Teen guilty of ‘vicious, savage’ first-degree murder that included rape

MUSKEGON COUNTY, MI – The teen who stabbed a young pregnant mom to death after breaking into her home took the murder to a “vicious, savage place” when he also raped her, a judge declared from the bench Tuesday.

Muskegon County Circuit Judge Annette Smedley ruled Christopher Marks Howard committed first-degree murder when he killed Dominique DaShay O’Neal on June 24, 2015.

Howard had pleaded guilty to open murder Monday, and on Tuesday attorneys argued before Smedley whether the crime was first-degree or second-degree murder. Smedley said it was first-degree murder due to the fact the murder was committed during the commission of another crime, which was home invasion and possibly first-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Court upholds conviction of man who searched Falmouth murder victims for drugs




A man who rifled through the pockets of two homicide victims looking for drugs and left his shoe prints in a blood-soaked crime scene in a Falmouth home before stealing $240 in cash was properly convicted of stealing from a building, a state appeals court ruled this week.

Darryl S. Green lived on Central Avenue in Falmouth on June 11, 2013, when Crystal Perry and Kristofer M. Willams were murdered early that morning in their home a few doors away from Green’s home, a double homicide that remains unsolved four years later.

Lifting the lid on the Finn murder mystery

The brutal murders, hold-ups and extreme gangland violence that would cement his place in Australian underworld history were still to come.

But even in the early days of his criminal career, Smith had begun to build himself a pretty decent rap sheet that included convictions for robbery and gang rape.

The rape earned him a seven-year jail sentence and he was released from prison just a few months before Ms Finn, a brothel madam, was murdered.

So when the Sydney-based criminal was named as a possible suspect by two separate witnesses in the weeks after Ms Finn’s
