Closing arguments delivered in trial of man accused of murdering neighbor

KALAMAZOO, MI  — Todd Maneke was desparate for crack cocaine and out of options when he went to Alfred Minka’s house in August 2013 in search of money and a car, Kalamazoo County Assistant Prosecutor Steven McLaughlin said.

There, McLaughlin said, Maneke hit Minka on the left side of the head with a hammer, took money out of his wallet and found his car keys. Then, realizing what he had done, he went back and beat Minka several times on the left side of the head, breaking the bones of his skull. Maneke then took Minka’s car to buy crack cocaine before parking the car in Minka’s garage and going back across the street to his home, McLaughlin said.

McLaughlin said Maneke didn’t mean to kill Minka when he first struck him, but then realized what he had done.

– Put aside the alleged murder of his mother and the rest of March 20, 2017, was pretty mundane for Josh Carmona, according to new court documents.

Detectives say Josh Carmona used a baseball bat and a butcher knife to kill his own mother, Tara D’Angelo on her 39th birthday. He then went on with his chores – picking up his half sister at daycare and driving her to a friend’s house, according to the documents.

Hillsborough sheriff’s investigators say he called his girlfriend and a friend and told them he had killed someone and was going on the run,

Accused triple killer a ‘failure and coward,’ Crown says in closing

Ian Bush is a failure and coward who attempted to rewrite his own sorry history by tying up and murdering three people, a Crown prosecutor alleged in his closing arguments to a jury Monday.

Bush is on trial for three counts of first-degree murder in the slayings of retired tax court judge Alban Garon, his wife, Raymonde Garon, both 77, and their neighbour Marie-Claire Beniskos, 78. The three seniors were killed in the Garons luxury condominium on Riverside Drive on June 29, 2007.

In his closing address to a jury, prosecutor James Cavanagh argued that the accused killer was disgraced and humiliated in front of his family when it was revealed he owed his mother $60,000. Bush was angry at Revenue Canada for holding back money he thought he was owed when he decided to lash out at those he held responsible, said Cavanagh.

Cavanagh alleged thats when Bush plotted the murder of
