    A former prosecutor said Tuesday that the Grand Teton County coroner's ruling that Gabby Petito's homicide was caused by strangulation will likely result in a first-degree murder charge for whoever is arrested in the 22-year-old's death.  "It almost always gets you first-degree murder because premeditation can be formed in an instant," Mark Eiglarsh, a criminal defense attorney and former Miami-Dade County prosecutor, told Fox News on Tuesday.  "You put your hands around the neck, that’s an unwanted touching, that’s simple battery or assault. Then you start to squeeze, your argument could be, ‘Well, I just wanted to scare them.' But then you contuse to affix pressure… There’s a certain amount of minimal time that someone needs to do that before somebody is dead," Eiglarsh said.  "I think there’s a strong argument that if premeditation didn’t exist prior to the physical contact, it certainly was developed at some point during the strangulation."

    Police have charged two men with first-degree murder over the shooting death of a two-year-old boy in Detroit.  Darius Evonte Lanier, 19, and Eugene Meredith Hubbard, 21, were arrested on Saturday in connection with the shooting on Interstate 75 last Thursday evening.  Brison Christian, two, was shot and killed while sitting in his car seat as his dad drove his older brother, nine-year-old BJ, home from basketball practice. BJ also suffered injuries in the shooting, but is expected to make a full recovery.  Prosecutors believe Lanier and Hubbard shot at the Christian's truck because it was a similar make and color to a vehicle they were intending to target.   'The Christian family were completely innocent victims. This was a family returning from a child sports activity that were mistaken for others because of their truck,' Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy said in a news release.  'Two-year-old Brison is dead and his nine-year-old brother barely escaped serious injury. A child is dead because adults decided that they were judge, jury, and executioner.'  In addition to murder, the Lanier and Hubbard were formally...
