Accused Killer Can Wear Turtleneck to Hide Neck Tattoo A Kansas judge has ruled that an accused killer can wear a turtleneck sweater to cover his neck tattoo because his body can be used against him in court.

Lawyers for Jeffrey Chapman, 32, argued that jurors would prejudge Chapman if they were allowed to see the word "MURDER" that is tattooed backwards across his neck from ear to ear.

The Kansas man is in jail awaiting trial for a 2011 murder.

State law prevents a tattoo artist from going into a licensed jail facility to remove the tattoo.

The defense attorney and a Barton County District Court judge reached a compromise that would allow Chapman to wear a turtleneck sweater during his trial.

Chapman's trial is scheduled to start on August 18, 2014.

Temperatures often soar above 90 Fahrenheit (32 Celsius) in Kansas in August.

Chapman's lawyers also asked the court to order that the tattoo not be mentioned during the trial.

      Two Jacksonville, Fl. women, reportedly once friends, took drama that brewed online, offline, and in the end, a mother has lost her child, and the other will most likely lose her freedom. According to WJXT-TV, pregnant 23-year-old Markeisha Brooks went to the home of Virginia Wyche on Wednesday to speak to her about statements that were made on Facebook that she wasn’t happy with, as the women actually argued on the social media site the night before. It’s unclear whether or not Brooks was invited by her former friend to come by to settle things, or if she went solely in anger to confront Wyche. It’s also unclear what happened when she got there, but things escalated and got physical between the women. At some point in this melee, Wyche was able to get her hands on a gun, and she shot the pregnant woman in her abdomen.
      Video was actually taken of Brooks as she waited for the ambulance, and she was seen bent over, bleeding from her stomach, with individuals in the neighborhood coming to her aid, rubbing her back. The woman was taken to the hospital and is critical condition, but she lost her child. She was six months pregnant. As for Wyche, the 35-year-old woman was confronted by the victim at her mother’s home when she ended up shooting her. Wyche has been taken into custody and charged with murder. According to the New York Daily News, she is being held on $1 million bond. Her mother, Lillian Jordan, told WJXT that she couldn’t believe the news of her daughter’s arrest, saying that she must have been attacked or provoked because her kids weren’t raised to be have so recklessly.
      “My son called me and I was very disturbed about this because this is not the way I was raised, and they was not raised like that. Somebody had to provoke my child to anger, to do what she one. I don’t know if she was trying to defend herself, was they trying to jump on my child, I can’t say.”

      A special education teacher faces felony charges for allegedly forcibly performing oral sex on a teenaged boy inside of her Texas high school office.

      Saralyn Gayle Portwood was arrested on April 17 for suspicion of having an inappropriate relationship with a student. She's been suspended from Princeton High School pending the outcome of the investigation.

      In an interview with authorities, her 17-year-old alleged victim, who is not enrolled in special education classes, said that the 30-year-old teacher began harassing him at school earlier this year. She would compliment his appearance and inappropriately brush against him and touch him, he said.

      The student said that he told Portwood several times that he wasn't interested in a relationship with her, but that "she persisted, and he did not know how or who to tell." The unwanted attention would allegedly culminate in forced sexual contact, according to the Dallas Morning News:

      One day, the student said, he was called into Portwood’s office. Once he was there, she pushed him against a desk, pulled down his shorts and performed oral sex, according to the affidavit.
      Portwood is married to another teacher in the Princeton school district, and they have a son together, the newspaper reports.

      School district officials told CBS Dallas-Fort Worth that the allegations surfaced after teachers overheard some disturbing rumors.

      “It was just rumors by some kids talking, and some teachers overheard. So, when we found out that there truly was an allegation, we immediately called our local law enforcement,” Superintendent Philip Anthony told the station.

      If convicted, Portwood could face up to 20 years in prison.
