Teen rapper convicted of murder in Texas home invasion

A teen rapper in Texas was found guilty Friday in the death of a 21-year-old man during a home invasion robbery.

Taymor McIntyre, 19, who goes by Tay-K, was convicted by an Arlington jury of murder and aggravated robbery for his role in the July 2016 death of Ethan Walker in his home in Mansfield, southeast of Fort Worth.

Another person in the home was injured.

At the start of his trial, McIntyre pleaded guilty to two other counts of aggravated robbery related to the home invasion.

The man who shot Walker was sentenced last year to life in prison. McIntyre was charged with murder because he recruited the gunman and planned the robbery, Tarrant County prosecutors said.

The teen still faces a capital murder charge in Bexar County for the April 2017 killing of a man at a San Antonio Chick-fil-A, KDFW-TV in Dallas reported.

The killing triggered a nationwide manhunt. While McIntyre was on the run, his single “The Race” was posted to YouTube, and it made the Billboard Hot 100 after his June 2017 arrest in New Jersey.

A mixtape he created while in police custody called “Santana World” made more than $500,000, according to the news station. Walker’s family and the survivor of the home invasion are suing McIntyre’s record label for the tape’s profits.

He faces life in prison.

German woman caught attempting to purchase car with home-printed money

A German woman attempted to buy a vehicle from a car dealership in the southwestern city of Kaiserslautern Friday using counterfeit currency she printed off at home.

She carried a wad of €15,000 ($16,830) to the dealership in Kaiserslautern, only for her plan to backfire as she left the location in handcuffs and riding in the back of a police car.

MAN GETS 4-PLUS YEARS IN COUNTERFEIT SPORTING TICKETS CASE

Exposing the woman’s plan did not require keen investigative skills, after she opted to print the bogus 50 and 100-euro notes via a regular ink jet printer, according to German news outlet DW News.

When police searched the 20-year-old woman’s home in the nearby city of Pirmasens, 21 miles south of Kaiserslautern, they found the printer loaded with freshly printed “money” along with €13,000 worth of mock euros.

Germany’s Federal Criminal Police (BKA) states that “imitating money with the intention of putting it on the market” is punishable by at least one year behind bars. However, the state prosecutor has yet to determine criminal charges against the woman.

The BKA said that although professional forgers use highly sophisticated technology to print currency, amateurs can easily access counterfeiting equipment online and require “no special knowledge”. They add that the 50-euro note is the most counterfeited.

UK knife crime rises by 8 percent to record high as London mayor blames ‘austerity’ for sharp increase

The knife crime epidemic plaguing England and Wales has reached a record high in 2018-19 with such offenses increase by at least 8 percent, new figures show.

The data released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show that there were 43,516 police-recorded offenses involving a knife or sharp instrument, the highest figure since such records began in 2011.

BRITISH TEENAGERS SENT TO EAST AFRICA TO AVOID RISING UK KNIFE CRIME: REPORTS

The data doesn’t take into account the crimes recorded by Scottish authorities and Greater Manchester Police, which patrols parts of the 9th largest city in Britain, Sky News reported.

“The picture of crime is a complex one. Overall levels of crime have remained steady, but this is not the case for all types of crime,” said ONS’ Mark Bangs, adding that there were increases in “violent crimes involving knives and sharp instruments” and “fraud and overall theft.”

LONDON MAYOR APPEARS EXASPERATED ON KNIFE CRIME QUESTIONS, ROLLS EYES AT REPORTER

The increasing knife crime is particularly evident in London, where Mayor Sadiq Khan has been trying to contain the problem.

While politicians and experts have called for different policing, Khan decried the rampant knife crime as the “human cost of austerity.”

“The sad reality is the violence we’re seeing on our streets today is an appalling side effect of increasing inequality and alienation caused by years of austerity and neglect,” he said in public remarks earlier this week.

He added that there’s a “direct link” between poverty and violent crime, according to the data published the City Hall.

This year there have been at least 33 fatal stabbings in London, while last year, knife crime took the lives of 135 people.

The capital also saw 3,301 knife crime offenses in 2017/18. This is a massive 42 percent higher than in the year ending March 2011, Sky News reported.

Tennessee detective, boyfriend arrested after violent incident, allegedly involving a hammer

A Tennessee detective has been decommissioned after investigators said she and her boyfriend were arrested. This, on the heels of an alleged clash between the two that reportedly involved a hammer.

Deputies with the Cheatham County Sheriff’s Department arrested Metropolitan Nashville Police Department Det.  Megan Hoffman and her boyfriend, Jonathan Mahoney, both 34, on Tuesday after an alleged domestic assault.

Deputies said they were called to the couple’s home in Ashland City, a half-hour from Nashville, about 2:30 a.m.

TENNESSEE POLICE WARN NOT TO FLUSH DRUGS DOWN TOILET FOR FEAR OF CREATING ‘METH-GATORS’

Hoffman is accused of punching her boyfriend in the face during an argument. A responding deputy saw bruising on the right side of Mahoney’s face, according to an incident report obtained by Fox News.

Mahoney told deputies Hoffman “destroyed the house” during the fight, according to court documents. He also told deputies that video cameras are set up at the home.

According to court documents, deputies found debris all over a hallway leading to a bedroom. Once in the room, deputies said, they found a computer monitor that was “busted and inoperable.”

Deputies said wires had been ripped out of the DVR linked to the camera system and the DVR was broken, adding that “the bedroom was in complete disarray.”

“There was also a large hole in the bedroom door,” the incident report said.

Mahoney told deputies Hoffman caused all the damage “during her rage,” according to the report.

When deputies asked Mahoney to go into further detail about the fight, he reportedly declined to offer more information without a lawyer present.

Deputies said when they questioned Hoffman, she alleged that Mahoney had struck her with a hammer. She told deputies she wanted to go to the emergency room for treatment.

Greek man detained in US scientist’s murder in Nazi bunker on Crete

Police on the Greek island of Crete reportedly detained a man Monday in connection with the killing of an American scientist found dead this month in an abandoned bunker used by the Nazis during World War II.

The 27-year-old man held Monday was one of 10 people interviewed during the weekend as part of the investigation into Suzanne Eaton’s slaying, officials said.

Eaton, a 59-year-old molecular biologist at the Max Planck Institute in Dresden, Germany was last seen July 2 near the port of the Crete city of Chania.

US SCIENTIST WAS SUFFOCATED IN GREECE, BODY FOUND COVERED WITH BURLAP IN NAZI-ERA BUNKER

Police found her body last week in a man-made cave that had been used as a bunker during the Nazi occupation of Crete. The cave is located about six miles from where Eaton was last seen. She had been suffocated and the coroner ruled her death a “criminal act.”

Chinese billionaire Wang Zhenhua arrested over child molestation allegations

A prominent Chinese real estate developer is one of two people arrested over claims of child molestation, state media reported Thursday.

The Shanghai prosecutor’s office said in a brief statement that the Putno district branch had ordered the arrest of two people, whom they identified only by their surnames, Wang and Zhou. However, the Communist Party newspaper Global Times identified Wang as Wang Zhenhua, the former chairman of Seazen, one of China’s largest developers. Seazen announced Wang’s son, Wang Xiaosong, had replaced his father as chairman after the older man’s resignation “for personal reasons.”

“We, just like the public, believe that minors are the future,” stated Seazen in a lengthy apology. “Anything that harms a minor is a severe offense. Seazen absolutely supports and agrees with the authorities in handling this case.”

Also Wednesday, Shanghai police opened an investigation into allegations that a girl had been molested at a local hotel. The girl’s mother said Zhou, 49, had taken her daughter from Jiangsu province to Shanghai on June 30. Zhou surrendered to police on July 2, one day after Wang, 57, was placed under investigation.

The allegations received wide media coverage in China, including on national broadcaster CCTV, highlighting on what is believed to be a common but underreported crime affecting millions of children.

Under Chinese law, sexual assault on a child is punishable by up to 5 years in prison, although longer sentences can be issued for additional charges. State-run media in recent years has reported cases of children being attacked by teachers, relatives and neighbors, although prosecutions have been limited to just a few thousand cases per year due to a reluctance by children to report instances and a lack of resources in conducting investigations.

US scientist was suffocated in Greece, body found covered with burlap in Nazi-era bunker

An American scientist who went missing last week in Greece before she was found dead in an abandoned World War II bunker was suffocated, authorities said Wednesday as new details were revealed about where her body was discovered.

Suzanne Eaton, a 59-year-old molecular biologist at the Max Planck Institute in Dresden, Germany, was last seen on July 2 near the port of Chania on the Greek island of Crete. Colleagues at the conference had told authorities they believed she had gone for a run in the area.

Greek police discovered her body Monday in a manmade cave that was used as a bunker during the Nazi occupation of Crete, located about 6 miles from where Eaton was last seen.

Local police told the Greek Reporter that an examination of Eaton’s body determined she died as a result of suffocation.

“What is definite is that we are talking about homicide. Also, there was no sign of death by gun,” an unidentified official in the medical examiner’s office told the news outlet.

The 59-year-old’s body was discovered in a cave in a rural area near Chania, located on the westernmost side of Crete. Fire service rescue team leader Nikolaos Papaleonidas said the recovery came after an “extensive search effort,” and the bunker was located about 330 feet from a nearby road, according to Sky News.

Officials are not yet sure if the crime was committed at the scene, or if the 59-year-old was killed elsewhere and disposed of in the cave, Greek news outlet Ekathimerini reported.

Eaton, who worked at the Max Planck Institute in Dresden, Germany, had been attending a conference in Crete. The institute called her death a “tragic demise.”

Authorities had launched a major search for Eaton in rural areas near Chania, helped by members of her family and fire service rescuers from Athens.

According to a Facebook page set up by her family to raise awareness of her disappearance, some 70 others who were at the conference joined in with the search. Eaton, originally from Oakland, California, was the wife of British scientist Tony Hyman and the mother of two sons, Max and Luke, according to the institute. Hyman and his sons traveled to Crete upon news of her disappearance.

In a statement posted to the page, the scientist’s niece said she was “forever grateful for the support we’ve received from this global community of caring people over the last week.”

“We cannot comment on anything at this time, but I will post a message here when the time is appropriate,” Callie Broaddus said.

Indonesia woman faces jail time for recording boss’ lewd phone call, he is promoted

An Indonesian woman who recorded her boss’ lewd phone call to prove she was being harassed will serve at least six months in prison for distributing obscene material — meanwhile, her boss got a promotion.

Nuril Maknun, 41, worked as a part-time bookkeeper at a high school in Mataram, the largest city on the religiously conservative island of Lombok.

Her allegations against her boss, who goes by the single name Muslim, as is common in Indonesia, began in 2013 when he took over as principal at the high school she worked at.

According to the New York Times, Muslim made vulgar remarks against her and spread a rumor the two had been carrying on an affair.

PHILIPPINES SENATOR DEFENDS POLICE OVER TODDLER’S DEATH IN DRUG RAID: ‘S— HAPPENS’

Nuril complained multiple times of receiving lewd phone calls from her boss and, in one instance, recorded him using explicit language and hounding her to have an affair – all without his knowledge. She gave the recording to a third person and eventually distributed it on an electronic device.

When Muslim became aware of the recording, he filed a police complaint against Nuril for criminal defamation. She was arrested and jailed for a month.

Prosecutors then charged her with distributing obscene material.

Nuril was initially cleared of the charges of violating the country’s strict anti-pornography laws by distributing the recording in a bid to expose the man’s history of lecherous behavior.

Prosecutors appealed the verdict, however, and. on Thursday, the country’s top court reversed the decision and sentenced her to six months in prison. Nuril was also ordered to pay a $35,383 fine, Al Jazeera reported.

She told the New York Times on Friday that she was disappointed by the court’s “obvious injustice” in its decision.

“I, as a woman, should be protected, but then I was the one who became the victim,” Nuril told the Times. “People should know that when we get harassed, there is no place to take refuge.”

The Times reported that Nuril’s boss has never been punished for harassing her and instead has been promoted repeatedly.

President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, who recently won a second term in office, said earlier that Nuril could seek clemency from him if she did not find justice through a judicial review.

On Friday, the president told reporters that he would not comment on the Supreme Court ruling, but that Nuril should apply for amnesty as soon as possible so that his office could assume legal authority over her case.

“Since the beginning, my attention to this case has never diminished,” he said, according to the Times. “If it gets to me, then it will be under my authority, and I will use the authority I have.”

An online fundraising campaign has reportedly raised more than $26,000 to help pay her fine.

Meanwhile, Nuril said she is proud to fight for her “dignity as a woman” but questioned why she was going to jail when it was Muslim who made the obscene comments.

“Clearly the person has admitted that it was his voice, admitted that he was the one who called me, admitted that he was the one who said things that were inappropriate,” she told the Times. “Why can he just casually walk around, while I, as the victim, am the one being punished?”
