Authorities in eastern Oklahoma say a hearing-impaired woman has fatally shot an intruder inside her home near the Arkansas border.

Le Flore County Sheriff Rob Seale said Monday the woman was uninjured when a man broke into her home about 5:30 p.m. Sunday in Rock Island, about 190 miles east of Oklahoma City.

Seale says the woman yelled at the man to get out of the house and shot him once when he moved toward her. He says the woman did not know the man and had never seen him before.

Guido Germano, the former director of Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center who was arrested in June for allegedly distributing and possessing child pornography, was sentenced to five years of probation after admitting to possessing the pornography, reports said.

Germano was fired from his prestigious post last month. The 59-year-old must also attend a year of sex offender counseling, KTLA reported. He will also register as a lifetime sex offender, the report said.

The hospital said in a statement that Germano, who worked in scientific computing with no contact with patients, did not report his June 19 arrest to hospital officials.

Germano was on the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology board in 2012 and worked as a fellow for the American Heart Association in 2001, according to the hospital bio.

3 sailors assigned to USS George H.W. Bush commit suicide in same week

Three Navy sailors assigned to the USS George H.W. Bush aircraft carrier committed suicide last week in separate, unrelated incidents, officials announced Monday.

“It is with a heavy heart that I can confirm the loss of three Sailors last week in separate, unrelated incidents from apparent suicide. My heart is broken,” Capt. Sean Bailey, the carrier’s commanding officer, wrote in the announcement.

Bailey said the recent deaths marked the third, fourth and fifth crew members of the carrier, which is docked at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard in Virginia, to take their own lives in the last two years.

None of the deaths occurred on the carrier, which is docked at the shipyard for repairs, according to Navy Times.

Navy officials pushed back on suggestions online that the deaths point to an “epidemic.”

“The sailors did not serve in the same departments, and there does not appear to be a connection between their deaths,” Cmdr. Jennifer Cragg, the spokeswoman for Commander of Naval Air Force Atlantic, told the Times.

Capt. Bailey called on sailors on the carrier to come up with “suggestions and ideas” for how to prevent another suicide among its ranks.

“I want to reiterate that there is never any stigma or repercussion from seeking help,” he said. “Help is always available.

The report said the raccoon was found dead in a cage in Plainfield on July 4 at around 6:30 a.m. The animal had been doused in accelerant, the report said.

Man jailed in Texas is charged with murdering Florida woman who vanished in 2004

A man currently jailed in Texas is being charged in the 2004 murder of a woman who had vanished in Florida.

Terry McDonald was now charged with second-degree murder in the death of 28-year-old Mary Mount.

Mount was last seen in January 2004 with McDonald when she disappeared, Fox 4 reported.

Texas investigators said McDonald led them to her body in 2005.

Investigations from the newly created State Attorney’s Office Cold Case Homicide Division led to his current murder charge. He was jailed in Texas on a separate crime, the investigators added.

Vatican stops Indianapolis Archdiocese from stripping Jesuit high school of ‘Catholic’ label over gay teacher

The Vatican has stopped the Archdiocese of Indianapolis from no longer recognizing a Jesuit high school as Catholic because it refused to fire a teacher in a same-sex marriage.

“We have just learned that the Congregation for Catholic Education has decided to suspend the archbishop’s decree on an interim basis, pending its final resolution of our appeal,” the school president, Father Bill Verbryke, wrote in a letter posted to the school’s website on Monday, as RTV6 reported. “The archbishop very kindly informed me that, as a result of this temporary suspension of his decree, Brebeuf is free to resume our normal sacramental celebrations of the Eucharist. Most happily, this means that we will be able to celebrate the Mass for the Feast Day of St. Jean de Brebeuf on Oct. 24.”

In June, the high school in northern Indianapolis, which has almost 800 students in grades 9-12, with a faculty and staff of more than 130, said that it would cut ties with the teacher to stay in the city’s archdiocese.

A week before, a decree issued by Archbishop Charles Thompson stated that the school, Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory, “can no longer use the name Catholic and will no longer be identified or recognized as a Catholic institution.”

“Whether they teach religion or not, all ministers in their professional and private lives must convey and be supportive of Catholic Church teaching. The Archdiocese of Indianapolis recognizes all teachers, guidance counselors and administrators as ministers,” the archdiocese said in June.

Camel’s testicles bitten by woman at Louisiana truck stop petting zoo: authorities

A woman bit a camel’s testicles at a Louisiana truck stop petting zoo — and was cited for criminal trespassing, according to reports.

The woman, a Florida resident, was chasing her dog when she crawled into Caspar’s enclosure at the Tiger Truck Stop on I-10 in Grosse Tete, The Baton Rouge Advocate reported Sunday.

She told deputies she bit the 600-pound camel when he sat on her. It happened Thursday.

“She said: ‘I bit his b—- to get him off of me, I bit his testicles to get him off of me,’” Iberville Parish Deputy Louis Hamilton Jr. told the paper.

The woman was brought to a hospital.

Deputies gave her and her husband summonses on the trespassing charge and for not having their dog on a leash, The Advocate reported.

“The camel did nothing wrong,” Hamilton told the paper. “They were aggressive. The camel was just doing its normal routine.”

The truck stop once had a tiger, provoking controversy.

Pamela Bossier, who manages the truck stop, said the tiger had never attacked anyone, nor have the zoo’s other wild animals, including Caspar.

An American soldier at Fort Riley in Kansas has been arrested after allegedly discussing an attack on a major U.S. news network, sharing instructions on building a bomb and targeting Beto O’Rourke, authorities announced Monday.

Jarrett William Smith, 24, was charged with one count of distributing information related to explosives and weapons of mass destruction, the Department of Justice said in a news release.

SOLDIER ARRESTED WITH TWO OTHERS IN DEATH OF STEPFATHER FOUND IN OKLAHOMA CEMETERY

Smith, a private first class infantry soldier, allegedly spoke to an undercover FBI agent last month and discussed plans to conduct an attack in the U.S. He said he was looking for more “radicals” like himself and mentioned killing members of the far-left group Antifa, according to an affidavit.

He allegedly suggested a major American news network, the name of which was redacted from the affidavit, could be the target of a vehicle bomb.

“A large vehicle bomb. Fill a vehicle full of [explosives] then fill a ping pong ball with [commonly available chemical] via drilling, then injection. Put the ball in the tank of the vehicle and leave. 30 minutes later, BOOM,” Smith allegedly said.

Smith again engaged in conversation with an undercover FBI agent on Friday, allegedly having an exchange over a person who would make a good target to kill. He appears to refer to 2020 Democratic presidential contender and former Texas congressman O’Rourke.

“FBI: You got anyone down in Texas that would be a good fit for fire, destruction and death?

SMITH: Outside of Beto? I don’t know enough people that would be relevant enough to cause a change if they died.”

In December of last year, he offered to teach others over Facebook chat how to make cellphone explosive devices “in the style of the Afghans,” according to the affidavit.

A year before joining the Army, Smith expressed a desire to join the violent, far-right Ukrainian paramilitary group called Azov Battalion, officials said.

Smith joined the Army June 12, 2017, and was transferred to Fort Riley, Kan., on July 8.

He could face a maximum of 20 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000, if convicted.

New Mexico child, 2, dead after being left by nanny in car; parents say child was miracle after 6 miscarriages

A 2-year-old New Mexico girl is dead after her nanny allegedly forgot about her in a hot vehicle, dealing an especially cruel blow to her parents, who claim to have suffered six miscarriages before her birth.

Zariah Hasheme, of Hobbs, died on Tuesday after her nanny, 41-year-old Tammie Brooks, allegedly left her in the car, according to investigators. Around 6:30 a.m., Brooks was supposed to drop the toddler off at daycare, but “drove to her place of employment instead.”

WHY DO PARENTS FORGET THEIR CHILDREN IN PARKED, HOT CARS?

It wasn’t until hours later that Brooks “realized the child was still in the car after running an errand,” the Hobbs Police Department wrote on Facebook. Authorities responded around 1:30 p.m., when they found Zariah unresponsive.

Zariah was an only child, according to her parents, Zachary Hasheme and Demi Petrowski. Petrowski said she suffereda number of miscarriages before successfully having Zariah.

“I had six miscarriages previously to having my daughter,” she told KOB. “I remember praying every single day, nonstop.”

Petrowski said the loss of her daughter is unbearable, and that she “would not wish this pain and this hurt upon my worst enemy.”

Hasheme said he learned of Zariah’s death from Petrowski, who called him “screaming on the other line saying that Zariah’s dead and I didn’t know what to do. … I slammed on my brakes and pulled over.”

The devastated father said, “I mean, you can forget to bring a pen with you, but it’s kind of hard to forget about a kid in the car.”

Zariah is one of 43 children to die so far this year from being left alone in a hot car, according to nonprofit organization Kids and Cars, which tracks such deaths.

Parenting expert Dr. Rosina McAlpine previously told Fox News caregivers forget children in vehicles when they’re in a rush to get to work, or an appointment, and are distracted, leaving them to forget about the child in the car.

Authorities said Brooks was charged with abandonment or abuse of a child resulting in death. She’s been locked up in the Hobbs County Jail on no bond, according to jail records.

Florida woman, 26, filmed kicking, choking dog with leash is arrested

A Florida woman who was caught on video choking and kicking her dog has been arrested and her dogs have reportedly been taken away.

Michelle Sieber, 26, was spotted by a bystander on Friday morning walking through a parking lot in Tarpon Springs with her dog, who she allegedly kicked and appeared to choke with its leash.

“No, but you can’t do what you’re doing,” Minutello tells her. “You’re choking him, you’re hanging your dog… He’s sitting there by his neck and he can’t breathe, if you watch him.”

Sieber defends her actions and continues to tell Minutello to take him, saying he’s up for adoption. Minutello said he reported Sieber to the Tarpon Springs Police Department.
