Alleged Charleston Church Shooter Dylann Roof Has Pleaded Not Guilty To All Charges

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersSad SadViolence

Dylann Roof has pleaded not guilty.

The accused gunman in last month's tragic shooting in Charleston, South Carolina has pleaded not guilty to all federal charges.

According to authorities, Dylann Roof had confessed to shooting and killing nine people at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on June 18.

The alleged murderer's lawyer admitted that the 21-year-old actually wanted to plead guilty to all 33 federal charges. However, the attorney said he couldn't allow his client to do so.

The counsel explained that he couldn't advise Dylann since the government is still deciding whether or not it will seek the death penalty for his accused crimes.

We hope that whatever the government decides, justice is served on behalf of all the victims and their families. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this terrible tragedy.

Terrence Howard's Ex-Wife Is Suing Him For Assault, Emotional Distress, & Defamation Over That Alleged Attack Two Years Ago!

| Filed under: Legal MattersTerrence HowardViolence

Terrence allegedly punched, choked, and threatened Michelle Ghent.

Yikes!

Terrence Howard isn't done with Michelle Ghent — but we're not talking about a rekindled romance! The Empire star is being sued by his ex-wife over an alleged assault from two years ago!

Back in 2013, the 46-year-old and his former flame took a reunion trip to Costa Rica, where Michelle claims her ex punched her in the face, choked her, and threatened to kill her! Woah!

At the time, she walked away with a temporary restraining order, but now she says that's not enough.

She has filed a lawsuit against Terrence for assualt, defamation, and two different types of emotional distress — both negligent and intentional.

Some of the stuff in the legal docs sounds pretty serious, especially the part that mentioned the actor's son, Billy, had to intervene to get his father away from Michelle:

"While Billy tried to pry Defendant's hands from Plaintiff's neck, Defendant whispered to Plaintiff, 'Remember what I told you in Bora Bora? That is what I'm gonna do,' referring to a prior instance where Defendant told Plaintiff that her body would never leave the island. Plaintiff interpreted the reference to mean that Defendant was going to kill her."

What the what?!

It'll be interesting to see how this plays out, since Terrence denied the whole thing back in the day. What do U think about the scary situation, Perezcious readers?

***WARNING: GRAPHIC CASES OF ANIMAL CRUELTY BELOW***

What goes around, comes around!

We can't believe that we live in a world where humans feel the need to viciously murder other living creatures, and Cecil the Lion is just the latest case of animal cruelty in the news.

Walter Palmer, the American dentist who killed Cecil, may still be in hiding, but we're hoping that he will have to eventually face poaching charges in Zimbabwe once he resurfaces.

However, even though Walter has yet to face any immediate legal ramifications for his crime, you can take solace knowing that his vicious slaying has caused his Minnesotan dental practice to close.

But if you're like us and enjoy seeing people who harm animals get what's coming to them, then you're in luck, because we've put together a list of five high profile animal rights cases where justice was served!

Falls found a woman, only identified as Heather, on an escort website and showed up to her house. When she opened the door, he put a gun to her stomach and asked her, "life or die?"

Falls then began to choke her, but what he didn't expect was her to fight back! Heather recounts the attack:

"When he strangled me, I grabbed my rake, and when he laid the gun down to get the rake out of my hands, I shot him. I grabbed the gun and shot behind me."

After she shot behind her, she ran out of the house and shouted for help. It was then that a neighbor called the police. However, upon arrival, not only did they find Neal dead inside, but they discovered some disturbing evidence in his car!

He had multiple items in the trunk of his car which included

Bobbi Kristina's Death Will Reportedly Be Investigated As A Homicide — As The Family Plans To Bury Her Next To Mom Whitney Houston

bobbi kristina investigated as homicide

Oh no.

With Bobbi Kristina's autopsy scheduled, it's rumored that the aspiring singer's death will now be investigated as a homicide.

Law enforcement sources relayed that both the District Attorney and police officials are treating the tragedy as foul play, and and that the R&B scion's boyfriend, Nick Gordon, continues to be a person of interest.

BK's former flame is currently facing a $10 million lawsuit as Brown's estate accused him of domestic abuse. In fact, it was Gordon himself who found Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston's daughter unresponsive and face down in a bathtub at her townhouse back in January.

It's said that first responders noticed injuries on the starlet's body when the story first broke. Apparently, officials are confident that they'll be able to find a link between the initial incident and her recent death.

Hmm, very inneresting.

Nonetheless, Miz Brown will reunite with her mother as she'll be buried next to the icon in New Jersey following her Georgia funeral service. The brunette beauty's death on Sunday was three years after the legend's own untimely death.

Both the Grammy winner and her daughter were found in an eerily similar position prior to their deaths. How sad.

Though it's currently unclear what exactly happened to Bobbi Kristina, we hope the truth will reveal itself sooner than later for the sake of her friends and family. Our thoughts are with her loved ones during this difficult time.
