Judge, killer in tears during hearing for Greensboro girl's death A sentencing hearing for a man who pleaded guilty in the death of a 16-year-old girl made both the judge and the killer cry. The News & Record of Greensboro reports Superior Court Judge Lora Cubbage grew teary eyed as she sentenced 21-year-old Hajji DeQuan Johnson to at least 16 years in prison for second-degree murder. Cubbage referred to both Johnson and his victim, Sateria Zoe Fleming, as "our babies." She said one is buried and one she must "put in a cage." Both Cubbage and Johnson are black. A defense attorney said a woman told Johnson to shoot two teens who tried to steal marijuana. Fleming was killed in March 2018.

UPDATE: COLUMBIA, S.C. — A mother whose ex-husband killed their five children has told a South Carolina jury that he should not die for the murders.

Amber Kyzer says the mother in her wants Timothy Jones Jr. to feel all the pain and fear she and her children felt when they were killed in August 2014.

But Kyzer said that speaking on behalf of her kids, she knows they loved their father and there shouldn't be more pain by executing him.

Kyzer testified Tuesday for the defense in the penalty phase of Jones' trial. The same jury that convicted Jones of five counts of murder last week is deciding whether he gets the death penalty or life without parole.

The mother dissolved into sobs when she testified last month about writing her kids a letter apologizing for not being there for them after the couple divorced.

EARLIER: COLUMBIA, S.C. — Defense lawyers for a South Carolina father who killed his five children called a social worker to testify Tuesday about his chaotic upbringing, from how his father was born to a 12-year-old victim to how his mother said she was locked in a closet during a voodoo ritual.

Serial killer may be targeting women in Detroit: What we know

Serial killer may be targeting women in Detroit: What we know Police said the killer is a man who is targeting women in their 50s. He lures them into a vacant home or building, rapes them and then kills them. How many victims are there? So far three. Maybe more. All of them are women and all of them were sex workers. It is unclear whether the killer is seeking to kill only prostitutes, or if they are just easier targets.

Permission for social worker Deborah Grey's testimony during the sentencing phase of Timothy Jones Jr.'s trial was fiercely disputed. Prosecutors earlier persuaded the judge not to let her testify before a jury convicted Jones of five counts of murder for the killings in his Lexington home in August 2014.

The same jury must decide if Jones gets the death penalty or life without parole.

Grey testified Tuesday only after hours of argument over what she could and could not say. During the sentencing phase, the defense has wider latitude to try to show what might have led to the crime.

Grey detailed three generations of rapes, molestation by family members, gunshots, stabbings, drug deals, voodoo rituals, prostitution, frequent screaming fights and cursing at children and how Jones' mother dipped him in ice water baths and gave him laxatives to try to make him behave.

Grey started with Jones' grandmother, who was raped by her stepfather and gave birth at age 12 to Jones' father.

Mebane family one step closer to closure; suspected killer’s court date set

Mebane family one step closer to closure; suspected killer’s court date set GREENSBORO, N.C. — A mother fighting to put her son's accused killer behind bars. 22-year-old Brandon Frye was shot and killed at the Stonesthrow Apartments in Greensboro on Oct. 3, 2017. Police arrested Jmal Townsend shortly after and charged him with first degree murder and robbery with a dangerous weapon. Nearly two years after Frye's death, Townsend is set to go to trial Oct. 21 of this year. "You took someone's life. He don't even deserve to be on this Earth again walking the streets because I'm afraid he may do it again. I wouldn't want no other mother to go through what I'm going through," said Lisa Whitfield, Brandon Frye's mother.

Lawyers are detailing the chaotic upbringing of a South Carolina father who killed his five children as they ask a jury to spare his life. Grey testified Jones' mother reported her father molested her and locked her in a closet with a dead chicken dripping blood on her as part of a voodoo ritual .

The jury heard of three generations of rapes , molestation by relatives, violence, drugs, voodoo rituals , prostitution, and fights. A father who killed his five children had a chaotic childhood with a father conceived of rape and a schizophrenic mother who was abused with voodoo rituals as a child, a

The chaos extended to Jones' parents. His mother had schizophrenia and went into a mental institution when Jones was 3. She spent decades there.

Her psychiatric records showed she told doctors her father molested her and locked her in a closet with a dead chicken dripping blood on her as part of a voodoo ritual, Gray said.

Gray began to testify about a stillborn infant birthed by Jones' mother that the family said appeared to be part of a self-induced abortion attempt. But Circuit Judge Eugene Griffith stopped her before she could give details.

Griffith frequently told Grey "move along" or "keep moving" when she tried to go into details about Jones' family. Tuesday marked the fourth week of testimony in Jones' trial.

Jones' lawyers are trying to show he struggled from undiagnosed mental illness and cracked when he became a single father of five after his marriage failed. His wife left him for a teenager who lived next door after she tired of Jones using religion to control what she wore and when she could leave their home.

Jones said in a confession he felt his 6-year-old Nahtahn was trying to attack him by conspiring with his ex-wife, and he exercised the boy until he collapsed and died after he broke an electrical outlet.

Woman's Body Found In Vacant East Side Home Amid Search For Victims Of Serial Killer

Woman's Body Found In Vacant East Side Home Amid Search For Victims Of Serial Killer  Detroit police are investigating after another woman's body was discovered in a vacant home on the east side as authorities continue to search for victims of a possible serial killer in the city.

Prosecutors argued at trial and during the mitigation hearing that Madison deserved to die because of the circumstances surrounding the killings .

Grey detailed three generations of rapes , molestation by family members, gunshots, stabbings, drug deals, voodoo rituals , prostitution, frequent screaming fights and cursing at children and how Jones' mother dipped him in ice water baths and gave him laxatives to try to make him behave.

Several hours later, Jones said he decided to kill the other children, strangling 8-year-old Merah and 7-year-old Elias with his hands and using a belt to choke 2-year-old Gabriel and 1-year-old Abigail because his hands were too big.

Prosecutors said Jones was instead an evil, selfish father who killed Nahtahn in a rage and then the rest of his children because he did not want his ex-wife to have them.

Both sides have blamed alcohol and drug use for the killings. Prosecutors said Jones used synthetic marijuana instead of caring for his kids. Defense lawyers said Jones used drugs to try and treat his undiagnosed schizophrenia , but it made the mental condition worse.

Jones was only doing what he saw his father and grandmother and their families do all their lives — self-medicate to deal with what seemed like an endless barrage of sadness and anger, Grey testified.

"They have been through a lot. But there's a lot of love and a lot of caring between these folks," Grey said.

The trial is being livestreamed from the Lexington County courthouse.
