Wisconsin man charged with murdering his landlord over $30 rent increase

Published

A Wisconsin man has been charged with shooting his landlord in the back of the head over a $30 rent increase.

Jason Tilley, 37, of a south Milwaukee suburb is facing charges of first-degree murder, possessing a firearm after a previous felony conviction, hiding a corpse and operating a motor vehicle without owner’s consent.

Police say that Tilley met with his landlord on March 1 in the garage of the apartment complex where Tilley lived. The landlord’s body was found there the next day, wrapped in a blanket with a single gunshot wound to the back of his head.

The landlord’s car was later found about seven miles away. Police obtained surveillance footage which they say shows Tilley getting out of the car and catching a bus.

Police say they questioned Tilley and that the ex-felon said he paid the landlord $560 in cash for rent but was told he owned another $30, which angered him. The landlord looked away, and Tilley shot him in the back of the head using a pistol he had in his pocket, according to the charges filed. Tilley then allegedly rolled the corpse for money and car keys and drove to Walmart to buy new clothes, then to a facility where he provided a urine sample for his probation officer, and then to the bar “to have some beers and shots.”

As the Beast notes, "The super PAC America First Action reported receiving a $325,000 contribution last year from a company called Global Energy Producers. But records released in federal court this week indicate that contribution came from an entirely different company," adding that the discrepancy was pointed out by the  Campaign Legal Center which labeled it a violation of federal campaign-finance laws.

Senate delivers stinging bipartisan rebuke to Trump — and blocks Saudi arms sales

Published

on

The Trump White House suffered a stinging defeat on Thursday when a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers voted to block sales of American arms to Saudi Arabia.

The vote in favor of blocking the arms sales received affirmative votes from all Senate Democrats, as well as votes from Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Susan Collins (R-ME), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Lee (R-UT) and Todd Young (R-IN).

Graham, who is usually one of President Donald Trump's staunchest allies, said he voted for the bill because he believed the United States could not ignore the behavior of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, as well as the Saudi government's killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
