Michigan man handed 60-day prison sentence after poisoning ex-wife’s coffee during divorce

A Michigan man was handed a 60-day prison sentence after he was caught on camera repeatedly poisoning his ex-wife’s morning cup of joe during a bitter divorce.

Brian Kozlowski, 46, was given what prosecutors felt was a “light” punishment after he pleaded no contest in June to spiking his soon-to-be ex-wife’s coffee at the time with diphenhydramine, the primary ingredient in most antihistamines, FOX2 reported.

Therese Kozlowski reportedly told officials that in July 2018, she felt tired, nauseous and was experiencing blurred vision after drinking coffee that her husband had made for her. After repeatedly falling ill, she set up cameras in her kitchen.

“I watched in horror as he poured himself a cup of coffee, took the blue substance and poured it into the pot,” she said in court on Thursday. “And swirls it around.”

Kozlowski, who filed for divorce in  May 2018, claimed her husband poisoned her on several other occasions with other drugs.

“He loaded me up with Adderall during summer boat trips, put laxatives in my protein powder and now poisoning my coffee.”

She told a judge Thursday that she considered the poisoning “attempted murder.” Despite this, visiting Judge Anthony Viviano ruled against a strong prison sentence, giving Brian Kozlowski 60 days in jail, to be served on weekends.

“The sentence handed down by retired, visiting Judge Antonio Viviano was a slap in the face to the victim and the justice system in general,” Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith said in a statement to FOX2.

“The defendant pleaded guilty to a 15-year felony in June for repeatedly poisoning his wife. The pre-sentence investigation report recommended a sentence of 38 – 180 months, yet the Judge sentenced the defendant to only 60 days, served on weekends.”

Smith called the ruling “troubling.”

A New York City art gallery owner with a bruised eye says he was beaten by a group of teens on the street Tuesday because he was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.

“It’s sad to get beat up for wearing this hat. This is America,” Jahangir Turan, 42, said, claiming more than a dozen attackers shouted “F— Trump!” during the assault, FOX 5 in New York reported.

“They were saying ‘Why are you wearing that?’ One girl flipped the hat off my head, and I tried to grab it. Then they came after me. One guy grabbed me from behind and slammed my head against a metal post,” the New York Daily News reported.

Turan said the hat was an impulse buy at Trump Tower in Manhattan shortly before the attack. He was heading to dinner with a friend in Chinatown when he was allegedly jumped, according to the Daily News.

Tennessee Uber driver shoots man who fired at him and his passenger, police say

A Tennessee Uber driver shot a man who fired a gun at him and his passenger on Wednesday night, according to police.

The Uber driver told police that he drove his passenger to a Nashville liquor store and once there, the passenger held the door open for a man later identified as Jason Johns Jr., who gave him an “odd look,” according to The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department.

Police said Johns then followed the Uber driver and passenger to a nearby street and when the driver stopped to let out his passenger, Johns fired shots from about 10 feet away.

The Uber driver then allegedly returned fire, striking Johns, who took off on foot then got a ride to a local hospital where he was treated for wounds to his chest and an arm, WKRN-TV reported, citing affidavits.

Affidavits reportedly said Johns first lied about what had happened but later admitted that he was “disrespected” at the liquor store so he followed the Uber and opened fire.

The Uber driver and his passenger were not hit by gunfire, police said.

Johns, 18, left behind a 2014 Nissan Pathfinder that was reported stolen, according to police.

Johns has been charged with aggravated assault and theft.

Police said was convicted of robbery when he was 15 and was charged last year with aggravated robbery after he admitted to stealing a woman’s car at gunpoint outside an apartment complex in Hermitage, Tenn., which is about twenty minutes from Nashville.

Amazon drivers part of major theft ring, FBI says

A theft ring in Washington state sold millions of dollars’ worth of stolen goods on Amazon.com in the past six years, and a pair of contract Amazon delivery drivers was involved, recently unsealed federal court documents show.

According to a search warrant affidavit unsealed in U.S. District Court in Seattle and reviewed by The Associated Press, two storefront businesses posing as pawn shops bought the goods from shoplifters, then had the items shipped to Amazon warehouses, where they were stored until sold online.

Entities associated with the alleged ringleader did at least $10 million in sales on Amazon since 2013, FBI agent Ariana Kroshinsky wrote in her affidavit.

ATTORNEY GENERAL BARR TARGETS AMAZON, FACEBOOK IN BROAD ANTITRUST PROBE

No charges have yet been filed, though investigators have raided the pawn shops and the home of the man identified as the ringleader, Aleksandr Pavlovskiy, 44, of Auburn. A man who answered the door at one of the shops Wednesday identified himself as Alex and told The Associated Press his business was legitimate, that he kept good records and he should not be in any trouble.

Among those who provided stolen items to the pawn shops were two contract Amazon drivers, Kroshinsky said. Their job was to travel to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, pick up items being returned to the company and then bring them to an Amazon warehouse south of Seattle, and to deliver items to post offices for shipping. Instead, they routinely stole the goods and sold them to the pawn shops, she wrote.

Amazon did not immediately return an email seeking comment about the case Thursday.

The investigation began last summer when a police detective in Auburn, a south Seattle suburb, was perusing a record of pawn shop sales and noticed that one man had made 57 transactions. It turned out to be one of the drivers.

AMAZON WAS NOT SCARED OFF BY AOC, NYC MAYOR SAYS

He had received nearly $30,000 selling items to the pawn shops between February and July last year, the affidavit said. Police initially arrested the driver, but released him from jail to avoid disrupting their larger investigation.

The other driver, identified as Abbas Zghair, was believed to be a roommate of the first. Amazon told investigators that Zghair stole about $100,000 worth of property, including gaming systems, sporting goods and computer products — items he sold to one of the pawn shops for less than $20,000, the agent wrote.

In an unrelated case, Zghair has been charged with murder after police said he shot and killed a man in an Auburn field in March, then fled to the Canadian border, where he was arrested trying to cross with a fake ID. He’s being held on $2.5 million bail.

Both drivers worked for Amazon contractor JW Logistics, based in Frisco, Texas. It was unclear how long Zghair had worked for the company, but in 2015, he was convicted of reckless driving in Lewis County after leading police on a chase in excess of 100 mph (161 kph), running red lights, driving across multiple lanes of travel and crashing into a field.

The company said a representative was not immediately available to comment after regular business hours Thursday.

Detectives staked out the pawn shops, Innovation Best in Kent and Thrift-Electro in Renton, and observed that they appeared to be paying shoplifters and drug users cash for new items from Home Depot, Lowes and Fred Meyer department stores. Unlike typical pawn shops, they didn’t make sales; instead, the products were moved to a warehouse and to Amazon “fulfillment centers,” from where they were shipped when they were sold on Amazon’s website by sellers using the handles “Bestforyouall” or “Freeshipforyou,” the affidavit said.

AMAZON HAS ‘DESTROYED THE RETAIL INDUSTRY ACROSS THE UNITED STATES,’ MNUCHIN SAYS

According to a database of pawnshop transactions reviewed by Auburn police, the suspect pawn shops paid more than $4.1 million to sellers who brought them nearly 48,000 items in the past six years. The items included allergy medication, razors, electric toothbrushes and tools in their original packaging. Detectives also conducted undercover operations in which they sold new items in their original packaging to the shops, which accepted them no questions asked, Kroshinsky wrote.

The FBI said it is awaiting more Amazon records to determine the full extent of Pavlovskiy’s enterprise, but that “estimated revenue from Amazon sales, for entities associated with Aleksandr Pavlovskiy, was at least $10 million since 2013.”

Pavlovskiy’s lawyer, Cristine Beckwith, did not return a message seeking comment.

The sale of stolen or counterfeit goods on Amazon or other digital marketplaces is not uncommon, but it was not immediately clear how many other schemes had reached such a volume of sales. Last year, police raided a pawn shop in Monroe, north of Seattle, that they said had taken in $428,000 fencing stolen items, much of it on Amazon.

Jon Reily, a vice president for the digital consultancy firm Publicis Sapient and previously the head of e-commerce user experience for Amazon Devices, said preventing the sale of stolen goods is a major challenge for the company, but retailers can be held liable if they don’t do enough to ensure they’re not selling stolen goods. Because it’s impossible for Amazon to review “every Tide pod” that’s sold on its site, the company will likely need to do more to vet sellers, Riley said.

“It’s a little bit of an arms race for Amazon to be able to take in product, put it on the web and get it to their customers in a speedy fashion and not unwittingly sell stolen stuff at the same time,” Reily said. “Ultimately what Amazon has to do is show good faith if the government comes knocking on the door and says, ‘Look, you’re selling stolen goods.’”

Truck driver in New Hampshire crash that killed 7 bikers was on drugs, report says

A Massachusetts truck driver who has been charged with negligent homicide in a June crash that killed seven motorcyclists in New Hampshire was on drugs and reaching for a beverage just before the tragedy, The Boston Globe reported Thursday.

The Globe, citing a report by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, said that Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, 23, tested positive for an unspecified drug when his pickup truck crossed the yellow center line of U.S. Route 2 and hit the motorcyclists on the evening of June 21 in Randolph, N.H. Zhukovskyy also admitted to reaching for a drink just before the crash, but did not specify what kind of beverage.

Zhukovskyy, of West Springfield, Mass. has pleaded not guilty and remains behind bars. The seven victims were members of the Jarheads Motorcycle Club, a New England group made up of Marines and their spouses.

Zhukovskyy and his lawyer have yet to comment on the matter.

Since the crash, it has emerged that Zhukovskyy had multiple run-ins with the law.

In May, Connecticut prosecutors said Zhukovskyy was arrested in a Walmart parking lot after failing a sobriety test. Zhukovskyy’s lawyer in that case, John O’Brien, said he denies being intoxicated and will fight the charge.

Connecticut officials twice alerted Massachusetts about an earlier drunken driving arrest. Massachusetts investigators later determined the Registry of Motor Vehicles hadn’t been acting on thousands of out-of-state notifications about serious driving violations. The commonwealth’s registrar of motor vehicles, Erin Deveney, resigned in late June after the lapse was made public.

DEADLY BIKER CRASH PROMPTS MASSACHUSETTS MOTOR VEHICLE CHIEF TO RESIGN

Westfield Transport, the company that Zhukovskyy was driving for on the day of June 21 crash also has a troubled history.

According to an Associated Press analysis of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration data, Westfield Transport Inc. faced over 60 violations over the last 24 months.

About one in five inspections of its vehicles ended with federal investigators issuing temporary orders saying the carrier was not authorized to operate. The company’s out-of-service rate is 20.8 percent — a figure nearly four times greater than the national average of 5.5 percent.

Federal records show the company has faced seven violations for unsafe driving, including speeding. The company also faced two violations in March 2018, reported in Massachusetts and Vermont, of drivers who were in possession of a narcotic drug or amphetamine.

Lawyers for missing Connecticut mom’s husband calls report of her blood-stained shirt ‘speculation’

Westlake Legal Group a4825366-ContentBroker_contentid-49a6a81474ce42dcbf1d96a4239f11fb Lawyers for missing Connecticut mom's husband calls report of her blood-stained shirt 'speculation' Vandana Rambaran fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/connecticut fox-news/us/crime fox-news/us fox news fnc/us fnc article a45fdae6-112a-52fb-9ff6-51beffe561b3

Attorneys for Fotis Dulos say reports that investigators found a blood-stained T-shirt and bra that may be what his client’s estranged wife, Jennifer Dulos, was wearing on the day she disappeared sound “like desperate speculation.”

“I am unaware of any evidence about what she was wearing when she disappeared,” Dulos’ attorney Norm Pattis said in a statement responding to reports by The Hartford Courant.

JENNIFER DULOS’ MOTHER GRANTED CUSTODY OF HER CHILDREN AS HER WHEREABOUTS STILL REMAIN UNKNOWN

The paper reported Wednesday that the items of clothing, including a Vineyard Vines T-shirt that family members say the Hartford mom wore,  were uncovered after police sifted through tons of trash.

Fox News also confirmed that Dulos’ defense team received 26 CDs in discovery that prosecutors say show a man that appears to be Fotis Dulos dumping bags of trash “which appeared to be stained with a substance consistent with the appearance of blood,” along Albany Avenue starting on the day his wife disappeared, according to court documents.

Pattis said that he was unable to view some of the footage on the CDs, and has asked Stamford/Norwalk State’s Attorney Richard Colangelo for new copies of several of the discs.

The 50-year-old mother of five was last seen dropping off her kids at their school in New Canaan, Conn. Her 2017 black Chevy Suburban was found near Waveny Park with no sign of her.

Fotis and Jennifer Dulos were in the midst of a bitter divorce and custody battle over their children– three boys and two girls ranging in ages from 8 to 13.

In the wake of her disappearance, a judge has granted Jennifer’s mother, Gloria Farber, custody of the children as they continue with the ongoing investigation.

Fotis Dulos, 51, and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, 44, are out on $500,000 bail after being charged with evidence tampering and hindering prosecution in relation to the missing-person investigation.

Dulos is due to appear in Stamford Superior Court on Aug. 9 and is expected to face further charges.

California man busted on weapons, drug charges after homemade shotgun goes off in park: police

A California man was allegedly tinkering with a homemade shotgun in a public park on Tuesday when the weapon accidentally fired, leading police to find and arrest him.

Juan Bais, 41, faces charges of possession of the shotgun, methamphetamine pipes, and discharging the weapon, police said.

Deputies said two spent .40 caliber rounds and one bullet with hair on it were also found at the home.

Investigators followed a trail of blood toward the front of the house, where they saw “a large dog on the front porch with the doors open and it licking its front leg.” The dog’s right eye was “mutilated” and had fresh blood coming out of it, according to prosecutors.

Stubbers told deputies the dog attacked him and he felt “he had to put the dog down tonight.” When a deputy told him the dog was still alive, Stubbers allegedly said the dog “latched” onto his arm earlier, prompting Stubbers to whack the dog with a hammer in self-defense.

Deputies stated they didn’t see any marks on Stubbers’ arms that would indicate the dog attacked him.

One neighbor told WKRC that Cooper is a friendly dog.

“Really good dog,” said the resident, who was not identified. “Fed Ex, UPS and the big companies love him when they come to make deliveries. Just a great dog.”

Stubbers, who reportedly owns Fairfield Primary Care in Ohio was charged with felony animal cruelty.

Officials said the dog was taken in by Dearborn County Animal Control and was being treated by veterinarians.

Arizona man says his mother’s body was blown up in a military detonation test without his consent: report

Westlake Legal Group 081309_sr_2garrett_16_9 Arizona man says his mother's body was blown up in a military detonation test without his consent: report fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/arizona fox-news/us/crime fox news fnc/us fnc Danielle Wallace c5504daa-3d8e-527c-9cb4-e4545bac71d5 article

An Arizona man learned five years after his mother’s death that her body had been sold to the military and detonated in a bomb blast test without his consent, a report said.

Doris Stauffer died at the age of 73 in 2014 after suffering from Alzheimer’s disease later in life. Her son, Jim Stauffer, agreed to allow doctors to study his mother’s brain, but the neurologist rejected the body after she died, Phoenix’s KNXV-TV reported. He sought out other biological donation facilities with the hopes his mother’s body could be used to further research into what causes memory loss in Alzheimer’s patients.

FBI RAID UNCOVERS BUCKETS OF BODY PARTS, ‘UNSETTLING SCENES’: REPORT

Biological Resource Center (BRC), a since shutdown Phoenix-based organ-donor facility, arrived within 45 minutes of her death to take the body away, he said. He said he signed paperwork that specified what was and what was not to happen to his mother’s body. “Performing these medical tests that may involve explosions, and we said no. We checked the ‘no’ box on all that,” Jim Stauffer said.

He later received a box with what he was told was the majority of his mother’s ashes, some information and an ID number.

He said Reuters assembled a paper trail using internal documents obtained by authorities that revealed BRC sold his mother’s body to a military contractor to be used in detonation testing. Her body was strapped to a chair and a bomb was detonated underneath it to simulate what happens to the human body when a vehicle hits an IED, he said.

“I feel foolish,” he told KNXV-TV. “Because I’m not a trusting person, but in this situation, you have no idea this is going on — you trust. I think that trust is what they fed on.”

He joined a civil lawsuit filed against BRC and its owner Stephen Gore, which alleges the body-donor facility preyed on low-income, uneducated and grieving families to get them to donate their loved ones’ bodies under false pretenses.

A Pentagon spokesperson told Reuters that BRC provided body parts to U.S. Army contractors under false pretenses, leading the military to believe BRC received consent from family to use their relatives’ bodies in destructive tests.

The Federal Bureau of Investigations raided BRC in 2014 after allegations that the organization was dissecting body parts to sell them for profit. Gore pleaded guilty in 2015 to defrauding customers by selling contaminated body parts to paying medical institutions, Reuters reported.  Gore will appear in court in October to face the families involved in the civil suit, KNXV-TV reported.
