NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A man who shot and killed four people at a Waffle House in Nashville in 2018 was sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole on Saturday.

Jurors handed down the sentence of Travis Reinking, 33, after hearing about two hours of testimony from family members of the four people killed. They were sobbing and shaking as they talked about their loved ones and how their loss continues to shatter their lives more than three years later. Jurors had the option of giving Reinking the option of parole after serving 51 years in prison.

Naked except for a green jacket, Reinking opened fire inside the restaurant just after 3:20 a.m. on April 22, 2018, killing 29-year-old Taurean Sanderlin; Joey Perez, 20; Akilah Dasilva, 23; and DeEbony Groves, 21. He fled after restaurant boss James Shaw Jr. snatched his assault rifle, sparking a manhunt.

“I’ve always been someone they say is unbreakable because no matter what our family has been through, I’ll always be the one to raise our family,” Patricia Perez said in tears of the loss of her son Joey. . “It broke me.”

On Friday, jurors rejected Reinking’s insanity defense, finding him guilty of 16 counts, including four counts of first-degree murder. The trial opened on Monday after jury selection the previous week. Prosecutors in 2020 indicated they would not seek the death penalty and would seek life without parole.

Reinking’s defense team, which did not call any sentencing witnesses on Saturday, argued for the possibility of parole, saying he was mentally free. Prosecutors argued that evidence shows Reinking planned the attack and wanted to kill everyone at the restaurant.

Prosecutors also drew the attention of jurors to the heartbreaking testimonies of family members. Shaundelle Brooks said her son Akilah Dasilva was a gifted artist, brilliant student and talented musician who built his own computer to work on his music, which he used to urge people to turn away from gun violence.

“He loved his family, but most of all Akilah wanted to live,” Brooks said tearfully. “He wanted to create positive change in this world. He showed compassion, not anger. He spread love, not hate.”

Evidence at trial showed Reinking suffered from schizophrenia and suffered from delusions for years, believing strangers tormented him. He contacted law enforcement several times to report that he was being threatened, stalked and harassed. In July 2017, he was arrested by the Secret Service after venturing unarmed into a restricted area on the grounds of the White House and asking to meet then-President Donald Trump.

The Illinois State Police, where he was living at the time, revoked the identification of the Reinking State gun owner. But that only meant he had to hand over his guns to someone else with a valid ID. Reinking returned the guns to his father, who then returned them to his son.

Since law enforcement refused to take his delusions seriously, Reinking began to feel that they and other random people were part of a conspiracy against him, psychologists testified. Shortly before the attack, he believed someone had drugged him, broken into his apartment, and raped him. Reinking told psychologists that while praying for what to do, he was told by God to go to the Waffle House and shoot three people.

To prove that Reinking was not guilty by reason of insanity, the defense lawyers had to show not only that he suffered from a serious mental illness which prevented him from understanding the wrongfulness of his actions.

Prosecutors presented evidence that Reinking was calm and cooperative after his arrest, able to understand and respond to commands. Although Reinking was naked when he left the crime scene, when he was captured nearly two days later he was fully clothed and carrying a backpack loaded with bottled water, sunscreen, a pistol, ammunition, a Bible and several silver bars. And they mentioned that he asked to speak to a lawyer after his arrest.

Prosecutors suggested Reinking was acting out of revenge. He noted that days before the shooting, Reinking had stolen a BMW from a dealership. Reinking wrote in a diary about his plans to go to Colorado, describing a life in which he would hang out with friends, smoke marijuana, hike in the mountains and “take back” cars and houses so as not to have to work, a prosecutor said. .

After police recovered the BMW the next day, he wrote, “This time I should punish them by taking something they couldn’t take back, a part of their own life,” the prosecutor said.

Prosecutors also pointed to Reinking’s own account of the shooting: He said that after he killed Perez, “I felt like I was going to vomit because it was something God told me to do, but it was wrong.”

The jury also found Reinking guilty of four counts of attempted first degree murder and four counts of unlawful use of a firearm while committing or attempting to commit a dangerous crime. In addition to the four people he killed, he seriously injured Sharita Henderson and Shantia Waggoner. Kayla Shaw and James Shaw Jr., who are unrelated, suffered less serious injuries.

McALESTER, Okla. – Oklahoma executed a man on Thursday for the brutal murder of two hotel workers during a 2001 robbery.

Donald Grant, 46, received a lethal injection at Oklahoma State Penitentiary in McAlester and was pronounced dead at 10:16 a.m. It was the first execution in the United States in 2022 and the third in Oklahoma since the state resumed lethal injections in October following a nearly seven-year hiatus.

“Yo, God, I get it,” Grant said as he lay strapped to the stretcher, uttering his rambling last words for two minutes. “No meds. I didn’t take anything. Brooklyn for life.”

At one point Grant began to sing unintelligible.

Even after Grant was informed that his two minutes to speak his last words were over and the microphone inside the execution chamber was turned off, Grant continued to speak to approximately seven witnesses who witnessed the execution. execution in his name.

A few minutes later, Grant’s eyelids began to droop and he appeared to be asleep. After a doctor entered the room to perform a consciousness check, rubbing his sternum and calling his name, Grant could be heard snoring as a prison official pronounced him unconscious at 10:09 p.m. He seemed to stop breathing about two minutes later.

Shirl Pilcher, the sister of one of Grant’s victims, Brenda McElyea, said her family believed justice had been served.

“While Donald Grant’s execution doesn’t bring Brenda back, it allows us all to finally move on knowing that justice has been served,” Pilcher said after witnessing his execution.

Grant had asked a federal judge to temporarily halt his execution, arguing that he should be reinstated as a plaintiff in a separate lawsuit challenging Oklahoma’s three-drug lethal injection protocol as posing a risk of pain and of unconstitutional suffering. But a federal judge and a three-judge panel at the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver previously denied that request. The United States Supreme Court denied Grant’s request on Wednesday.

Several Oklahoma death row inmates with pending execution dates have sought to delay their executions after John Grant convulsed on the stretcher and vomited after receiving the first dose of the sedative midazolam during his execution in October.

John Grant’s execution was the state’s first since problems with state lethal injection protocols in 2014 and 2015 led to a de facto moratorium. Richard Glossip was just hours away from his execution in September 2015 when prison officials realized they had been given the deadly wrong drug. It was later learned that the same bad drug was used to execute an inmate in January 2015.

The drug medleys followed a botched execution in April 2014 in which inmate Clayton Lockett struggled on a stretcher before dying 43 minutes after his lethal injection – and after the state prisons chief ordered executioners to stop.

At a clemency hearing in November, Donald Grant admitted to killing Brenda McElyea and Felicia Suzette Smith so there would be no witnesses to his robbery at the Del City Hotel. Court records show that the two women were shot and stabbed, and Smith was also bludgeoned. Prosecutors say the two women also begged him to spare their lives before he killed them.

At the November hearing, he expressed ‘deep and sincere remorse’ and apologized for the killings, but the state’s Pardons and Parole Board voted 4-1 against the clemency recommendation .

“I can’t change that,” he said of the crime when addressing the board. “If I could, I would, but I can’t change that.”

Two of Donald Grant’s lawyers, Susan Otto and Emma Rolls of the Federal Public Defender’s Office, argued that he was mentally ill and had suffered brain damage that made him a candidate for clemency. They also discussed Grant’s childhood growing up in a New York housing project during the crack epidemic of the 1980s, a time when he was frequently beaten and his family members suffered from alcoholism, drug addiction and of mental illness.

But the council also heard from members of McElyea’s family, who tearfully urged them to reject clemency for him.

Pilcher, McElyea’s sister, recalled the pain she felt when she had to tell their father that McElyea had been killed.

“I had to call my dad and tell him his daughter, his granddaughter, was dead,” Pilcher said. “I had never seen him cry, but that night I heard him cry and it broke my heart.”

The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday considered whether to let Alabama execute a death row inmate who claims intellectual disability combined with state inattention cost him a chance to avoid the injection lethal. The state executed Matthew Reeves, 43, by lethal injection Thursday night.

Hisar, January 17

Notorious for hooch manufacturing and drug trafficking, the village of Piranwali, located just 12 km from the district headquarters, is undergoing reform.

A special campaign by the district police has brought hope to families affected by drug addiction. The police, after interviewing nearly 200 families, identified 25 young chitta addicts.

ASI Seema Devi said, “A six-member team visits the village twice a day to dispense drugs to drug addicts and provide counseling to them and their family members.

Cops launch campaign to rehabilitate youth

  • Piranwali village traditionally known for making booze
  • After a crackdown, some villagers got into drug trafficking
  • As a result, young locals became addicted, which ruined many families
  • Hisar Police launched drug rehabilitation campaign

Sharing the miseries of an affected family, she said 24-year-old Sonu (name changed) was an excellent kabaddi player. “He became addicted to drugs about two years ago. He weighs only 45 kg. His family has gone through very difficult times.

LAHORE:

Ruling party ministers on Sunday opened a new acrimonious chapter against the opposition by dropping startling allegations that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Shehbaz Sharif was ‘begging for a deal’ for four members of his family, and sought to blame Nawaz Sharif for the price spike.

The fiery tone and finger-pointing came as inflation once again becomes the rallying cry for opposition parties – a battle line they are seizing to topple the Imran Khan-led government.

Addressing a press conference in Lahore, Minister of Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said soaring inflation and economic difficulties facing the country were one of the lingering symptoms of the policies undertaken by former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

He claimed that the inflation was a by-product of the massive record loans borrowed by the PML-N and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) governments during their respective tenures. From 1947 to 2008, the Pakistani government took out loans worth 6 trillion rupees, but from 2008 to 2018 the PPP and PML-N governments took out loans worth 23 trillion rupees, he said. said, adding that the PTI had paid $32 billion in debt service after his arrival. in power.

According to Fawad, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif lived in one of the most expensive properties in London while former President Asif Ali Zardari rents the most expensive flats during his visits to London. The federal minister explained that the working class was being crushed by inflation because they were not getting raises. “When spending exceeds income, inflation looks high.”

“The PTI will win the next general elections”

The Federal Minister appeared optimistic about the prospects of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) returning to power in 2023 as he criticized opposition parties for their “futile” anti-government protests, noting that the opposition was divided. He pointed out that with the exception of the ruling party, the PTI, no political party will be able to present its candidates for all the seats – 1,100 in total – in the next general elections.

Talking about health cards, he said Sehat Insaf card will end discrimination in health sector. He urged the private sector to invest in the health sector for its improvement. The health card will benefit the working and middle class segments the most, he added.

“The government does not care about the tactics of the opposition”

Joining the chorus of other party ministers, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi also sought to assuage nervousness over inflation by countering opposition rhetoric on soaring prices.

He said inflation was a “temporary phenomenon” which the ruling party would manage to tame before 2023. “The government is not indifferent to people and well aware of their difficulties.”

“We fight crises with determination. No matter how big the opposition marches, there will be no internal change or end of government. The opposition will face defeat. The democratic PTI government will complete its term, the senior diplomat remarked. He expressed his satisfaction and hinted that the intentions of the PTI government were positive. “The current government has the merit of not having had a corruption scandal.”

He observed that the government was trying to solve public problems. The global economy has also been in crisis for two years due to the coronavirus. However, he maintained that the difficulties were temporary.

“Shahbaz asked for an agreement for four family members”

Meanwhile, the prime minister’s special assistant for political communication Shahbaz Gill claimed that opposition leader in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif had “asked for a deal for four people” from his family. Speaking to the media in Faisalabad on Sunday, Gill said that as part of the proposed deal, a “pardon” had been requested for PML-N leaders – Shehbaz Sharif, Hamza Shehbaz, Maryam Nawaz and Nawaz Sharif.

Without sharing details and evidence of the claims, Gill claimed that the deal was sought for PML-N supremo Nawaz, Maryam, Shahbaz and his son Hamza. “This is the last plea Shahbaz has made – an offer made up of four people and a promise that even Maryam will not engage in politics,” Gill said. He added that the PML-N chairman had also pledged to travel to London if his “proposal” was accepted.

The Prime Minister’s aide said the PML-N leaders were eager to flee the country. “But Prime Minister Imran Khan will not let them escape and they will all go to jail,” he added. He said that Shehbaz would be put behind bars very soon, saying that a suspicious transaction of 4 billion rupees had been traced recently from the bank account of the PML-N leader’s peon.

“We won’t even give you a boiled potato, and here you are asking for a chicken burger deal,” he added.

The Prime Minister’s aide further claimed to have held three meetings with Nawaz during the latter’s hospitalization in Pakistan. “He would ask permission to allow him to let go.”

GARDAI investigating the murder of Offaly schoolteacher Ashling Murphy continued to examine a home in the county this afternoon.

Specialist officers remained at the residence to carry out an intensive search while at the same time it is understood a property in Dublin was also seized for a similar purpose.

The moves came as an investigation involving a new suspect was vigorously pursued.

Gardai believe a bicycle and a male cyclist are key to making a breakthrough in an investigation which took a significant turn once the former suspect, Radu Floricel, a 39-year-old man from Tullamore, was released on Thursday evening.

He was dropped from the investigation but told the Tullamore Tribune on Thursday he remained concerned his name had not been completely erased from the public mind.

CCTV footage of a man on a bicycle, apparently on the streets of Tullamore town, has been closely scrutinized by gardai.

These images have been widely shared on social messaging apps over the past two days.

In a statement on Friday, An Garda Siochana said “significant progress” had been made in the investigation.

The gardai did not confirm any specific details for operational reasons, but renewed the call for any information on a Falcon Storm mountain bike with straight handlebars and a distinctive yellow/green front fork (see image below ).
