Ionia teen pleads no contest in fatal stabbing

Ionia teen pleads no contest in fatal stabbing IONIA, Mich. — A man has pleaded no contest to manslaughter in the fatal 2017 stabbing of a 16-year-old boy in Ionia. Kyler Bogert, 19, entered the plea Wednesday in the death of Daniel Johnson, who he was accused of stabbing in the neck during a fight. He also pleaded guilty to a charge of criminal sexual conduct from an unrelated May 2017 incident. He was originally charged with second-degree murder, but prosecutors dropped that charge after receiving a report that provided more information on Bogert’s state of mind and mental illness diagnosis. Prosecutors said the manslaughter charge was more appropriate.

A Georgia teen is the winner of this year’s Doodle for Google contest “When I grow up, I hope to care for my mom as much as she cared for me my entire life,” Popo wrote, according to Google . I wanted to focus more on a message of helping out my awesome mother more than anything else.”

The winning doodle is featured on Google 's website on Tuesday, August 13. "I wanted to focus more on a message of helping out my awesome mother "With Doodles , we aim to celebrate a diverse mix of topics that reflect Google 's personality, teach people something new, and most importantly, are

The National Doodle for Google contest started in 2008, and this year's finalists included images of magic kites, space travel, comic books and farming, in addition to Popo's message of family.

Popo says she's been interested in art since she was 3 but was suffering from a "massive art block" during her senior year of high school. She was inspired to honor her mother as the clock was ticking away on submitting her art.

"I came up with the idea at the last minute, actually the day of the deadline," she said. "I looked at the photograph of my mother (the real version that inspired the drawing) and thought, 'Hey, why don't I reverse it?' I wanted to focus more on a message of helping out my awesome mother more than anything else."

Popo's Doodle will be displayed on Google.com for one day, and she'll get a $30,000 college scholarship and a trip to Google's headquarters in Mountain View, California. Popo, who was valedictorian of Arabia Mountain High School in DeKalb County, Georgia, says her interests lie in literature and learning more about herself.
