An Oklahoma man allegedly kept his step daughter captive for nearly 20 years, “marrying” her when she was 11 to keep her as his sex slave. Henri Michele Piette, 62, is accused of raping Rosalynn McGinnis repeatedly for decades, according to court documents provided to Fox News.
While being held captive, McGinnis was also stabbed, choked until unconscious, shot and beaten with baseball bats, the Oklahoman reports. Piette’s children told police that he started sexually assaulting the victim at a young age. McGinnis’ mother left Piette in 1997 after he allegedly abused her, leaving behind her young daughter. Then, Piette introduced McGinnis to his other children as “their new mother,” an F.B.I. agent told the Oklahoman.
In 2016, McGinnis, now 33, escaped Piette along with eight of her nine children from a tent in rural Mexico with eight of her nine children, according to People.

A man in Boardman, Ohio has been charged with child endangering and inducing panic after a bizarre incident over the weekend. He allegedly chased his 6-year-old daughter around their neighborhood while wearing a clown mask, an act that resulted in another man firing off a gun.

A Michigan man has pled guilty for killing his girlfriend’s 4-month-old daughter.
According to MLive, 46-year-old Richard P. Watson pled guilty on Tuesday to second-degree murder and first-degree child abuse. In exchange for this plea, felony murder charges against him were dropped.
Evelyn Patricia Legacy was 4 months old when she died on August 14, 2015 at C.S. Motts Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Later that morning, Watson and the mother had trouble waking the child. They took Evelyn to IKEA and found her unresponsive. Emergency responders said

Antonette Thevenin, a Grass Valley, California woman, was killed in an ATV accident while the driver was under the influence of alcohol, according to CBS.
Now, driver Carlee D’Arata faces manslaughter charges. D’Arata was a close family friend of the victim.
“Unfortunately, I don’t have any remorse for her right now,” said Trish Strom, Antonette’s mother. “Her going to prison is not going to bring my daughter back. But she gets to see her children when she comes out too … The fact that her and her husband have never come forward to say they’re sorry, not a card, not anything.”
“They just left her there,” Strom added.
“I know one thing, she gets to tuck her kids in at night for the last four months while my granddaughter cries herself to sleep for her mom,” Strom concluded.
Those close to the women involved in the accident say D’Arata has had a drinking problem for a while: “I

A Florida man is accused of helping his girlfriend kill herself after the couple made a “suicide pact.”
According to News-Journal, 52-year-old Bruce Haughton and his 52-year-old girlfriend, Katherine Goddard, tried to kill themselves by carbon monoxide poisoning twice in June. She died during the second attempt, while he survived. Her daughter found the couple during the incident.
On June 30, Haughton and Goddard were both found in a car unresponsive. Haughton helped plan the suicide by placing duct tape around the garage door and attaching a dryer vent to the exhaust pipe of a vehicle so the car would fill with carbon monoxide. “I just got home and I just found my mom and my step-dad in the garage, in the car,” the daughter said, “and I don’t know if the car’s been on or what but … he’s barely breathing and I can’t get a pulse off of her.”
The daughter also found

A new law suit reveals the lascivious ongoings of a Hollywood scandal, in which a producer was seduced and then threatened by his investor’s daughter.
A report from the New York Post explains the bizarre story behind “Time Freak” and GTM Pictures.
After partnering with Chinese investor Sean Liao, producer Keith Wright found himself embroiled in trouble. Wright had been given $10 million to create three movies, including the rom-com “Time Freak,” through the newly founded GTM Pictures.
Wright was quickly made into a target for Wendy Liao, Sean’s daughter, whom he claims aggressively attempted to court him.
“She consistently asked Mr. Wright out for lunch and dinner,” the sexual harassment suit reads.
“Ms. Liao also repeatedly purchased or offered to purchase gifts for Mr. Wright. These gifts – including a Hugo Boss watch, Adidas shoes, engraved Tiffany cufflinks, a Coach backpack – were never solicited by Mr. Wright and made him uncomfortable.”
Wright says he returned the gifts
