Authorities described a grisly crime scene: 18-year-old Holli Jeffcoat's bloody body on the floor, her throat slit and uterus removed. In March, authorities arrested Holli's stepfather, James Holland, 39, for allegedly continuously sexually abusing Holli and her 15-year-old sister over a period of years – starting when Holli was 12 and her sister was 9.

Pakistani police on Thursday arrested 15 members of a tribal council accused of ordering the burning alive of a young girl for helping a couple to elope in a so-called "honor killing", police said. The 16-year-old girl was set on fire last week in the town of Donga Gali, about 50 km (30 miles) northeast of the capital, Islamabad, on the orders of the council, said district police chief Saeed Wazir. Police said the honor killing was ordered as punishment for what the council deemed irreparable damage to the village's reputation. Jirgas, or tribal councils, are often called in Pakistan's northwestern regions as a means of local conflict resolution, but their edicts have no legal standing under Pakistani law.

Now the other Olsen is taking her and her sister’s success at The Row and some of that Full House money and buying a great big apartment. Olsen entered into a contract to buy a 3,000-square-foot, floor-through unit at 37 East 12th Street in Greenwich Village for $7.3 million, according to the Wall Street Journal. Her new building was built in 1898 and used to play host to an art gallery. But Edward Minskoff bought the eight-story edifice for $26.6 million and turned it into a monument to privacy and luxury. Her two bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms features a private
A food-packaging company in Washington state has expanded a voluntary recall — which at one time included just 11 products — to encompass nearly 360 different organic and non-organic frozen fruits and vegetables that may be contaminated with the deadly Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. On Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced the outbreak, which has hospitalized eight people across three states. Two of those patients, one from Maryland and the other from Washington state, died, though listeriosis was not considered to be the cause, the CDC said. The other cases were reported in California. The products in question are frozen fruits and vegetables from 42 different brands
Though the girl was supposed to attend an after-school program on Monday, the note she wrote and delivered to the staff herself worked.
