A Pennsylvania mom faces charges of fatally shooting her children, including a female-to-male trans.

Krisinda Bright, 48, is accused of fatally shooting her 16-year-old bio daughter, Kiara Bright, a male-identified trans who went by the name Jeffery "JJ" Bright.

Friends say Kiara transitioned at age 11.

Bright also fatally shot her second daughter, Jasmine Cannady, 22.

Interim Police Chief John DeLuca told reporters that, after shooting her children, Bright called 911 and went outside to meet emergency responders and police, WTAE reported.

Bright told dispatchers she shot her children and that the gun she used was unloaded and on the dining room table.

She said she shot one of her children while she was lying in bed. Then she went downstairs and pointed the weapon at her second child, who pleaded with her, saying, "Please don't shoot."

Bright said the gun misfired, but she fixed the jam and then shot her daughter in the face. The child was still moving, so Bright went upstairs to retrieve another weapon before returning and shooting her again because she didn't want the child "to suffer," according to the police report.

Both victims were shot in the head and face, according to the complaint.

Bright is facing two counts of criminal homicide. She is being held without bond in the Beaver County Jail.

Essex County Jail

A New Jersey corrections officer confessed to killing two women because he was upset his Cougar girlfriend wasn't returning his calls.

John P. Menendez, 23, was charged with two counts of murder in the shooting deaths of his 40-year-old girlfriend, Anna Shpilberg, and her friend, Luiza Shinkarevskaya, also 40.

Police recovered a 9mm handgun registered to the former Hudson County corrections officer nearby, according to court documents obtained by the NY Post.

Police responding to 911 reports of gunshots on Tuesday found Shinkarevskaya dead with a gunshot wound to the head in a Jiffy's parking lot near Newark Liberty Airport.

While police were still at the scene, a bloodied Menendez approached them and confessed to killing Shinkarevskaya and his girlfriend, Shpilberg.

He said he shot Shpilberg, a dental hygienist, because he was angry she ignored his calls while on vacation with Shinkarevskaya.

"I can't believe I did this. Just arrest me, bro," he told police.

He then directed cops to a Mercedes-Benz C300 parked near Newark Penn Station. Shpilberg was found dead in the passenger seat with a bullet wound to the head, court papers say.

Menendez told police that both women were returning on a flight at the airport and that he was scheduled to pick them up, according to court documents.

Shpilberg's former fiancé, Fabian Goni, told police Menendez was controlling and regularly demanded she "report to him" on her whereabouts.

"He wanted texts and videos as proof of where she was," Goni said.

Menendez is being held without bond at the Essex County Jail.

Star Tribune

D'Zondria Wallace, 30, and her two children, La'Porsha, 14, and Ja'Corbie, 11, recently moved to St. Paul, Minnesota, hoping for a new start.

She'd broken off a relationship with her abusive boyfriend, TeKeith Syvone Jones, 26, after relaying concerns to her family about his increasingly violent behavior.

A neighbor's security camera caught Jones peeking through the window of Wallace's new apartment Saturday afternoon, about 30 minutes before the bodies were discovered.

Wallace had told relatives she was two months pregnant with Jones' baby, the Star Tribune reported.

"She was fearing for her life," her mother, Mary Wallace told the Star Tribune. She reportedly began seeing someone else in mid-January. "He was jealous."

A nephew later told police that Jones continued to come by the house even after the breakup and always carried a semiautomatic handgun, according to the Star Tribune.

The nephew recalled an incident in December when Jones broke in through a kitchen window, "swung her around," and accused her of seeing another man.

The next morning he fired a pistol at Wallace but missed. She never reported the incident to police.

On Saturday afternoon, a relative entered Wallace's apartment on the 700 block of Jessie Street and saw "blood everywhere."

Just inside the door, first responders found Wallace's teenage daughter, La'Porsha, mortally wounded on the floor. She had been shot 10 times.

Her mother lay dead on the sofa. She had been shot twice.

Medics found Ja'Corbie suffering from gunshot wounds. When they asked him who shot them, he responded: "Keith."

Ja'Corbie died hours later at a hospital.

A dying declaration is a statement made by someone with their dying breath. A dying declaration can be introduced in court as evidence in a murder trial. It holds as much weight as if the deceased complainant pointed out the defendant in the courtroom.

"I know that Ja'Corbie fought to stay alive to say it was his mom's boyfriend," said Wallace's cousin Jeanette Whitehall, who helped raise the kids for a year before Wallace could relocate to Minnesota.

"Now Coby can rest," Whitehall added.

A 23-year-old software engineer for Microsoft has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of his girlfriend.

King County prosecutors charged Ahmed Hassan Osman with first- and second-degree murder in the stabbing death of Nyaruot Chuol, 20, at an upscale apartment complex in the 24600 block of 64th Avenue South.

The coroner reported Chuol suffered multiple stab wounds to her neck, back and abdomen. Osman was arrested after a neighbor called 911 to report a disturbance on Sunday, Jan. 24.

Osman is also charged with the aggravated assault of Chuol's cousin in the second floor hallway. The victim told police that Osman fled to a nearby apartment.

Osman barricaded himself in the apartment and refused to come out until a SWAT team deployed tear gas canisters through a window.

Osman then exited apartment and was taken into custody. The cousin told investigators that Osman and Chuol were involved in a sexual relationship that deteriorated over the past weeks. She said Chuol had blocked Osman's number in her cellphone.

She said, on the morning of the murder, she and Chuol were at Osman's apartment drinking and smoking marijuana when Chuol and Osman got into an argument after she refused to have sex with him. Osman slapped Chuol who became enraged and the two lovers fought.

Osman ordered the two women to leave his apartment. Chuol then began breaking items in the apartment. She broke dishes and used a small knife to carve a television and a laptop.

The two women left the apartment but returned to retrieve Chuol's cellphone. A second altercation began and Osman pilled out a handgun and pointed it at Chuol's cousin's head.

He put the gun down and the cousin picked the weapon up and tucked it into her waistband.

The women left the apartment again and were waiting for the elevator when Osman emerged from the apartment with a large kitchen knife.

He stabbed Chuol in the abdomen and tried to stab the cousin but she blocked the knife with her arms. He stabbed Chuol again and again. She died before medics could save her.

Osman was hired by Microsoft directly out of college at age 21 and was recently promoted, according to the Seattle Times.

Osman is being held at the King County Correctional Facility in Seattle on $5 million bail. His bail was increased from $1 million after prosecutors learned he had access to considerable financial resources, according to the Times.

He had an annual salary of between $163,000 and $207,000. He also owned rental property in Kent and detectives found paperwork for a newly purchased Tesla.

His arraignment is set for Feb. 8 in the Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent.

A GoFundMe page raised over $7,000 for Chuol's funeral expenses.

At least one NFL player threatened to "go toe-to-toe" with disgraced ex-NFL player Chad Wheeler following his arrest on domestic violence charges.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Dez Bryant tweeted: "Chad Wheeler if I ever run across you We are going toe to toe... [sic]" Bryant added that he "wouldn't mind making the news breaking something across your f***ing head then ask you are you still alive?"

Wheeler was arrested on Jan. 23 and later released on $400,000 bond.

The Seattle Seahawks released Wheeler after prosecutors in Kent, Washington, formally charged him with first-degree domestic violent assault, domestic violence, resisting arrest, and unlawful imprisonment.

Wheeler, who is Caucasian, allegedly told the unidentified Black victim to bow down to him during a role playing exercise. When she refused, he beat her and strangled her until she lost consciousness. When she regained consciousness, she locked herself in a bathroom and called 911.

According to a police report, the victim said Wheeler was astonished that she was still alive after the beating he'd given her. "Wow, you're still alive?" he reportedly asked her while he calmly ate dinner.

A friend shared photos of the victim's injuries on social media, sparking a firestorm of public outrage.

Wheeler, 27, broke his silence on Twitter.com following his arrest, saying he had experienced a manic episode during the assault.

"Events happened over the weekend that transpired from a manic episode," Wheeler tweeted.

Seattle Seahawks lineman Chad Wheeler apologized profusely to his girlfriend after he was released by the team following his arrest for beating her into submission.

Prosecutors formally charged Wheeler with first-degree domestic violent assault, domestic violence, resisting arrest, and unlawful imprisonment.

Wheeler allegedly told the victim to bow down to him during a role playing exercise. When she refused, he beat her and threw her on the floor. When she regained consciousness, she locked herself in a bathroom and called police.

A friend who shared photos of the victim's injuries on social media, said Wheeler finished eating dinner while the victim lay unconscious on the floor.

In court documents obtained by TMZ, prosecutors wrote: "The defendant, who is physically conditioned and trained to compete at the highest level of professional sports, strangled, suffocated and beat the victim into unconsciousness -- twice -- both times leaving her for dead as blood poured from her nose and mouth, and into her stomach and lungs."

Wheeler broke his silence following his arrest, saying he had a manic episode during the assault.

"Events happened over the weekend that transpired from a manic episode," Wheeler tweeted.

"I am deeply sorry for the pain and suffering that I have caused to [the victim] and her family. I apologize profusely for the turmoil that I have caused to my family, teammates, fans and those closest to me. The most important thing right now is that [the victim] gets the care she needs and I get help. Both are happening.

"It is time for me to walk away from football and get the help I need to never again pose a threat to another. I cannot express my sorrow or remorse enough. I am truly ashamed."

The Seahawks, who originally said they were "gathering information" about the incident, released Wheeler from his contract and encouraged him to seek professional help.

"The Seahawks are saddened by the details emerging against Chad Wheeler and strongly condemn this act of domestic violence," the team said in a statement. "Our thoughts and support are with the victim. Chad is a free agent and no longer with the team."

She stopped short of filing a police report on T.I., but she did tag Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms in her Instagram post.

"LETS TALK! @keishabottoms YOU CANT HAVE A PERSON THAT HAS VICTIMIZED WOMEN SPEAK FOR US! Let's have a real TALK!"

Mayor Bottoms tapped T.I. to be part of her transition team when she was newly elected as mayor.

In a follow-up post, Sabrina said T.I. retaliated because she was "beating up" T.I.'s assistant who treated Tiny "like a slave."

There's an old Biblical phrase that goes, "Hell has no fury like a woman scorned."

Singer FKA Twigs is suing ex-boyfriend Shia LaBeouf to court over allegations of assault, sexual battery, and infliction of emotional distress.

The allegations come months after the couple split up and he reunited with actress wife Mia Goth earlier this year.

The British musician, real name Tahliah Barnett, filed suit in Los Angeles on Friday, Dec. 11, accusing LaBeouf of physically abusing her during their romance, which began in late 2018 and ended in 2019.

In the lawsuit, obtained by the New York Times, Twigs describes one attack occurring on Valentine's Day in 2019, when the Transformers star was driving recklessly, and reportedly threatened to purposefully crash the car with her in it.

Twigs said she escaped the vehicle when LaBeouf pulled over at a gas station. She said he pursued her, slammed her against the car, and screamed in her face before forcing her to get back in.

In a separate incident, the actor allegedly woke up in the middle of the night and choked the singer. She also accused him of paranoia and sleeping with guns.

Twigs is citing sexual battery in her legal action amid allegations suggesting LaBeouf knowingly gave her a sexually-transmitted disease, which Twigs believes he spread to at least one other women he had been intimate with.

She insists the lawsuit isn't about money: "I'd like to be able to raise awareness on the tactics that abusers use to control you and take away your agency," she told the New York Times.
