Danielle Locklear vanished on March 11 and her body was found in the South River by searchers on April 3.

Vybz Kartel Sentenced to Life in Prison for Murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams

Jamaican dance hall singer Vybz Kartel was sentenced to life in prison, with no chance of parole until he serves at 35 years. Last month, Vybz, whose real name is Adidja Azim Palmer, was found guilty of the 2011 murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams at his Kingston home.

The Jamaica Gleaner reported that Vybz Kartel, Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell, Kahira Jones and Andre St. John were all sentenced to life in prison. Campbell and Jones are eligible for parole in 25 years, while St. John must serve 30 years.

Tom Tavares-Finson, who is representing Vybz Kartel, plans to appeal the sentence. He is specifically questioning the decision of the trial judge to allow certain phone evidence to be used in court.

#RIP:  10-year-old Taniyah Thomas was fatally shot after she was awakened by the sound of gunshots in the middle of the night as she slept in her Pennsylvania home.

She was killed as she tried to run to her mother’s room. She was pronounced dead at Washington Hospital.

Washington County Coroner Tim Warco said Taniyah Thomas was shot in the head at about 3:50 a.m. Monday at her apartment, near Pittsburgh, Pa.

Police say Taniyah, her mother, mother’s boyfriend and a baby were asleep when the shots were fired through the apartment door. The girl’s grandfather, Sherman Brown, told CBS News that he blames the mother’s boyfriend and believes the shooting was drug-related.

Brown said, “Why would they come to somebody’s house and break in and then go to shooting? She was an innocent girl and got shot and died. And that’s terrible. I’m just so upset.”

Maybe Sherman Brown is onto something….Shantye Brown, Taniyah’s mother, is awaiting trial for allegedly selling crack cocaine to an undercover informant. Police have stopped short of saying the Taniyah Thomas’ apartment was targeted.

#OscarPistorius:  Text messages between Oscar Pistorius and his slain girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp showed rage fueled by jealousy. The text messages were read in court during his high-profile trial for the shooting death of Steenkamp, who he claimed he mistook for an intruder.

One text sent on Jan. 27, 2013 read, “u are very quick to act cold and offish when you’re unhappy… every 5 seconds i hear how u dated another chick,” she wrote.

Perhaps the most damaging to Pistorius was the line Steenkamp wrote saying, “i am the girl who let go with u even when i was scared out of my mind to. i’m the girl who feel in love with u and wanted to tell u this weekend.

“I get snapped at and told my accents and my voice are annoying. i touch your neck to show u i care you tell me to stop. Stop chewing gum. do this don’t do that,” read part of one long text. Source: ABC News

The text messages come as a third witness testified to hearing screaming leading up to the moments when Reeva Steenkamp was murdered by Oscar Pistorius. Anette Stipp told the court that “The thing I remember the most, and I don’t think I will ever forget, is the screaming.”

Stipp’s testimony corroborates Michelle Burger and Charl Johnson’s testimonies. They also said they heard bangs, followed by screaming and another set of bangs with more screaming, the City Press reports.

James Cosby, father of Britney Cosby, who was found dead along with her longtime partner, Crystal Jackson, has been arrested by for tampering with evidence in the women’s deaths.

Sheriff’s investigators believe that James Cosby, who was reportedly very uncomfortable with his daughter being gay, not only knew about the violent deaths of the two women, but also tried to cover it up.

The bodies of Britney Cosby and Crystal Jackson were found near a dumpster in Port Bolivar. KHOU reports that investigators are calling James Cosby’s Houston home a “second crime scene.”

Investigators searched Cosby’s bedroom and found “large areas of blood on surfaces throughout,” according to court documents, KHOU reports. Several items, including a hammer, were sent to a crime lab.

The criminal complaint filed against James Cosby says detectives noticed a missing window shutter from his home. A shutter matching the description was found, covered in blood, near where the women’s bodies were found. Cosby’s bloody thumb print was on the bloody shutter found near the crime scene. He was unable to explain how his thumb print got on the shutter.

James Cosby is charged with tampering with human corpses. The charges against him may be upgraded to murder pending the results of lab tests.
