Pregnant woman stabbed to death in bed on beach holiday
A pregnant woman was stabbed to death in her bed as she slept alongside her husband and toddler son at a luxury resort in South Africa. Karen Turner was killed a day after celebrating her 31st birthday, and her husband Matthew, 33, was knifed several times in the frenzied attack at around 3am on Tuesday. Two men armed with knives broke into the family's self-contained chalet overlooking the beach at the Hluleka Nature Reserve on the Wild Coast in the Eastern Cape. Ms Turner, a primary school teacher from Underberg, died almost instantly, police said. The couple's unborn child also died.
A Texas wife and husband with a combined age of 211 have been named the oldest couple in the world by the Guinness Book of Records.
The announcement comes just one month before John Henderson, 106, and Charlotte, 105, of Travis County, are due to celebrate their 80th wedding anniversary on December 15.
When the couple tied the knot, it was during the Great Depression in 1939.
Times have changed a lot since then; but their love has stood the test of time.
And the secret of a long life and happy marriage?
'Live life in moderation and be cordial to your spouse,' John told CNN.
