Court hearing reveals brutal details in molester’s murder – WBRZ.com

BATON ROUGE – The ongoing trial in the 2015 murder of Robert Noce has revealed unsettling details from the night the convicted child molester was murdered.

In 2015, Noce took a lesser charge in the sexual abuse of Crehan’s girlfriend when she was a child.

Crehan and his lover, Brittany Monk, were both charged in Noce’s death, however she pleaded guilty to manslaughter, a lesser charge. Monk was repeatedly sexually abused as a child by Noce, her mother’s boyfriend, 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.

On Monday, Crehan’s defense likened their situation to a modern-day Romeo and Juliet. But the story of what allegedly happened on the night of Noce’s death is a far cry from the Shakespearean classic.

Monk, who gave birth to Crehan’s child in prison, took the stand Tuesday to testify against her

Another man’s confession, DNA evidence may pave way for new hearing in 1980 slaying

In 1980, someone killed the neighborhood Avon lady, Emily Leo, in Chester, Pennsylvania. By all accounts, it was a brutal crime — she’d been lured with the promise of a sale and then bludgeoned to death.

A year later, a Philadelphia jury convicted 24-year-old Leroy Evans and 16-year-old Anthony Jones of crimes in Leo’s death that included first-degree murder, robbery, and tampering with evidence.

But Evans’ defense attorney, Michael Malloy, said the evidence presented at trial never quite matched the stories told.

“As I began to read the trial testimony, certain facts made no sense,” he said. “First of all, why was there no blood present at a brutal, bloody crime scene.”

More than 30 years later, Malloy thinks he’s found that evidence — and that it clears Evans’ name. In 2016, Jones gave a nearly 70-page sworn statement, recanting his trial testimony that implicated Evans.

By lying to the jury, “I basically took

Deputy police chief’s arbitration hearing in Dennis Oland case delayed a year

Deputy Saint John police chief Glen McCloskey’s arbitration hearing in relation to alleged misconduct in the Dennis Oland murder case has been bumped back by more than a year.

McCloskey was scheduled to appear before an arbitrator appointed by the New Brunswick Police Commission on Friday, but his lawyer requested the Police Act matter be set over until after Oland’s retrial in the 2011 bludgeoning death of his father, multimillionaire Richard Oland.

Oland’s lawyers “noted” the adjournment in the McCloskey arbitration “with a great deal of interest,” said family lawyer Bill Teed.

But he said they are “not in a position to make any comment on it at this time.”

The adjournment in the McCloskey hearing came after a conversation between a police commission representative and the deputy attorney general’s office, said Steve Roberge, executive

Deputy police chief’s arbitration hearing in Dennis Oland case delayed a year

Saint John Police Force Deputy Chief Glen McCloskey’s arbitration hearing in connection with the second-degree murder trial of Dennis Oland has been bumped back by more than a year.

McCloskey was scheduled to appear before an arbitrator appointed by the New Brunswick Police Commission on Friday, but his lawyer requested the Police Act matter be set over until after Oland’s retrial in the 2011 bludgeoning death of his father, multimillionaire Richard Oland.

“A recent conversation between the Deputy Attorney General’s office and the Commission’s representative has led the Commission to conclude that it is now in the best interest of justice to agree with Deputy Chief McCloskey’s request to adjourn the arbitration hearing to a date after the evidence in the second Oland murder trial has been completed,” the commission’s executive director Steve Roberge confirmed in an email to CBC News.

Saint John deputy police chief faces arbitration hearing in Dennis Oland case

A high-ranking officer of the Saint John Police Force will face an arbitration hearing in connection with the murder trial of Dennis Oland.

No details of alleged misconduct by Deputy Chief Glen McCloskey are listed in the hearing notice posted Monday on the New Brunswick Police Commission website.

But Steve Roberge, the executive director and CEO of the commission, confirmed the allegations against McCloskey “are related to the Oland investigation and proceedings.”

Police Chief John Bates has previously described the accusations as “for lack of a better choice of words, sort of a witness tampering.”

Arbitration hearings are scheduled “when the subject officer and their chief of police, or civic authority or commission are unable to come to an agreement on corrective measures resulting from the disciplinary process,” Roberge told CBC
