Police in southeastern Kentucky say officers shot a woman brandishing a handgun after she allegedly killed her husband and two teenage daughters at their home.
Whitley County Sheriff Colan Harrell says officers were called to the home of Larry and Courtney Taylor Friday night after a relative went there to check on the family.
Harrell told The Lexington Herald-Leader that 41-year-old Courtney Taylor pointed a gun at two deputies who arrived at the home. One of the deputies shot her. She was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital with life-threatening injuries. Her condition was not known Saturday afternoon.
Police found three people dead inside the home, Larry Taylor, 51, and the couple's two teenage daughters.
Harrell says the family members had been dead for several hours before being found.
It's a disturbing notion, but much about Sidnei Ramis de Araújo is hardly unusual, when it comes to gender-based violence.
His father described him as “a sweet person, who never smoked or drank.” As anthropologist Debora Diniz pointed out in a op-ed for Brasil Post (Brazil's version of The Huffington Post), “madness does not explain the misogynistic fantasies in the killer’s mind” — even if he was a “psychopath.” Diniz added: “Sidnei killed because he couldn’t stand the break-up or the law enforcement against his patriarchal abuse, because he lost his domestic domain as the sovereign.”
And Sidnei was not alone. After the news of the massacre broke out, several people tried to “make sense” of the killer’s motives. Some even justified his actions. This time without satire, the parody website Sensacionalista published several comments circulating online in support of the shooter:
A woman who reported to authorities that she performed a sexual favor to avoid a ticket after being pulled over in Jefferson County has confessed she fabricated the story, police say.
There was no sexual favor, and in fact, she wasn’t pulled over that day, according to Jefferson County Sheriff David L. Marshak. He said authorities spent more than 160 man-hours investigating her claim before she admitted fabricating the story.
The woman, Brenda L. Hawkins, of Arnold, was charged Thursday with making a false report. She was being held in lieu of $1,000, cash-only bail.

Uber driver Keith Avila were driving a female teenager and two adult women when he heard something devious and off with their conversation. Avila told ABC13, “They started like talking, like saying everything that was going on. Like what they’re doing, child sex trafficking.” That’s when he realized that the girl, who was later found out is only a 16-year-old, is a victim of child sex trafficking. Avila said that he dropped them off at the Holiday Inn in Elk Grove, California. The two women were pimping the girl to pedophiles. As soon as they got off the vehicle, Avila called the police. Avila said, “Police arrived fast. They don’t play. They do not play. Not when you’re doing child sex trafficking.” Avila recounted the conversation he heard from the backseat: “‘You’re gonna hug them, you’re gonna pat them down, make sure they don’t have no weapons. You ask him, ‘Do you have any weapons?’ And then ask for the donations. Say ‘Do you have my donation?’ Get the donation first. And then before you go in and do anything, get the donation first.’” The two women were later identified by the police. Destiny Pettway and Maria Westly are charged for offenses related to pandering and pimping. Another suspect connected with the two is also arrested. Disney Vang was charged for sex with minor.

AZIZ OSMANOGLU and his wife Sehabat Kocabas were both born in Turkey around 40 years ago, but they are long-standing residents of the city of Basel. Mr Osmanoglu migrated to Switzerland at the age of 10, but later moved back to pursue advanced Islamic studies in his homeland, where he met his spouse. Eventually, he brought her to Basel.
For many years, the couple has been in dispute with the local authorities over whether or not their two older daughters, born in 1999 and 2001, should have been obliged to take part in mixed swimming along with the other boys and girls when they were at primary school. In 2010 they were obliged to pay 1400 Swiss Francs (about as many American dollars) as a penalty for keeping their daughters away from sessions at the pool.
This week, the European Court of Human Rights gave its verdict on the case. It upheld the right of the regional authorities of Basel to impose the fine, vindicating the view of the Swiss government. Any infringement of the family's religious freedom was over-ridden by the authorities’ right and duty to provide children with basic education, the judges found. This included imparting the ability not only to swim but to live together in a cohesive society. As the verdict noted, “in the [Swiss] government’s view, if it was only a question of learning to swim, compulsory lessons would stop as soon as all pupils were able to swim...[But] the very fact of engaging in this activity together with other pupils is an important element of the course...” A significant feature of the case was that the school authorities had gone some way to accommodate the family’s sensitivities: they agreed that the girls could wear a head-to-toe burkini (the garment which caused uproar on French beaches last summer) and change in a strictly gender-segregated area.
