Pennsylvania Pastor Kills Second Wife- Faces Trial - Pastor Arthur Schirmer is facing trial for the 2008 death of his wife. Schirmer and his wife Betty were involved in what looked like a bad car accident. The pastor told police that he had swerved the vehicle to avoid hitting a deer and hit a tree, which ended in his wife’s head hitting the windshield. It wasn’t until 2010 when a man broke into the pastor’s office and killed himself that police reopened Betty’s case for investigation. It came to light that Betty and the man who committed suicide were having an affair. Police have determined that the car crash was staged to cover up Schirmer’s murder of his wife. In 1999 Schirmer’s first wife died under suspicious circumstances after she allegedly fell down a flight of stairs. Jury selection for the cases are set to start today.

Bank Robber Gets Caught Masturbating - A man who was suspected of robbing a bank was caught the next day masturbating in public! On New Years Eve the man walked into a Seattle bank and passed the teller a note saying he had a bomb and demanded the money. After he got the money he ran. The next day police officers got calls about a man who appeared to be masturbating in front of a car dealership. The man looked very similar to the bank suspect so he was taken into custody. He claims that he was not playing with himself but that he was trying to hide money in his pants.
Cat Used In Prison Smuggling Attempt - A little white cat in a Brazilian prison turned out to be a criminal! The kitty was caught slipping through prison gates with cell phones, drills, saws and other contraband taped to its body. Officers are saying that all of the prison’s 263 inmates are suspects in the smuggling mission. None of the investigators speak “meow” so it will be hard to determine the true culprits.
Man Has Been Waiting 30 Years For A Re-Trial - Jerry Hartfield was 26 years old when he was told to pack up his belongings because his murder conviction had been overturned and he would be leaving prison. 30 years later he is still awaiting the re-trial in a Texas prison. The original case was overturned because one of the jurors was wrongly dismissed from duty after expressing reservations about the death penalty. In 1977 Hartfield was charged with robbing and beating a 55 year old bus ticketing agent to death with a pickaxe. Because of court technicalities it’s not likely that Hartfield will see a judge any time soon. He says that he is not angry that he has spent most of his adult life in jail and that he holds no grudges.
