A California man is being called a hero after saving his pregnant wife from the path of a speeding truck. As People reported, Aaron Gutierrez and his family were at a local pizza joint in Fresno celebrating his 6-year-old son’s birthday on January 5. They took the bus home and were walking from their stop when the driver of a speeding Toyota Tacoma ran a red light and lost control. The quick-thinking father sprung into action and pushed his wife out of the truck’s path.
The couple was with their three children as well as Gutierrez’s mother during the incident.
“I heard a big bang, I looked over my shoulder and I saw the truck flying towards us. I looked at my wife, and it was heading right towards her direction,” the 31-year-old father told People.

A man from Youngstown, Ohio, has been sentenced to nearly 30 years behind bars for rape after he impregnated a pair of 14-year-old twins and their 12-year-old sister. Arnold Perry, 34, was sentenced to 27 years on Thursday, CBS News reported.
Before his sentencing, Assistant Mahoning County Prosecutor Jennifer McLaughlin told the court that Perry manipulated the family into letting him move into their home before he sexually abused the children, according to The Youngstown Vindicator. The girls’ mother let Perry stay with them when he needed a place to live, the Associated Press reported. They were trying to help him out, and he took advantage.
McLaughlin said one of the twins had an abortion. The other two girls were unable to terminate their pregnancies because they were discovered too late.
“These girls will suffer the rest of their lives because of this,” McLaughlin said.
Perry pleaded guilty in November to

Florida man Michael Scott Wilson, 32, has allegedly attempted to cause serious harm (or perhaps death) to his estranged, pregnant wife by rigging a door to electrocute her. The makeshift trap was thwarted by police.
According to First Coast News, Wilson hooked up electrical devices to the front and bottom locks and handle of his door, affixing the mechansim to the entrance with clamps, in the hopes of shocking his partner.
Wilson’s wife told police that she was insructed to “use the front door because the garage door is not going to open.” She was also told to warn their child not to open the door because, “[I] don’t want her getting hurt.”
The woman’s father had alerted the police department to the situation after hearing suspicious statements from Wilson.
“This is one of the most bizarre domestic violence cases I have seen in my career,” said sheriff Rick Staly. “Not only did

A woman who is 37 weeks pregnant was beaten with a baseball bat and injected with methamphetamine against her will in Charleston, West Virginia, on Thursday. According to the Charleston Gazette-Mail, Kyle Wilson Stowers, 21, is accused of being the man behind these despicable actions.
He has been charged with malicious wounding and is being held on a bail of $10,000. It is unclear if he has a lawyer who can speak on his behalf at this time.
The woman claimed that Stowers attacked her inside a home, striking her in the head, face, legs and torso with a wooden baseball bat numerous times. She has suffered cuts and bruises from the attack. Then, according to the woman, he left her “for dead.” Before fleeing, though, he allegedly injected meth into her arm, The Associated Press reported.

Police had to pull a pregnant mother from her car after she passed out at a stoplight with a child in the backseat, reported The Miami Herald. According to police, the Evansville, Indiana mom told them she had injected heroin 10 minutes before she conked out. Natalie Onay, 22, is five months pregnant, according to Fox59.
On Monday, police were called after someone noticed Onay passed out behind the steering wheel at an intersection. The driver in the car that was behind Onay said the mother didn’t move, even as the stop light cycled at least two times, according to Fox59. At one point, Onay’s car moved forward before just narrowly escaping being hit by another vehicle. But even that close call didn’t appear to wake Onay up.
In fact, police had to pull her out of the car. Her 10-month-old child, who is now in custody of

A San Diego man was convicted of murdering his wealthy boyfriend by stabbing him 24 times and dumping him off a cliff, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
David Meza, 26, brought his boyfriend Jake Merendino, 51, to the side of a road in Mexico in 2015 and repeatedly stabbed him, gutted him, and slashed his neck, prosecutors said. The older man was then dropped off the side of a cliff.
Prosecutors argued that Meza killed his boyfriend in order to inherit about $3.27 million in property, including a $273,000 ocean condo that Merendino had just purchased the day before.
Meza and Merendino met in 2013 after Meza posted an online ad saying that he was straight but did “gay things” for money. The two began a relationship in which Meza received money and expensive gifts from Merendino.
But, unbeknownst to Merendino, Meza had a girlfriend, Taylor Langston, who would became his fiancée. He
