A 31-year-old man in Blue Ash, OH stabbed his longtime girlfriend to death, then dragged her body to their bed and “talked to it for hours,” according to Cincinnati.com.

On Friday morning, Nicholas Roelser withdrew a previous plea of not guilty by reason of insanity and entered a guilty plea in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court on charges of stabbing Colleen Perry to death sometime in the late night or early morning hours of Jan. 1 or 2.

Perry was reportedly on the verge of leaving Roesler after a years-long relationship. The couple went out with friends on Jan. 1 and returned home.

Roesler admitted to police that he searched through Perry’s phone when she fell asleep or passed out in the back seat of her car. What he found there enraged him.

He drove Perry’s car to a secluded location and began to stab the 27-year-old with a knife. Perry woke up and began to struggle, but Roesler continued to stab and strangle her until she died.

“Roesler admitted the killing to police, according to the documents,” said Cincinnati.com. “He told them he carried her body into their apartment and placed her body in the bedroom. He told police he cleaned Perry’s body and then talked to her for several hours after she was dead.”

Roesler was arrested on Jan. 3 after a park ranger interrupted him during a purported suicide attempt. Roesler drove away, but the ranger reported his vehicle to police.

Prosecutors intend to sentence Roesler to prison for 18 years to life at his sentencing hearing on Feb. 8.

Published

A Rhode Island driver is being accused of hitting a 63-year-old man with his car after the man had confronted him about not wearing a face mask into a local convenience store.

Local news station WJAR 10 reports that 63-year-old William Beauchene got into an argument this week with a 30-year-old man named Ralph Buontempo, who had gone into the convenience store in the town of Lincoln, Rhode Island without wearing a mask.

Witnesses told police that the two men began yelling obscenities at one another, and that at one point Buontempo slapped a cup of coffee out of Beauchene's hand, which then splashed all over the store manager who had come outside to try to deescalate the confrontation.

Trump has rolled out a ‘new scam’ amid internal turmoil over Fauci: op-ed

Published

on

Writing in the Washington Post this Thursday, Greg Sargent takes a look at the Trump's administration's recent walkback of its attempts to undermine its top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, after they discovered that it wasn't being received by the public so well.

According to Sargent, President Trump's "new scam" is to present the image that his administration actually respects Fauci's advice while continuing to undermine him behind the scenes.

"What’s really going on here is a kind of two-step, a double game," Sargent writes. "Trump and his advisers want him to reap the political benefits of appearing to harbor general respect for Fauci’s expertise, while simultaneously continuing to undermine Fauci’s actual claims about the threat the novel coronavirus will continue to pose — because those claims badly undermine Trump’s reelection message."

2020 Election

GOP strategist who wrote party’s 2012 autopsy says she hopes the party loses this year

Published

on

Former Republican strategist Sally Bradshaw, who wrote the GOP's so-called "autopsy" after its 2012 election losses, is hoping the party comes crashing down in defeat this fall.

In an email to NPR, Bradshaw conceded that the 2012 election postmortem was "obviously a failure," given that President Donald Trump had taken over the party in 2016 by explicitly ignoring its recommendations about taking a more inclusive approach to immigration reform.

However, she also seemed to think that the GOP's bill for not becoming a more inclusive party had finally come due given its failures to govern through a deadly pandemic that so far has claimed the lives of 137,000 Americans with no end in sight.
