All three are charged in connection to the shooting death of 1-year-old Ne’riah Miller who was gunned down last month while she was being held by her mother on their front porch on Aug. 27. Her mother was injured in the shooting, but survived.

Not many details have been released about the case or the men’s roles or motive.

The family of 16-month-old Ne’riah Miller said they were receiving death threats due to increased police presence in the neighborhood since the shooting.

It happened on Floral Park. Thomas Coffey, a friend of the the victim, was on the phone with her when it happened. Police say an elderly woman opened her door to a stranger who pushed her way inside the home.

“While I was on the phone with her on the way over here I heard her saying, ‘you’re not gonna take my money,’ and the girl was hollering back, ‘give me that money, give me that money,’” says Coffey

Once inside, police say the suspect tried to get her hands on some money-but the victim wouldn’t allow it.

“She hung on for dear life to that money and I love for and I love her for her strength,” says Coffey.

Getting nowhere with the cash, police say the thief left. Once crews arrived, the victim was taken to the hospital for hand injury, which police say resulted from the struggle.

Private Detective: Woman Assaulted After Giving 3 Teens A Ride

Three teenagers are accused of attacking a woman after asking her for a ride.

On Monday night, a woman in her 50s stopped at an Elizabethtown Dollar General to run a quick errand. As she was leaving, detectives say she was approached by three teens asking her where she was headed and if she would mind giving them a ride to their friend’s house.

She agreed.

It was not long before the woman realized she had made a terrible mistake. Investigators say the woman’s passengers started to get violent, hitting her in the head.

Luckily, she was able to stay alert and turn down a street where she knew her relative lived. Her head was bleeding severely.

“It was bleeding real bad and she was just crying and screaming, hollering ‘Why? Why? Why?’” says her relative Bennie Ray Logsdon.

Once deputies arrived, it didn’t take long to find the suspects.

“They were all located separately between state police and deputies and they were brought back in interviewed,” says Detective Sergeant Rex Allaman.

Officials say they did admit to being in the white Grand Am. 18-year-old Cody Norman, 18-year-old Robert Beard, and a 17-year-old boy were all arrested.

Wrongful Death Man Shoots Son-In-Law Before Shooting Self in Madison County

We’re learning more about a murder-suicide in Madison County that left two men dead. Investigators said an elderly man shot his son-in-law, then turned the gun on himself.

It happened Thursday afternoon at a home on Ole Daniel Boone Road.

Investigators said Frederick Graeter, 73, and his son-in-law Steven Bryan, 55, are sadly both dead after Thursday’s shooting. Kentucky State Police said Graeter took the life of his son-in-law, before killing himself.

It’s a tragedy neighbors said they can’t comprehend. “Why? You know, why would he do that? Especially family members. You don’t take another man’s life,” said Johnny Johnson, who lives down the street from the crime scene.

http://liarcatchers.com/wrongful_death.html

Greater’s daughter said it was all because of an argument at her father’s home. She said she was on the phone with her brother-in-law when her father told him to leave just before 2p.m. Then, words were said and eventually Greater’s daughter said she heard gunshots.

“An elderly person who lives in the home shot his son-in-law, fatally killing him before turning the firearm on himself,” Trooper Robert Purdy with Kentucky State Police.

Greater’s daughter said family was home during the shooting. Kentucky State Police is interviewing them as part of the investigation, but reliving the horror isn’t easy. “Obviously they are pretty distraught. I think it was a very traumatic thing that happened in the home,” said Purdy.

It was traumatic for family, and for people who live nearby. “It’s kind of shocking that it would happen this close to home,” said Johnson. While he didn’t know his neighbors well, he said he feels their pain.

“It’s tragic, you know, I hate it for the family. I don’t wish nothing bad on nobody. I just hope the family gets through it alright,” said Johnson.

As the family mourns and says goodbye in the most difficult way, neighbors want to let them know they aren’t alone. “My thoughts and prayers are out to them and I hope they get over this hump,” said Johnson.

Investigators said although other people were in the home during the shooting, no one else was hurt.

Wrongful Death Bodies of 5 Missing Children Found, Father Arrested

The bodies of five missing children from Lexington County have been found in Alabama, after law enforcement officials say their father confessed to killing them.

The remains were discovered around 4:45 p.m. Eastern Time in Wilcox County, Alabama. It’s not clear yet how the children died.

The children’s father, Timothy Ray Jones Jr., was arrested last Saturday in Raleigh, Mississippi at a driver’s license checkpoint.

http://liarcatchers.com/wrongful_death.html

Smith County, Mississippi Sheriff Charlie Crumpton says Jones appeared to be under the influence when officers inspected his vehicle.

When deputies ran Jones tags after his arrest, they got a hit in the missing person’s database about the children. He was then arrested for DUI and possession of a controlled substance, and deputies in Smith County called South Carolina officials.

Lexington County deputies, along with State Law Enforcement Division and FBI agents, then traveled to Mississippi to take part in the investigation.

Crumpton says Jones confessed to officers late Monday night, and led them to where the bodies were, which was an area 10 miles east of Camden, Alabama. The bodies were found in five separate garbage bags, Crumpton says.

Officers say they have not yet determined a motive.

The children’s mother reported the children–who are between the ages of one and eight–missing back on September 3rd. According to officers, the mother, who’s divorced from Jones, said she had been unable to contact her ex-husband.

The husband is the children’s primary legal guardian. Neighbors told deputies that Jones said he was moving with his children from his home near Lexington to another state.

Lexington County Sheriff Lewis McCarty says charges are pending against Jones. The county coroner is working to transport the remains back to Lexington County to be positively identified.
