    A North Carolina sheriff investigating the murder of two teenagers found gunned down on a woodland trail has announced charges against a 17-year-old, and said the suspect - when arrested - would be charged as a juvenile. Lyric Woods, 14, and 18-year-old Devin Clark were last seen on Friday in Orange County, west of Durham. The bodies of the pair were discovered at the weekend on a woodland trail with gunshot wounds. On Tuesday, Charles Blackwood, the sheriff, said that the search for the suspect was continuing, but charges had been filed. They would initially be charged as a juvenile thanks to a 2019 law, which stated that 16 and 17-year-olds would avoid adult charges. If the person is then charged with first degree murder, the case would automatically move to adult courts. Lyric Woods, 14, (left) and 18-year-old Devin Clark were last seen on Friday.

He is condemned to start at the back of the grid after taking on his fourth power unit of the season, one more than is allowed under Formula One rules.

    A child bride who killed the man she was forced to marry when she was 15 is among three women executed in Iran for murdering their husbands this week. Soheila Abadi, now 25, was hanged in prison after she was convicted of killing her husband over 'family disputes' according to the sentencing courts.

    A New York judge has refused a request from the accused Buffalo gunman's legal team for a year to prepare a psychiatric evaluation, after they asked for more time to analyze his diary and assess his mental state. Payton Gendron, 19, is accused of murdering 10 black people in a supermarket on May 14, having driven three hours from his home in Conklin to a city with a large black community. Conklin's African American population is only around 6.5 percent, while Buffalo's is 35 percent - almost three times the U.S. average. Shortly before the attack he posted documents that outlined his white supremacist views and revealed he had been planning the attack for months. On Thursday, Gendron appeared in Erie County Court in Buffalo, where his court-appointed lawyer Brian Parker requested more time. Judge Susan Eagan declined the request, but did grant a 90-day extension for them to collect evidence. Gendron will be back in court on October 6.

    Maricopa County Attorney Rachel Mitchell directed prosecutors Tuesday to file a notice of intent to seek the death penalty against two Scottsdale-area adults who allegedly murdered an 11-year-old boy. The adults are Stephanie Davis and Thomas Desharnais, who were indicted in February on 11 felony charges including first-degree murder, child abuse, and tampering with evidence. The charges stem from events the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office dates back to 2019 when Davis and Desharnais allegedly inflicted bodily harm to a minor under their care. “As a community, it is our responsibility to protect and care for the most vulnerable in society, and this includes children. The protection of children has always been a top priority for me. This child’s suffering and death must be addressed and those responsible held accountable,” Mitchell said. “Seeking justice for this young boy whose life was cut short in an especially heinous matter is what prosecutors are called to do.” According to a fatality report from the Arizona Department of Child Safety (ADCS), the victim is 11-year-old Chaskah Davis Smith. “On January 30, 2022, the Department...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Mets reliever Yoan López had his three-game suspension cut to one game and was set to serve the penalty Friday night when New York played the Philadelphia Phillies. López was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse before the game and had to immediately sit out. Mets manager Buck Showalter said the suspension had been reduced. López had appealed after Major League Baseball ruled that he intentionally threw at Phillies slugger Kyle Schwarber on May 1, an inning after Mets star Francisco Lindor was hit by a pitch. Showalter was suspended one game for the incident. López was sent to the minors after the game. The 29-year-old righty has pitched twice in relief for the Mets this year, allowing three runs in two innings. In his first game of the season for the Mets in late April, López threw high and tight to St. Louis star Nolan Arenado after New York’s J.D. Davis was hit by a pitch. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

    CAIRO (AP) — An Egyptian court is asking the country’s top mufti, the highest religious authority for Islam, to weigh in on the case of a man accused of stabbing to death a Coptic Christian priest, the leading judge in the trial announced Wednesday. A decision from Grand Mufi Shawky Allam on whether the suspect should be given the death penalty and executed is a non-binding opinion, but it can significantly influence the court’s ruling. The 56-year-old priest, Arsanious Wadid, was killed at a popular seaside promenade in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria last month in an attack that shocked the Arab world’s most populous nation. The prosecution has sought the death penalty for Nehru Tawfiq, 60, charged with deliberately killing the priest and with the illegal possession of a knife used in the attack. Tawfiq’s trial began on Saturday before the criminal court in Alexandria. He appeared in the docks — which in Egyptian courtrooms are located in a caged-off section of the room — shouting “God is greatest” in Arabic, and attempting to recite verses...

    Gorodenkoff | Istock | Getty Images If you're happily saying "I do" this year, be aware that the IRS can be a real buzzkill. While many couples end up paying less in taxes after tying the knot, some face a "marriage penalty" — meaning they end up paying more than if they had remained unmarried and filed as single taxpayers. The penalty can happen when tax-bracket thresholds, deductions and credits are not double the amount allowed for single filers — and that can hurt both high- and low-income households.

    PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona’s nearly eight-year hiatus in using the death penalty ended with the execution of Clarence Davis for killing a college student 44 years ago, making him the sixth person to be put to death in the U.S. so far this year. Dixon’s death Wednesday for the 1978 killing of 21-year-old Arizona State University student Deana Bowdoin broke the lull in Arizona’s use of capital punishment caused by a 2014 execution that critics say was botched and the difficulty that state officials faced in sourcing lethal injection drugs. Dixon’s death appeared to track the state’s protocol, though the medical team had some difficulty finding a vein to administer the lethal drugs. They first tried his arms and then made an incision in his groin area. That process took about 25 minutes. After the drugs were injected, Dixon’s mouth stayed open and his body did not move. The execution was declared completed about 10 minutes after he was injected. Another Arizona death row prisoner, Frank Atwood, is scheduled to be executed on June 8 in the killing of...

    A man whose death sentence for killing a Missouri couple while robbing their home was overturned three times was scheduled to be executed on Tuesday. Carman Deck, 56, would be just the fifth U.S. inmate to be executed this year if his lethal injection goes ahead. His hopes for a reprieve were all but dashed on Monday when the U.S. Supreme Court turned aside an appeal and Republican Gov. Mike Parson declined Deck’s clemency request, though he could file new appeals. Deck, who was from the St. Louis area, was a friend of the grandson of James and Zelma Long and knew they kept a safe in their home De Soto, about 45 miles (72 kilometers) southwest of St. Louis, according to court records. In July 1996, Deck and his sister stopped at the home under the guise of asking for directions. Deck told a detective that he wasn’t surprised to be invited inside by the couple, who were in their late 60s. “They’re country folks,” Deck said, according to court records. “They always do.” Once inside, Deck pulled...

    McALESTER, Okla. (AP) — Anti-death penalty advocate Lea Rodger says she is keenly aware of the realities facing her and Richard Glossip, who she married this week inside the Oklahoma State Penitentiary where he sits on death row. Glossip, 59, already has narrowly escaped execution three times and could be the next man Oklahoma puts to death now that the state has lifted a nearly seven-year moratorium on executions put in place due to mishaps in his case and others. Rodger, 32, a paralegal who has spent more than a decade advocating for an end to capital punishment, says that’s one of the reasons she didn’t want to waste time marrying her new husband. “For Rich, surviving three execution attempts, possibly facing a fourth, the one thing he’s really taken away from that is: Don’t take anything for granted … really live in the moment,” Rodger told The Associated Press before they wed Tuesday in a small ceremony inside the Oklahoma State Penitentiary. “I think both of us do a good job at that, and that’s why it was important...

    As the Miami Dolphins await a decision from prime free-agent tackle Terron Armstead, they already have taken one step this offseason toward fixing a troublesome, concerning offensive line. Former Dallas Cowboys guard Connor Williams comes to Miami as one potential solution on a line that could probably use upgrades at four of the five positions. Because of this, it’s unclear if Williams will remain where he has spent most of his professional career, left guard, or if he ends up playing elsewhere for the Dolphins. Left guard seems like a natural fit, based on his experience and Miami’s makeshift use there last season of former left tackle Austin Jackson, a struggling 2020 first-round pick. “As of now, it is still really open,” Williams said in a Monday web conference with reporters. “After meeting the coaches and everything, they’ve seen my ability to play really any position. Obviously, most of my work in the league has been at guard and, at that, it has been at left guard and I feel most comfortable at left guard. But also, they understand that...

    After a process that took more than a year, Arizona’s Attorney General Mark Brnovich (R) is one step closer to resuming the use of the death penalty in the state. Friday reports said Brnovich requested execution warrants for convicted killer Clarence Dixon and Frank Atwood, but it’s a process that has been long in the making. Last year, Brnovich explained that process in a January 2021 press release. “The [Attorney General’s Office] is asking the Arizona Supreme Court to establish firm briefing schedules before filing the execution warrants to ensure the Arizona Department of Corrections, Rehabilitation and Reentry (ADCRR) can comply with its testing and disclosure obligations,” he said at the time. “This will guarantee strict compliance with the current lethal-injection protocol and a related settlement.” The Supreme Court agreed to the briefing terms, and now that they have been met, Brnovich is filing his warrants. Per those warrants, the inmates will be allowed to select death by lethal injection or cyanide gas. “Justice has been a long time coming in some of the most heinous crimes committed in our...

    PARIS (AP) — Captain Ludovic Blas played a part in both goals as Nantes beat second-tier Bastia 2-0 to reach the French Cup semifinals on Thursday. The midfielder drove a powerful shot straight down the middle after the Corsican side gave a penalty away inside the first minute. His cross from the right in the 71st then led to striker Randal Kolo Muani’s ninth goal of the season. Nantes will face last year’s runner-up Monaco while the other semifinal in early March pits fourth-tier Versailles against high-flying Nice. Nantes was once a powerhouse in French soccer and celebrated winning its third cup in 2000 and its eighth league title the following year. The club has won nothing since but coach Antoine Kombouare, a former Nantes defender, has brought much-needed stability back to the club. Nice knocked out cup holder Paris Saint-Germain on penalty kicks and followed up by routing Marseille 4-1 in the quarters. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

    BOSTON (CBS) – Gary Lee Sampson, who was sentenced to the death penalty in connection with the murders of two Massachusetts men and a third man in New Hampshire, has died in a prison facility. According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons database, the 62-year-old Sampson died Tuesday. Sampson was initially sentenced to death in 2003 for killing 19-year-old Jonathan Rizzo and 69-year-old Philip McCloskey. The decision was later overturned by a judge after finding a juror lied about her background. In 2017, a federal jury decided Sampson would receive the death penalty for Rizzo, but not McCloskey. Sampson was also serving a separate life sentence fore killing Robert “Eli” Whitney in New Hampshire. Prosecutors said Sampson tricked the carjack victims into thinking he would spare their lives but then stabbed them more than a dozen times, slit their throats and left them to die in the woods.
    States and the federal government carried out 11 executions this year, the fewest since 1988, as support for the death penalty has continued to decline.  That's according to an annual report on the death penalty released Thursday, which was also sharply critical of the Supreme Court and its role in green-lighting executions. Three of the death sentences were carried out in January during an unprecedented run of federal executions that ended days before President Donald Trump left office. Annual executions have steadily declined since peaking at 98 in 1999.  Pandemic-related disruptions partly accounted for the low number of executions this year — though 2021 marked the seventh consecutive year when there were fewer than 30 executions and fewer than 50 new death sentences, the report said.  This March 22, 1995, photo, shows the interior of the execution chamber in the U.S. Penitentiary in Terre Haute, Ind.  (AP/Chuck Robinson) OKLAHOMA INMATE EXECUTED FOR 1985 SHOOTING DEATH  The federal death penalty was put on hold in June by Attorney General Merrick Garland, well short of the permanent abolition activists hoped for...
    ENGLAND legend John Barnes has been banned from driving after being caught speeding in his BMW with an expired licence. The 58-year-old former footie ace has been slapped with a red card after travelling at 47mph in a 40mph zone on the A540 near Neston, Wirral, on April 7 this year. 1Former footballer John Barnes, 58, has been banned from drivingCredit: PA Chester Magistrates Court heard that Barnes' driving licence had expired at the time of the offence. Both of the ex-Liverpool player's driving offences were proved under the single justice procedure in August this year. It allows those charged with minor criminal offences to have their case decided by a magistrate without having to attend court. Barnes was handed a six-month driving ban on Monday and received an automatic disqualification due to his repeat offending. He was also fined £750 and was ordered to stump up £110 for prosecution costs as well as a £75 victim surcharge. There was no separate penalty for driving with an expired licence.

    An illegal alien has finalized his guilty pleas for murdering four Americans in Nevada in 2019, avoiding the death penalty. Wilbur Ernesto Martinez-Guzman, a 20-year-old illegal alien from El Salvador, was charged with murdering 56-year-old Connie Koontz, 74-year-old Sophia Renken, 81-year-old Gerald David, and his 80-year-old wife, Sharon David, between January 10 and 15 after prosecutors said he was looking to steal money from his victims to buy more meth. Though the state of Nevada had sought the death penalty against Martinez-Guzman, his defense argued that he was “mentally disabled” and thus ineligible for the death penalty. Gerald David, Sharon David (pictured left), Connie Koontz (pictured top right), and Sophia Renken (pictured bottom right). (Photos via Facebook) Last month, Washoe County District Attorney Chris Hicks and Douglas County District Attorney Mark Jackson announced that Martinez-Guzman would be pleading guilty to all four murders, as well as pleading guilty to related burglary and firearm charges. In return, Martinez-Guzman is receiving a sentence of life in prison. This week, Martinez-Guzman finalized the guilty pleas by admitting to murdering Koontz and Renken, in addition to the Davids. In January 2019, days after New...

    John Maron Grant Oklahoma has a long and horrendous history when it comes to lethal injections of its death row inmates. The latest incident is extraordinarily alarming.  Thursday, as John Marion Grant, 60, was strapped to an execution gurney, and the first dose of the sedative midazolam began to course through his veins, his body started to convulse, and then he began to vomit. Members of the execution team cleaned him up, but according to Associated Press, before raising the curtain for witnesses to view the execution, Grant could be heard yelling, profanities, and, “Let’s go! Let’s go! Let’s go!”  AP reporter Sean Murphy observed Grant’s execution at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary. Murphy says Grant’s body jerked nearly two dozen times before he began to throw up. Grant was declared unconscious about 15 minutes after the first drug was delivered, and died about six minutes later at 4:21 p.m.  Robert Dunham, executive director of the nonpartisan Death Penalty Information Center told AP that Grant’s reaction to the drugs was rare. “I’ve never heard of or seen that.” He described it as “notable...
    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Iran executed over 250 people, including at least four child offenders, in 2020 and so far this year has carried out 230 executions that included nine women and one child who was executed in secret, the U.N. independent investigator on human rights in Iran said Monday. Javaid Rehman told the U.N. General Assembly’s human rights committee that Iran continues to implement the death penalty “at an alarming rate” and said “the absence of official statistics and lack of transparency around executions means that this practice escapes scrutiny resulting in serious abuses preventing accountability.” According to Amnesty International, Iran was the top executioner in the Middle East last year, accounting for more than half the region’s 493 executions, followed by Egypt, Iraq and Saudi Arabia. Amnesty’s annual figures exclude China, where executions believed to number in the thousands are classified as a state secret, and omit executions from some countries marred by conflict like Syria. Rehman said his latest report highlights serious concerns over the grounds Iran uses for imposing the death penalty, such as “vague national...

    SALZBURG, Austria (AP) — Salzburg’s young squad took a big step closer to reaching the Champions League knockout stage with a 3-1 win over Wolfsburg on Wednesday. Noah Okafor scored twice after 19-year-old forward Karim Adeyemi netted early to put the Austrian team on course for victory as it bids to reach the knockout round for the first time. Less than three minutes into the game, Germany international Adeyemi scored his third goal of the group stage, showing off his pace on the counter to beat defender Kevin Mbabu to a pass and sprint into the penalty area before scoring past Koen Casteels in the Wolfsburg goal. That was Salzburg’s first goal from open play in this year’s Champions League after all of its previous three came from the penalty spot. Wolfsburg responded in the 15th when Lukas Nmecha got a glancing header on a corner to tuck the ball inside the far post. The German team had only one more shot on target all game. Okafor, a 21-year-old winger, took full advantage of sloppy defending by Wolfsburg to score...
    MARTINEZ — Shell Oil has agreed to pay air quality regulators a $433,000 penalty for dozens of environmental violations at the oil refinery it once operated. The refinery amassed 44 violations between 2017 and 2019, largely for emitting excessive amounts of pollutants that studies have shown to cause long-term health problems. PBF Energy acquired the refinery from Shell in 2019 for $1 billion. It’s the second settlement reached in a month involving environmental violations at one of Martinez’s two oil refineries. Marathon Petroleum agreed last month to pay $2 million to the Bay Area Air Quality Management District over violations at its now idled Martinez oil refinery, previously operated by oil company Tesoro. Earlier this year, the air quality district voted to require refineries to dramatically reduce air pollution by upgrading their technology. The latest settlement will pay for future inspections and enforcement of environmental regulations, the air quality district said. “Ensuring that we all have clean air to breathe is the Air District’s top priority,” Jack Broadbent, the district’s executive officer, said in a written a statement. “This settlement...

That changed in the third quarter of the contest, though, when referee Land Clark threw a flag on Colts linebacker Darius Leonard for a hit on the elusive signal-caller.  Jackson expressed his gratitude while speaking with reporters Wednesday.  "Mr. Clark, I appreciate that call," Jackson said. "I remember his name."  The 2019 MVP continued: "That was a pretty dope call and it was fair, too. He did hit me in the face. It wasn't like it was no BS call or nothing like that.

As SunSport reported earlier this week, the world champion risked being bumped to the back of the grid for taking a new power unit in the back of his Mercedes. 2F1 Championship leader Lewis Hamilton believes he needs to start just outside the top 10 to keep alive his victory chances in IstanbulCredit: Alamy 2Brit Lewis Hamilton was fastest in practice but took a 10-place grid penaltyCredit: AFP F1 rules allow drivers to use three engines, plus their components, during the course of a season.

    WAVERLY, Ohio (AP) — Attorneys for an Ohio man charged in eight slayings want the aggravated murder charges and the possibility of a death penalty to be dismissed because they say prosecutors now have information indicating he didn’t kill anyone. George Wagner IV, his parents and adult brother were charged in the 2016 Rhoden family shootings near Piketon in southern Ohio. In a court filing Friday in Pike County, lawyers for the 29-year-old Wagner questioned the fairness of proceeding with the capital case when recent information turned over by prosecutors indicates Wagner didn’t kill the victims. His brother, Edward “Jake” Wagner, pleaded guilty earlier this year and admitted fatally shooting five people. Prosecutors said Jake Wagner gave a full account of what happened and led them to additional evidence. His mother, Angela Wagner, pleaded guilty this month to helping to plan the slayings, and prosecutors said she gave them new information. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to drop aggravated murder charges against her. Those plea deals include agreements to testify against the remaining defendants — George Wagner IV and his father,...
    Florida prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for a former Marine sharpshooter who allegedly broke into the home of an innocent family earlier this month, murdering four people, including a 3-month-old boy in his mother’s arms, under the delusion that the victims were child sex traffickers. In its notice of intent Friday, the State Attorney's Office for the 10th Judicial Circuit described several aggravating factors that could justify the death penalty for 33-year-old Bryan Riley of Brandon, The Ledger reported.  During the early morning hours of Sept. 5, Riley went into two different homes on the same property off of North Socrum Loop Road in north Lakeland and shot and killed a 62-year-old woman, a family dog, a 26-year-old woman, her 3-month-old baby boy whom she was holding at the time, and the woman's 40-year-old boyfriend, Justice Gleason, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office said in a previous statement.  Riley also shot an 11-year-old girl multiple times. She was critically injured but survived.  MARINE HAS ‘ZERO REMORSE; OVER SLAIN FLORIDA FAMILY, ’TORTURED' GIRL IN DELUSIONAL RESCUE OP: SHERIFF Gleason's family gave...
