif., on Sunday night.

“Several” people were reported dead and multiple others were wounded, authorities told Fresno’s FOX 26.

A Twitter message from reporter Marie Edinger later said four people were dead and six were wounded.

4 PHILADELPHIA SHOOTINGS IN 4 HOURS LEAVE AT LEAST 2 DEAD, REPORTS SAY

“Officers arrived on scene. … What we found were several individuals deceased in the backyard,” Lt. Bill Dooley of the Fresno Police department told the Fresno Bee. “We do have multiple shooting victims. We’re not releasing the total number yet.”

“What we do know is that this was a gathering, a family and friend gathering in the backyard,” Dooley said. “Everyone was watching football this evening when unknown suspects approached the residence, snuck into the backyard and opened fire.”

Russian troops take over abandoned US airbase in northern Syria: report

Russian troops took over the Kobani airfield in northern Syria last week, one day after U.S. troops moved out, according to a report.

Russian state media showed the Russian flag flying over what had been the center for U.S. operations against ISIS in the region, CBS News reported Saturday.

CAR BOMB ROCKS SYRIAN TOWN HELD BY TURKEY, MORE THAN A DOZEN KILLED

Other images showed Russian military helicopters landing on a runway and Russian troops deploying around the base, the report said.

The airbase is located along Syria’s northern border with Turkey.

The border region has been hit by several explosions that have killed and wounded scores of people over the past month, since Turkey began a military operation against Kurdish fighters in the wake of President Trump‘s decision to withdraw American troops from the area.

On Saturday, a car bomb exploded in al-Bab, a town in Aleppo province that is controlled by Turkey-backed opposition fighters. The blast killed at least 18 people and wounding several others, Syrian opposition activists and Turkey’s Defense Ministry said.

Last Wednesday, Russian officials said they had opened a helicopter base in Qamishli, about 200 miles east of Kobani, also along the border with Turkey, CBS reported.

Two days earlier, Qamishli was the site of three bomb explosions that killed five people and wounded 26, according to Reuters.

Security forces in the largely Kurdish-controlled city described the bombings as a “terrorist operation,” the report said.

New York gas explosion defendants convicted; blast destroyed ‘Sopranos’ star’s apartment

Maybe their papas never told them about right and wrong.

All three defendants were found guilty of manslaughter, assault and other charges Friday in connection with a gas explosion in New York City that caused the collapse of three buildings — including one where Drea de Matteo, a star of “The Sopranos,” lived.

The March 2015 blast in the East Village section of Manhattan killed two people and resulted from an illegally rigged gas line, authorities said.

“Unbeknownst to the people who were walking down the street, driving down the street, there was a virtual bomb lurking under the East Village,” Assistant District Attorney Randolph Clarke said in his opening statement, according to WABC-TV in New York.

An employee and a customer of a sushi restaurant in one of the buildings were both killed.

A few days after the tragedy, de Matteo, who played Adriana La Cerva on the hit TV show that ran 1999-2207, told the New York Post she was in Los Angeles at the time when a friend called to tell her what happened.

“She said, ‘Turn on the TV! Your building’s on fire!” de Matteo told the Post. “I said, ‘You’re out of your freaking mind.’ Then [my children and I] watched our house fall to the ground on television.”

The three men convicted were a building owner, plumber and contractor. They are scheduled to be sentenced in January.

Gary Danielson of CBS slammed for comments – and chuckles — after sideline photographer injured

Gary Danielson of CBS Sports spent nearly two decades playing college and pro football – so he’s well aware of the potential consequences of taking a brutal hit on the gridiron.

But Danielson startled and angered many viewers Saturday with his reactions after a photographer got slammed to the turf on the sidelines of the GeorgiaAuburn game, for which Danielson was providing commentary.

PHOTOGRAPHER HOSPITALIZED AFTER TAKING BRUTAL HIT DURING GEORGIA-AUBURN GAME

It happened during the second quarter, with Georgia leading 7-0 in the game, played at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Ala.

After Georgia running back Brian Herrien ran out of bounds on a play, chased by Auburn linebacker K.J. Britt, Herrien accidentally knocked over the photographer, later identified as Chamberlain Smith from the University of Georgia, who immediately fell over and lost consciousness.

While play was stopped as medical staff and others assisted the woman, Danielson was heard chuckling at the play, and seeming more concerned about the players than the injured woman.

“Britt gets up, he’s fine. Herrien’s fine,” Danielson says at one point.

“The person Herrien ran into is not,” his broadcast partner Brad Nessler points out.

“Heh, heh, is not,” Danielson adds, chuckling.

Later, Danielson, 68, who played college ball at Purdue and later played in the NFL for the Detroit Lions and Cleveland Browns, speculates the woman may have been snapping photos at the time and unaware Herrien was headed toward her. Some of social media commented that the remark seemed inappropriate, as if Danielson were blaming the woman.

Generally, social media posts suggested most viewers saw no humor in the situation — with some remarking that even Nessler seemed annoyed at Danielson’s comments.

CBS Sports even tweeted “whoops” when the Auburn bench fell over, sending some players falling over backward.

Later, Jamie Erdahl Buckman of CBS Sports posted “good news” on Twitter, that photgrapher Smith was expected to be released from the hospital later in the evening.

Katie Hill paid $5G bonus to alleged male lover, used ‘influence’ to get jobs for husband: reports

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6097451376001_6097449472001-vs Katie Hill paid $5G bonus to alleged male lover, used ‘influence’ to get jobs for husband: reports fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives fox news fnc/politics fnc e7e9eac4-e3bf-57ee-8d4a-dfaf98e9b4ae Dom Calicchio article

U.S. Rep. Katie Hill, the California Democrat embroiled in a legal battle over the publication of nude photos, and facing a House ethics probe over an alleged affair with a male aide, paid a $5,100 “election bonus” to the aide in April, according to reports.

In addition, Hill used her “influence” to help her husband get a series of jobs at the nonprofit agency where she worked prior to being elected, according to court documents.

And Federal Election Commission records show that Hill – an openly bisexual 32-year-old married woman now facing a divorce — was paying consulting fees up until last month to a 24-year-old female campaign staffer with whom Hill has admitted having an “inappropriate” relationship, the Washington Examiner reported.

REP. KATIE HILL FIGHTS BACK AMID CLAIMS SHE WAS INVOLVED IN ROMANTIC ‘THROUPLE’ WITH STAFFER

The female staffer, identified as Morgan Desjardins, is the clothed woman seen having her hair brushed by a naked Hill in one of the photos recently posted online by the DailyMail. Hill, Desjardins and Hill’s now-estranged husband, Kenny Heslep, reportedly engaged in a “throupling” relationship that ended over the summer, the New York Post reported.

Hill admitted earlier this month that her relationship with Desjardins was “inappropriate.”

But it was reportedly the alleged relationship with the male aide, identified as Graham Kelly, that last week sparked a House Ethics Committee investigation of Hill because of House rules against sexual relationships with subordinates. The congresswoman has denied having a relationship with Kelly.

The allegation of a Hill-Kelly relationship was made in a now-deleted Facebook post by Heslep, RedState reported, and is said to be the prime reason for Heslep’s decision to seek a divorce from Hill, according to reports.

In a recent letter to her constituents, however, Hill contended that Heslep was “an abusive husband who seems determined to try to humiliate me.”

According to Newsweek, Hill asked U.S. Capitol Police to investigate whether posting of the nude photos violated any laws. Hill’s lawyers also recently sent a “cease and desist” order, demanding the images be taken down from the internet. But the photos were still visible on the DailyMail site as of early Sunday.

Kelly received the bonus April 27, and it was nearly twice the amount that three other Hill campaign staffers received, the Post reported. He had raised more than $8 million for Hill’s primary- and general election campaigns in 2018, according to the Post.

According to CNBC, divorce papers filed in Los Angeles include an assertion by Heslep that Hill wanted him to be what’s commonly called a “house husband.”

“She told me that she wanted me to stay at home and care for our household,” Heslep said, according to the report. “She told me that she did not like to do household chores and duties and wanted me to stay at home and do those things while she worked.”

Heslep claimed in his court filing that he has only a high school diploma and hasn’t worked since 2014, CNBC reported.

Prior to being elected to Congress, Hill worked for a nonprofit called People Assisting the Homeless, and Heslep contends in the divorce filings that Hill used her “influence” to get him a series of jobs with the organization, until he was laid off from the final role in 2014.

“I have not been employed since that time,” Heslep wrote, according to CNBC.

Heslep said Hill left him in June, taking the couple’s “only operable vehicle,” and he is now asking a judge to order Hill to pay him spousal support and attorney fees.

A spokesperson for Hill’s office did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment.

Human remains found in area of Tick Fire in Southern California

Human remains described as “large bones” were found Saturday morning in Santa Clarita, Calif., in an area where the Tick Fire has been burning, officials said.

A public works employee discovered the remains, according to FOX 11 in Los Angeles.

However, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office told the station that a preliminary investigation suggested the remains had been in the area for at least a year, so the death was unrelated to the current fire.

The Tick Fire was reported to be 55 percent contained as of early Sunday, according to the Associated Press.

Meanwhile, the Kincade Fire continued to cause damage in Northern California, prompting an evacuation order for about 90,000 residents and precautionary shutoffs of electricity to Pacific Gas & Electric customers.

Sonoma County Sheriff Mark Essick pleaded with residents to comply with the evacuation order, citing the loss of 24 lives when a wildfire hit the same area two years ago.

“I’m seeing people reporting that they’re going to stay and fight this fire,” Essick said. “You cannot fight this. Please evacuate.”

A “high value ISIS target” believed to be Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi has been killed by U.S.-led forces in Idlib, Syria, a well-placed military source told Fox News on Saturday night.

The U.S. military cannot yet confirm the identity of the deceased target.

But at 9:23 p.m. Saturday, President Trump posted a Twitter message hinting at “very big” news.

Soon after, the White House issued a statement that major news would be announced from the White House at 9 a.m. Sunday.
