Charges are filed against a St. Louis woman who bragged on Facebook about lighting a dog on fire.
On July 10, a dog owner found his pet on fire in the back yard of his house. The dog, named Brownie, died from the injuries. Police say they were alerted to a post on Facebook, in which the poster, identified as Adrienne Martin, referenced setting the animal on fire.
The post read “I’m on killa mode… kill dogs… today. I mean what I say and I say what I mean… all dogs don’t go to heaven.”
Martin was charged with felony animal abuse and knowingly burning on Thursday. No word on whether she is in police custody at this time.
A former cable repairman will be in prison until he is nearly 100 years old for terrorizing and sexually assaulting a customer.
The crime happened in December of last year in O'Fallon, Missouri. James Hederle repaired the victim's cable one day and then asked her out. The next day, around midnight, Hederle returned to her house, broke down the front door, and tied the woman up. He proceeded to rape the woman and said if she told anyone he would kill her.
Thursday, the 22-year-old Hederle was sentenced to 75 years in prison for the crime.
The man involved in a fight outside of an East Alton bar in May, has died of his injuries.
Randy Baze was involved in the altercation outside of The Airliner Bar and Grill. Baze was severely injured when he fell in the parking lot and hit his head. The Post-Dispatch reports that Baze recently underwent surgery for the injuries, but never recovered from the procedure.
The Madison County Sheriff's Department says the fight was caught on video and it appears Baze hit the other man first. With Baze's death, the Sheriff does plan to submit the case to the state's attorney and charges could possibly be filed.
