A manhunt for the killers of a Maryland police officer — who had planned to celebrate her birthday and wedding anniversary this weekend — ended Tuesday with the arrests of three teenagers.
The three suspects — who are 15, 16 and 17 and have not been identified — were charged as adults Wednesday morning with murder and burglary, according to WBAL-TV in Baltimore.
Their arrests come after Dawnta Harris, 16, was busted for his alleged role in the death of Baltimore County Police Officer Amy Caprio, 29.
Caprio on Monday confronted burglary suspects who attempted to flee in a vehicle. She ordered Harris, the driver of the Jeep, to step out of the car, police reported. Harris then allegedly charged at her and Caprio fired her weapon at the Jeep. After Harris allegedly mowed her down, he abandoned the vehicle nearby. It was found with a bullet hole in the front windshield.
Caprio later died

Prosecutors have charged a man for the murders of two Christian camp counselors in California from nearly 14 years ago.
Shaun Gallon, 38, is the suspect for the 2004 deaths of Jason Allen, 26, and Lindsey Cutshall, 22. The two were counselors at a camp near Sacramento who went on a three-day sightseeing trip to the coast and never came back. They were found dead in their sleeping bags on a secluded beach at the mouth of the Russian River in northern California in August 2004.
Gallon was arrested in March 2017 for allegedly murdering his brother in their home in the small town of Forestville, according to the Sonoma County Sheriff Steve Freitas.
Gallon had been a person of interest since early in the investigation of the campers’ murders, according to Freitas, but investigators never had enough evidence to charge him.
Officers questioned Gallon about the

A grisly triple murder, home invasion and fire that shocked a sleepy Connecticut neighborhood have led to one suspect’s arrest, and more busts may be on the way, police said.
Ruth Correa, 23, appeared in court Monday on charges for the deaths of Kenneth and Janet Lindquist, as well as their son Matthew. Correa is charged with murder, home invasion, robbery and torching the Lindquist’s house after the killings last December. She did not enter a plea.
Police had initially considered Matthew Lindquist a person of interest in the murder of his parents, whose burned bodies were discovered inside the home. But several months later, on May 5, police found Matthew’s body near the site of the fire, according to WFSB-TV in Hartford.
New details about the crime emerged Monday, which indicate Kenneth and Janet Lindquist suffered severe blunt trauma to the head, according to the Hartford Courant. Kenneth Lindquist reportedly died

It all started as a helpful tip to put a wanted man behind bars, but ended in the tragic death of the tipster, a 21-year-old mom of two.
A 19-year-old Missouri man was charged with murder Friday, after police accidentally shot and killed Savannah Hill while she was attempting to help bring the man to justice.
Mason Farris (pictured) was wanted for a parole violation when Hill called police last Saturday afternoon to say that Farris was with her. She told them he would likely run away on foot, but suggested she could put on her car’s child safety locks to keep him in her vehicle if they pulled her car over to apprehend him, according to a court document obtained by Oxygen.com.
Eight minutes later two patrol cars and three officers made a traffic stop that ended in tragedy and bloodshed.
Farris, the wanted man, was seated in the back of

Well, she definitely didn’t ghost him.
A 31-year-old Arizona woman was arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of stalking and harassing a man she went out with once, allegedly sending him a whopping 65,000 text messages.
Jacqueline Ades claims she met the unidentified Paradise Valley man through Luxy, an online dating site geared towards matchmaking millionaires with “pretty girls,” according to Ades, in a bizarre, rambling jailhouse interview with several Phoenix reporters, including Arizona Family.
The two shared an evening together last summer, but apparently Ades wasn’t ready to say goodbye once the date had ended.
She began sending the man in the neighborhood of 500 texts a day—about 65,000 in total, according to ABC 15 in Phoenix.
In July 2017, the man reported her to police for parking outside his house and, on April 8, Ades is accused of breaking into his home while he was out of the country. The victim was

An 18-year-old Marine has been charged with murder after police found the body of his missing grandmother.
Isaiah Kahleal Evans Caesar was charged on Saturday, nearly a month after he went AWOL from his post in Fort Benning in Georgia, ABC11 in Durham reported.
Police discovered the body of his grandmother Sallie Copeland Evans, 74, near a highway in Roanoke Rapids the night before. Her family had filed a missing persons report after they didn’t hear from Evans for several days.
Caesar had been absent without leave since April 2 and was wanted for desertion. Before Evans’ death, she had tried convincing him to return to his post, the family said.
Willie Patterson, Evans’ neighbor of around 20 years, told ABC11 that Evans had even asked him to join her and Caesar on a drive to Camp Lejeune, a nearby military base, where she reportedly planned to talk to Caesar about resuming his military career. Warning bells went

A North Carolina man who was abused as a toddler has died as a result of the suffering he endured more than two decades ago, and now his mother and her then-boyfriend are facing murder charges.
When David Stuart was just 15 months old, his mother Robyn Noffsinger and her boyfriend David Tripp put him through unspeakable abuse. In April 1997, he was taken to the hospital after enduring multiple head and brain injuries, burns and broken limbs, according to The Herald Sun in Durham County, North Carolina.
“It was a tremendous amount of head trauma,” Jon David, Brunswick County’s District Attorney, said about the injuries. “His arm was pulled in such a way that he had a spiral fracture of his arm. He was dipped in hot liquids which produced a bad burn.”
The trauma wasn’t just horrific. It was long-lasting, causing permanent damage to Stuart. He was confined to a

A mother from Tempe, Arizona was arrested last Thursday after her toddler ate THC-infused mac and cheese. She then allegedly laughed at how the child reacted to the high instead of seeking medical attention. Police and child services, however, don’t think it’s a laughing matter.
Alaina Marie Limpert, 25, allegedly made mac and cheese with THC butter for her husband, according to an arrest report. Limpert says she was unaware that her nearly 2-year-old daughter had ingested it until she began to show signs of the high. Her husband was also present.
“During that time, neither parent took the child to immediate emergency care,” according to the police report.”It was witnessed inside of the residence that [they] both laughed about the side effects the child experienced during that time and then proceeded to place her into their backyard pool to use the cold water to ‘shock’ her.”
