  • "I harmed my babies."

    That’s what a 41-year-old Tacony mother, bleeding from self-inflicted wounds to her wrists, told police when they arrived at her house on Ditman Street near Levick on Thursday.

    Police said the woman, identified by neighbors and in property records as Stacey Newkirk, smothered one of her 18-month-old twins and drowned the other in what sources say may have been a jealous rage over an affair she believed her husband was having with a family member. The woman also attempted to poison her 4-year-old daughter and then tried to kill herself, police said.

    Her husband, the children’s father, called police when he arrived home to find his wife distraught and the bodies of the twins -- identified Friday morning as Adam and Eve Smalls --limp and lifeless on the bed in the front bedroom.

    A note next to each child read, "This is why I killed your kids," and detailed her allegations of the husband’s affair, sources said.

  • Perturbed about the taste of a hamburger she purchased from Hardee’s, a Tennessee woman twice called police emergency operators to lodge a complaint about the fast food outlet’s “nasty” grub.

    Those calls, of course, made Donna Marie Nichols, 50, the latest restaurant patron to get arrested for “Abuse of 911 system,” according to a criminal complaint filed last Thursday in Roane County’s General Sessions Court.

    After Nichols made two 911 calls, a cop responded to her location, and was told that she “had purchased a meal from the Hardees in Rockwood and that the hamburger tasted funny.” Nichols, pictured in the above mug shot, added that before she contacted cops, she called Hardee’s, “and that they told her to return and they would refund her money.”

    In one of her 911 calls (listen), Nichols told a police operator that the Hardee’s food “is no good” and that, “I only took a sma read more...

    "I didn't talk to him about the ball game. I was talking to another guy about the game," Taylor said. "[Wilson] was meddling and told me to shut up and gave me the finger.

    "I wasn't gonna take no more from him," Taylor added. "I went up to him and I hit him. Didn't hit him that hard, but I hit him."

    (Reuters) - A 36-year-old woman was accused of causing $10,000 worth of damage to a painting by the late abstract expressionist artist Clyfford Still, a work valued at more than $30 million, authorities said on Wednesday.

    A police report said Carmen Tisch punched and scratched the painting, an oil-on-canvas called "1957-J no.2", at the recently opened Clyfford Still museum in Denver and pulled her pants down to slide her buttocks against it.

    Tisch was charged with felony criminal mischief on Wednesday and has been held on a $20,000 bond since the incident in late December, said Lynn Kimbrough, spokeswoman for the Denver District Attorney's Office.

    Kimbrough said Tisch urinated after she rubbed up against the canvas, but whether urine got on the painting was still under investigation, she said.

  • HONOLULU (AP) — A Hawaii man was charged with four counts of assault after allegedly attacking a group of men with what is believed to be a cow's thighbone, police on the Big Island said Wednesday.

    Officers responded to a report of a brawl outside a Kailua-Kona bar on Christmas Eve and arrived to find four men with injuries from an attack. Bar patrons were holding Gregory Haas, 45, who witnesses told police attacked the men with the bone.

    "He did indicate that he did actually find it in pastureland here in the Kona area," Lt. Gerald Wike said Wednesday. The weapon was recovered at the scene and taken as evidence. Police are sure it's a bone from a large animal and are trying to determine with certainty that it's from a cow.

    "It's unusual someone using that as a weapon," he said. "This is the first that I have experienced an assault taking place with what appears to be an animal bone."

    The attack in the Gold Coast Center parking lot was "unprovoked," Wike said, adding that read more...
