gay man kills wife

The Supreme Court ruled on two cases today that will change the way traditional marriage has been defined for ages. The SCOTUS judges voted to strike down key provisions in the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and the voter-backed law that bans gay marriage in California.

In a 5-4 decision, the supreme court ruled that gays married in states where gay marriage is legal can collect federal benefits in all states — except Utah, which refuses to recognize gay marriage.

The supreme court avoided ruling on the issue of gay marriage altogether. Which means 36 states can still ban gay marriage.

On Prop 8, the Supreme Court ruled that the state of California can vacate and remand the decision, essentially ignoring voters who disapproved of gay marriage.

Meanwhile, here’s an article that you won’t hear much about in the mainstream media: a gay man and his brother have been charged with killing a woman to cash in on her insurance policy.

Update: Earlier I noted that gays who marry in states where gay marriage is legal will be recognized in all states as a result of today’s supreme court ruling. That was incorrect. States where gay marriage is not legal do not have to recognize gay marriages performed in other states.

Thieves Stole Rolex Watches Worth Nearly $1M

Atlanta Police are on the lookout for 6 brazen thieves who robbed the Mayors Jewelry store in Lenox Square Mall on Friday afternoon in upscale Buckhead.

Police say one man stood lookout while 5 casually dressed men entered the jewelry store on the upper level of Lenox Square Mall. Footage from Mayors security cameras shows the men loitering around the center island where pricey diamonds are on display.

The men then drifted over to the Rolex case at the back of the store. Two of the men produced hammers and smashed the glass cases, grabbing Rolex watches priced upwards of $100,000 a piece. Police estimate the thieves snatched $940,000 worth of Rolex Watches in 30 seconds.

“This was well-coordinated and thought-out,” Sgt. Greg Lyon told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “They had seconds to commit this and get away.”

Tajreed rich mugshot

A Minneapolis father returned home early and caught 41-year-old Tajreed Rich naked with his 17-year-old daughter, UK’s Daily Mail reports.

The father, who is not being identified, told police he returned home early and heard strange noises coming from his daughter’s bedroom. When he entered the bedroom he found Rich standing naked over his daughter who was also naked on her bed. Rich was later arrested after the girl’s family reported him to police.

The father told police he recognized Rich who works as a hall monitor at Robinsdale Cooper high school in Minneapolis.

The girl told police she had sexual intercourse with Rich twice — at his home and at hers. Rich also said he slept with the girl twice — without condoms both times. He added that he knew the girl was “a vulnerable student” and he felt remorse for taking advantage of her vulnerability. Rich, who had counseled students about relationships, had previously helped coach a cheerleading squad at a different high school.

School is closed for the Summer, but a voice mail was sent out to parents informing them of Rich’s arrest. Rich worked at the school for 2 years prior to his arrest.

A family member at Rich’s North Minneapolis home spoke with FOX9 News and described the situation as “a nightmare.” The family member said Rich had two daughters and a son who graduated from the same high school as the girl.

The age of consent in Minneapolis is 16, but the prosecutor’s office is charging Rich with abusing his position of authority.

“He’s 41, she’s 17 … He’s a hall monitor. I mean, the charge here is a position of authority,” said County attorney Mike Freeman. “I think parents have a right to expect when their kids are at school that people employed at that school are not going to mess with their daughters, or sons, for that matter,” he told the StarTribune.

He added: “[It’s] a tragedy for any father [who] comes home and finds his daughter in bed with another man”

Rich faces 15 years and a $30,000 fine if convicted.

    Texas Jury Acquits Man Who Killed Escort

    A Texas jury acquitted a john who shot and killed his escort because she refused to have sex with him.

    The jury found that Ezekiel Gilbert was justified in killing Lenora Ivie Frago, 21, on Christmas Eve 2012, because he paid her $150 for her escort services and she refused to return the money after denying his request for sex.

    Gilbert’s lawyer cited a broad Texas law that allows for “deadly force” to “retrieve stolen property at night.”

    Gilbert contracted Frago’s services though an ad on Craigslist.

    NJ Socialite Jumped by 10 Prostitutes A South Jersey socialite on vacation in South Beach was jumped by 10 prostitutes who thought she was selling her goodies on their turf.

    The attack on Anna Burgese took place Jan. 19 at the plush, five-star W Hotel — and now Burgese is suing the hotel for millions.

    According to a report in the Miami Herald, Burgese was minding her own business when as many as 10 prostitutes ganged up on her in the W Hotel lobby.

    The petite mom, who is 5-foot-1 and 105 lbs., was tackled to the ground and suffered a scrape on her knee and a bloody lip, according to the police report obtained by The Miami Herald.

    Instead of helping her to catch the hookers, Burgese claims that the “prostitute-friendly” hotel hailed cabs for the women to aid in their escape.

    Shoplifter runs over her son

    A Macon woman is in police custody after she ran over her 4-year-old son in the parking lot while fleeing the Houston County Galleria in Centerville.

    The tragic incident happened on Thursday night, when a Belk loss prevention officer observed Arkebia Albury, 25, shoplifting inside the store.

    The security officer followed Albury and her children, ages 2 and 4, into the parking lot, according to a report on Macon.com.

    When he ordered her to stop, Albury jumped into her 2001 Toyota Camry and hit the gas, but only her 2-year-old had made it into the passenger side of the car.

    As the officer pleaded with Albury to leave the 4-year-old until an ambulance arrived, Albury got out out of the car and picked up the injured child.

    “She picks the little boy up and throws him in the car and drives off,” Centerville Police Chief Sidney Andrews said.

    Police caught up with Albury’s Toyota on Wilson Drive, near the mall. Emergency rescue personnel arrived and transported the child to a local hospital, where he is listed in critical condition with severe head and internal injuries.

    “The child is in bad shape,” Andrews said. “It wasn’t looking too good.”

    In addition to the 2 toddlers, Albury’s sister and niece were also in the car. The women were not charged since they stayed in the car when the shoplifting occurred.

    Andrews said he wasn’t sure what was taken in the theft.

    “I believe it was a couple of T-shirts. I do know it was clothing. It was a misdemeanor amount,” he said. “This certainly was not worth it.”

    Albury is charged with with two counts of cruelty to children, reckless conduct and theft by shoplifting.
