Man Accused Of Killing A Couple That Helped Him In Another Alleged Murder

A man already charged in the murder of a couple found buried in a shallow grave in September has just been indicted for the murder of another body found buried under a vacant home in Fort Worth, Texas.

On Thursday, a grand jury indicted Hector “Cholo” Acosta, 28, and his alleged accomplice Felipe Eduardo Ortiz, 29, on capital murder charges in connection with the body found under the home, the Star-Telegram reports. That body was Triston Ray Algiene, 34, who had been missing since July. His body was discovered in October, cut in half before being shoved under a repair patch in the vacant home’s foundation.

Just one month before Algiene’s body was found, Acosta was indicted on the capital murder charge of Erick “Diablo” Zelaya and Zelaya’s girlfriend, Iris Chirinos, who was only 17 years old.

The severed head of Zelaya was discovered on a walking trail. Near the head,

15-Year-Old Viciously Beaten In McDonald’s Bathroom While Another Teen Takes Video

A disturbing video shows a 15-year-old boy backing up into the corner of a McDonald’s bathroom and curling up in a ball on top of a toilet in an attempt to protect himself from the punches of another boy. That video, recorded by another student, has been shared all over Wellington High School in Florida.

“I’m terrified for my kid,” the victim’s mother told WPTV.

In the minute long-clip, the alleged perpetrator, a 17-year-old boy, kicks the bathroom stall open to attack the victim. He then takes his phone only to throw it onto the ground.

“I was furious first of all then I became scared and then it was like disbelief,” the victim’s mother told WPTV. She said her son was followed into the fast food establishment’s bathroom.

According to an NBC affiliate, the victim suffered minor injuries and bruises.

The Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office stated that a 17-year-old was arrested in

Police: Chinx’s Murder Linked To Prison Beef With Another Rapper

More details are emerging from the murder of rapper Chinx. The hip-hop cold case may have been cracked last week when two men were arrested for murder. According to the New York Police Department, the 31-year-old Queens rapper was gunned down while in his car over what’s being described as a six-year prison feud.

Lt. Richard Rudolph, Commanding Officer of the Queens South Homicide Squad, tells XXL that the suspects “hunted” down Chinx (real name Lionel Pickens Jr.). He says that 32-year-old Quincy Homere and 26-year-old Jamar Hill murdered the rising rap star over a feud that took place when Chinx was incarcerated. Chinx and Homere were both at Rikers Island and apparently fought each other on Sept. 27, 2009. 

“We’re not exactly sure what the fight was about but our perpetrator Quincy probably got the worst of it and he wanted to get back at Chinx,” Rudolph says. Homere is

Alert For Missing 8-Year-Old In Ohio After 3 People Found Shot To Death, Another Stabbed In Neck

A search is underway for a “person of interest” after three people were shot to death and another survived a stabbing. The violent attacks happened at two separate homes in Ohio. There was also a search out for a missing child, 8-year-old Devin Holston, who lived in one of the homes. However, that missing-child alert was later cancelled. The Associated Press reports that the Lawrence County sheriff’s office and the state attorney general’s office would not confirm if Holston was found safe.

The bodies of three adults in a house trailer were discovered on Wednesday evening by police. A fourth adult was found stabbed in the head and neck less than half a mile away in another home, the sheriff’s office stated. The person with the stab wounds survived and has been flown to a hospital in West Virginia.

Lawrence County Sheriff Jeff Lawless told the Ironton Tribune that the

While Trump promotes military buildup, some look at another round of base closings

WASHINGTON, D.C. — At the same time that President Donald Trump is pushing a plan to increase defense spending by 10 percent, Washington state Rep. Adam Smith says it’s time to save money by closing some of the nation’s military bases.

Smith, the top Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee, wants to reopen the controversial Base Realignment and Closure process, known as BRAC, last used in 2005.

While the 11th-term congressman has promoted base closings before with no luck, there are signs that the idea is getting increased attention this year on Capitol Hill.

“We ought to give it serious consideration,” Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in an interview Tuesday.

And South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, another member of the panel, sounded receptive to the idea as well, saying: “I’ll follow Senator McCain’s lead on this.”

Smith said that with McCain’s backing, “it makes
