US tycoon gets life in prison for killing of his best friend
US real estate scion Robert Durst was sentenced Thursday to life in prison with no possibility of parole for the killing of his best friend. Durst, a multi-millionaire who was the subject of an explosive HBO documentary entitled "The Jinx," has always denied charges that he shot that friend, Susan Berman, in the back of the head in 2000 at her Beverly Hills home to keep her from talking to police about the disappearance of his wife two decades earlier. But last month, a jury in Los Angeles took just eight hours to find the 78-year-old guilty of the execution-style slaying of Berman.
A 41-year-oldman charged with his wife while the couple was in celebrating their first wedding anniversary has pleaded not guilty.
Joseph Ferlazzo appeared in Vermont Superior Court in Burlington via video conference Wednesday from the state prison in St. Albans and was ordered held without bail pending a hearing.
Ferlazzo’s defense attorney William Kidney entered the not guilty plea on behalf of his client. He declined to comment when reached by Fox News.
Joseph Ferlazzo told detectives on Tuesday he fatally shot his wife Emily Ferlazzo, 22, Saturday morning inside their camper van in Bolton and he later dismembered her body with a saw, police said.
Outspoken US Marine's defense team says guilty plea shows Pentagon what accountability looks like
The defense team for the U.S. Marine who went viral for social media posts calling out military leaders stressed accountability on the first day of his court martial hearing."This case began with a call for accountability by Stu Scheller," Tim Parlatore, one of Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller's attorneys, told Fox News.
Chittenden County State’s attorney Sarah George said the evidence of guilt was great.
Police said there had been "a history of domestic violence within the relationship and Emily has been seen with scratches and bruises."
Joseph Ferlazzo told investigators Tuesday that he and his wife got into an argument inside their camper that got physical. Emily Ferlazzo later stopped hitting and kicking him and she laid on a bed in the camper.
After five to 10 minutes, Joseph Ferlazzo retrieved a handgun, "jumped on top of her" and shot her twice in the head, according to an affidavit of probable cause obtained by Fox News. He told investigators he began to have an anxiety attack, placed a garbage bag over her head, and moved her body to the bathroom of the camper, the affidavit said.
Lovelorn Arts Prof Imprisoned for Butchering Colleague With Fire Poke
A professor at a New England liberal arts college for women, who used a fire poker, rock and pruning shears to torture a colleague for hours, was sentenced on Wednesday to at least a decade in prison. Rie Hachiyanagi, 50, an art professor at Mount Holyoke College in western Massachusetts’ Pioneer Valley, pleaded guilty in Franklin County Superior Court on Friday to nine charges in connection with the attack on fellow professor Lauret Savoy at Savoy’s home, according to Northwestern District Attorney David Sullivan.
On Saturday morning, Joseph said he took the camper from Bolton to a friend’s house in St. Albans, according to police. About 12 to 15 hours after the shooting, he used a handsaw to dismember her body, he told police. He then placed the body parts in garbage bags, which stayed in the camper.
Joseph Ferlazzo was located by police at a St. Albans convenience store on Tuesday. During a subsequent interview, he told investigators he had killed his wife and dismembered her body.
When police searched the camper they located eight plastic bags that contained what appeared to be human remains. The remains were sent to the office of the Vermont Chief Medical Examiner for autopsy. Police also located the weapon believed used to kill Emily Ferlazzo and the saw used to dismember her.
Police began searching for Emily Ferlazzo on Monday after her family reported her missing.
