Sheriff: Accused serial killer Lucky Ward convicted of capital murder

  Sheriff: Accused serial killer Lucky Ward convicted of capital murder A Harris County jury on Monday found accused serial killer Lucky Ward guilty in two strangling deaths from 2010, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said in a tweet. The jury will now hear evidence in the punishment phase of the capital murder trial and decide whether to sentence Ward to life in prison or death. Prosecutors and defense attorneys brought forward two weeks worth of evidence in the first phase of the trial. He was convicted Monday of killing Reita  Long, a woman who was homeless at the time of her death, and a transgender woman named Charlie, whose legal name was Carlos Rodriguez.

A former Pennsylvania men's basketball coach has been handed a 15-year show-cause penalty stemming from major ethical conduct violations, the NCAA announced Wednesday.

The punishment comes after the father of a prospective recruit gave the coach at least $250,000 in an attempt to increase the likelihood of his son's admittance to Penn, according to the Association's release.

Though unnamed in the release, the ex-coach in question is almost certainly Jerome Allen, who coached at Penn from 2009-15. Allen testified in March 2019 as a government witness in Miami federal court that he accepted money from healthcare executive Philip Esformes between 2013 and 2015.

  Man Visiting Apartment Unit In Allen Shot; 3 Suspects In Custody, 1 At Large A 39-year-old man who was visiting another resident was shot inside an apartment unit, but there is no word yet on his condition. He was a visitor of an apartment resident and suffered multiple gunshot wounds, police said. © Provided by CBS Dallas Police said three suspects are in custody.  One suspect took off and has not been caught.Allen Police described the suspect on their Facebook page:He was described by officers on scene as a Black Male wearing a black hoodie and black pants. He was last seen running west from the apartment complex.

"I got his son into Penn; I got his son into Wharton," Allen said at the time, according to the Miami Herald's Jay Weaver. "None of that would have happened without me."

Allen's 15-year show-cause order means "any NCAA member school employing him must restrict him from any athletically related duties unless it shows cause why the restrictions should not apply."

Should Allen be hired as a coach in the year following the completion of his show-cause penalty, the hiring school must also suspend him for the first 50% of the season.

The 47-year-old is presently an assistant coach on Brad Stevens' staff with the Boston Celtics.

Penn's men's basketball program is facing discipline of its own, though it's relatively minor compared to Allen's. The Quakers' current staff will be banned from men's basketball recruiting communications from May 10-20 and May 31-June 10 this year. The team must also pay a $5,000 fine and will be under probation for two years.
