Pressing the muzzle of a gun to his 50-year-old wife’s head and pulling the trigger while they were having sex apparently was a major turn on for an Oklahoma man—until the gun actually fired and killed her. At least that’s the story husband Arthur Sedille, 23, is giving cops. The couple didn’t realize the gun was loaded the very last time they were having sex, he told police. Sedille immediately dialed 911 but it was too late to do anything. He’s being held on suspicion of first-degree murder, but no formal charges have yet been filed, and police are continuing to investigate, CNN reports.
LOS ANGELES — The LAPD released images of 180 women taken by the alleged ” Grim Sleeper” on Thursday in the hope that family or friends will recognize them and contact authorities. In July, when Los Angeles police arrested Lonnie Franklin Jr., the man accused of being the notorious “Grim Sleeper” serial killer, they searched his South L.A. home for incriminating evidence and found nearly 1,000 still photographs and hours of video showing women, almost all of them partly or completely nude and striking sexually graphic poses.
Detectives have spent months trying to identify the women to determine whether they are alive and to learn how they came to be photographed by a man charged with sexually assaulting and killing 10 women during a crime spree that spanned two decades. The attempt has proved fruitless prompting the LAPD to release the images of 180 women in the hope that family or friends will identify them and contact investigators.
Back in August, 57-year-old Franklin pleaded not guilty to murder charges in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom. Franklin was dressed in an orange prison jumpsuit and had his hands shackled to his waist. The pleas were entered on his behalf by his attorney. Franklin only spoke to answer procedural questions. About 30 family members and friends of some of the victims of the “Grim Sleeper” attended the emotional hearing. Some were seen crying as they left the courtroom.The retired auto mechanic was arrested at his South Los Angeles home July 7 after DNA evidence linked him to the 10 murders. Investigators said they were trying to tie him to dozens more. Franklin is being held without bail. Prosecutors have not yet decided whether they’ll seek the death penalty. Superior Court Judge Hilleri G. Merrit has said the trial process could last three years.
NY Post: Cops breaking up a brawl at a Brooklyn club early yesterday wounded one man — and then shot and killed a bouncer who once served as a bodyguard for the likes of Jay-Z, Mariah Carey and P. Diddy.
A spat over a spilled drink escalated at the Norwood Palace in Cypress Hills at around 3 a.m., with patrons striking each other with anything at hand and then firing off several rounds.
“Chairs and bar stools were flying all over the place,” said house DJ Timothy Stokes. “Then some shots went off.”
Two nearby plainclothes cops confronted patron Donovan Wilson, 19, outside the club as he fired at a bouncer wearing a bulletproof vest, said Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.
When Wilson turned toward them, they yelled, “Police! Don’t move!” and shot him in the elbow and hip when he didn’t follow their orders, Kelly said.
Then, hearing a shot from inside the club, cops rushed in to find a second bouncer, Kevin White, 43, holding a gun. “[They] screamed at him several times to drop the weapon, and he did not,” Stokes said.
White, whose rap sheet included five arrests for weapon possession, was fatally shot in the neck.
A police source said surveillance video showed he was shooting at the cops.
But relatives, who said he’d worked with rap and pop royalty, insisted he had just wrested the gun away from a patron.
His brother, Louis, a nurse, said, “My brother would never carry a gun”
