Accused Parkland Shooter Charged With 17 Counts Of Murder: Update

PARKLAND, FL — As investigators attempt to make sense of Wednesday’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Nikolas Jacob Cruz has been formally charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.

Seventeen people were shot to death and numerous others injured Wednesday after Cruz, a former student who was expelled last year, allegedly opened fire marking a horrific and sadly familiar episode of school violence, according to law enforcement and school officials.

Lori Alhadeff, the mother of a 14-year-old girl, who was killed in the attack, was trying to make sense of the tragedy on Thursday as she pleaded on CNN for President Trump to take action.

“How do we allow a gunman to come into our children’s school? How do they get through security? What security is there? There’s no metal detectors,” she said, issuing her plea directly into the

Man accused of stabbing sister to death in Dunedin says he bought plane ticket to Mexico

DUNEDIN, Fla. (WFLA) – Deputies say a man who killed his sister by stabbing her more than a dozen times in Dunedin turned himself in at a hospital in Georgia Sunday night.

Sheriff Bob Gualtieri says 39-year-old Christopher Horan went up to a police officer in the parking lot of a hospital in Macon and said he killed his sister at her apartment.

“Horan informed the officer that he had purchased an airline ticket to Mexico after killing his sister but ended up in Macon, Georgia. We’re still not clear exactly why he ended up in Macon,” the sheriff said.

The officer in Georgia called deputies in Pinellas County, who checked the woman’s apartment at the MacAlpine Place apartment complex on Duncan Loop North in Dunedin.

They found 42-year-old Leanna Horan dead inside. Sheriff Gualtieri says she had been stabbed “well over 20 times in her head, neck and back.” Knives used to attack

Trial begins for man accused of killing girlfriend’s abuser

ZACHARY – Opening statements began Monday in the Jace Crehan murder trial. He’s accused of the 2015 murder of Robert Noce, the man convicted of molesting his girlfriend.

“I want you to think about choices and I want you to think about consequences,” was the opening line for the prosecution.

Meanwhile, Crehan’s defense team compared his case to a modern-day Romeo and Juliet. Crehan and his lover, Brittany Monk, are both charged in Noce’s death, however she pleaded guilty to manslaughter, a lesser charge.

They’re accused of killing Noce and stuffing him inside a barrel.

Monk was repeatedly sexually abused as a child by Noce, according to the prosecution and court records. He was sentenced to five years probation for abusing Monk, one month before he was found dead, inside of a barrel at his home.

No bail for Revere man accused of brutally murdering beloved school teacher

BOSTON (WHDH) – A Revere man accused of brutally murdering his wife, a beloved school teacher in Lynn, was ordered Tuesday held behind bars without bail at his arraignment in Boston’s Suffolk Superior Court.

Andrew MacCormack, 29, pleaded not guilty to a charge of first-degree murder in the death of his wife Vanessa MacCormack, 30. Family members and loved ones packed the courthouse on behalf of Vanessa as prosecutors detailed the motivation behind the alleged killing.

“It followed increasing conflict in the marriage. Externally, to most people, things looked good. They had a nice house, a baby daughter and they both had steady work,” prosecutor Ian Polumbaum said.

Vanessa was found dead on a Saturday afternoon in September inside the couple’s home on Grand View Avenue in Revere. Prosecutors said Vanessa had been strangled, stabbed several times and suffocated with a trash bag.

“The medical examiner’s opinion was that a combination of all these different
