Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news Motel owner charged with abusing 3 children fox-news/us/crime fnc/us fnc BUCKSPORT, Maine Associated Press article a218dbcc-8660-56ec-8a40-22bf1c1becd8

Court documents indicate a Maine motel owner accused of abusing three children bound a 6-year-old girl and hung her upside down from a hook as punishment.

An affidavit filed in court indicates the assaults happened at the Spring Fountain Motel in Bucksport while the owner was watching the three siblings while their mom was at work.

Kaleem Adnan, who goes by “Danny,” denies harming the kids, and said they were making up lies against him because he cut off their cable TV and video games.

He’s facing felony assault charges, as well as opioid charges. Adan, who’s due in court in June, said he intends to fight the charges.

Mom pleads guilty in case of naked, chained Alabama boy

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news Mom pleads guilty in case of naked, chained Alabama boy PRATTVILLE, Ala. fox-news/us/crime fnc/us fnc Associated Press article 96939b29-c764-5ebf-8a20-a6d0e77b49fe

An Alabama woman has pleaded guilty to aggravated child abuse of her son, who authorities say was found naked and chained up.

The Montgomery Advertiser reports the 32-year-old woman entered the plea Thursday, saying she “made bad decision and bad judgments.” Autauga County Sheriff Joe Sedinger has said deputies responding to an anonymous report of child abuse in September found the boy chained to a door in a Prattville home.

The sheriff said the boy was apparently chained for several hours that day. Prosecutors say evidence shows the malnourished boy also had been forced to sleep in a dog crate for years.

The boy’s mother is set to be sentenced in August. His stepfather, grandmother and two uncles charged in the case are set to go to trial in July.

Florida man obsessed with Bulgarian camgirl before allegedly killing his family, records show

A Florida man accused of killing his family after stealing $200,000 to fund a depraved online relationship with a Bulgarian camgirl sent her sex toys and clothing that she wore in raunchy snaps and videos she sent back to him, new records show.

The files — released Wednesday by the Seminole-Brevard State Attorney’s Office and obtained by The New York Post — contain dozens of pornographic images and videos from a flash drive seized by authorities investigating the relationship between Grant Amato, 29, and camgirl Silviya Ventsislavova, before Amato’s parents and brother were found dead in their Chuluota home on Jan 25.

In one image, a manicured hand holds a sex toy,  while another shows Ventsislavova wearing a G-string with her rump turned to the lens. The trove of data also contained text messages between the pair, as well as a hand-written note that “Silvie” sent Amato in December, records show.

“Smile, my light!” read the note, which was punctuated with a kiss in red lipstick. “You make me happy!”

In one text exchange, Amato asked Ventsislavova how her “crazy” body functioned on such little sleep.

Two minutes later, she asked how Amato felt being back home before sending a link featuring her at MyFreeCams.com, the records reveal.

“With this link … it feels even better now,” Amato replied. “I can’t wait to f–-ing watch you be super innocent in those tempting panties.”

Amato then added: “But I’m so happy to be back. It just feels right.”

Ventsislavova then told Amato “you can watch it” before adding a shrugging emoji.

The Latest: Alabama inmate executed for killing preacher

The Latest on the scheduled execution of an Alabama inmate (all times local):

7:35 p.m.

A man convicted of using a sword and knife to kill a country preacher during a robbery has been executed in Alabama, weeks after he was initially scheduled to die.

Christopher Lee Price was killed by lethal injection on Thursday night.

The 46-year-old Price was nearly put to death in April before an execution warrant expired. He had sought a stay from the U.S. Supreme Court based on a challenge to Alabama’s method of using three drugs during lethal injections.

Price was convicted of killing Bill Lynn, a Church of Christ minister in rural Fayette County, on Dec. 22, 1991. Lynn’s wife testified she looked out a window and saw someone dressed in black holding a sword above her husband’s head.

Price becomes the second Alabama inmate executed in two weeks.

___

6:35 p.m.

The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to block the execution of an Alabama inmate.

The decision means the state can proceed with the execution of 46-year-old Christopher Lee Price. But the execution is being temporarily delayed anyway.

Prison spokesman Bob Horton says officers are taking longer than expected to prepare 46-year-old Christopher Lee Price for a lethal injection on Thursday night.

The preparation includes strapping the inmate to a gurney and inserting a needle into one of his arms for the delivery of three chemicals.

Price was condemned for the 1991 slaying of a pastor.

___

5:15 p.m.

An Alabama inmate set to die for a 1991 slaying has apologized to the victim’s relatives hours before his scheduled execution.

A lawyer for Christopher Lee Price, Aaron Katz, released a statement from Price saying he was “so terribly sorry” for killing minister Bill Lynn. The statement ends with: “Nobody deserves that.”

The 46-year-old Price was convicted of using a sword and knife to kill Lynn during a robbery. Another man who pleaded guilty in the slaying is serving a life sentence.

The U.S. Supreme Court is considering Price’s request for a delay, but the state is asking to proceed with the execution.

Officials say relatives of both Price and Lynn plan to witness his lethal injection, but they will be inside separate viewing rooms at Holman Prison.

___

5 p.m.

An Alabama death row inmate is visiting with relatives hours before his scheduled execution.

Department of Corrections spokesman Bob Horton says 46-year-old Christopher Lee Price was visited by his wife, uncle and an attorney before he was scheduled to receive a lethal injection at Holman prison on Thursday night.

Horton says those three plan to witness the execution, plus two cousins of Price.

Relatives of Price’s victim, Church of Christ pastor Bill Lynn, also plan to attend. Their relationship to Lynn wasn’t disclosed.

The U.S. Supreme Court is considering a stay request from Price, who was nearly executed last month before the execution warrant expired. The state is asking the court to let the execution go forward.

Horton says Price requested a final meal of four pints of ice cream.

___

12:05 p.m.

The state of Alabama is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to let it proceed with an execution scheduled for Thursday night.

State attorneys argue in court papers that Christopher Lee Price is bringing up issues that have already been decided as he tries to block his lethal injection.

Price narrowly missed being executed last month before the death warrant expired amid court reviews. The state says what it calls “delay tactics” shouldn’t be rewarded again.

The 46-year-old Price was convicted of using a sword and knife to kill minister Bill Lynn during a 1991 Christmastime robbery.

___

7:45 a.m.

An Alabama inmate is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to delay his execution set for Thursday night.

Attorneys for Christopher Lee Price are seeking a stay by arguing that his federal lawsuit challenging Alabama’s lethal injection method is set for trial on June 10.

They say the trial should be allowed to happen and would probably end in Price’s favor.

The state contends Price is raising issues that have already been decided, and lower courts have refused to postpone the execution.

The 46-year-old Price was convicted of using a sword and knife to kill country preacher Bill Lynn during a 1991 Christmastime robbery.

Price would become the second inmate put to death in Alabama in two weeks.

___

12:15 a.m.

A man who was nearly put to death before an execution warrant expired last month is again set to die by lethal injection in Alabama.

The execution of 46-year-old Christopher Lee Price is scheduled for Thursday night.

He was convicted of using a sword and knife to kill a country preacher during a Christmastime robbery almost three decades ago.

The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals refused a stay on Wednesday for Price, who is challenging the state’s method of using three drugs during lethal injections. He could again ask the Supreme Court to intervene.

Price was convicted of killing of Bill Lynn, a Church of Christ minister in rural Fayette County, on Dec. 22, 1991.

Price would become the second Alabama inmate executed in two weeks.

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news 2 men indicted in sidewalk shooting of Memphis civic leader fox-news/us/crime fnc/us fnc f5c17ee0-75fc-516f-84ac-d76a6aa7a7ea Associated Press article Adrian Sainz

Two Tennessee men have been indicted on first-degree murder charges in the fatal shooting of a civic leader and former airline executive on a Memphis sidewalk.

The Shelby County district attorney’s office said Thursday that 22-year-old McKinney Wright Jr. and 18-year-old Quandarius Richardson were also indicted on attempted especially aggravated robbery charges in Philip Trenary’s death.

Authorities say the 64-year-old Trenary was walking along a street in September when a man exited the passenger side of a pickup truck, approached Trenary from behind and shot him in the head.

Trenary was the president and CEO of the Greater Memphis Chamber of Commerce. Trenary was also the former head of Pinnacle Airlines.

Richardson’s lawyer says he plans to plead not guilty. Wright’s attorney did not immediately return a phone message.

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news Man accused of standoff, trooper's shooting indicted MCKINNEY, Texas fox-news/us/crime fnc/us fnc Associated Press article 3c0181b1-89af-5114-9636-ccc5d4aa5802

A man accused of shooting a Texas state trooper while fleeing a suburban Dallas traffic stop has been indicted on multiple counts that could, if he’s convicted, send him to prison for life.

A Collin County grand jury returned a seven-count indictment Tuesday against 42-year-old Bryan Matthew Cahill, charging him with four counts of aggravated assault on a public servant with a deadly weapon. The indictment also charges him with assorted other aggravated assault counts and evading arrest.

Police say the March 29 incident began when a state trooper tried to stop Cahill for a traffic violation. Instead, Cahill drove to his Frisco apartment complex, shooting the trooper in the leg while fleeing to his apartment.

A 15-hour standoff ensued before Cahill surrendered. He’s jailed on $3.05 million bond.

Priest labeled as sexually violent admits Missouri crimes

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news Priest labeled as sexually violent admits Missouri crimes St. Louis fox-news/us/crime fnc/us fnc Associated Press article 21411fe3-6c91-5e4a-9579-07956404cfb6

The man who became the first U.S. priest to be labeled sexually violent for crimes in Illinois has admitting abusing two boys in Missouri.

Fred Lenczycki pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of sodomy for crimes that occurred in the early 1990s. He was serving at a parish in north St. Louis County at the time.

Lenczycki admitted grabbing the genitals of one boy and trying to force the other to expose himself. His sentencing is scheduled for August.

Lenczycki is now 74 and lives in suburban Chicago. Church and court files say he has admitted abusing as many as 30 boys over 25 years in Illinois, Missouri and California.

He was removed from the ministry in 2002, when he was charged with sexually abusing three boys at a church in Hinsdale, Illinois, in the 1980s.
