Tony Degrafreed, who was convicted of killing then-wife in 1994, was preliminarily charged with the murder on Sunday after his current wife, Rebecca Degrafreed, was found dead in their Indianopolis home.

WISH-TV reports Jordan Yarbro, 19, told police he heard strange noises coming from his parents bedroom on Sunday morning. He said Tony Degrafreed came out of the room and stabbed him in the chest. He fled the home on foot and was apprehended by police about a mile away from their northeast-side home.

Rebecca Degrafreed, who was found dead on the bedroom floor, suffered head trauma after being beaten with a baseball bat. Her throat was also slit.

Tony Degrafreed was sentenced to 30 years in prison, but served about one-half of the sentence for the murder of his then-wife, Stacy Degrafreed, in 1994. They were estranged at the time of her murder. Tony Degrafreed reportedly shot three people during a domestic dispute, killing his wife.

40 Shot, 4 Killed Including 11-Year-Old Shamiya Adams, in Chicago Weekend Violence

About 40 people were shot, four killed in Chicago weekend violence. At least 18 people were shot in a little more than 12 hours overnight, bringing the total to 40 since Friday afternoon, NBC News reports.

Among the victims was 11-year-old Shamiya Adams, who was gunned down inside a Chicago home during a sleepover, after a stray bullet struck her, police said.

A 24-year-old man was shot in a bar on Chicago’s Southwest Side early Sunday morning. He was pronounced dead at the scene from a gunshot wound to the chest.

A 21-year-old man was shot multiple times as he and a woman got into a cab in the 900 block of North Mayfield Avenue. He was later pronounced dead at the West Suburban Medical Center. A 30-year-0ld man was found dead in a car in the South Austin neighborhood. He suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the back, shoulder and neck.

The weekend hasn’t come to a close yet. I suspect there will be more violence in the Windy City.

11-Year-Old Shamiya Adams Dies After Being Shot in Head During Sleepover

TRAVESTY:  11-year-old Shamiya Adams died after being shot in the head during a sleepover at her best friend’s home in the 3900 block of West Gladys Avenue in Chicago.

Adams and a group of her friends were set to make s’mores during a sleepover Friday night when a bullet came through the window and struck her in the head, the Chicago Sun Times reports.

Rosemarie Jones, who hosted the sleepover, said the girls were sitting in a circle when “gunshots rang out and one came in through the window and shot one of the girls in the head.”

It is reprehensible that Shamiya Adams was gunned down at a sleepover. What is going on in Chicago? The mayor should institute Martial Law. How many more children have to die at the hands of a bunch of armed thugs before something drastic is done?

Florida Teen Ivins Rosier Gets 23-Year Prison Sentence for Killing Former K-9

WTF:  Ivins Rosier, 17, was sentenced to 23 years in prison on Friday for fatally shooting a retired police dog, the Sun-Sentinel reports. The teen was found guilty in May on charges of cruelty to animals with a firearm, burglary of a dwelling with a firearm and shooting into a building in connection with the Nov. 18, 2012, shooting of the dog as he broke into Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Robert Boody’s home.

The Associated Press reports Rosier turned down a plea deal, which would have required him to serve 20 years in prison. His co-defendant, Gilson Gilles, 20, is awaiting trial on the same charges.

Prosecutors said Ivins Rosier confessed to breaking into the trooper’s home while wearing a GPS bracelet because of a previous burglary arrest.

I am in no way justifying what Ivins Rosier did, but giving him a 23-year prison sentence for killing a former police dog is just really crazy.

When emergency crews arrived, deputies say a woman with a gunshot wound to the head was able to tell them who the shooter was and that she believed he was headed to another residence at Anvil and Ella to possibly attack more family members.

But law enforcement officials intercepted the suspect and he took off. The suspect led deputies on a 30-minute chase until he drove into a cul-de-sac at Countrymeadow and Country Canyon.

The suspect is sitting in his vehicle surrounded by deputies with guns drawn and at least a dozen patrol cars. A large SWAT vehicle rammed into the vehicle, crushing the front of it. A second SWAT vehicle pulled directly behind the suspect’s vehicle and rammed into the back of it.

‘RHOA’ Star Apollo Nida Gets 8 Years in Prison for Bank Fraud, ID Theft

Apollo Nida of ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta‘ was sentenced to eight years in prison for bank fraud, ID theft.

Reginald G. Moore, Special Agent in Charge of the U.S. Secret Service, Atlanta Field Office, said in a press release, “Today’s sentencing exemplifies impartial justice regardless of economic class or preceived celebrity status. Nida’s sentence should be an eye opener for other like-minded criminals who scheme to steal victims’ identities, defraud them and ignore the consequences of their actions.”

Nida’s attorney, Thomas Bever, tried to get the sentence reduced citing his client’s poor upbringing but Judge Charles Pannell wasn’t about to buy that. Um, Apollo Nida is 35 and this isn’t the first time he has broken the law.

Judge Pannell did recommend that Apollo Nida be allowed to serve his sentence close to Atlanta due to his family, which includes two young sons with wife, Phaedra Parks.
