Carjacking suspect Anthony Stokes, 17, dies after police chase and striking a pedestrian in Roswell, Ga., Tuesday afternoon.

Stokes gained national attention when he was denied a heart transplant because of “a history on non-compliance,” which included brushes with the law. During his journey in 2013, he asked for a second chance. It would seem that he didn’t learn from the error of his ways.

Police say Anthony Stokes carjacked a Honda from Perimeter Mall, then shot at an elderly woman during a burglary attempt on Alpine Drive in Roswell.

The pedestrian he struck has been identified as Clementina Hernandez, 33, of Roswell.

Police chased Anthony Stokes after spotting him on Alpharetta Highway following the attempted burglary.

In 2013, Stokes told WSB-TV’s Jovita Moore, that “the heart transplant would help straighten out his life.” “So I can live a second chance. Get a second chance and do things I want to do,” Anthony Stokes said.

Latisha Fisher, 35, is accused of killing her 20-month-old son, Gavriel Ortiz-Fisher, by smothering him inside the bathroom of 5 Boro Burger in midtown Manhattan.

Fisher told a woman who walked into the bathroom and saw her holding her hand on the toddler’s mouth, “I put my hand over his mouth to put him to sleep,” police sources told the NY Daily News.

A worker used a key to open the bathroom after a line to the toilets grew long and there was some concern as to why Fisher was taking so long. The worker found the child unconscious and foaming at the mouth, sources say.

Latisha Fisher tried to deter restaurant staff from administering CPR to the toddler. He later died at a local hospital. Charges are pending against his mother.

Kathrin Goldbach, the girlfriend of Andreas Lubitz, who “deliberately” crashed the Germanwings plane in the French Alps killing 150 people, is reportedly pregnant with their first child.

Goldbach broke off the relationship due to Lubitz’s increasingly erratic and controlling behavior just weeks before the crash.

German newspaper Bild reports the couple had an off-and-on again relationship for the last seven years. Kathrin Goldbach, a teacher, reportedly broke off the relationship with Lubitz because his erratic behavior left her in fear for her safety.

There are reports that investigators found a “small mountain of pills” during a search of Lubitz’s apartment. He was refusing to take his anti-depressant medication.

Separately, there are reports that he told captain Patrick Sondheimer multiple times that he can go to the bathroom any time and that he would take over the controls. According to recordings from the doomed Germanwings flight’s black box, Sondheimer can be heard screaming, “Open the goddamn door!” as Lubitz flew the plane into the French Alps.

Lubitz was reportedly living on the edge due to a deteriorating blurry vision and was said to be fearful that he would lose his job.
