Alabama couple arrested in girl's detergent death

Thursday, 19 September 2013 15:30 Published in National News

MADISON, Ala. (AP) - Court records say the parents of an 18-month-old girl who died after eating dishwashing detergent may not have immediately helped the girl because they were heavily intoxicated.

Investigators have charged 31-year-old Kristopher Joseph Speigner and 29-year-old Joy Lynn Speigner with negligent homicide in the Sept. 30, 2012, death of their daughter, McKenzie.

Affidavits say the girl swallowed a dishwashing detergent pod and her parents didn't seek medical help for her until the next day because they had both used prescription drugs and drank alcohol.

The girl's father was arrested Monday and her stepmother surrendered to authorities Tuesday.

Jail records show the two have been released on $6,000 bond each. It's unclear if they have attorneys. A message left at a number for Kristopher Speigner was not immediately returned.

Jury: Ex-Ohio deputy, baby sitter guilty of rape

Thursday, 19 September 2013 15:29 Published in National News

MARION, Ohio (AP) - A former Ohio sheriff's deputy and correction officer has been convicted of raping a 5-year-old girl while he was baby-sitting.

State Attorney General Mike DeWine announced Thursday a Marion County jury found 28-year-old Randy N. Spencer guilty of four counts of rape. His office says Spencer raped the girl between June 2012 and April.

Defense attorney Rocky Ratliff says Spencer denies the charges. He says Spencer is disappointed with the jury's decision and will appeal his conviction. He says prosecutors had no physical evidence against Spencer, whose girlfriend runs a baby-sitting business.

The Columbus Dispatch reports Spencer baby-sat the girl and other children when his girlfriend wasn't available.

The Marion resident faces a maximum sentence of life in prison. He's scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 27.

Musical festival promoters write bad checks to promoters

Thursday, 19 September 2013 14:19 Published in Local News

CAVE-IN-ROCK, Ill. (AP) - Vendors at a recently completed outdoor festival featuring the Insane Clown Posse rap-metal group say they haven't been paid thousands of dollars by promoters of the yearly southern Illinois event.

The Southern Illinoisan reports that several vendors at the Gathering of the Juggalos say they've received bad checks from the promoters of the event near Cave-In-Rock.

Hardin County Sheriff Jerry Fricker says his department got a check from the promoters, Michigan-based Psychopathic Records Inc., as a donation for equipment such as protective vests and stun guns. But Fricker says that check bounced.

The festival has been staged for the past several years near Cave-In-Rock, drawing thousands of people for a week.

A message seeking comment was left Thursday with Psychopathic Records.
