Utah man sent to jail for fight over church seats - seattlepi.com: A 52-year-old man accused of punching another man and hitting him with his car in a dispute over pew space in Utah has been ordered to spend 30 days in jail.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1rD1OLL ) Wayne Dodge was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge. He was also ordered to complete an anger management class and pay a fine.
Weber County deputies say the fight happened last June at a Mormon meetinghouse during a crowded service that included a baby blessing and a missionary farewell.
Authorities say Dodge sat in a section that another family had saved in hopes of getting a good view of the baby blessing.
Dodge is accused of punching the man after the service, and striking him with his vehicle in the parking lot.
Congressman was executed and replaced by robot body double, failed opponent claims - Mirror Online: A US congressman was replaced by a lookalike robot after being hanged in a televised execution in southern Ukraine, according to his failed election challenger.
Timothy Ray Murray, who unsuccessfully opposed congressman Frank Lucas in last week's Oklahoma Republican primary, made the astonishing claim on his website.
He says he will be contesting the election and demands Lucas' votes be transferred to him, because "it is widely known Rep. Frank D. Lucas is no longer alive."
Alleged robot Lucas won Tuesday's election with 82% of the vote, compared to 5.2% of Oklahomans who voted for genuine human being Murray.
Chinese Man Dies After Heart Is Ripped Out Of His Chest & Eaten Following A Fight About Noodles
SUIZHOU, China, June 30 (UPI) --A Chinese man was killed when his throat was slit and his still-beating heart was pulled out of his chest following a fight about noodles.
Bo Tuan allegedly carried out the brutal attack on Yul Liao because the victim turned down Tuan's request to share a bowl of noodles.
The 29-year-old and Liao began arguing and then Tuan allegedly pulled out a knife.
Tuan then allegedly slit the 48-year-old's throat and continued to brutalize his body.
"It was bloody and horrifying and I can't get the images out of my mind. He sliced the man open like he was a bag of rice, and pulled his heart out in front of us all, I swear it was still beating," an eyewitness told the Daily Mirror. "Several people fainted; I wish I could have fainted. I can't stop seeing it even when I close my eyes."
After Tuan had the heart in his hands, he began taking occasional bites out of it while wandering around outside the noodle shop.
When officers arrived 40 minutes later, Tuan did not fight or resist while being taken into custody.
