    The following is an editorial from the Mankato Free Press. Hennepin County District Judge Peter Cahill, who is presiding over the state prosecutions of the former Minneapolis police officers involved in the killing of George Floyd more than two years ago, this week put off the last of those trials to next January. His stated reason for doing so has nothing to do with public access to the trial, but his order does buy time for the court system to get this aspect right. Jury selection was to begin next week for Tou Thao and J. Alexander Kueng, who are charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the Memorial Day 2020 death of Floyd, who expired with the knee of Derek Chauvin on his neck. Chauvin has already been convicted of murder. Another officer, Thomas Lane, pleaded guilty last month. Article continues after advertisement Cahill’s ruling, released Monday, said Lane’s plea deal — and federal convictions of all four on charges of violating Floyd’s civil rights — created “a reasonable likelihood of an unfair trial” were...
    THE Staircase mystery continues to grip the world as theories spiral over the final moments of Kathleen Peterson, who was found dead in a pool of blood in 2001. Novelist Michael Peterson was convicted of killing Kathleen, his second wife, after her body was found at the bottom of a dimly-lit staircase in the North Carolina mansion they shared. 10Todd Peterson (pictured with his late mother Patricia) spoke out about the case in a since-deleted video on social mediaCredit: Instagram 10Michael Peterson spent eight years behind bars for the murder of Kathleen before a judge ordered a retrial in 2011 because of unreliable testimony from an expertCredit: Getty 10The staircase where Kathleen Peterson was found dead on Dec. 8, 2001 is seen aboveCredit: Netflix Michael, who has maintained his innocence, spent nearly a decade behind bars after being convicted of Kathleen's murder in 2003.

    MARTINEZ — When 14-year-old Suzanne Bombardier arrived at her sister’s Antioch apartment to babysit her nieces on June 21, 1980, she brought a sewing machine along with her overnight bag. Suzanne’s plan was to sew clothes for Barbie dolls, make dinner, put the kids to sleep, then watch TV until she fell asleep while her sister, Stephanie Mullen, returned from working a night shift at a local Mexican restaurant and bar called Chichén Itzá. Instead, Suzanne disappeared, sparking a four-day search until her body was discovered along the Antioch River. She’d been stabbed once in the chest. The case went cold until December 2017, when a twice-convicted sex offender named Mitchell Lynn Bacom was linked to the crime through DNA. Now, four years after Bacom’s arrest and nearly 42 years after Suzanne’s death, Bacom has gone before a Contra Costa County jury. The very first prosecution witness was Mullen, the last of Suzanne’s loved ones to see her alive and an acquaintance of Bacom, who dated him briefly. Mullen recounted her final interaction with her sister: She was invited to...
    Just before 3pm on Tuesday, Prince Andrew will log in to his computer at Royal Lodge, his 30-room mansion in Windsor Great Park, and click on an internet link that has been emailed to him by his lawyers. Seconds later, via an online video stream, the Duke will be staring into the eyes of Judge Lewis A. Kaplan, a grizzled legal veteran in New York in whose hands the fate of the Queen's second son will rest. On both sides of the Atlantic the stakes could not be higher. The beleaguered Prince is desperately fighting a civil lawsuit filed by Virginia Roberts who alleges she was raped by him when she was the teenage 'sex slave' of paedophile Jeffrey Epstein. During this week's hearing – precisely 7,600 days since the first of three occasions on which Ms Roberts claims she was forced to have sex with the Duke – Andrew's legal team will try to persuade Judge Kaplan that the case should be thrown out. If their bid fails, Andrew faces the unimaginable prospect of a public trial where he would...

    The judge presiding over the Kyle Rittenhouse trial has been slammed as a racist and had his life threatened in a torrent of abusive and menacing emails, letters, postcards and faxes received by Kenosha County Courthouse and seen by DailyMail.com DailyMail.com has reviewed the hundreds of offensive communications sent to Judge Bruce Schroeder, and today we can reveal the extraordinary outpouring of vitriol that the high-profile trial has inspired. One email, sent Wednesday, reads simply, 'Wow way to name a white skinhead hot head to be a judge. No wonder they burn down your city.' Others calls for the 'racist' judge, the longest serving in the county, to be dismissed and disbarred. One addressed to 'Your Honor' reads, 'I didn't know that under your black robes of justice you wear a white robe of the klan. There is no way a fair trial can be heard under your supervision. Better yet, resign.' On Thursday Judge Bruce Schroeder revealed that he had been sent offensive emails during the trial, some calling him a racist One email addressed to 'Your Honor' reads,...
    Kyle Rittenhouse will begin an expected two-week long homicide trial Tuesday after jury selection was finalized Monday night. Rittenhouse, 18, is on trial for killing two people after opening fire on Black Lives Matter protesters with a semi-automatic rifle at a demonstration in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August 2020.   Opening statements are set to begin Tuesday morning. The jury in the politically charged case must decide whether Rittenhouse acted in self-defense, as his lawyers claim, or was engaged in vigilantism when the then-17-year-old opened fire with an AR-15-style semiautomatic rifle in August 2020, killing two men and wounding a third. On Monday, at Kenosha County Courthouse, Rittenhouse was seen yawning and looking distracted during the all-day session that ran well past dark. Eventually, 20 people — 12 jurors and eight alternates — were selected from a pool of 179 potentials. The judge said he would decide at the end of the trial which ones are alternates and which ones will deliberate. The 20 consist of 11 women and nine men. Jurors were not asked to identify their race during the selection process, and...
    A 96-year-old former Nazi concentration camp secretary was allegedly informed 'down to the last detail' of every murder method used at the Stutthof camp, a court has heard.   Irmgard Furchner, who has been dubbed the 'secretary of evil', was wheeled into the courtroom by guards with a facemask and large sunglasses covering her face and a pink beret over her white hair on Tuesday. She is standing trial for complicity in the murder of more than 10,000 people at Stutthof camp in Nazi-occupied Poland between 1943 and 1945, a charge which she denies. Furchner was just 18 when she started work at the camp on the Baltic coast, and is the first woman to stand trial in decades over crimes connected to the Third Reich. She had knowledge of all of the horrific events at the camp due to her work for the commandment of the camp and was informed 'down to the last detail' about the murder methods practised there, prosecutor Maxi Wantzen told the court in the northern town of Itzehoe. He added that through her work as the...
    Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City beat Blackpool, from the English Second Division, 4-1 today in their last friendly before opening the 2021-2022 season on Saturday with the Community Shield, equivalent to the Super Cup, against the Leicester. The ‘citizens’, current champions of the Premier League, will face Leicester, winner of the last FA Cup at Wembley. City have played three friendlies, all three behind closed doors at the Academy Stadium within their facilities, where they have played their pre-season stage, and all three have ended with victories. He had previously won two other Second Division teams: Preston (2-0) and Barnsley (4-0). Read also Like these two games, Sam Edozie, an 18-year-old English winger with Nigerian roots, scored a goal. Today, as against Barnsley, his goal served to open the scoring at pleasure in the 3rd minute when a rebound fell inside the area after a shot from Ikay Gündogan. Riyad Mahrez, who has also seen the goal in all three games this preseason, made it 2-1 in the 48th minute by culminating a counter to a pass from Fernandinho...
    Mustard gas is infamous for its use on the battlefield but its key chemical – mustard nitrogen – formed the basis of the earliest forms of cancer-fighting chemotherapy, in the 1940s. Those first chemotherapy drugs, while crude, worked by the same principle that chemotherapy does today: as toxins that turn the body into a hostile environment, in which cancer can’t survive. Thanks to that advance and those that followed many once-fatal cancers are now almost completely curable. Last week, at the American Society for Clinical Oncology’s annual meeting, a further wave of exciting cancer discoveries were unveiled.  There was good news for patients with some of the hardest-to-treat cancers, thanks to immune-system-enhancing medicines that help the body fight cancer, and even hope of a ‘vaccine’ for ovarian cancer. What’s more, these drugs often have far fewer side effects than traditional treatments, such as chemo. Here, we outline a handful of the most remarkable discoveries, and explain exactly what it will mean for patients today. Last week, at the American Society for Clinical Oncology’s annual meeting, a further wave of...
    Brandon Mitchell, a juror in the Derek Chauvin trial. Star Tribune via Getty Brandon Mitchell was on the jury that found Derek Chauvin guilty of George Floyd's murder. A recently-surfaced photo shows Mitchell attending a police reform protest and wearing a BLM shirt. Legal experts said they believe the photo will lead to further questions in court. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. A recently-surfaced photo shows one of the jurors on Derek Chauvin's trial wearing a Black Lives Matter T-shirt at a police-accountability protest last summer, possibly complicating the former officer's guilty verdict. The photo in question shows Brandon Mitchell, or juror 52, attending a rally in Washington, DC, in August, named the "'Get Off Our Necks' Commitment March." You can see it here. The protest was pegged to the 57th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s March on Washington, and the shirt Mitchell wears in the photo includes King's likeness and includes the words "Get your knee of our necks" and "BLM." Multiple people tweeted that this suggested Mitchell was impartial as a juror. —Greg...
    New York : It took six long years for the final verdict to be known on the blackmail case in which he is involved Karim Benzema. Next October the “Cat” will be tried by the court of Versailles and risks being sentenced to five years in prison. The 33-year-old player, and Real Madrid offensive figure, faces the crime of “complicity attempted blackmail” towards Mathieu Valbuena, who was his partner in the French National Team years ago. Said trial will take place between October 20 and 22 of this year in Versailles, France. If convicted, Benzema could serve a five-year sentence behind bars and a € 75,000 fine. The accusation against Benzema is based on allegedly having incited Valbuena, at the time, to have to pay a high figure in euros to some blackmailers who wanted to make public a sex video of him. In 2015 both would have met to discuss the matter and Karim would offer a person he trusted to help him resolve the issue. “Be careful Math (Valbuena), they are great criminals,” Benzema would have told...
    A convicted murderer currently behind bars for the rape and murder of a woman in 1980 will now stand trial for the death of his adopted daughter, 14, who he allegedly pushed down the stairs, dismembered and buried under a concrete slab back in 1989. Dennis Bowman, 71, from Michigan, appeared in Allegan County District Court Monday where a judge ruled there was 'ample evidence' to send him to trial over the slaying of Aundria Bowman, who he previously claimed had ran away from home. Bowman's wife Brenda Bowman testified that her husband confessed to their daughter's murder in a prison phone call last year where he told her Aundria's body had been 'right under your nose' in their backyard for the last three decades.  At the time of his confession, Bowman was behind bars for the rape and murder of 25-year-old Kathleen Doyle, the wife of a US Navy pilot, after new DNA genealogy analysis tied him to the 40-year-old cold case in 2019.  Investigators then discovered the skeletal remains of Aundria in a shallow grave in the yard of Bowman's home...
    Team Trump is defending this Following the latest bombshell news about Kevin McCarthy’s screaming match with Donald Trump on January 6, will House Managers request witnesses, or will today be the final day of the second impeachment trial for Trump? We’ll find out soon.  The impeachment trial is being aired on major television news networks and streamed on their websites. Daily Kos will have continuing coverage.
    Members of Congress stand to applaud Capitol Police officer Eugene Goodman You know what the Senate is doing next week? Nothing. They’re not in session next week. You know what they could be doing? Listening to witnesses. House impeachment managers could call witnesses in Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, and it wouldn’t take away one minute of productive time. They could call former chief of staff Mark Meadows and ask him to detail Trump’s actions on the afternoon of Jan. 6. They could call Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and have him discuss calls from both Trump and Lindsey Graham. There’s absolutely no reason they could not call Mike Pence and have him confirm that he, not Trump, finally authorized the use of the National Guard. They could call every member of the Trump White House who resigned following Jan. 6 and ask them a simple question: “Why?” And, based on a story repeated by CNN last night, they should call House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler. They could then recount the call, in which McCarthy reportedly tried to...
    Donald Trump's spokesman has denied that one of his lawyers described the former president as a 'f****** crook,' after The Philadelphia Inquirer on Tuesday recalled a conversation between Michael van der Veen and a client.  Van der Veen, 57, was one of three lawyers drafted in a week ago to represent Trump in his trial, alongside Bruce Castor and David Schoen.    On Tuesday van der Veen's local paper spoke to a former client, Justin Hiemstra, who recalled van der Veen calling the then-president 'a f****** crook'. Hiemstra pleaded guilty to attempting to hack into the IRS to access Trump's tax returns, in what van der Veen said was a schoolboy prank.  'I'm not sure if [those comments] were made to make me feel more comfortable, or if they were his actual opinions,' Hiemstra told The Philadelphia Inquirer.  'He definitely came off as fairly anti-Trump in the context that I knew him.' On Wednesday Trump's spokesman Jason Miller sent a letter from van der Veen denying Hiemstra's account. 'The comments about President Donald J. Trump being attributed to me by a...
    One of Donald Trump's three impeachment lawyers described the former president as a 'f****** crook' and sued him last year for attempting to disenfranchise Pennsylvania votes through baseless claims of mail-in voter fraud. Michael van der Veen, 57, was one of three lawyers drafted a week ago to represent Trump in his trial, and on Monday signed Trump's response to the House article of impeachment, alongside Bruce Castor and David Schoen. Castor and Schoen are his lead defense lawyers. All were hired last Sunday, after his five previous lawyers quit. Michael van der Veen is one of three lawyers defending Trump, alongside Castor and Schoen Trump, pictured in November, hired Castor, Schoen and van der Veen only a week ago The impeachment trial of Donald Trump on charges of insurrection began on Tuesday But van der Veen's previous remarks and cases are certain to raise eyebrows - especially given Trump's infamous demand for unswerving loyalty, and previous purges of anyone critical of him.

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that he hasn’t spoken to former President Donald Trump since Dec. 15, as reports said that McConnell has said he does not want to speak to Trump again after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. “The last time I spoke with him was the day after I declared that Biden had obviously won the election after the Electoral College on [voted on] Dec. 14. It would have been Dec. 15,” McConnell told reporters after a weekly GOP Senate lunch, The Hill reported. The Republican leader previously criticized Trump and his allies for spreading misinformation about the 2020 presidential election, saying his rhetoric provoked the mob to storm the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. McConnell was also asked how he would vote on the impeachment of former President Donald Trump, to which he did not give a direct answer. “With regard to impeachment issues, we’re going to be addressing that in great depth here beginning shortly. We’re going to be sworn in,” McConnell said. Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) speaks to members of...
    Ten years after Oracle first sued Google over the code in the Android platform, the two tech giants are finally facing off in the Supreme Court. Since then, there have been three trials and two appeals. Billions of dollars are at stake; many millions have been likely spent on a parade of seasoned litigators, expert witnesses, and bizarre trial exhibits intended to explain programming to non-technical juries. All this may be coming to an anticlimactic close on Wednesday morning, with a teleconference Supreme Court oral argument in the middle of a pandemic. When Google first developed Android, it decided to make the mobile platform compatible with Java. At the time, apps for the iOS environment were written in Objective-C, a language that was similar to the ubiquitous C but otherwise pretty much only used in the context of iOS app development. Apple had a significant head start in mobile. Google was aiming to make Android competitive by making the platform interoperable with Java, a popular programming language with a robust developer community. In order to do that, the company...
    Two ISIS fighters in detention overseas, who are known as one half of the 'Beatles' terror group, will be transferred to US custody in the coming days to be held for murdering American hostages in Syria and Iraq.  Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh are both British but they renounced their citizenship when they joined ISIS in Syria in 2014.  They murdered two dozen hostages including Americans James Foley, Steven Sotloff, Peter Kassig and Kayla Mueller, and at least eight other hostages from different countries, including the UK.  Foley and Sotloff were journalists working in the region and Kassig and Mueller were aid workers.   Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh, shown in March 2019, will soon be transferred from military custody in Iraq to the US to face trial  The accused claim they took part in torturing them and extracting information but that they did not take part in their executions.  They have been held in US military custody in Iraq since October 2019, but the families of their American victims have long pleaded for them to be brought onto...
    He participated in a “state-organized massacre”: the prosecution demanded three years in prison on Monday against a former SS concentration camp guard, tried in Germany in one of the latest trials of Nazi atrocities. Bruno Dey, 93, was an SS guard in April 1944 and April 1945 from the Stutthof camp, 40 km from the city of Gdansk, now in Poland. Aged 17 at the time of the crime, he has been on trial in Hamburg since October for complicity in the murder of 5,230 prisoners – 5,000 by “creating and maintaining life-threatening conditions”, 200 by gassing and 30 by bullet in neck. “There is no doubt” about the guilt of the accused, who “acted intentionally,” said prosecutor Lars Mahnke, who requested a three-year prison sentence, on Monday. The verdict will be released on July 23. Today a retired baker, pushed into a wheelchair by a nurse, he has been hiding his thick mustache face behind a cardboard shirt since the start of the hearings in the fall. Since the start of the trial, as during the investigation, Bruno Dey...
