A 102-year-old woman accused of killing her 100-year-old roommate in a Massachusetts nursing home nearly five years ago is facing a second-degree murder charge.
Laura Lundquist — the oldest murder defendant in state history — was
98 when she was charged in 2009 on allegations that she strangled
Elizabeth Barrow, who was found with a plastic bag tied around her head
in her bed at the Brandon Woods nursing home in Dartmouth.
Lundquist had a longstanding diagnosis of dementia and was ruled
incompetent to stand trial. Since her indictment, she has been held at a
state psychiatric hospital.
Barrow’s son, Scott, said he realizes Lundquist will likely never stand trial in his mother’s death.
“It would be like prosecuting a 2-year-old,” he said. “It’s just an
awful thing that happened. How could she be held accountable fo…

looks like he may have lost like 100 pounds or something dramatic. Of

Radio is in a period where only the ‘blings’ and ‘blingers’ are getting all the attention.
This must be the worst time to listen to
radio in Nigeria. Consider some of the on-air-personalities, all they do
is talk about what their favourite celebrities are wearing.
How easily manipulated and distracted can they be? A fake accent has never been more glorified than today.
With on-air-personalities chasing
celebrity status themselves, radio listeners are never going to get any
unbiased assessment of issues. The few independent thinkers amongst them
who provide this unbiased assessment are being mocked and called boring
people. How do you listen to an OAP on radio who only talks about cars,
money and women for hours?
American Singer Keyshia Cole is officially pulling the plug on her

them any day now. The couple has a 4-year-old son.
Boobie had 2 wedding ceremonies ... the first in May 2011, and then a
bigger -- aka expensive -- one four months later in Hawaii. One divorce
will get the job done though.
Interestingly, Cole just released a
new single called "She" which seems to allude to a female lover: "Down

This is 11pm in the night and do you know what I am thinking about? Those little girls, where they
are and what could be happening to them. It is just unfair. They are too young. I wish I could offer myself in exchange,”
When she was reminded that the girls could be making out time as sex slaves, the singer/actress retorted : They are between 12 and15 year old girls for Christ sake. I am older and more experienced. Even if 10 to12 men have to take me every night, I don’t care. Just release these girls and let them go back to their parents.”

Remember earlier this month when Justin Bieber supposedly turned his life back over to God and even got baptized in a bathtub? Yeah, that happened. And then he apparently went out to a nightclub with Selena Gomez, because for some unknown reason, she can't seem to quit him.
OK, keeping that in context, please prepare for the most recent news
about this couple that everyone but them wishes would break up -- Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez attended Bible study together. yes.. Bible study.
I don't even know what to make of this information.
Apparently the "openly affectionate" pair attended Bible study together in L.A. on Wednesday June 18. A source told Us Magazine
that "they were very lovey dovey and cute," and they "came and left
together with a few friends." Also they "sat next to each other and
listened to [Pastor Judah Smith]'s sermon.".
Nigeria's popular talking drummer Ara revealed that she told Kefee about her death..Here is what she told Vanguard:

immediately called her and narrated it to her, I also appealed to her
not to make a joke of it….the rest is history.
Early this year, I had a dream and contacted Efe of NOW music as he’s
the only one I could call and told him to please organise a forum for
all musicians to assemble and pray against death amongst us (please
confirm from Efe). It’s sad we had to lose my girlfriend, sister and
colleague…so sad. When a revelation comes like that, it means there is a
way out. Once again, we need to come together as a body under one roof
to rebuke and pray about this revelation I had early this year. Yes, we
all have different sources of prayer but this is a prayer we all must

During a phone call with Reese while she was in the hospital, he mentioned “the symptoms of HIV,” but she didn’t think she had the disease because Reese told her that he was “clean.” She was later diagnosed with the disease and eventually talked to police.
