Murder Charge Filed For Nebraska Student Who Went Missing After Party 7 Years Ago

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

Texts Of Teen Facing Murder Trial For Helping Friend Commit Suicide Revealed: ‘I Wanna Help Kill Them’

Texts have emerged in the case of the Utah teen who allegedly helping a 16-year-old girl commit suicide.

Tyerell Przybycien, 18, texted a friend, expressing giddiness to watch somebody die, prosecutors allege.

“It be awesome,” he wrote, according to Inside Edition. “Be like getting away with murder.”

Turns out Przybycien will actually be tried with murder. He has been charged with murder and failure to report a dead body. On Tuesday, a judge made a ruling that he will stand trial for Jchandra Brown’s death, stating that it is “reasonable to infer” that Przybycine intended to cause Brown’s death and that she would not have died without his help.

“Because the probable cause standard at preliminary hearings is low, and because all reasonable inferences are viewed in a light most favorable to the State, the Court finds there is reasonable belief that [Przybycien’s] conduct meets the elements of murder,” Judge James Brady said

Quinton Tellis Will Be Retried For Jessica Chambers’ Murder, District Attorney Says

A District Attorney said Tuesday Quinton Tellis will be retried in Mississippi for the death of 19-year-old Jessica Chambers, who was set on fire, before going to Louisiana to face additional charges.

Tellis is facing life in prison for Chambers’ death, but a hung jury in Batesville, Mississippi put his fate into the hands of a whole new trial and set of jurors on Monday. Not only will he face a new round of Mississippi jurors, but he could also be facing a trial in Louisiana.

The same year Chambers was killed, another young woman, University of Louisiana student Ming-Chen Hsiao, was stabbed in her apartment. Tellis is being charged with her murder, but his defense attorneys said they won’t know what’s next for Tellis at the time the Chambers trial concluded Monday.

“The best thing I know is that he is not indicted in that area and we don’t know anything about

A Mississippi jury was unable to find Quinton Tellis, 29, either guilty or not guilty on Monday of murdering Jessica Chambers in December 2014, when she was set on fire and later died from head-to-toe second and third degree burns. The jury was split, with seven voting guilty and five voting not guilty in an earlier polling.

The district attorney said he will absolutly seek a retrial. 

The jury began deliberating at approximately 4:00 p.m. on Sunday after hearing closing statements from both defense and prosecuting attorneys, and failed to reach a decision the following afternoon after more than eight hours of deliberation. The annoucement came after a moment of confusion, in which the judge said they had reached a not guilty verdict, but jurors misunderstood their instructions and in

Jurors May Soon Reach A Verdict in Jessica Chambers Murder Trial

A Mississippi jury is now deliberating on whether Quinton Tellis, 29, is responsible for murdering 19-year-old Jessica Chambers on Dec. 6, 2014, when she was set on fire and later died from head-to-toe second and third degree burns.

The jury began deliberating at approximately 4:00 p.m. Sunday after hearing closing statements from both defense and prosecuting attorneys. Early in the trial at least eight first responders testified to hearing Chambers say someone named Eric was responsible for setting her on fire, but prosecutors argued her injuries were so significant she would have been unable to communicate clearly.

“I told you as this trial began, you were going to think to yourself, ‘Hmm. why are we here?’ Because when the first responders got to Jessica, they did not hear the name Quinton. They thought they heard the name Eric or Derrick,” prosecuting attorney John Champion said during closing statements Sunday. “Maybe she was

"Criminal Confessions" spotlights Waterloo murder investigation

KWWL –

The Oxygen network t.v. show “Criminal Confessions” is taking a closer look at a double murder that happened in Waterloo ten years ago. 

The episode, “An Informant,” revolves around the Waterloo Police Department’s work in solving the case. 

Both Ronald Scullark Junior and Annisa Schroeder were shot and killed in broad daylight in November 2007. 

The shows producers came to Waterloo this past spring to interview Waterloo Police Investigators who worked on the case. Investigator Lynn Moller, who’s now retired, remembers the case standing out from the ones he’s worked on in his 35 years at the department. 

“It wasn’t in the East side of Waterloo in an alley at 3:30 in the morning,” said Moller. “So that’s what set it apart-the wheres and the whens and broad daylight. It was a beautiful sunshine day in November. Cold, but it was

Man Arrested For Threatening To Kill College Students: ‘It’s Not Murder If They’re Black’

A Virginia man was arrested on Wednesday after he made online threats to kill students attending Howard University, a historically black college, WJLA reported.

John Edgar Rust, 26, made the racist threats on 4chan and Reddit, two online message boards, on Nov. 11, 2015, the FBI said in an affidavit.

Rust’s screenname on Reddit was “watchouthoward.” 

His anonymous 4chan post featured a photo of former University of Missouri president Timothy Wolfe, who resigned after a series of racist incidents on the school’s campus.

“Seriously America why are we still putting up with this s**t?” the post allegedly read. “I mean we might as well just bend over and let the n***ers f**k us right in the ass.”

“So I’ve decided,” the post continues later. “Any n***ers left at Howard University after 10 tomorrow will be the first to go. And any of those cheapskate n***ers who try to get out using the metro

Tonight’s Lethal Injection in Florida an Act of "Cold-Blooded Murder," Defense Attorney Says

The life of a Florida man convicted of killing two people will be decided by a last-ditch appeal today, ahead of his scheduled death by lethal injection tonight.

Michael Lambrix, 57, was found guilty of murdering a man and his girlfriend after a night of partying. Lambrix claimed one of the victims killed the other and his actions were merely self defense, but in two trials, juries voted 8-4 and 10-2 for death.  

Clarence Moore and Aleisha Bryant were killed in southern Florida after going to the trailer Lambrix shared with roommate Frances Smith, prosecutors said. Smith testified against Lambrix during his trial, saying Lambrix asked each woman individually to go outside with him, then returned to the trailer covered in blood.

Lambrix’s execution is the state’s second since restarting executions in August, after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Florida’s execution system was unconstitutional in January 2016. A new sentencing system
