New photos show bloody crime scene after cop shoots cafe worker dead next to daughter, 4

After Officer Yanez, 29, was found not guilty of manslaughter, Ms Reynolds released a statement, saying: “I am incredibly disappointed with the jury’s verdict.

“My boyfriend, Philando Castile, was pulled over because, per Officer Yanez, he had a wide nose and looked like a suspect.

“He did nothing but comply with Officer Yanez’s instructions to get his driver’s license. He was seatbelted and doing as he was told, when he was shot by Officer Yanez who fired 7 shots into the vehicle where my four-year-old daughter and I also sat.

“It is a sad state of affairs when this type of criminal conduct is condoned simply because Yanez is a policeman. God help America.”

The victim’s furious mother, Valerie Castile, said outside court: “I’m mad as hell right now. My son loved this city and this city killed my son.

“The system continues to fail black people.”

Frederick Oag trial: Crime scene photos showed bloody stairwell where Shane Sturgess was found

In the early stages of criminal trials, evidence often rolls out like a jigsaw puzzle — sometimes the pieces don’t seem to fit yet.

The hope is by the end of the case, what seemed unusual to focus on at the beginning will make sense.

So it is at Frederick Oag’s Superior Court trial on charges of manslaughter and aggravated assault, which began before a jury of nine women and three men in London this week.

Oag, 41, has pleaded not guilty to the charges in connection with the stabbing death of Shane Sturgess, 45, and the injuring of Mark Desousa on Nov. 9, 2014.

The basic narrative is that Sturgess and Desousa were heading home from the bars at about 3 a.m. when there was a “confrontation” with Oag outside his residence at 150 Adelaide St. N.

Sturgess was stabbed in the leg, specifically in the femoral artery. He lost consciousness on the front step and died a

Juries feel more when they see crime-scene photos in color

What if you sat on a jury that wrongly convicted an innocent person of murder—all because of color crime-scene photos?

It could happen. In research published in the American Psychological Association’s Psychology, Public Policy, and Law journal on March 30, social psychologist Jessica Salerno found that color photos of murders disgust jurors more than the same images in black and white. This disgust leads jurors to want to punish defendants, and to ignore other evidence, according to her study.

Salerno measured the effect of verbal and visual murder evidence on over 500 mock jurors. She found that those who see color photos of a gruesome crime are more likely to feel disgust than those who see the same crime scene in black and white, and more likely to feel disgust than those who see color photos of a less violent crime scene.

Mock jurors who saw bloody color photos were also more

Haverty murder trial Day 3: Bloody crime scene photos shown to jury

(Editor’s note: This story contains subject matter and language that some may find offensive).

Graphic photos of the crime scene, victim and accused were put on display on Day 3 of Sean Wade Haverty’s first degree murder trial Wednesday.

Photos included Schweitzer’s body laying beneath a yellow emergency blanket, a closely-cropped photo of the gunshot wound on Schweitzer’s neck taken at the autopsy, a photo of the bloodstained white T-shirt Schweitzer was wearing when he was shot and pictures of Haverty’s bleeding and badly lacerated face caused by being hit in the face by a glass bong by Schweitzer just before he shot him.

There were also photos of a bullet hole in a door frame, the second shot that Haverty fired that missed Schweitzer.

Members of Schweitzer’s family, including his mother, remained outside the courtroom while the graphic photos were being shown.

The day was spent mostly talking about the blood found at

Graphic crime scene photos at Dylann Roof trial show carnage inside Emanuel AME Church

Graphic images of bodies, blood and bullets flashed before a jury and families of the dead Thursday as federal prosecutors continued to build their case against a self-avowed white supremacist accused of turning a cherished Charleston sanctuary into a gruesome tomb.

Dylann Roof, 22, sat still and expressionless, looking down at the defense table, as federal prosecutors in his hate crimes trial showed 360-degree image scans from inside the Emanuel AME Church fellowship hall where nine black worshipers died in a barrage of bullets. The chilling images showed the dead lying on a white tile floor smeared with blood and littered with spent shell casings and emptied magazines that had been cast aside when their rounds were exhausted.

Brittany Burke, a former State Law Enforcement Division crime scene technician, methodically walked the court through the visual display, identifying the fallen and pointing out evidence left in the killer’s wake. Despite a warning
