A 25-year-old woman from Danville, Virginia was charged on Monday with first-degree murder after her newborn drowned last year. Vanessa Danielle Poteat is currently in Danville City Jail without bond.

Trusted Caretaker Charged With Burglary That Left 91-Year-Old Man Dead

The aide in charge of taking care of an elderly couple has been charged with setting up a robbery that left the husband dead. According to NY Daily News, Suzette Troutman was arrested on Monday on murder and other charges following the home invasion robbery of 91-year-old Waldiman Thompson and his wife, 100-year-old Ethlin.

On October 11, Troutman reportedly drove her nephew and another man to the couple’s home. The thieves tied up the couple and took $5,000. The incident left the husband in cardiac arrest, and he died of a heart attack. Ethlin escaped and called for help. 

“For two years now, she would go by there and somehow check on them, now and then,” Ethlin’s brother, Garfield Bringle, said of the aide. “I met her, talked

A nearly 7-year-old cold case is coming to resolution after the Nebraska Attorney General announced an arrest in a missing persons investigation at Peru State College, the Associated Press reported.

Joshua Keadle, 36, was charged with first-degree murder in the death of Tyler “Ty” Thomas, who was a 19-year-old freshman when she disappeared after leaving a campus party in late 2010.

Authorities said that Keadle, another student at the school, admitted that he had had sex with Thomas in his car that night, and that Thomas threatened to report that he had raped her.

In the weeks before Thomas’s disappearance, administrators discussed disciplining Keadle for reportedly sexual harassing women who lived near him in a co-ed dormitory on campus.

Thomas was declared dead by the state in 2013, though her remains were never found. Authorities would not say whether this recent arrest was prompted by the discovery of her body or any additional
