Today In Terribleness: Catherine Kieu Becker Puts Husband’s Penis In Garbage Disposal

Remember the name Catherine Kieu Becker because she is the new Lorena Bobbit. Last night, the 48-year-old California woman poisoned her husband’s dinner, tied him to the bed, cut his penis off with a knife, tossed it in the garbage disposal, and turned it on. Why? Becker told officers that her husband “deserved it.” Even though the couple was in the middle of a divorce, police did not find her motive acceptable. Ahem. I don’t believe there is anything a man could do to warrant his penis ending up in the garbage disposal. Becker was arrested and charged with aggravated mayhem, false imprisonment, assault with a deadly weapon, administering a drug with intent to commit a felony, poisoning and spousal abuse. Feel free to place your hands protectively over your crotch now, men and women. [KTLA] Keep reading »

The Casey Anthony Madness Continues

A week later, we are still in shock that Casey Anthony was found not guilty of murdering her daughter, Caylee, and is scheduled to be released this Sunday. Apparently, the rest of the country is in the same state. Juror number 12 in the case, a redheaded woman in her 60s, quit her part-time job at a Publix grocery store and has gone into hiding. Apparently, she received several death threats and was freaked out about the possibility of retaliation for the verdict. She told her husband on the way out the door, “I’d rather go to jail than sit on a jury like this again.”

Meanwhile, the police were called to settle a squabble between a group of Florida fisherman over the case. Keep reading »

Lindsay Lohan Implies That She Should Never Have Gone To Jail

“Unless you’re a killer, I don’t see a reason to stay there. I never hurt anyone but myself.”

Lindsay Lohan looks adorable on the cover of Italian Vanity Fair. Too bad that inside she kind of backtracked on the whole “I accept my punishment and am working hard to move on” stance she’d taken earlier this year. Really, Lindsay, you think only murderers should go to jail? That’s just not how society works. [ONTD]

Juror #3 In The Casey Anthony Trial Said The Verdict Made Her “Sick”

“I toggled on manslaughter and not guilty. It doesn’t feel good. It was a horrible decision to have to make. I did not say she was innocent. I just said there was not enough evidence. If you cannot prove what the crime was, you cannot determine what the punishment should be … Everyone wonders why we didn’t speak to the media right away. It was because we were sick to our stomach to get that verdict. We were crying, and not just the women. It was emotional and we weren’t ready. We wanted to do it with integrity and not contribute to the sensationalism of the trial.”

—Jennifer Ford, a 32-year-old nursing student and juror number three in the Casey Anthony trial, discusses the not-guilty verdict that has sparked outrage across the country. [ABC News] Keep reading »

Casey Anthony Sentenced To 4 Years For Lying To Police [UPDATED]

UPDATE: After calculating time served and good behavior, it was determined that Casey Anthony only has six days left to serve in her four year sentence and will be released next Wednesday, July 13. Oof. [CNN]

Casey Anthony, who was acquitted on Tuesday of murdering her two-year-old daughter Caylee in 2008, was sentenced today for the four misdemeanors she was found guilty of. Judge Belvin Perry sentenced Anthony to a year in jail for each charge of lying to the police and was ordered to pay $4000 in fines. Her defense lawyers wanted the four charges to be reduced to one charge for sentencing, arguing that they were all part of the same act, but the judge didn’t bite. Still, don’t expect Anthony to actually spend the next four years in prison. Time served will be applied to her sentence, as will possible deductions for good behavior, and it’s very possible Anthony will be out of jail by the end of the summer. [CNN] Keep reading »
