Jurors deliberating fate of Texas teen charged in parents’ fatal shooting appear deadlocked

Jurors deliberating fate of Texas teen charged in parents’ fatal shooting appear deadlocked After more than five hours of deliberation, jurors appear to be deadlocked in the case of a Houston teen standing trial in the deaths of his parents. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); The jurors are deciding the fate of Antonio Armstrong, Jr., who was 16 when police said he looked down the barrel of a gun and fatally shot his mother and father in their Bellaire-area home three years ago.

Carolyn Warmus, the schoolteacher convicted of the 1989 murder of her lover's wife in Greenburgh, New York, could be released from prison on parole as early as June 10. Warmus has served more than 25 years behind bars in a maximum facility in Bedford Hills.

Prosecutors said she shot and killed Betty Jeanne Solomon in the victim's home in Greenburgh, New York on Jan. 15, 1989. She was sentenced to 25 years to life in 1992, but she has maintained her innocence.

His daughter was murdered. This is why he sat down feet from her killer and forgave him.

His daughter was murdered. This is why he sat down feet from her killer and forgave him. It took more than 20 years for Donald Lacy to meet with his daughter's killer through a process called restorative justice, which brings crime survivors face-to-face with the people who harmed them or their loved ones.

Speaking with CBS New York three years ago, Warmus said she was framed and that if a trial were held today, there would be a different outcome.

"First of all, I don't even know if there would have been an indictment because there are so many more scientific advances," she said.

Initially, her lover Paul Solomon was the prime suspect in the shooting of his wife Betty Jeanne Solomon. His multiple affairs, a questionable life insurance policy and a lucrative movie contract brought him under scrutiny.

At trial, there were questions about a call for help that Betty Jeanne Solomon made before dying.

"The caller shouted 'he's killing' as opposed to 'she's killing me,'" attorney Ben Gershman said.

Whitey Bulger's prison warden: 'I think he wanted to die'

Whitey Bulger's prison warden: 'I think he wanted to die' The elderly ex-crime boss refused to see a doctor for his ailing heart before his transfer to a West Virginia prison where he was murdered.

Warmus' first trial ended wtih a hung jury after 12 days of deliberations. She was found guilty of second-degree murder a year later.

Her second trial landed her in Bedford Hills — a maximum security prison. A media circus surrounded the Warmus case, later prompting two television movies and a book. The case was dubbed the "Fatal Attraction" killing after the 1987 movie.

Warmus said in 2016 if her trial were held now, there would be a different outcome.

"First of all I don't even know if there would have been an indictment because there are so many more scientific advances," she said. "I'm in prison for 25 years to life because I dated a married man."

In prison letters, James ‘Whitey’ Bulger writes of determination to stay alive.
A batch of Bulger’s prison letters, made available to the Globe, offer fresh insight into Bulger’s state of mind — by turns, wry, emotional, and bitter — as he neared the end. They also offer a chronicle of how his health was deteriorating in solitary confinement at a penitentiary in Florida, an account which, if accurate, contradicts the authorities who claimed his condition had dramatically improved, making him eligible for a transfer to the prison in West Virginia where he was murdered.
