A man who had allegedly been hiding out in his ex-girlfriend’s Pittsburgh home is now facing burglary charges, officials said.

Cary Michael Cocuzzi’s ex-girlfriend, who had a protection from abuse order against Cocuzzi, discovered her ex in her bedroom Saturday, authorities said.

The woman, who was not identified, told WPXI she saw signs around her home someone else was inside with her, such as when she discovered a blanket on the floor even though she hadn’t left it there.

“I feel like this is going to affect me for the rest of my life,” she told WPXI. “I had an intuition about it but I ignored it, I brushed it aside. I didn’t want to seem paranoid. But I should have trusted my instincts because I was right.”

Cocuzzi, 31, allegedly grabbed the woman, put a hand over her mouth and told her “Get over here,” according to the criminal complaint.

However, she pushed him away and was able to make it outside, where her terrified screams spurred several neighbors to call 911, officials said.

When police arrived and searched the home, they reported Cocuzzi was still there. They said he told officers he was homeless and had been sneaking in and out of the house for about two weeks.

The woman told the media outlet she was thankful her daughters were not at the residence at the time of the incident.

Cocuzzi is being held in the Allegheny County Jail and a preliminary hearing is slated for May 2. It was not immediately clear if he had retained an attorney.

A woman working at a facility in Pennsylvania died Monday in a “horrible” meat grinder accident, the county coroner said.

The fatal incident took place around 11:30 a.m. at the Economy Locker Storage Company, WNEP reported. It involved a commercial meat grinder, Lycoming County Coroner Charles E. Kiessling Jr. told the Williamsport Sun-Gazette.

“We don’t know if she fell in or was pulled in as she was perhaps reaching for something in the grinder, which was about 6 feet off the ground, he said.

Upon discovering what happened, a co-worker contacted authorities, Kiessling told the outlet. By the time they got to the scene, the unidentified woman was deceased, according to the Sun-Gazette, citing officials.

Two teenage girls and two adult men are facing homicide and other charges in connection with the brutal beating stabbing death of the 71-year-old grandfather of one of the girls, authorities said.

The girls, ages 16 and 17, and the men, ages 19 and 20, committed the crime so they could take $30,000 in cash that the elderly man kept in a safe in the basement of his Edwardsville, Pa., home, authorities said.

NORTH CAROLINA MAN STABBED WOMAN AT TACO BELL AFTER SHE TURNED DOWN DATE, COPS SAY

The girls and the 19-year-old man were arrested early Thursday at a hotel near Wilkes-Barre, while the 20-year-old was still at large, PennLive.com reported.

The grandfather was killed Monday but his body wasn’t found until Wednesday after other family members started searching for him, Scranton’s WNEP-TV reported.

The body was found under a large dresser on the second floor of the home. Police said he had been beaten with a golf club and stabbed in the neck.

The names of the teens are being withheld by Fox News because of their ages. The men were identified as Christopher Brian Cortez, 19, and Devin Malik Cunningham, 20, both of Wilkes-Barre.

After the elderly man was killed, the four suspects took showers in the home to wash off blood, the Citizens’ Voice reported.

“Over money. Your own family. It’s just a disgrace,” neighbor Ronald Briggs told WNEP.

Ex-Black Panther on death row for 1981 cop killing to get new chance at appeal

A former Black Panther member who was convicted in the 1981 killing of a Philadelphia police officer will get a chance at a new appeals hearing after a prosecutor dropped his opposition to it.

Mumia Abu-Jamal, 64, was sentenced to death for killing Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner, who had pulled his brother over during an overnight traffic stop. He was tried in absentia after attempts to serve as his own lawyer.

PENNSYLVANIA MAN, 76, CHARGED WITH KILLING WIFE WHO VANISHED IN 1981

Abu-Jamal was given a new chance in December to argue his initial appeal by Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Leon Tucker after the U.S. Supreme Court determined a former state justice improperly heard and appeal in a murder case he had seen as district attorney.

FARRAKHAN CLAIMS TO BE JESUS IN ‘SAVIOURS’ DAY’ ADDRESS: ‘I AM THE MESSIAH

District Attorney Larry Krasner dropped his argument against Abu-Jamal, giving him a fresh chance at a new appeal despite arguing it could affect a large number of other convictions. Krasner agreed that then-District Attorney Ronald Castille – who presided over the Abu-Jamal case – shouldn’t have worn “two hats.”

A 1990 note Castille sent to then Gov. Robert Casey said “police killers” should get death warrants to “send a clear and dramatic message to all police killers that the death penalty actually means something.

Maureen Faulkner, David’s widow, said Krasner broke a promise to tell her about his decision before announcing it.

“I was just crying my eyes out, once again,” she said. “What about the survivors? What about victims in Philadelphia, and how they’re notified?”

Kranser’s office said he spoke to her Tuesday before making his final decision.

Judith Ritter, an attorney for Abu-Jamal, praised Krasner’s decision.

A man plowed his car into a group of people following an altercation in Philadelphia Tuesday afternoon, injuring six people, police say.

Investigators say the incident unfolded at around 3:45 p.m. in North Philadelphia. At least one of the victims was in critical condition, Fox 29 reported.

The 44-year-old driver, who has not been identified, suffered head and facial injuries and was taken to a local hospital, where he was charged with aggravated assault. Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small told WPVI that the driver was pulled out of his car and attacked by passersby at the scene before he was taken away.

According to police, a 37-year-old man was in critical condition after suffering a head injury and body trauma. A 28-year-old man suffered a left arm injury and a 40-year-old woman suffered a left shoulder injury and both were in stable condition.

Pulitzer Prizes honor coverage of Parkland, Pittsburgh and Annapolis mass shootings

Westlake Legal Group pulitzer-prizes-honor-coverage-of-parkland-pittsburgh-and-annapolis-mass-shootings Pulitzer Prizes honor coverage of Parkland, Pittsburgh and Annapolis mass shootings New York fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/pennsylvania fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/maryland fox-news/news-events/florida-school-shooting fox-news/entertainment/media fnc/us fnc Associated Press article 66284fef-351d-5e38-96df-3234c16fd5ce

The South Florida Sun Sentinel and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette won Pulitzer Prizes on Monday and were recognized along with the Capital Gazette of Maryland for their coverage of the horrifying mass shootings in 2018 at a high school, a synagogue and a newsroom itself.

The Associated Press won in the international reporting category for documenting the humanitarian horrors of Yemen’s civil war, while The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal were honored for delving into President Donald Trump’s finances and breaking open the hush-money scandals involving two women who said they had affairs with him.

The Florida paper received the Pulitzer in public service for its coverage of the massacre of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and for detailing the shortcomings in school discipline and security that contributed to the carnage.

The Post-Gazette was honored in the breaking news category for its reporting on the synagogue rampage that left 11 people dead. The man awaiting trial in the attack railed against Jews before, during and after the massacre, authorities said.

After the Pulitzer announcement, the newsroom in Pittsburgh observed a moment of silence for the victims. At the Sun Sentinel, too, the staff took in the award in a sober spirit.

“We’re mindful of what it is that we won for,” Editor-in-Chief Julie Anderson said. “There are still families grieving, so it’s not joy, it’s almost … I don’t know how to describe it. We’re emotional, as well.”

So, too, at the Capital Gazette, which was given a special citation for its coverage and courage in the face of a massacre in its own newsroom. The Pulitzer board also gave the paper an extraordinary $100,000 grant to further its journalism.

“Clearly, there were a lot of mixed feelings,” editor Rick Hutzell said. “No one wants to win an award for something that kills five of your friends.”

The Annapolis-based newspaper published on schedule, with some help from The Baltimore Sun, the day after five staffers were shot and killed in one of the deadliest attacks on journalists in U.S. history. The man charged had a longstanding grudge against the paper.

The Pulitzers, U.S. journalism’s highest honor, reflected a year when journalism also came under attack in other ways.

Reuters won an international reporting award for work that cost two of its staffers their liberty: coverage of a brutal crackdown on Rohingya Muslims by security forces in Myanmar.

Reporters Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo are serving a seven-year sentence after being convicted of violating the country’s Official Secrets Act. Their supporters say the two were arrested in retaliation for their reporting.

Reuters also won the breaking news photography award for images of Central American migrants heading to the U.S.

The AP’s international reporting prize went to a team of journalists who documented atrocities and suffering in Yemen, illuminating the human toll of its 4-year-old civil war.

As a result of the work by reporter Maggie Michael, photographer Nariman El-Mofty and video journalist Maad al-Zikry, at least 80 prisoners were released from secret detention sites, and the United Nations rushed food and medicine to areas where the AP revealed that people were starving while corrupt officials diverted international food aid.

“This is a story that everybody was not really paying good attention, and we’re very happy to be able to draw some attention to it,” Michael said.

Images of the famine in Yemen also brought a feature photography award for The Washington Post. The Post’s book critic, Carlos Lozada, won the criticism prize for what the judges called “trenchant and searching” work.

In the U.S., journalists have been contending with attacks on the media’s integrity from the president on down. Trump has branded coverage of his administration “fake news” and assailed the media as the “enemy of the people.”

Monday’s wins by the Times and The Wall Street Journal and freelance cartoonist Darrin Bell may further anger the president.

The Times won the explanatory reporting Pulitzer for laying out how a president who has portrayed himself as a largely self-made man has, in fact, received over $400 million in family money and helped his family avoid hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes. Trump has called the Times expose a false “hit piece.”

The Journal took the national reporting award for its investigations of payments orchestrated by the president’s former lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen, to buy the silence of porn star Stormy Daniels and a Playboy centerfold. Trump has denied having affairs with them.

Bell, the editorial cartooning winner, called out “lies, hypocrisy and fraud in the political turmoil surrounding the Trump administration,” the Pulitzer judges said.

The Los Angeles Times took the investigative reporting prize for stories that revealed hundreds of sexual abuse accusations against a recently retired University of Southern California gynecologist, who has denied the allegations. The university recently agreed to a $215 million settlement with the alleged victims.

The local reporting prize went to The Advocate of Louisiana for work that led to a state constitutional amendment abolishing Louisiana’s unusual practice of allowing non-unanimous jury verdicts in felony trials.

ProPublica won the feature reporting award for coverage of Salvadoran immigrants affected by a federal crackdown on the MS-13 gang.

Tony Messenger of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch received the commentary award for his series of columns about poor people being thrown back in jail in Missouri because they couldn’t afford to pay the costs of a previous stint behind bars.

The New York Times’ Brent Staples received the editorial writing award. The judges said his writing about the nation’s racial history showed “extraordinary moral clarity.”

The journalism prizes, first awarded in 1917, were established by newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer. Winners of the public service award receive a gold medal. The other awards carry a prize of $15,000 each.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., argued Sunday that among the presidential candidates, he was the best Democrat to win back a string of Midwestern states from President Trump in 2020, claiming that the sitting president had told working-class families a “monstrous lie” by vowing to take on monied interests in Washington.

“Donald Trump has told literally thousands of lies since he began his campaign and since he has been in the White House,” Sanders told an estimated crowd of 4,500 at an outdoor rally in Pittsburgh. “But, the biggest lie that he told the people of Pennsylvania … was that he was going to stand up for working families and take on the establishment.”

Sunday’s rally wrapped up a weekend swing in which Sanders also held rallies in Wisconsin and Michigan. Voters in all three states backed Trump over Hillary Clinton in 2016, stunning Democrats who had seen them as part of a “blue wall” held together by urban African-American voters and traditionally liberal white working-class voters.

“We are going to win in Pennsylvania, we’re going to win in Michigan, we’re going to win in Wisconsin, we’re going to win in Indiana and Ohio,” Sanders promised his cheering supporters. “And, by the way, we’re going to win the election.”

The self-described democratic socialist said his political movement mirrored the labor movement, the civil rights movement, the women’s movement and the gay rights movement in showing that “real change never takes place from the top on down, always from the bottom up.” He recited a laundry list of policies — including raising the federal minimum wage, government-run health care and legalizing marijuana — that he claimed were described as “too radical” by members of the media and political establishment.

SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: WE NEED AN ECONOMY AND GOVERNMENT THAT WORKS FOR ALL, NOT JUST THE TOP ONE PERCENT

“Today, virtually all of those ideas are supported by a majority of the American people and they are ideas that Democratic candidates from school board to president of the United States now support,” Sanders said, noting that his insurgent campaign for the 2016 Democratic nomination had netted “more votes from young people than Trump and Clinton combined.”

Sanders also proudly noted that his supporters had campaigned successfully to change the party’s rules governing superdelegates at next year’s Democratic National Convention “and maybe ending a system in which one candidate had 500 superdelegates before the first vote was cast.” The Democratic National Committee voted last summer to prevent superdelegates from voting on the first presidential nomination ballot unless a candidate had enough votes from pledged delegates, who choose a candidate based on the results of the Democrats’ primaries and caucuses.

The Vermont senator also addressed his signature issue, vowing to health insurance companies that “whether you like it or not, the United States will join every other major country on earth and guarantee health care to all people as a right.”

“It is an international embarrassment that in America today we got 30 million people with no health insurance and even more who are underinsured with high deductibles and high co-payments and for all of that we end up spending twice as much per capita on healthcare as do the people of any other nation,” said Sanders, who warned his audience that “the insurance companies are getting nervous” about his message.

“They are prepared and will spend hundreds of millions of dollars to stop us,” he said, “but we are gonna win this struggle and we will pass a Medicare for All single-payer program.”

Johnny Bobbitt, Philadelphia homeless man involved in GoFundMe scam, sentenced to probation

A Philadelphia homeless man who conspired with a New Jersey couple to create a GoFundMe scheme that raised more than $400,000 was sentenced Friday to five years of probation and agreed to enter a drug treatment program.

Thirty-six-year-old Johnny Bobbitt Jr. pleaded guilty in March to conspiracy to commit theft by deception charges, admitting to helping Kate McClure and her boyfriend Mark D’Amico in their GoFundMe scam in November 2017, NBC News reported.

‘MODERN FAMILY’ STAR CALLS OUT ‘HATE TWEETS’ OVER SHARING GOFUNDME POST

Prosecutors said Bobbitt, a veteran who was homeless at the time, posed with McClure, who posted a fake story to GoFundMe in which she said she was raising money for Bobbitt after he generously gave her his last $20 when her car ran out of gas on the highway.

As part of a plea deal, Bobbitt will be sent to an inpatient rehabilitation center before his release and agreed to testify against McClure and D’Amico in the future. A New Jersey judge said Bobbitt will serve five years in state prison if he violates probation.

About 14,000 people donated almost $403,000 to the GoFundMe page, falling for the story. Bobbitt, who was homeless at the time, exposed the couple’s fraud when he filed a lawsuit against McClure and D’Amico in August, arguing they withheld funds and never cut him in on the deal.

McClure and D’Amico accused the homeless man of spending the GoFundMe money on family, drugs, a truck and a trailer. Federal authorities investigated the case, and prosecutors said the couple was experiencing financial troubles at the time and used the GoFundMe account as a scam.

Former Pennsylvania governor calls Green New Deal ‘aspirational’ but says details ‘don’t make sense’

Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell said Friday that the aspirational aspects of the “Green New Deal” are ok but warns that the specifics that some Democrats have championed “don’t make sense.”

“Anybody who’s got half a brain agrees that there is climate change and that human activity has caused it and we better do something about it or we’re going to be cooked or at least our children are going to be cooked and so the aspirational aspects of the Green New Deal are ok… but the specifics don’t make sense,” Rendell, also a Democrat, told Fox News. “They cost too much and they’re trying to achieve something in a shorter period of time than it’s actually physically possible.”

Rendell says while he gives credit to his party that the Green New Deal is a step in the right direction, it’s “not a fully articulated policy.”

“It’s got to be looked at as if it’s realistic and we’ve got to get down to the nitty-gritty,” he said.

Rendell says the 14-page, double-spaced, non-binding resolution that was authored by New York Democrat Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey, isn’t a piece of legislation.

“They haven’t thought out a lot of the stuff that’s in there,” Rendell said, pointing to a section that doesn’t want automobiles powered by fossil fuels.

“The electric car… where do they think electricity comes from,” Rendell asked.

He later added that despite his reservations about some of the far-left lawmakers in his party, he gives them credit for jumpstarting the process in Congress.

“Good lord,” he said. “It’s climate change. It’s global warming. We see it every day. The weather patterns are so much different than when I was a kid. We’re in trouble and we’ve got to do something about it. And if this can get the discussion going then I give them a great deal of credit,” he said. “But this is not a real plan.”

A lawyer for a New Jersey groom who allegedly groped an underage waitress at his own wedding reception last year has suggested a theory that proves his client is “an innocent man.”

Louis Busico, the attorney of 31-year-old Matthew Aimers, on Thursday claimed that the fact that his client’s wife was still with him proved the sexual assault allegations were false, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

GROOM SEXUALLY ASSUALTED WAITRESS AT WEDDING RECEPTION: COPS

“If he committed a crime, not even Dr. Phil could keep them together,” Busico said. “And the fact that they still are together shows that my client is an innocent man.”

The alleged incident took place in November 2018 at Aimers’ wedding reception at the Northampton Valley Country Club in Northampton Township, Pa. After a then-underage waitress spurned his alleged advances, she claimed he followed her into a bathroom, sexually assaulted her and exposed himself.

A judge on Thursday upheld all charges against Aimers, including indecent assault, indecent exposure, imprisonment of a minor, harassment and related counts, the Inquirer reported. The charges of simple assault, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest stemming from a drunken brawl with police later that night were dropped, according to Philadelphia station WCAU-TV.

Busico said his client “denies and rejects” the allegations made by the waitress, who has since turned 18, the Inquirer reported. Aimers’ wife, Kayla, supports her husband “150 percent,” the lawyer said.

Fox News’ Louis Casiano contributed to this report.
